You’ve been fiddling with the idea of adopting video conferencing for your business but just aren’t ready to take the next step. Video conferencing is on the rise and just about every company utilizes it to some degree. But how can you be sure it fits your company’s needs? Below are 10 reasons to consider video conferencing.
1) Save Time
No longer will you have to carve out time to hunt for a conference room or drive across town to see a client. You can simply meet within the comfort of your office. A meeting can literally happen thanks to a few mouse clicks.
2) Collaborate Better
The best way to communicate is face-to-face, but video conferencing runs a close second. Facial expressions and gestures help contribute to the dynamic of a meeting and can ensure that all parties are on the same page.
3) Connect Remotely
Remote members can connect no matter where they are with team members back at the office. While you're on the road, mobile applications also allow you the freedom to meet, provided there's a reliable connection.
Video conferencing allows great flexibility to meet and un-meet; that is, changing meeting times, squeezing in last-minute meetings, or changing locations. And if you're using our Blue Jeans browser access, there's no need to worry about changing locations because all you really need is a connection and a camera.
5) Make Fast Decisions
Making important decisions with many people involved can mean a lot of back and forth emails or long-winded audio calls. When people meet eyeball to eyeball, it's easier to come to a consensus and clarify any outstanding issues.
6) Go Green
Video conferencing reduces the need for travel, and by extension your carbon footprint. Did you know a meeting that takes place by video conference uses one hundredth as much energy as one in which participants took a flight so they could sit together?
With video conferencing becoming the norm, there are various types of systems to fit any size business. No matter how much you spend, the benefits in saving time and going green, surely outweigh that.
8) It's easy
Blue Jeans was founded on the principle of making video calls as easy as audio calls. Whether you have an existing room system or would prefer our browser access option, we make it easy to connect on your terms.
9) Reduce Travel
The strain of travel can be exhausting; no one likes to sit on long flights or get stuck in an airport because of a snowstorm. Video conferencing can reduce the need to see clients in person.
10) Lower overhead
Without the added cost of travel or maintaining traditional phone systems (and paying the phone bills that come with it), you can effectively lower overhead and allocate that money towards other parts of your business.
