Video is becoming ubiquitous in our personal communications – globally connecting individuals in social media communities for enriched, real time communications. So why have businesses not widely deployed this affordable and easy to use collaboration tool?
In the past, video was dismissed as a costly and complex luxury that drained your network and IT resources, while offering limited return on investment. But with substantial reductions in cost and easier deployment within your network, businesses are starting to incorporate this now highly collaborative, real time tool into their communications strategy.
Connect Dispersed Workforces, Partners and Clients
Employees in the typical organization are becoming increasingly mobile. IDC1 has assessed that over 68% of the US workforce and 47% of Western Europe workforce is mobile and these percentages are expected to grow.
Specific projects may require certain workers to spend extended periods of time at customer locations or at alternative workplace locations. Video provides business continuity and the ability to stay connected with your customers, partners and staff within the virtual enterprise – from anywhere at any time.
Meet Business Imperatives Quickly and Effectively
Studies show that visual communications are twice as effective as verbal communications for learning and understanding. What if your team had weekly video conference calls where they could see each other, present updates using multiple-media formats, and work on documents cooperatively, all using video? With video you can bring new resources on board from branch or global locations easily with live or on-demand training. Delivering corporate communications and synchronizing teams becomes more interactive and compelling for stakeholders, with the opportunity to interact with company leadership live and ask questions via audio or with associated web tools. Video has been proven to shorten an 11 month project by 1 month2 - saving time and budget.
