HAUPPAUGE, N.Y., Jan. 22, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- As part of their mission to assist the business community toward maximizing productivity, AV Managed Services, IVCi, discusses 4 video conferencing benefits that can create inspiration in the workplace.
Video conferencing technology is more accessible than ever before, and there's no excuse for companies to pass on the amazing benefits that a quality AV setup has to offer. From increased productivity to greater flexibility that empowers the workforce, companies have a lot to gain and little to lose from an investment in video conferencing equipment.
Discussed below are 4 of the reasons video conferencing can be a valuable tool for creating inspiration in an office environment.
Increased Productivity. Video conferencing is a valuable tool for making day-to-day business more efficient. Rather than forcing employees to spend valuable time traveling, all it takes to touch base with contacts around the world is a simple audio-visual setup. The advent of smart speakers have made this sort of capability accessible to even the smallest companies, with video calling and a smart assistant built into one convenient device. Efficient business requires efficient communication, and for projects that require an actual conversation, there's nothing better than a quality video conference call to iron out the details and spark the inspiration that moves the business forward.
Humanize Conversation. While email, instant messaging, and even traditional phone calls all have their uses, video conferencing helps keep the human element in business communications. Most businesses are built on collaboration and negotiation, and being able to look a client or coworker in the eye is a benefit that often goes understated. Video conferencing humanizes a conversation and provides the same experience as talking face-to-face without the time or expense of traveling. These exchanges of ideas can inspire the type of creative problem solving that gives the company a much-needed advantage.
An Increasingly Mobile Workforce. A quality cloud video conferencing platform allows employees to connect from nearly any device, which allows employees to communicate while out in the field. This is a valuable utility, allowing employees who are traveling or out on sales calls to touch base with the team without having to head back to the physical office. A modern business can operate beyond the bounds of a physical building, and mobile conferencing capabilities are a large part of making that dream a reality.
Easier Telecommuting. Businesses that give their employees more flexibility can take advantage of a wider pool of talent while still maintaining peak productivity. However, telecommuting comes with its own set of challenges and can lead to issues if employees aren't equipped with the tools to stay connected with the main office. Video conferencing allows employees who are working remotely to remain a part of the team and integrate with on-campus personnel rather than working in isolation.
The best businesses have teams that work together seamlessly to accomplish a common goal, and a cloud platform that keeps all employees on the same page can move a company closer to that goal. Plus, with every employee working where they are most comfortable, it's easier for each member of the team to more effectively add their creative input.
