Australian Sports Commission Gets More Play With Verizon Business Conferencing Solutions
The Australian Sports Commission (ASC) is the Australian Government body that manages, develops, and invests in sport at all levels throughout the country. With operations both in Canberra and around the country, and with athletes and coaches travelling overseas several times throughout the year, it's important for the ASC to be able to contact staff quickly and easily to share information and provide updates. Until 2005, the ASC relied on teleconferencing or videoconferencing to link people when they could not fly them out to distant locations for meetings. However, it found these options inflexible for many of its requirements. In 2005, the ASC canvassed web conferencing solutions from several vendors and selected Verizon Business Conferencing Solutions, a hosted service based on collaboration applications provider WebEx.
