What is video conferencing?

Video conferencing is a technology that allows users in different locations to hold face-to-face meetings, without having to move to a single location together.

It presents countless benefits for businesses.

In this blog post, we dive deeper into some tangible benefits of this software and its potential uses for your business.

Benefits of Video Calls

1. Improve Communication

Research has shown that humans process visual information more quickly and accurately than text and audio.

Therefore, your attendees will retain info better than they would if you held the meeting via audio.

2. Reduce Travel Costs

Less money will be spent on business meetings, staff training and interview meetings. Yearly, this can save your business a lot of money and improve your profit margin.

You will also reduce your energy usage. You don’t need to drive or fly to different destinations for meetings.

3. Gain an advantage over your competitors

Impress your contacts with enterprise-level conferences. With a good quality set-up, the professional image that you give out to your clients, suppliers and investors will reflect the strengths of your business.

4. It improves productivity

A real-time video call is more efficient than an ordinary phone call under most circumstances. Charts, graphs, spreadsheets and more can be displayed for all parties to see and discuss.

Visuals will get the point across far more effectively than mere descriptions over the phone.

5. Integrate with multiple devices

A key advantage of video calling is that it gives you more choices. Even if you are outside for some reason, you can still easily start or join a video conference for an important matter on your laptop, smartphone, iPad or other mobile devices.

Sounds great… How can I get it set-up?

Choose which way you would simply like to set up your system.
