Have you noticed that employees sometimes spend more time travelling to and from a meeting than they do in the actual meeting itself? That’s a shame, because they could have accomplished a lot of work during that time they wasted on travelling. Have you ever thought about video conferencing? It not only saves you a lot of time, it also delivers significant savings in travel expenses.
To many organisations videoconferences offer an excellent opportunity to hold meetings at a distance and to collaborate with team members, partners or clients. For a conference involving video you no longer need to leave the door or be present at a set location: via your laptop or tablet you can participate from any desired location with an internet connection. A meeting at a distance is most effective when both image and sound are high quality.

In this increasingly technological world we have seen vast changes in the way that we communicate and do business over the course of the past decade. Teleconferencing, videoconferencing, webinars, and other long distance communications advancements have made working and meeting with far away colleagues and clientele possible and very cost-effective.

Video conferencing is quickly becoming a core component of the 21st century’s workplace experience, leaving IT departments with a growing challenge: video, which historically was a convenience and not a mission-critical technology, is not a core competency for IT.
For many years, traveling was the only means that could enable businesses to have face-to-face interactions with clients. Though these meetings were necessary to leverage new opportunities, they brought about many challenges for the business. Improvements in technology led to the introduction of video communications, as a solution to some of these challenges. This technology has improved with time, in terms of ease of use, availability, quality, and sharing capabilities.
