Video is the future.
It is overtaking other forms of communication, not only within the corporate context, but also amongst people during their everyday life. Smartphones, tablets and laptops allow video meetings from any point of the globe and there are plenty of (great) solutions available for all needs.
Of course, mobility is a plus, but in a world where globalization is a fact, meaning businesses are conducted between China, Europe and the USA simultaneously, companies have to find a way to lower their costs. Imagine meetings in Hong Kong, London, New York and Rio de Janeiro in only one week. It is unsustainable for any budget and for the patience and physical capacity of any human being.
That is why companies are embracing video conferencing. But if you are not yet seduced, we give you 5 good reasons to start thinking about it.
1. The best deals are made face to face
The great quality of the video equipments and devices commercially available today can make remote meetings very similar to face to face meetings. Any collaborator may sit at a video conference room with colleagues, partners or clients from anywhere in the world without even leaving their companies. It is more comfortable, safer and faster – and represents huge savings in your company’s budget at the end of the month.
2. Turn your teams into super teams
Video is an excellent alternative to emails, phone calls or any kind of written messages. Through video conference, scattered teams can meet as if they were together in the same room and make things happen in real time. Video conferencing improves the workflow of remote co-workers – they become more productive, information losses are avoided and projects are implemented more quickly. Besides, recent studies indicate that workers feel closer to their remote colleagues when they use video conferencing.
3. Share your message with more people at the same time
In only one video meeting you can gather an unlimited number of people. You can have 200 participants attending from one single video endpoint. It is indeed a great privilege to talk to the largest possible audience, avoiding information losses and the annoying tales about what was said – or not – during the meeting.
4. Direct your most valuable resources to what matters the most
Let’s face it. If your company has business with companies from other countries or even continents, meeting with partners or clients may turn into a headache. Travel is expensive and exhausting. Video conferencing replaces unnecessary travel, time wasted and stress. In minutes you can meet anyone you need with ease and join a group of people at a fraction of the cost of what you would spend with only one travelling person. Spare your employees and save your budget to invest in your product or service. Let technology do the rest. Afterall, it was created to help you!
5. Be always one step ahead
The business world is fast paced. No one wants to fall behind. So why wait to check the status of a project? Or close an important deal? Video allows you to closely monitor the evolution of your business, giving you the competitive advantage over your competitors.
Give video conferencing a try and do the math – it’s not rocket science.
