Increased Productivity Through Collaboration
We all know that a picture is worth a thousand words, and crystal clear HD videoconferencing from NT&T is the perfect example of how true that statement is. A live video conference is much more effective than a phone call in many different situations.
Reduced Travel Costs
The ability to be in several places at once without leaving your office is the next frontier and driving business productivity. Though face-to-face interactions with your customers, partners and colleagues will never be replaced, the huge leaps in quality, availability, and ease-of-use make videoconferencing the closest thing to being there. When you calculate the number of trips taken annually and determine the associated costs (transportation to and from the airport, the cost of plane tickets, meals, time lost in travel, etc.) it is clear why videoconferencing is such an attractive alternative. Businesses often see that the cost of travel for just one employee can far outweigh the expense of a video conference system that can be used by the entire company.
In today’s market, it’s not unusual to have satellite offices across the region, across the country, or even the globe. Most of these offices will communicate with phone calls, email, or instant messages. The lack of face-to-face communication can cause misunderstandings within your teams, and worse, can result in lost or nonexistent communication. When video is implemented, participants are more likely to stay alert and focused on what is being discussed. As a result, projects are completed faster, productivity increases, and participants feel more in synch with each other and the message you want to convey.
Build Trust & Better Relationships
During a video conference you can see the facial expressions and body language of conference participants, leading to faster and more effective collaboration. These are both important aspects of communication that are lost with a basic telephone call. Allowing a CEO to hold a company-wide meeting in real time with offices across the globe makes employees feel closer to the home office
Video conferencing is an obvious “green” technology, allowing organizations to mitigate energy use by dramatically reducing the need to travel. By communicating over video, organizations can also substantially reduce their carbon footprint and help ensure a basis for regulatory compliance. With tools that provide a powerful way to enable conferences and other video content to be streamed live or on demand around the world, employees, customers, partners, and students can use video to communicate, engage and interact with others across distance at any time, from wherever they are.
