AUDIO, VIDEO & WEB CONFERENCING (Remote Conferencing Solutions)
Many forward-thinking companies are reinventing the way they operate to adapt to today’s highly mobile, streamlined business environment. Financially-burdensome corporate travel budgets have been scrupulously scaled down, businesses are scheduling face-to-face meetings less frequently, and companies find themselves relying more and more on a rapidly growing remote workforce, leaving fewer employees ‘in the office’.
That’s why many businesses have embraced remote conferencing solutions. Now one of the most efficient and cost-effective forms of business communication, they keep collaboration going and productivity up, all while reducing unnecessary spending. Offering the ability to interact with employees, vendors or any group in real-time without having to arrange for everyone to be in the same room at the same time makes conferencing solutions the ideal way to communicate with a wider audience. Also, meetings can often be set up with very short notice and even “on the fly”.
The potential for savings on corporate travel is astounding when taking into account plane fares, rental cars, hotel rooms, meals, other reimbursable expenses, and the potential travel delays that could hamper even the best laid plans. Perhaps more poignantly, productivity is bound to go up when your employees are not wasting time travelling. Studies have also shown that employees tend to socialize less during a teleconference as compared to a face-to-face meeting. Naturally, that means your meetings are more concise and your employees are more productive.
