Advantages of Video Conferencing

Do you spend a lot of time travelling between offices, or visiting clients and suppliers around the country or world? If you do then you could benefit from the advantages of video conferencing. It’s not just about financial returns either – as well as the measurable advantages there are “soft” benefits too.

Some of the advantages of video conferencing

The biggest advantage of video conferencing is twofold – savings in travel expenses and time. With the costs of petrol, air fares and train travel spiralling out of control, one of the biggest  expenses companies have is travel. Though you may think investing in video conferencing equipment is beyond your budget, if it results in a reduction in travel expenses you’ll start to see an immediate return on your investment. Add to that the gain in time when you’re no longer waiting at airports or driving around the country, and you will soon see the financial advantages of video conferencing.

 Of course cutting down on travel means you also reduce your company’s carbon footprint – and this is good for the environment and good for business. At a time when we are all encouraged to think green, being able to demonstrate your green credentials through replacing travel with video conferencing will encourage people to do business with you.

Another great advantage of video conferencing is that it is instantaneous – instead of having to spend hours  travelling to meetings, you can set up a video conference in a matter of minutes, and there’s no limit to the number of conferences you can host. It definitely makes it easier to deliver projects quickly and within schedules when there’s no hanging around for meetings!

Then there are the “soft” advantages of video conferencing. If you require your staff to travel frequently that can have an impact on their quality of life, and one of the best advantages of video conferencing is that the reduction in travel can improve your staff’s work/life balance. And when your staff are happier generally they are more productive and more effective in the workplace – yet another advantage of video conferencing.

Video conferencing also leads to more collaboration – you can show products and documents in real time and discuss them together. You can also combine video conferencing with interactive white board technology for the closest thing to face to face interaction.

And of course perhaps the biggest advantage of video conferencing is that it breaks down global barriers. When you can instantly see and talk to people on the other side of the world there’s nothing to stop you trading internationally.
