Orgill Integrates Zoom Technology For Online Buying Event

Orgill, Inc. is partnering with Zoom, an online video communications platform, to integrate the company’s meeting technology into its e-Volution platform. Orgill announced earlier this year that it will host its first-ever e-Volution online buying event August 24 to September 4. The combination of these technology platforms will allow retailers to see calendar availability for vendors, schedule meetings, and initiate Zoom video conferences all within the e-Volution framework. “Our systems will completely manage the availability of all the participants, and their respective time zones, and allow retailers to easily schedule time with Orgill vendors during the two-week event window,” says Marc Hamer, executive vice-president and chief digital information officer, Orgill. “The dealers will also have the option of including their Orgill sales representative in any of the meetings they schedule allowing them to have a completely interactive experience.” Because the Zoom software will be integrated into the e-Volution platform, participants will be able to use the video conferencing capabilities even if they do not have their own Zoom account.
