Polycom video solutions power Bajaj Group’s efforts to streamline operations

Telecom Lead India: Bajaj Group is using Polycom RealPresence video solutions to streamline its operations and reduce Opex costs.

The Polycom video solutions will also enhance collaboration between the company’s corporate headquarters in Mumbai and Noida, its group companies, and six power plants, operated by the Energy division, in remote locations across India.

Polycom said the solution helped the company significantly improve delivery times on projects and reduce its travel and downtime manifold, going up to 70 percent in the space of 12 months, whilst also enhancing the productivity of its workers and cutting down on carbon emissions.

Bajaj Group currently employs over 15,000 people across India. With its power plants currently dispersed across six remote locations in India, some 1,500 kilometers from the corporate headquarters, its site employees faced challenges in communication and project execution due to their isolated locations and lack of basic amenities.

Thanks to Polycom, Bajaj Group has increased efficiencies across its business units, namely for the energy sector, and enhanced collaboration across employee communications, business-critical processes and executive board meetings.

Bajaj Group readily adopted the solutions for its ease and convenience by conducting internal meetings, project reviews, HR interviews, and training across distances, in real-time.

The company has already witnessed increasing demand and usage for the video conferencing solutions and will look to expand the solution further across its various business units, providing equal access to the video conferencing facilities to all employees from management down to junior staff.

“Polycom’s range of video solutions provide the high-definition quality, multi-party, face-to-face meeting experience we require to aid project-related and corporate-level discussions, making it easier for us to reach out to our remote sites, or to be reached instantly, regardless of location,” said Kushagra Nayan Bajaj, vice chairman of Bajaj Group.

“In a power plant environment, frequent and immediate communication with corporate headquarters is especially necessary for Bajaj Energy to ensure uninterrupted operations and business continuity,” said Dinesh Kumar, CIO, Bajaj Energy.

“Polycom is focused on providing complete end-to-end unified communications and collaboration solutions to meet our customers’ needs,” said Neeraj Gill, managing director, India & SAARC, Polycom.

Bajaj Group will incorporate mobility solutions such as the Polycom RealPresence Mobile for tablets and smartphones.
