Genesis of the Global Leader in Video Conferencing – UCS

Do you remember the Reliance Web World which is in every city nook? Web stores offered something for everyone to be connected to the new booming economy of Internet Services. Firmly believing in the need and owning a vision for a “connected India”, we took over and started as VCNOW in 2014. We were the innovators of an entire retail VC ecosystem in the former years when video had just kicked off and organizing a VC for even a large corporation was quite a bit of a chore. What started as a venture to help our existing customers continue to manage their VC connections transformed and accelerated the work that the earlier team was doing, supported by the ecosystem of ex-colleagues, Business / Channel Partners, Vendors, Customers, etc.

Enterprise VC Customers and Top Management Institutes reflected their trust in us and continued to associate with us as we grew from strength to strength. Our solutions have evolved by solving customer challenges which are then productized in the form of services or products, e.g., Live Real-time Translations in Meetings, Customer Shop Along, AI insights, e-AGMs, Virtual Events etc., We are often the Go-To Team in the VC, AV SI, Events, Market Research or Exec Education space when customers are faced with challenges. We built our reputation backed by “Mission Critical VIP Top Management Events” where “Nothing Can GO WRONG” – grounded in thorough checks and multiple backup plans and rekee.
