Video conferencing has changed the way the world communicates. It has become an imperative for many businesses in multiple domains, including governmental agencies, healthcare organisations, and educational institutions.
Over the past 30 years, video conferencing has evolved tremendously and has completely changed the way that the world communicates. Not only is video conferencing used in conference rooms and boardrooms, but video conferencing solutions have recently extended to mobile devices and desktop computers. This has made face-to-face collaboration a reality for any knowledge worker from the executive to the telecommuter.
Video conferencing can transform your business in many ways. In this white paper, Lifesize discusses the 5 most important ways in which video conferencing will transform your business. So, here goes…
1) Reduction in travel expenses: As increasing numbers of businesses go global, the need to interact with international constituents is an imperative. Video conferencing eliminates the need for travel to different locations, by bringing the world closer together and allowing employees and customers in different time zones to communicate face-to-face with anyone, anywhere, at anytime!
2) Increased productivity and efficiency: Video conferencing has completely changed the way people do business. Instead of relying on endless email chains, video conferencing allows colleagues to interact in real-time, as if they were in the same room. This results in faster decision making, the ability to bring products to market more quickly, and the opportunity to be more competitive.
3) Improved management communications: Video conferencing is a way to improve management communications. Customers now have access to more people within an organisation, than simply the salesperson responsible for the account. This results in meaningful dialogue and a more lifelike interaction, such as a meeting using high definition video conferencing.
4) Enhanced business opportunities: With video conferencing, you have more time to foster your working relationships and build new business opportunities. Knowledge workers can meet in different time zones throughout the day, giving them the flexibility of working from wherever, whenever. You can also use a streaming and recording solution, thereby allowing businesses to archive and retrieve important information.
5) Improved work/life balance: Excessive business travel can burn out employees and put a strain on family relationships. A long daily commute can result in stress even before the work day has begun. By implementing video conferencing in your organisation, you can ensure that your employees join meetings on-time and without the added stress of a poor work/life balance.
So, now you know that video conferencing is a technology that has been embraced by every industry. Also, many knowledge workers now view the technology not as a fringe benefit, but as an important daily business tool. The benefits of video conferencing extend far beyond the bottom line, contributing to higher productivity, increased morale, and greater business opportunities.
