More and more companies have discovered the power of digital, and the value of offering video calls. The next question is: which video call technology to use? Traditional suppliers of video meeting software such as Skype may work for internal meetings, but are not ideal for handling customer interactions. Customer communication needs to be personal, secure and engaging.
Modern tools such as WebRTC have what it takes.

What is WebRTC?
Let’s start by explaining shortly what WebRTC is all about. It’s a free, open project which provides real-time communications on both your browsers and mobile applications. More importantly, it’s already automatically integrated and backed by the big giants of the Internet such as Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Microsoft Edge. This means that for a WebRTC-based video call, your customers don’t need to download anything or create any accounts.
How does WebRTC work?
With traditional video call software, all data goes through a centralized server using complicated codes. WebRTC technologies, on the other hand, use a peer-to-peer connection, which means that you and your customer are connected directly without any third party.
And on top of live video connections, you can also use the flexible WebRTC technology for file exchanges, media, and audio communication.
5 reasons to choose WebRTC over other video meeting software
1. Avoid downloads and installations
Every (online) Customer Engagement solution should focus on putting the customer first. This means that making the customer experience as easy and engaging as possible is key. 24sessions is built on cutting-edge WebRTC technology, which means that you or your customers do not have to download any software. Just open your browser or your laptop or mobile device and you can start video calling.
2. Endless possibilities for integration and customization
One big advantage of WebRTC is the fact that the tool can be fully integrated and tailored to your specific needs. Would you like to integrate video calling into your own website or app? No problem.
See WebRTC as a building block that can be combined with others to develop exactly what you need. From scheduling to reviews and analytics.
3. Ready to scale
Unlike traditional online video meeting providers, WebRTC lets browsers communicate directly. This means that it’s much more lightweight and scalable. Its scalable infrastructure provides a professional solution for your company, allowing you to easily increase the number of video calls you're doing with customers.
