VC resellers and integrators at Imago Expo 2011

VC distributor Imago Group’s London Expo attracted more than 140 current and prospective resellers, integrators and others interested in the VC market. Exhibits in London’s Vinopolis included all of Imago’s brands supplemented by a seminar programme with keynotes from Richard Norris of Wainhouse Research and of Heather McInroy of Business In The Community.Norris described the growth in sales to corporates at the desktop level as ‘steady’ and growth in telepresence as ‘rapid’, but expressed doubt that this growth at the high-end is sustainable. Norris believes that the future of VC is about personal and desktop solutions linked to unified communications deployments.

McInroy described initiatives to persuade businesses to behave in a socially and environmentally responsible way. She drew attention to the contribution of business travel to carbon emissions and measures being introduced to encourage alternatives to business travel by the National Business Travel Network, of which VC is obviously one. McInroy assured delegates that the current government is very pro-VC and anticipated imminent action to further promote its adoption. Asked to summarise the business community’s attitude to adopting sustainable travel policies she concluded that: “Corporates are getting it – SMEs are not.”
