In today’s globalized business environment, it has become very much essential for every business to stay connected with its employees and clients. Right from conducting business meetings to connecting with the clients, business communication systems play a vital role in ensuring the success for an organization.
A live video conference is much more effective than a phone call in many different situations. For example, you may need to visually demo a new product with your international sales team or troubleshoot an issue with a client which requires data sharing. Literally seeing what you are discussing is far more effective and meaningful than trying to describe it verbally with an audio conference.
First we have to understand what video conferencing is: - Videoconferencing is an interactive tool that incorporates audio, video, computing, and communications technologies to allow people in different locations to electronically collaborate face-to-face, in real time, and share all types of information including data, documents, sound and picture. In essence videoconferencing removes the barrier of distance that separates us.
Now we learn the Benefits of Video Conferencing:-
Reduced Travel Costs: - Most businesses and organizations will have to travel to meet business partners, attend board meetings and attend client meetings. Video conferencing delivers face to face communication without having to leave your work space allowing businesses to reduce travel costs.
Increased Productivity: - Most conferencing systems now have features that allow users to share and edit documents. The ability to easily share and collaborate within various formats has added another dynamic to video communications previously not possible. Face to face communication and being able to share data at the same time increases productivity.
Improves Communication:- During a video conference you can see the facial expressions and body language of conference participants, leading to faster and more effective collaboration. These are both important aspects of communication that are lost with a basic telephone call.
Keeps Employees Connected:- Video communication helps retain valuable employees who have to relocate or need to work from home a few days. This definitely saves on costly retraining or recruiting fees associated with hiring a new employee.
Saves time:- Save time by instantly connecting with video conferencing users. The hours saved by eliminating journey time makes video conferencing a cost effective solution.
Uses of Video Conferencing
Video conferencing can be used in a host of different environments, which is one of the reasons the technology is so popular. General uses for video conferencing include business meetings, educational training or instruction and collaboration among health officials or other representatives.
