How businesses save money with Videoconferencing

Allowing staff to work remotely allows for more flexibility in telecommuters’ lives, connecting to the office remotely enables employees to work without common office distractions and generally makes them happier and more efficient. This is where the power of video conferencing comes in, as it allows all workers to have real-time, face-to-face interactions with your colleagues.  It allows people to feel part of the team with out having to waste their time sitting in traffic…

If you’re company is thinking about making the jump from commuting to videoconferencing below are some main reasons we’d advise doing it.

Videoconferencing gives you the ability to judge someone’s reactions by seeing their body language

Non-verbal communication is as important as what your co-workers are saying. With videoconferencing you’ll be able to see if the person you’re talking with is excited by, or put off by the discussion,.  This is something you can’t really gauge from traditional phone conferencing.

Videoconferencing Improves inter-state office relationships

It’s important being able to see your business partners and colleagues, ‘getting face time’ helps people get to know each other better.  Videoconferencing lets you get to know people on a more personal level than with a phone call. Most people tend to show more of their personality when they can see each other when speaking. People tend to feel closer to those they see on a regular basis. So if you’re working in a remote location or satellite office, videoconferencing is a way to make yourself seen and stay connected, which will result in an improved relationship with your colleagues.

Videoconferencing Saves Personal time

By using  video conferencing software you can avoid travelling long distances in order to attend meetings, you can use your home PC, mobile phone or tablet to connect. This means that you can save time, and also increase your productivity as you can work when you would otherwise be travelling. This will allow for increased value from remote workers, which could lead to better performance reviews and salary raises.

Videoconferencing Saves your bottom line

If your office has a number of remote workers who all need to meet on a regular basis to discuss projects, videoconferencing can help your company save money. Using video will mean the company will not need to pay for meeting rooms, transportation or accommodation. Videoconferencing lets you and your colleagues get face time, but from the comfort of your on home or anywhere else you’d like to work. As a remote worker, this represents the ultimate freedom – being able to work from wherever, whenever.

Videoconferencing enables you to do business, any time, anywhere

Need to meet with someone on a completely different time zone? Need to have an interview with a client in a different country? Does your firm need to provide client testimonial to a judge on the other side of the state or country?

Real Time Video Collaboration: Now you see what I see.

Video Conferencing and document sharingVideo conferencing is not just about seeing the person face-to-face, it is really about sharing information. Both LifeSize and the lower cost AVer conferencing systems have the ability to share content in real time.  Applications and documents can be shared, allowing complex information to be communicated quickly and efficiently. We have all been on standard teleconference calls where we try to describe an error in a formula within a spreadsheet, or try to describe the line of a document each part is looking at, either hard-copy or in an email… at times it becomes difficult, if not impossible to know if the person on the other end of the call is truly seeing, or more importantly understanding what you are saying. Collaborating with video conferencing in real-time leads to more effective communications and an increase in staff productivity, the quicker everyone is on the same page, the faster things get done.

Change your business and customer expectations with Video Conferencing

The impact of Video Conferencing on Customer Support is a positive.

Video saturation is everywhere, from video conference rooms with multi-bridging capabilities, to desktops and smartphones with video conferencing software. Every generation of video users is more exposed to and more comfortable with video than the previous one, face-to-face with video conferencing is an increasingly integral part daily life.

The video transition is presenting great low cost opportunities for businesses to interact with customers, partners and employees in ways not possible only a few years ago. Now companies are able to give the one-on-one face time that clients and customers deserve, with out having the expense of flying client managers across the country so often.

However, finding the right video conferencing solution  presents challenges for the people who design solutions and the IT organisations that implement and support them. They will need to assess and define their needs, then address an array of technological and policy considerations in delivering video solutions to both customers and employees. What video conferencing hardware or software technologies should be used behind the scenes? What quality of service will be guaranteed for all parties involved? What video will be transmitted in high definition(HD)? How much bandwidth will be required to accommodate a large conference with many people in it, and does your company have a data limit? What will it take to connect two rooms talking to each other in addition to the people connecting to those rooms via their tablets and smartphones from around Australia?

Answering these video conferencing questions upfront will affect the operational and financial impacts of selected video solutions.  Not all systems are the same, for expert advice of what conferencing system is best for your business, please call us on 1300 369 829, or visit Video Conferencing Australia for the best price on conferencing equipment in Oz.
