What’s Holding Telehealth Back?

Thu, November 3, 2016

Telehealth has made dramatic inroads in recent years. What once was only a futurist dream, is currently an every-day reality. Now that telehealth is within the treatment arsenals of most care providers, patients interact with their doctors and receive quality healthcare with no geographic limits.

Millennials – Here Today, Here to Stay, Working from Away

Fri, October 7, 2016

These days, it’s hard to not talk about Millennials when trying to understand how the workplace is evolving. Everyone has their own idea of what this demographic represents, but the starting point should be based on the numbers. In terms of age, Millennials are generally classified as being born between 1980 and 2000, and according to the U.S. Census Bureau, they account for 27% of the overall U.S. population. Not only does this make them the largest segment by age grouping, but they are now coming into their prime both as users of technology, and in due time, technology decision-makers inside their places of work.

Yorktel’s Inclusion in The Growing Business Handbook 2016

Back to School

Mon, September 12, 2016

back-to-school-banner-croppedSeptember, the beginning of a new school year – which for some of us will mean nothing more than the traffic getting worse again or that it’s the start of the countdown to Christmas.  For others, who are working parents, it also signals recommencing the daily juggling act of work, home and school commitments.

Why Our Customers Believe Every Meeting Can be on Video

Wed, July 6, 2016

I’ve been with Yorktel for 14 years and as you can imagine, I’ve seen a lot of video technology innovation – though you’d miss the evolution if you blinked! If you could see the changes that we see when our customers enable video into their day-to-day operations, you’d be as enthusiastic as they are about it. Yorktel has been in the collaboration business a long time, and we know how to make video work. What I find, however, is a lack of awareness among many enterprises about how video can add business value.

Yorktel’s privilege to honour Veterans and Memorial Day

Thu, May 26, 2016


With Memorial Day around the corner, I want to reflect on our work throughout the year on productions involving or supporting America’s men and women in uniform. There are many within the Yorktel family who have served our country or have family members who have or are currently serving in the armed forces.

 Stories of American veterans’ service, sacrifice and heroism are especially important to us.
