How cloud videoconferencing is changing work at the ICAEW

Six months after switching to a cloud-based videoconferencing system, the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW) is starting to see some useful changes in the dynamics of meetings. Nothing radical so far — we are talking about the accountancy profession, which prefers to take a considered approach to change — but who knows what the future will bring?

Established in 1880 to provide professional qualifications for accountants, the Institute has grown to more than 147,000 members and has 700 employees. Most are based in the UK, either in Milton Keynes to the north of London or in its headquarters near Moorgate in the City of London. It also has offices in Belgium, in several Asian countries, and in Dubai.
