Businesses are facing unprecedented challenges in how they market, sell, and stay connected in the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak. Event cancellations, travel restrictions, and remote work policies are making it increasingly difficult to engage prospects and customers, and to communicate effectively with internal employees.
As a video technology provider and growing business VidYard understands the importance of video-based communications in times of crisis and social distancing. Not only is it an efficient means of delivering critical information, video keeps us connected as colleagues, as teams, and as real people who are tackling monumental challenges, together.
The company wants to play a part in helping businesses of all shapes and sizes use the power of video to stay connected and productive in the difficult months ahead. Great companies like Google and Zoom have already extended use of their free video conferencing solutions during this time.
In addition to live video conferencing, on-demand videos and video messages (also known as video emails or video voicemails) can also play a vital role in disseminating information and communicating clearly with remote colleagues and customers. In many cases, it can be more effective to send a short personalized video than to draft a long email or coordinate a video call. To do so effectively, however, it needs to be quick to record, easy to share, and if meant for internal recipients, seamless to secure. And that’s where Vidyard is going to help.
Vidyard already offers free versions of their flagship video messaging app as well as their video hosting and publishing platform. These free tools continue to offer unlimited video capture, hosting, and sharing, making them great options to support expanded use of video when engaging remote prospects and customers.
Vidyard, in response to the challenges imposed by the pandemic, has introduced a new free offering, Vidyard for Internal Communications, to help remote workers stay connected with each other via secure video content and messaging. Built on our enterprise video platform, trusted by Fortune 100 organizations, this new offer enables executives and employees to easily record, secure, and share private videos in just a few clicks from their web browser and email app.
This is a solution that they have been working on for quite some time and were intending to launch as a paid offering in the coming months. But over the past two weeks the compnay decided to accelerate launch and make an Early Access version available at no cost to support businesses in this time of need.
Vidyard for Internal Communications will be offered at no cost to businesses until June 30th, 2020.
