Managed service providers work to provide you with effective IT solutions. Well so does the IT department. The difference is that the managed service providers have to come up with cost-effective and innovative solutions in order to survive in the market. This entitles the organisation hiring the managed service providers to the best technology available in communication. One such is video conferencing.
People have understood the value of communication from the ancient times. Majority of us would agree that communication is the key to relationship building and relationships in business leads to increased sales and profit. Therefore for any organization, the business depends on the kind of communication system that they have.
The Benefits of Video Conferencing can be listed as:
- The biggest Benefit is COST.
Cost for communication in a business, sometimes seem unavoidable. However, with video conferencing this expenditure can be significantly reduced. Outstation and overseas calls can be highly expensive if you indulge in frequent call, log duration calls or both. Video conferencing is cost effective as all you need is a webcam, a monitor and an internet connection. Three things and you can have a meeting among two or twenty people at different locations at a cost that is just a fraction of the conventional channels of meeting.
You save a lot of quality time when you opt for a video conference route. It eliminates the need to be physically present in the office of the client or business associate. If you had to be physically present in the offices of five different clients in different locations, it would take a lot of your time and again money in travelling. These expenses can climb further high if these people are in different countries. Instead of taking a world tour you can bring the world to your work desk. So have conversations, discuss ideas, make plans and make sure you save your time for more productive activities.
- Effective within the Organization
Organizational benefits of video conferencing can be enjoyed by those companies that have a large number of employees and who have to communicate between different departments. For example, the Human Resources department deals with everyone on the list of employees and also who are applying for a job in their company. Using video conferencing in the organization, you can transform the image of your organization and make each and every department technologically advanced and well connected with each other.
- Do not Compromise your Routine
Video conferencing allows you to keep the discussions and meeting limited to the office, or should we say to your office. In a Multinational Company, one may have to travel late nights, stay away from the comfort and peace of mind of home and meet people for meeting and formal lunch and dinners. All this can be taxing on your health and may disturb your routine. Video conferencing can be an answer to all these travelling, meeting and lunch.It would allow you to maintain your work-life balance and work with a relaxed mind. Not a disturbed and tired one.
Other than business, video conferencing has been a popular choice for social networking and has been the choice modern age communication. Therefore, it represents your organization as a tech savvy company, and that is important for your image on the digital platform.
