CGG staff onboard ships around the globe now linked to corporate voice and data platform via Data Marine Services

xstreammedia has supplied and installed a state of the art communications solution integrating telephony and video conferencing for CGG, a leading supplier of geophysical services and products. The new systems will be used to improve communications between CGG in the UK & its many offices around the world, as well as providing substantial reductions in business travel costs. The new solution also means CGG staff working onboard the company’s fleet of ships, used to provide seismic-based reservoir solutions to the oil and gas industry, are now linked to corporate telephony systems via services provided by Data Marine Services allowing them access to features such as DDI, voice processing and least cost routing.

xstreammedia supplied two Avaya Index 400 voice & data platforms which have been installed at CGG’s offices in London and Surrey and are linked by a two megabit leased line. xstreammedia also supplied an integrated DECT system, centralised voicemail and two multi-point videoconferencing units connected to high resolution ceiling mounted Epsom projectors which beam images onto large electronic screens.

David Sugden, IT Manager at CGG said, “The new telephone system provides extra facilities to staff like voicemail and ‘follow-me Hot Desking” and is part of CGG’s strategy to streamline voice and data networks giving staff a better working environment resulting in greater productivity.”

Tony Maynard, Office Services Team Leader commented, “Video conferencing will allow us to have meetings with our colleagues in other countries much more quickly and easily than if we were to meet face-to-face. It not only saves precious time, but also cuts staff business travel costs significantly.”

Jeff Siggers, Sales Director at xstreammedia said, “Companies like CGG that have operations around the world are able to make huge cost savings by utilising technology to get the best out of their corporate communications infrastructure. xstreammedia is able to help companies choose the best equipment to answer their communications requirements and then install that equipment ensuring that it meets those needs, both now and in the future.”
