iQIYI has implemented what it refers to as its intelligent office system based on unified communications (UC) and collaboration apps from Avaya. The system, already in place before pandemic-related remote work actions were implemented, enables thousands of iQIYI staff to work from anywhere seamlessly, with the same capabilities and access to business applications as if they were working in the office.
“As one of the fastest-growing streaming businesses in the world, we believe that our employees play a key role in our success formula. Building a dynamic and flexible working environment is a priority, so even before the global pandemic, it was important that they could make use of work-from-anywhere capabilities. This meant that when measures were taken to slow the spread of the pandemic, our workforce was already prepared,” said Wen Qi, IT Manager, iQIYI.
The ability for employees to have meetings, collaborate and access resources seamlessly from anywhere is just a small benefit to iQIYI’s wide-ranging unified communications overhaul. Avaya has worked closely with the company to fully integrate its communications platform with HR and IT business processes, and iQIYI has begun integrating its custom, in-house applications with the platform, including its own custom-designed endpoints.
