    How does Bank Pocztowy S.A Solve his Communication Challenges

The use of video conferencing has the potential to increase productivity and efficiency by reducing unproductive travel time, preventing meeting delays, creating shorter and more structured meetings and allowing for greater reach of a message. 

Bank Pocztowy S.A. is one of the major commercial banks in Poland, and controlled by Poczta Polska S.A. and PKOBP S.A., the largest bank in Poland. With nearly 300 branch organizations in Poland, the bank serves about 1400 mid-and small-sized enterprises, which plays an important role in driving economic development.

In the recent years, with the increasingly expanding services, and more and more branch organizations, Bank Pocztowy S.A. faces three challenges in terms of business operation.

  1. Traditional means of communication, such as phones and emails fails to meet increasing requirements for daily communication, dramatically affecting business efficiency;
  2. Second, the frequent business trips result in huge costs, affecting enterprise operation efficiency.
  3. Company staff can’t communicate with other team members on their business trips to help customers solve problems in an efficient manner.

Therefore, Bank Pocztowy S.A. wishes to construct a brand new video conferencing system to improve internal communication and collaboration efficiency. Bank Pocztowy S.A. has finally chosen Huawei video conferencing system after serious consideration.

In the first phase, eight high-definition (HD) video conferencing TE40 endpoints, over 200 TE series soft clients, SMC2.0 (system management center), SC (switch center) as well as MCUs (multi-point control unit) are deployed, which builds a new bridge for communication among various branch organizations.

To provide financial services for medium-and small-sized enterprises, banks need to communicate often. The video conferencing endpoint supports dual 1080p60 video and AAC-LD wideband audio, and provides outstanding adaptability, which enables high-definition video to be delivered even under severe environment. Staying in office, staff among various branch organizations can communicate face to face, saving time and improving efficiency.

Besides, the endpoints also supports wireless connection of endpoints, array microphones and touch panels, simplifying system deployment and facilitating use.
