Video Conferencing: Is It Time to Buy In?
“Video conferencing impacts the organization in a positive manner, especially for companies with multiple locations. Video conferencing allows for much more effective meetings and minimizes interruptions that can occur on standard conference calls.” Says Georgia Dobbelaere. “Additionally, travel costs can be significantly reduced because face-to-face meetings and demos can occur.”
Video conferencing isn’t only beneficial to sales teams however, in fact, just about any team or department can greatly benefit from the perks of video conferencing. In the case of our organization, BOS, our design team can back and forth with each other and collaborate between our office in Chicago and our HQ at a moment’s notice using a technology called Highfive Video Conferencing.
Highfive allows our team members to seamlessly collaborate with one another without the need of installing any software, unlike other technologies within the video conferencing space. With the click of a button, our team can instantly start a video or even audio call with whomever they want. Our Digital Workspace division, Workspace Digital, has proven experience with implementing this solution for countless organizations.
“Video conferencing can assist in visual communication, especially when working with renderings, plans, and final presentations. My team can jump on a quick call, share their screen, and discuss detailed aspects of any current projects while saving time of unnecessary back-and-forth emails.”
As one can see, now is the time more than ever to start implementing video conferencing within the workplace. Lack of productivity and collaboration can often kill an office’s atmosphere, so getting with the times is not only beneficial to the organization at hand, but to the employee’s as well.
