Case Study: Caliber Properties


Tackling Coordination Challenges in a Growing Company

Caliber Properties, a prominent real estate firm in South Africa, faced a common challenge as they expanded: coordinating effective meetings across different cities and countries.

This geographical spread led to inefficiencies and decreased productivity, particularly in their crucial decision-making processes.

The Requirement

A Versatile BYOD Video Conferencing Solution

Caliber Properties approached us with a specific need: a video conferencing system that could support a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) approach and was compatible with various platforms such as Microsoft Teams, Zoom, and Google Meet.

The solution had to be user-friendly and suitable for groups of up to 8 people.


Poly Studio USB Videobar

To address their needs, we recommended the Poly Studio USB videobar.

This device was chosen for its:

  • Echo Fence Technology: Ensures that only audio within a certain range is captured, minimizing distractions.
  • Automatic Group Framing and Speaker Tracking: Optimizes the video feed based on who is speaking, giving a natural meeting experience.
  • High-Definition Video and Audio: Provides a crisp and clear meeting experience, akin to being in the same room.
  • Ease of Connectivity: Enables users to connect their laptops via HDMI, simplifying the process of joining video calls.

Implementation and Results

Enhanced Productivity and Time Efficiency

The implementation of the Poly Studio USB videobar transformed meeting experiences at Caliber Properties:

  • Seamless Meeting Experience: Team members could effortlessly connect to meetings, share screens, and collaborate as if they were in the same room, despite geographical distances.
  • Increased Productivity: Caliber Properties experienced a significant uptick in productivity and a reduction in wasted time, attributable to the enhanced efficiency of their meetings.
  • User-Friendly Technology: The ease of use of the Poly Studio USB videobar meant that all team members, regardless of their technical expertise, could participate fully in the collaborative process.
