This platform is an enabler for UON to engage globally. Now more than ever it is imperative for UON to embrace technological advancements that support our presence as a leader on the global stage. I warmly encourage colleagues to consider the capabilities Zoom offers through:
1. User -friendly and intuitive design
2. High-quality connections
3. Exceptional functionality, with the ability to view and update shared files in real time
4. Cost-effectiveness, particularly with regards to international engagements
IAD recently utilised the platform to host a serials of online meetings which would otherwise have necessitated international travel. Colleagues were able to collaborate on complex data-sets and discuss highly sensitive material with international partners, resulting in fast and effective outcome delivery.

We are a research team delivering training to health professionals via webinar. We had a long list of requirements for our webinar software, and initially it seemed overwhelming trying to select one that and had all of the features (e.g. enable several presenters, easily switch screens, mute participants, allow participants to ask questions, custom registration, webinar recording, generate attendance reports etc.). Zoom has been perfect for us! The software is easy to operate, and easy to customize. I would definitely recommend it to anyone hosting large webinars, or even smaller meetings. Our webinar went seamlessly!
Another real positive has been having IT support. IT have been incredibly helpful and quick to provide assistance!

Zoom is a fundamental part of how we do business. For me, it’s never been easier to bring together communications working groups from across the organisation to set strategies for our major projects – even when we’re spread across campuses or further afield. While you can’t beat face to face, the Zoom technology is a pretty close second, and I’m especially impressed with how intuitive it is. And as a candidate who Zoomed into my University interview from Canada, I have a lot to thank Zoom for.
