Every business needs to hold meetings at some point whether it’s in house between employers and employees or discussing business with customers and potential clients.
Business meeting rooms are a place where people come together, where deals are struck, relationships are forged and ideas are generated. A meeting means business and often the more of them you can have can mean the more productive your company can be.
How many times have to sat talking on the phone to someone trying to explain important details about the business you’re doing or want to do but felt as though the person on the other end of the line was missing your point? You know if you could get them in your meeting room you could sell it better but scheduling a meeting with them means travelling hundreds of miles and is not only time consuming but also costly. Sound familiar?
This is a problem for many businesses especially SME’s who often cannot afford the time or the costs involved to go travelling half way around the world no matter how much they believe they have the right product or service for a potential client.
Video Conferencing eliminates all of these problems and allows you to get the right message across without ever having to leave your meeting room.
Video conferencing restores many visual cues necessary in long distance communication. Non-verbal communication constitutes about two-thirds of the communication between people. For example, eye contact enables us to ‘get’ a message from a speaker that voice communication alone may not successfully convey, creating essential social bonds and shared understandings. Audio conferencing and e-mail lose these non-verbal cues.
But visual communication is much more than just saving time and money. Application of video as a tool is a decision that ensures the future success of your business by increasing availability, flexibility and productivity through easier communication and sharing of knowledge.
Video conferencing of today delivers excellent, reliable audio and video quality to anybody anywhere in the world so you never have to worry about losing connection and more importantly better decisions can be made more quickly, true collaboration at a distance is possible and those frustrating phone calls with clients can become a thing of the past.
