Dispelling A Myth: Video Conferencing Is No Longer Optional

Dec 21, 2007
Are you up to date on your video conferencing skills? If not, you will find that soon enough you will be lagging woefully behind your competition! In a global economy that is internationally fueled and competition driven, video conferencing is a must and no longer just an optional component of a successful business that may or may not be utilized at the whim of entrepreneur who might not have allocated the funds to update the company's video conferencing technology. Rather than being installed when funds permit it, this technology is now understood to be instrumental in the generation of profit and in a company's effort of reaching and maintaining the pinnacle of its niche.

Even the smaller home based businesses understand that video conferencing will give them an edge that was heretofore unprecedented. Granted, just a few short months ago this might have translated into a web cam and applicable software for the smallest of home businesses, but with the recent drop in technology costs for high definition television and related peripherals, high quality video conferencing systems are finally, in many cases for the first time, a serious consideration for the small business market.

No longer is the small business owner content to utilize low resolution video conferencing systems and instead she or he is eager to upgrade and update; the push for bigger businesses to invest part of their communication budget into high definition video communications gadgetry is strong. In the wake of this development are the smaller home businesses whose savvy entrepreneurs are beginning to catch on to the vital importance this communications tool can play for them. In some cases profiting from refurbished high definition systems cast off by the Fortune 500 and 1000 companies, while in others biting the bullet and paying full price, the hope of each home business owner is to tap into a thus far closed off market simply with the help of communications technology.

Providers of high definition video conferencing solutions are not sitting by idly. While the sudden spike in popularity for the technology is market driven, the drop in prices coupled with an available inventory has led to many specially sponsored sales events geared toward the small business entrepreneur who thus far might not have been the primary purchaser of this equipment. Showcasing to their new customer segment that video conferencing does not necessarily have to eat up their entire communications budget, the industry is pleased to help even starter businesses get in on the action with entry level systems that can later either be upgraded or added onto.

If, as a small home business entrepreneur you are still uncertain how this technology will change the way you do business, consider the way that the competition is using it. At this point in time, video conferencing is used as a meeting tool which is cutting down on the cost of travel, a mode of remote training which will not harm productivity, and for a host of other applications which thus far were thought to be out of reach for most small businesses.
