Next Steps

ASELCO Uses Cisco TelePresence® SX20 Quick Set

Company: Agusan Del Sur Electric Cooperative, Inc ASELCO

Industry: Electric Cooperative

Location: Agusan Del Sur, Philippines

Size: 105,986 members as of March 2016

ASELCO, Agusan Del Sur Electric Cooperative, Inc, a not-for-profit cooperative, began operations in 1977 with the mission of energy equality by empowering every home with electricity access. They need to gather at least 5% of their members in their Annual Assembly to discuss, pass and approve projects. They managed to meet this requirement with Cisco Telepresence SX20 Quick Set.

Challenge

  • Difficulty meeting attendance criteria for Annual General Membership Assembly (AGMA)
  • Ballooning costs due to transporting over 4,000 attendees to AGMA location
  • Less efficiency and productivity as too much time and money spent on coordinating transport

Solution

  • Cisco Telepresence® SX20 Quick Set:
  • Cisco® TelePresence MultiSite technology
  • Cisco TelePresence Multipoint Switch
  • Cisco Unified Communications Manager

Results

  • Easier, more effective member participation and communications
  • Higher efficiency, productivity and transparency in daily operations
  • Better utilization of funds and resources to serve member needs
The SX20 system enables direct communication and helps us conduct more productive, efficient, and transparent meetings . . . in different locations.
