Winston & Strawn, one of the largest international law firms, will begin using AT&T* Telepresence Solution®, an immersive video communications solution, to connect participants in Chicago, New York and San Francisco to clients and partners across the world. Telepresence will help Winston & Strawn address business challenges and opportunities in a timely, cost-effective manner while maintaining the interaction crucial for establishing and enhancing client relationships.
"To best meet the challenges of our global client base, it is essential for us to be able to deliver outstanding client service despite distance," said Chip Goodman, CIO at Winston & Strawn. "AT&T Telepresence Solution, enabled by Cisco TelePresence®, allows us to provide our clients with convenience and flexibility, and changes the way we are able to collaborate with other offices. And not only will we be able to save our clients money and time, but this technology also helps us achieve our environmental goals by reducing carbon emissions."
Additionally, Winston & Strawn will leverage the AT&T Business Exchange – a "meet-me" business-to-business global collaboration technology that allows multiple companies in different locations to connect to one another – to enable greater collaboration between its clients and business partners.
How AT&T Telepresence Solution Works
More than 100 companies and organizations are connecting with one another via thousands of endpoints on the AT&T Business Exchange.
The technology creates the experience of being in the same room with remote participants, whether they are down the street or halfway around the world. Participants sit across the table from an "actual-size" video of their colleagues and can converse through spatial, wide-band audio.
The AT&T Telepresence Solution, enabled by Cisco TelePresence, allows Winston & Strawn's employees from locations around the world to interact face-to-face through ultra-high definition 1080p screens, allowing real-time intra- and intercompany collaboration across AT&T's reliable network. By providing the equipment, installation, full monitoring, maintenance and management of the application, AT&T Telepresence Solution saves time and money and provides a sustainable and reliable communication tool for the firm and its clients.
