Technology in the workplace is no longer a luxury, it’s a necessity, and having a professional video conferencing system is no exception. These systems are being used more and more in huddle rooms, conference spaces, boardrooms, and other meeting areas. Now more than ever due to restrictions due to COVID-19, video conferencing systems are essential for businesses to keep employees connected and have the ability to collaborate with other team members, clients, vendors, and guests.
Many businesses were forced to quickly close their offices this year and make an abrupt change to remote work. Those that had video conferencing implemented already thrived, while others struggled to catch up. The foreseeable future remains uncertain regarding in-office functions, making it more important than ever to have video conferencing capabilities in your office.
In addition to making it possible to work remotely, there are other valuable reasons why your business needs a video conferencing system in place, here are the top 3 reasons why.
There are a number of reasons why business operations can be disrupted from something as simple as inclement weather to more complex like a global pandemic. Video conferencing allows you to avoid any type of business interruption. Video conferencing equals business continuity. This means that even though your CFO is stranded across the country due to a snowstorm, your office manager is home with a sick child, while the rest of your staff is onsite at your local office business can carry on as usual.
Video conferencing allows you to adapt quickly to any circumstance, and when it’s already implemented into your business operations you’ll be able to function without disruption. By making these communication and collaboration tools a part of your daily operations you’ll find that your staff will become more efficient and your business will become “disaster-proof”.
Video conferencing allows businesses to connect on a large scale. Whether it’s with employees across multiple locations, or customers in different states or even countries you have to ability to meet with them all at once. Video conferencing rooms are capable of hosting hundreds of participants making it possible to address entire departments at once, or the entire board of a potential client. The sky is the limit!
Additionally, you can take advantage of features like cloud recording and streaming both of which can increase the quality of video calls by allowing clients or employees to access the calls on demand after the meeting has occurred.
By having the ability to expand your virtual communications you will save time and run your business more efficiently. Instead of having to have multiple meetings to discuss new company policies or get multiple locations to meet at one location, you can meet with your entire organization at once without requiring anyone to leave their location.
Virtual conferencing also helps to boost team morale and peer engagement during times where employees may feel more isolated and disconnected due to circumstances related to COVID-19.
