It is true that people communicate so much more effectively in person, but who really has the time to always be on the road attending meetings and conferences? Video Conferencing is one of the most practical and beneficial network communication tools today. This simple solution can save your business time and money by cutting out travel cost and lost productivity for staff members and management alike.
If you have remote workers, sales staff or customers who regularly travel for business, video conferencing is a great way to cut costs and stay connected. Meetings can take place without ever leaving the office and you can connect with anyone worldwide with very little notice.
No longer limited to just room-based units, video conferencing has developed immensely giving you the ability to connect to a conference via portable devices or through the “clouds” virtual meeting rooms, and with meeting rooms available 24/7 it doesn’t matter if you need to call a meeting in Aberdeen or Antarctica, a few clicks and you can have real communication and all from simply turning on your webcam. Best yet you can even swap between devices seamlessly; computer, smartphone or tablet, the choice is yours.
Video conferencing can be used in a host of different environments which is one of the reasons the technology is so popular, with some employers recognising significant benefits that come by allowing employees, in particular those with children, to work to their own schedules, with some even stating an increase in the productivity of their business.
Whether it’s brainstorming with head office, documenting important sessions to use in your training sessions or interviewing potential candidates, video conferencing gives you the flexibility you need whilst delivering cost savings, increased productivity and even protects the environment by reducing your carbon footprint.
