Telepresence is technology that allows feeling of real presence in virtual meetings enabling people in different offices around the world to meet virtually via video call and transact business irrespective of distance.
Speaking during the official launch, AccessKenya Managing Director Kris Senanu said the company is committed to deploying high value technologies with the aim of improving the business environment and enhancing mobility for its clients.
“We are continuously investing in research for the best solutions for all our clients and will remain consistent in our delivery of service,” he said.
AccessKenya will be offering the Telepresence Solution as a Value Addition Service to its clients.
The Telepresence service is targeting corporate companies looking to achieve efficiency in their day-to-day business at a reasonably lower cost.
“In this time of high inflationary pressures and high cost of doing business, companies are looking to reduce overheads incurred on utility and concessional expenses such as travel. This technology provides a unique opportunity for any business to achieve this all year round,” Senanu said.
Last year, AccessKenya together in partnership with Aga Khan University Hospital showcased the country’s first Video Telesurgery using the High Definition Polycom HDX-8000 series equipment.
The telesurgery transmitted live surgical procedures at a Pan African Urological Surgeons’ Association (PAUSA) Conference held in Nairobi heralding a new age in telemedicine in Kenya.
“With this technology, most corporate organizations will be able to reduce their carbon footprint and this will greatly impact on the future of this globe,” Senanu said about the Telepresence product.
The solution was launched in partnership with Polycom through its Certified Reseller in the East African region – Sight & Sound Limited.
