Video conferencing is an easily accessible technology that can provide your business with new solutions, but did you also know that it can help give your company finances a boost?
Face-to-face meetings via HD video can be very effective in building relationships for your business, and it also means you don't have to spend time and money on travel, whether it's just a quick drive down the road or a client on the other side of the world; every time you hold a meeting with video conferencing, you're saving money long-term. A softphone app on your smartphone is all you need to get in close touch easily and securely with customers, clients and fellow employees.
Many businesses already use video conferencing to connect their employees with customers and clients, giving a personal touch that only a face-to-face meeting can offer. For example, banks use video to connect their customers to tellers and specialist client advisers when required.
Video conferencing can be used at the highest level too- say you want to close out a deal, instead of travelling big distances for a 20 minute meeting and a handshake, using video conferencing can get the deal done whilst you're in the comfort of your office. You can still talk to them and react to their body language, just like they were in the room with you.
If managers are quick to promote adoption of video conferencing by employees, they could gain improvement in efficiency and productivity and all that comes with more collaboration – ideas and information get to where they are needed faster if employees get more face time. No matter what industry you operate in, whether it's logistics, retail or construction, everyone can benefit from HD video conferencing. Whether it's just a quick check on if everything is going to plan, or if its an important meeting to close out that 7-figure deal. Managers can track who is using video effectively, how they are doing it, and then propose the meeting methods to others.
