An end-to-end video platform is an all-inclusive, comprehensive solution for businesses that covers every touch point in the video lifecycle. This covers the creation, management, distribution, analysis and everything in between. When it comes to businesses choosing a solution to suit their needs it can be difficult to ascertain the key features they need to be on the lookout for and what specifically they’ll need.
The decision-making process will most likely include the security features they’ll require, the financial cost, the level of support they will need, whether the platform will facilitate their communication needs and whether they’ll receive a good return on their investment. Partnering up with the right supplier is paramount for businesses wanting to make smart decisions. With a sea of options out there and a whole lot of software jargon, we here at Quickchannel understand how it can be challenging to see exactly what it is you’re going to get and what benefits it will have for your business.
The term end-to-end can mean different things to different people but to put it simply it reduces the need for businesses to use multiple tools to create compelling content to draw in the crowds. By reducing the number of tools needed, your work becomes more efficient, and your workflows are simplified saving you time and money, the two more precious aspects of any business. In this eBook, we’re going to give you a run down on all things end-to-end and just what it is you should be looking for in a video platform to suit your needs, reach your goals and help you see a great return on your investment.

In today's digital age, video has become an essential part of businesses of all sizes - that is those who are keen to keep up with the times. Video content is more engaging and effective at conveying a message compared to other forms of content. However, creating, managing, and delivering high-quality video content at scale can be challenging, which is why businesses need an end-to-end video platform.
The increase in demand for video, which can be partly attributed to the pandemic, alongside the general popularity of video use among businesses as an effective tool to reach and engage audiences has given rise to the demand for video platforms. Quickchannel enables its customers to host and manage their video content, and utilise them for various organisational functions, such as corporate communication, marketing, and training & learning.
While there are many free video hosting platforms, such as YouTube, they come with certain drawbacks and limitations that prevent businesses from fulfilling their needs and taking full advantage of their video content. Some of these drawbacks may include 3rd party advertisements, loss of content rights, brand dilution, video suggestions from competitors, security issues and privacy concerns. So, let’s take a look at why businesses need an end-to-end video platform, and why free platforms just don’t cut it.
