Until a few years ago video conferencing solutions were built on costly hardware systems that were rigid, hard to scale and resource-heavy, and therefore often restricted to use by top management in large companies.
The founders of Pexip foresaw that there would be a movement in video conferencing from hardware to software and from software to cloud, and knew that with the right engineering and application, we could develop a platform to help enterprises benefit from these transitions. We have always believed that video conferencing should be democratized – that everyone in an organization should have access to communication tools that enable them to simply do what they need to do: meet.
