Video conferencing is still up and coming and not quite everyone is using it. But why not? With the introduction of cloud subscription services the cost of video conferencing has gone down dramatically, making it a cost-effective solution for all businesses. There are a ton of great benefits that not everyone is fully aware of.
5. Cost Savings
Think about how much your company spends on travel costs each year. How many employees do you have that work on the go, traveling, making sales, connecting with your customers? Now imagine how much you could save if you could just have them connect via video.
You can still get that face-to-face interaction with your coworkers with video conferencing in meetings. It brings those facial expressions to life and makes it easier to collaborate with a team of people.
3. Time Savings
Instead of postponing meeting after meeting due to peoples’ schedules, travel delays, conference room mix ups, you could just have the meeting with a few quick clicks.
Along with travel convenience, video conferencing lets you conference in other people just like a phone call. Need to get that other key team member on the line? No problem.
A study published by the National Communication Association found, “Employees who telecommute the majority of the work week are more satisfied with their jobs compared to those working mostly in the office because working remotely alleviates more stress than it creates.” Less time spent on the road means more time spent doing work. When you have happy employees, you have productive employees.
