The Customer

Being an Indian conglomerate, we see a substantial transmogrification in customers’ preferences. Staying connected and safe is the only gravity of one’s life. Since the first wave last year, we kick-started “VideoMeet”, a secure in-transit Video conferencing and Webinar Platform, at a time when GOI, was pressing questions via a hearing headed by Chief Justice SA Bobde. He had issued notices to the Central government and Zoom Video seeking their written responses on “Poor privacy and security of the application”. It was just then that the GOI, Ministry of Home Affairs had passed an advisory not to use Zoom.


VideoMeet being a home-grown app professes an end-to-end enterprise solution. It has the best in-audio-video quality on the web as well as the app. The platform also follows webinar best practices as a solution and manages your online events solution. It also consists of an AI-driven video conferencing, on which you can create a background in your personalised meeting room, can record your meeting for broadcasting and streaming. We also have a new feature - the break-out rooms, with over and above – API Integration to almost every LMS, CRM, HRIS, and website.

The Challenge

Lockdown and curbs have led to the inability of opening shops; not able to reach and meet customers. And since the usual business operations apart from essentials are not open, it has led to a weak economy with more than 10 million job losses. This needs immediate attention. With all intent and purpose, humans are socialites. So, we are in dire need of an easy one-click digital solution to reach the customers, without compromising upon privacy.
