I have been reminded over the last few days of my 20 year anniversary at AuDeo with some very kind messages from those I’ve known for many years. It made me think about what has happened in that time. In technology, a year can be a long time, I guess, so the list can be endless. However, my own personal shortlist would be internet, Blu Ray movies & mobile phones, all of which were not around when I started AuDeo but all I cannot do without today.
In my industry, however, I have seen only ONE revolutionary change, in my view. Polycom launched the ViewStation in 1998 and for me it was twice as good and half the price of anything else out there……it was a winner. Added to this that it was easy to use (at least versus other devices) and much simpler to install meant the demand almost grew exponentially.
However, since then, we have seen products and devices come along an evolutionary path. Yes there came IP and High Definition, but these only provided easier connectivity or better looking pictures using the same fundamental idea.
In recent years this has all changed with the emergence of Cloud Video Conferencing. Put the intelligence in the Cloud allowing devices to be more controlled, easier to use and more cost effective to procure.
AuDeo is a StarLeaf reseller and I believe StarLeaf is at the forefront of this NEW revolution. In my 20 years, the StarLeaf solution is the best offering I have ever seen for the money, for the users and for AuDeo. StarLeaf is going great for AuDeo and we are looking to expand with hiring of a BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT EXECUTIVE to help us find the next set of customers who can benefit from what we and StarLeaf are offering.
So if you are interested, want to be part of the next revolution or if you know someone who would fit, get in touch. You know where to find me.
I am already looking forward to the next 20 years……although on second thoughts, perhaps just 10 would be preferable.
