Video conferencing technology should be an everyday resource

Tuesday, July 16 2013

In some cases, professionals only use video conferencing technology to hold large meetings with remote participants. However, this is a faulty practice as it doesn't allow workers to capitalize on all of the benefits that the communications platform has to offer. Mark Hickey, a research analyst at Frost & Sullivan, recently noted that while the channel is primarily used to replace business travel, consistent use is much more effective for streamlining daily procedures.

"The regular use of video conferencing facilitates productivity gains through enhanced user participation, the inclusion of visual components like document and multimedia sharing and enabling specialist use cases like medical examinations," Hickey said in a statement.

Indeed, video conferencing allows contacts to efficiently complete important discussions and return to work. An employee can open his or her application, reach out to a colleague, talk about a project and then resume production, without ever leaving the desk.

Every company wants to improve productivity and give their staff members the necessary resources to handle new responsibilities. For ensuring that workers can collaborate and easily complete critical projects, video conferencing software may be the most important tool a business can integrate with its current systems.
