Given the nature of today’s business, where the processes need to be done fast and spontaneous, taking time out of your business day to travel to and from meetings is not only expensive and time consuming but it’s also unnecessary. By installing Video conferencing into your business meeting room, you have the potential to increase productivity and efficiency by reducing unproductive travel time, preventing meeting delays, creating shorter and more structured meetings and allowing for greater reach of the message you are trying to induce.
In particular small businesses especially can benefit from video conferencing by using it to reduce travel costs and enhance productivity. In fact, small companies can pay for the equipment with just one or two business trips saved.
Video conferencing also allows for an increased number of participants. It is often difficult sometimes to get the information you are trying to relay to everyone all at the same time, but with video conferencing, all individuals who need data can get the information when it is easiest for them.
In the past video was a little alien to us all and also very expensive, however in today’s market video conferencing is more affordable than ever before.
The Web and VoIP have simplified the overall conferencing process, as these technologies have shaped connectivity by reducing the sense of distance. Video conferencing is now extremely affordable and employees working with remote partners or clients from a distance can work more closely than ever before.
A room based system can be purchased and installed for as little as £25 per week and so if you save just once face to face meeting a week that will cover the travel time and cost of fuel alone.
Similarly nowadays the Internet connection can handle it better with just 768 kbps required for full HD picture quality.
