Tely Labs Helps E-Commerce Expert One World Direct Strengthen Company Culture
Redwood City, Calif. – August 26, 2014 – Tely Labs, the leader in simple, secure and affordable video conferencing solutions, today announced that One World Direct implemented its telyHD Pro appliances and telyCloud service to improve internal communications as the company experiences rapid growth.
“Stable connections, clear picture quality and ease of use combined with the affordable price point make the telyHD a brilliant choice,” commented Bob Fulkerson, director of e-commerce. “We don’t need IT support to hold a meeting, and we love that it doesn’t require a lot of hand-holding. Our managers find video meetings much more productive than phone calls. They like to make eye contact with everyone present and confirm that they have everyone’s attention.”
One World Direct offers a full range of value-added, direct-to-business logistics services and direct-to-consumer services that can encompass anything from delivering thousands of products to consumers in a single day to shopping cart integration and custom gift-wrapping for e-tailers.
In the past two years, One World Direct has expanded at a rapid pace- growing from one to four locations to accommodate a workforce that is now comprised of 200 people. With this growth came the need to maintain its tight-knit, personal culture. To ensure employees maintained close contact with their colleagues in other locations, One World Direct turned to videoconferencing – specifically Tely Labs’s telyHD system – because of its affordability, functionality and simplicity.
One World Direct uses their Tely Labs appliances and the included telyCloud™ cloud-based service to share video, voice and content between up to six different locations, without the need for any other hardware, software or subscriptions. This ability to connect across locations streamlines operations and improves the overall efficacy of the workforce.
“This is great example of how a plug-and-play approach to video communications is improving productivity while reducing costs for SMB organizations,” said Dave Crilley, Vice President of Marketing at Tely Labs. “TelyLabs’s appliance and cloud combination brings video conferencing and content sharing to any meeting space, at unprecedented value.”
About One World Direct
With a UPS account, a 2400 baud modem and a fancy plain paper fax machine, One World Distribution opened its doors for business in 1994. However, with the Web’s rapid emergence and the creation of direct-to-consumer e-tailing, the word “Distribution” became less appropriate. To better reflect its focus on direct-to-consumer fulfillment, call center and e-commerce services, One World dropped “Distribution” from its name and became One World Direct.
One World’s client base ranges from Fortune 500 conglomerates to celebrities and e-tailers of all sizes. Our clients represent many market sectors, including vitamins and nutraceuticals, fitness, publishing, electronics, apparel, health and beauty and many more.
One World has won numerous awards in its community, as well as Inc. Magazine’s Top 10 Growing with Technology Award and the ATSI Call Center Award of Distinction. The company is a member of a number of professional organizations and supports civic organizations through its non-profit, the Second Century Foundation.
