Video Conferencing and the mobilised workforce
The recent development of 4G and higher download quotas at an affordable price has now brought video conferencing to the forefront of remote working.
Now you don’t need to invest in expensive video cameras or meeting rooms – all you need is some software or an app and the cameras built into your laptop, tablet or even your smartphone.
This is good news as for many of us our mobile phone often serves as an extension to our office. Now when you’re working off site you no longer have to worry about missing an important meetings because with a few simple steps, you can hold a meeting wherever you are in the world.
It also means that some professionals such as architects engineers and medical experts can now receive the information they need via a video link without having to spend time travelling to and from locations which is not only time consuming but can be quite costly to clients who are paying them for their time.
In some cases more junior member of staff who can provide a videoconferencing link to a building site or remote location can show such senior staff what they need to see, saving valuable time and money.
Video conferencing does not have to be data-intensive. A low quality videoconference call will use around 270MB per hour; with 5GB of mobile data available for under £30 per month in the UK, meaning there is sufficient scope for 4G users to have numerous videoconferences each week without significantly eating into their allowance.
Video Conferencing for the mobile workforce gives workers the flexibility and freedom to choose the best communication method for them, rather than being constrained by infrastructure.
