With 60% of employees using video conferencing solutions to meet with clients and colleagues, it's becoming more important for businesses to make sure their tools are user-friendly and include the latest technologies. While some companies still depend solely on audio conferencing, there are compelling reasons to look into the latest video conferencing technologies.
Here's what your employees would like to see.
- Better insight into their needs. Do you know what type of video conferencing solutions your employees currently use? Ask around, and you may discover that your employees are using simple collaboration platforms like Google Hangouts and Skype for Business. You may also find that your employees would prefer an organization-wide video conferencing solution that puts everyone on the same page.
- A designated video conferencing room. Even with access to a video conferencing room, employees report using a mixture of audio conferencing and other less-than-ideal solutions. Furnishing a room solely for video meetings and then providing an advanced video conferencing system will lead to more productive meetings and buy-in as employees become more familiar with the system.
- Advanced features. An advanced video conferencing system should improve the meeting experience. Employees appreciate features like screen sharing, voice-only options for users without access to a computer, Microsoft Outlook meeting invite capabilities, and recording solutions. Technologies that reduce network failures during meetings are also high on the list of must-have features.
A state-of-the-art video conferencing system offers more than improved meeting productivity. By working with a professional solutions provider, you can track utilization, meeting length, and overall end-user participation.
