It’s always a good time to declutter, consolidate and reorganize your businesses’ video closet.

As video content becomes more pervasive through businesses — used in everything from employee training to corporate communications — companies both big and small are amassing so many internal videos scattered across their networks that they could fill libraries.

Surely something worth recording is worth sharing, which is why there is immense value in moving corporate video content to a private video hosting platform that makes it easier to share videos internally. But building a corporate video library just isn’t that simple.

Video can create a host of problems for typical LAN and content management systems (CMSs), which is how most businesses with good intention try to host video content. While LAN folders and CMSs (such as SharePoint) are great for managing document files, they fall short when it comes to hosting, sharing and searching video files across an organization.

If you didn’t know you needed a special content management system just for video, read more about the benefits of a video CMS.

Thinking about building a central and secure video library for your business? 

Should you build or buy a corporate video library?The cost savings associated with centralizing corporate videos that support internal communications, employee training, knowledge sharing, and more are massive. Microsoft, for example, built its own internal video portal for employee-generated content and saved nearly $14M annually.

But the cost of building your own corporate video library can also be substantial. Our latest white paper breaks down the specifics to help you decided whether to build or buy a video portal that enables the use of video across your organization. Download it for free today.
