Movember is the only global charity focused solely on men’s health. From humble beginnings back in 2003, the Movember Foundation has grown to be truly global, operating across six markets and actively fundraising in 21 countries. Their mission is to stop men dying too young. It invests in these critical areas: prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health, and suicide prevention.
The Movember Foundation was using multiple voice-based communications platforms, which caused both confusion and a loss in productivity for the Movember team. Movember approached Zoom looking for a single new video communications solution that would consolidate their communications into one easy-to-use platform.
After analyzing the market for a new solution, the Movember Foundation decided that Zoom was the clear winner due to its ease of use, high-quality video and audio, and versatile features. Zoom was able to completely replace all five previous communication solutions at an extremely competitive price – around one tenth of other solutions under consideration.
In addition to consolidating the Movember Foundation’s communications under a single platform, Zoom deployed 16 software-based conference rooms, or Zoom Rooms, into their offices. “We love our Zoom Rooms. They’re so simple for end users. You just tap the screen once to start your meeting,” said Byron Hill, head of technology for the Movember Foundation.
In the first three months after switching to Zoom, the Movember Foundation averaged 160 active users on the Zoom platform, conducting almost 1,300 meetings per month. In total, the team logged almost 400,000 minutes in this time period.
“Being a global organization, it can be difficult to coordinate meetings across multiple countries and time zones. Zoom has helped us to become truly collaborative as an organization and save countless hours by bringing us under a single video conferencing solution,” said Hill.
