Businesses communicate and save with applications

Wednesday, August 22 2012

The prominence of mobile devices in the workplace is growing all the time thanks to bring-your-own-device (BYOD) and other integration initiatives established in the corporate sphere. The motive is to simply cut back on technology costs while boosting efficiency, but these tools are ripe for use as collaborative tools when the right applications are implemented.

USA Today wrote that web conferencing is seeing an insurgence within the mobile community. These devices are already outfitted with video and audio functions, allowing them to connect more easily with computers that have the same tools attached to them. This considerably increases the reach of audio and video conferencing tools, making staff more accessible and easier to work with.

One of the biggest parts of collaboration is the impression a person makes on another, and whether employees are working with others in the company or trying to set an image for an outside client, these tools can achieve the best end. Tech News World stated that small- and medium-sized businesses can even benefit from these utilities, as they are affordable and versatile enough to connect SMBs to other organizations around the world, saving time and money.
