When the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians took over its social services from the state of North Carolina, the tribe needed an easy way to communicate during the transition. Having recently moved their on-premises video conferencing to the cloud, the tribe decided to deploy Lifesize Inc.'s Skype for Business integration to facilitate video conferencing in the cloud. "We went from a state-run system to by ourselves -- that required a lot of meetings," said Jeremy Brown, multimedia specialist with the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians. To facilitate the transition of social services, the tribe needed a conferencing system that could be installed quickly to support a large amount of calls within and outside the tribe.
