Video conferencing whereby you use your computer to provide a video link between two or more people can prove to be a valuable tool for many businesses.
When videoconferencing first came on to the market a number of years ago the choice of products was not only limited but also expensive and people were dubious about the benefits it provided with many seeing it as an unnecessary cost for their business.
However as technology has progressed it has meant that more choices of products are now readily available and with cloud technology expanding rapidly, there are now even more ways that videoconferencing can work for businesses that don’t need to cost the earth.
Benefits of Business Class Videoconferencing
There are many advantages of using videoconferencing in the workplace but perhaps the biggest benefit to a lot of businesses that have meetings with clients and employees on a regular basis is that meetings can take place without ever having to leave the office.
Because of this, it means that the time it would have taken to travel to and from meetings is eliminated therefore giving you much more time to carry on with the tasks at hand. It also means that there are no costs involved which is a great advantage, especially for smaller businesses that are always looking at ways to reduce outgoings.
Meetings can be called instantly with very little notice and from anywhere in the world and if there are important discussions that need to be made and people are physically unable to get into the office, they can still go ahead as long as they have a device to run the application from.
Businesses can share presentations, data and media in an instant.
How does videoconferencing work?
Business Class Videoconferencing is built on standards-based technology that allows for high-quality, secure video calls. Although there are many free videoconferencing services available these are of very poor quality and will give almost no service or performance guarantees so the availability and quality of video calls, as well as audio quality, will be unreliable.
Businesses that opt for videoconferencing can have the option of having a videoconferencing room-based system or a cloud-based solution. With room-based solutions you purchase the technology to make video conferencing possible, your system hosts the room in which you invite others to meet with you.
Businesses that choose the ‘Cloud’ are connected using room video systems and mobile apps that are managed from the ‘Cloud’, which basically means in this scenario you are renting a room online to which you can arrange to meet others, this way you don’t need the hardware to make the meeting possible so you have no setup costs but a monthly recurring charge for the facility.
It’s clear that using Business Class Videoconferencing in the office really can hold advantages for a business not only with the quality and service the product delivers but also it can save businesses a lot of time and money.
Why not opt for a cloud-based room and trial video conferencing within your business at a low cost to see how much time you could save?
