We are so excited to announce that Coconut teams up with SolidHealth.

We had the chance to interview Eric Cavazos, Founder of SolidHealth Software Inc.

Eric, why did you decide to move your video encoding to the Cloud?

Solid Health is already cloud-based, so this was an easy decision.

Our goal is to help coaches and clients fully communicate in regards to meal and workout planning, and sharing media is an important part of that. Videos provide an excellent visual aid for clarifying certains exercises or meals. Enabling clients and coaches to upload and share videos quickly and easily makes a real difference to the effectiveness of training with Solid Health. Since we have thousands of users on the platform, their videos come in many different formats. To make our product work for everyone, it’s important that we can allow variable video formats for uploading and sharing. This improves the overall user experience.

Why did you choose Coconut?

There are several reasons why we chose Coconut for video encoding. The ease of integration was a primary reason, since they supplied several quick and easy ways to begin implementation. This made it a great option for our development team, as well as a good option for enhancing Solid Health’s user experience. The simple pricing structure was a nice benefit as well, and set it apart from other options.

How fast and handy was your integration with Coconut?

The API integration process was very easy on our end. One feature we particularly like is the the Webhooks option which notifies our system when videos are done converting.
