PC Jeweller engages in the manufacture, export, wholesale, and retail of gold and diamond jewellery and has several large, standalone stores at high street locations across India. The company has showrooms located across 37 cities in 15 states, including Guwahati, Jammu, Noida, Gurgaon and Bengaluru. With several teams spread across multiple sites, including most in remote locations, collaborating on product design, inspection, and stock-related issues is an essential part of the daily business operations for the company. Prior to the deployment of the videoconferencing solutions, long distances between offices presented a challenge with PCJ’s many business units spread across the country. This meant significant travel requirements and less effective, costly collaboration.

The suite of video collaboration solutions deployed at PC Jeweller includes the Polycom RealPresence® Group Series at all PC Jeweller outlets, for staff to collaborate over product reviews with co-workers, and sample showcases for buyers. For the company, video was seen as an essential way to transform teamwork on new projects, training on new software, internal meetings and employee reviews.

“Video collaboration is a mission-critical application in our day-to-day business – whether for internal purposes or for communication across all PCJ units,” said Mr. Balram Garg, Managing Director, PCJ. “Polycom offers a broad range of cost-effective, High Definition video collaboration solutions, which have enabled us a new way of conducting business without the need for frequent travel across large distances. This in itself, has not only helped us achieve significant savings in time and travel cost, but also establish a better work-life balance for many employees. PCJ customers now interact with our Designer Section across all showrooms for made-to-order designs or other modifications.”

Based on open standards to ensure interoperability in multi-vendor environments, the RealPresence Platform transforms islands of remote and on-site employees, and fragmented communications systems, into a seamless video enterprise that makes enterprise-grade video easily and securely accessible to all authorised personnel.
