OVERVIEW

Community Living Essex County is a non-profit, charitable organization that supports people with intellectual disabilities and their families in southwestern Ontario, Canada. The combination of Logitech GROUP, SmartDock with Surface Pro, and Skype for Business—each with amazing quality, clarity, and reliability—facilitates and enhances the organization’s face-to-face video collaboration, information sharing, clinical treatment consultations with physicians, and remote support for clients receiving services in their home, workplace, or community.

“We’ve done some studies to determine how much we’re able to save by moving to video conferencing for meetings. For an average meeting of one hour with eight managers attending, we’re saving about $500. When you look at those savings over the course of a year against the cost of our investment in Logitech video conferencing equipment, we’re quite happy with our return on investment.”
