Define your video conferencing requirements and wish list

Your company's business and technical video conferencing requirements are important to define before you start talking to vendors and drafting RFPs. This list of questions will help identify the priorities of a video conferencing implementation.

Because video conferencing can be a costly endeavor, it's important to evaluate your company's business and technical video conferencing requirements before you start talking to vendors and drafting RFPs. Be sure to discuss the following questions with your IT and executive team to ensure expectations are clear and you can achieve the best possible results.

  • What is the problem you need to solve or goal you'd like to achieve with your video conferencing implementation?
  • How many users will the system support, and what's the prediction for growth?
  • What are the users' expectations for video and audio quality and experience? If they vary, can you address different classes of users in different ways?
  • Do you have existing equipment or software you'd like to leverage or interoperate with?
  • Do you have IT expertise to support video conferencing in house, or will you need external support?
