Life’s unpredictable and there’s nothing we can do to escape it. But we can certainly do our best to prepare for the unknown.
When it comes to face-to-face business meetings, there are so many factors and variables that could present an obstacle. Is the conference room available? A double booking, you say? Of course. Are all participants able to make it? Oh no, David just called in sick… I guess we need to reschedule, again.
Collaborative conferencing, in particular video and content, is probably one of the greatest blessings in the modern business architecture that solves all these issues in a single digital swoop.
Collaborative conferencing eliminates the barriers of distance, health risks, administrative time wasting and travel costs. Its instantly accessible nature allows people to organise meetings on the fly. And, since you’re already stationed at your workspace, it can be seamlessly integrated into your workflow, ensuring that you don’t miss a beat.
It’s a marvellous invention that can drastically optimise your business operations and give you a distinct advantage over your competitors. Let’s take a deeper look…
Optimising the Collaborative Conference Experience
While these online conferencing apps provide us with great opportunities to connect, the quality of your equipment is just as vital an aspect to consider.
There’s no point in pursuing collaborative conferencing if you’re going to use a slow dialup modem with cheap generic monitors and low-quality audio. In the end, it will hurt your business productivity rather than enhance it. If collaborative conferencing with video is to be a strong alternative to face-to-face meetings, then your setup needs to provide a seamless and hassle-free experience to all parties involved. Meeting facilities for larger in person audiences must also be catered for.
