Video conferencing technology has come a long way in recent years and has effectively changed the way companies do business. The widespread deployment of mobile devices and remote workers have further promoted the need for video conferencing. For companies of any size and type, the benefits are substantial.
The Benefits of Video Conferencing
The advantages of a video conferencing system are as varied as the businesses who use them. For most organizations, reduced costs and improved productivity are the top benefits.
Reduced travel costs— The cost of travel includes more than just airfare; travel wastes tremendous amounts of otherwise productive time. Traveling from one location to another for training, sales presentations, and meetings waste valuable hours getting to and from locations. Video conferencing eliminates the need for extensive travel, saving companies thousands in airfare, lost working hours, and wear and tear on vehicle fleets.
More productive meetings— Video conferencing eliminates the logistics and cost surrounding the majority of meetings. Travel between sites, even those closely located, always means a loss in productivity while staff members gather. On-site meetings also require the use of a conference room and the occasional catered lunch. Video conferencing eliminates these hassles, allowing staff members to attend a meeting from any location, and with minimal disruptions to their schedule.
A smoother hiring process— Video conferencing speeds up hiring processes by enabling face-to-face interviews earlier and with greater success. The previous model of phone interviews followed by flying in for closing interviews was costly and time-consuming.
