Learn Why Video Conferencing Could Be Successful For You

May 4, 2008
Depending on the tools that you use, video conferencing allows large numbers (and small numbers too) of people to communicate at the same time and share information, ideas and generally collaborate, irrespective of their location. It is possible to share computer desktops and view whiteboards, much as you would in a normal business conference. This without the cost of hosting one in the real world of course!

Here are some more advantages to video conferencing.

* The costs involved in video conferencing are a lot less than for conventional meetings. For a normal business meeting, gathering a sales forces together for example, can cost an awful lot of money in travelling expenses. This is not just the cost of travelling to and from the location (which you would have to hire in all probability) either. People travelling any distance would require accommodation, refreshments and meals. Not withstanding the actual costs in terms of money, the work time lost travelling is also considerable, time that would not be wasted with a video conference.

* In this day and age, people keep most of their work information on the computer. Obviously, if you are at home in a video conference, all of this information is readily to hand. There is no danger of leaving an important document at and airport if you never have to leave home for the meeting.

* Another major advantage of a video conference is the ease with which people outside of an organisation can join in. Say for example you are involved in building projects, the chances are that a different architect would be used for each project. If your meeting requires the presence of a non employed expert, it is far easier to organise if you are running a video conference rather than a meeting in the flesh.

* When you are running video conferences, it is easy to record important sections of the meetings. These types of videos could prove invaluable for training of staff and new people.

* Being able to see everyone on video is almost as good as seeing them face to face. It is far less impersonal than a simple telephone call for example. Having this facility available can speed up some of your business processes as well, and, as they say, time is money!

If you compare the experience of a telephone conference to a video conference, then video conferencing wins hands down again. Seeing your fellow delegates on video is a major advantage to the experience gained of shared call meetings.

As technology improves, then prices come down. You get better quality video conference for less money. Now is definitely the time to consider moving to video conferencing for your meetings.
