Video Conferencing: Cost-Effective Communication Tools for Business

video conferencingAlmost 44 million workers across the globe work from home and global offices in the corporate world can be thousands of miles apart. Although there is no cost effective way to physically get employees into a conference room to interact face to face, technology does allow businesses to connect virtually from remote locations. Over the past decade corporations have found it easier and more cost efficient to use video conferencing technology with employees who are distant rather than fly them into the office for sales, training, and executive meetings.

Teleconferencing, or real-time exchange of information between those who are not in the same area is rapidly becoming a huge industry. Through teleconferencing, meetings, sales, employee training demonstrations and workshops can be provided at the same time via phone, online and through the use of video.

Types of Remote Conferencing

  • Three-way calling is available as a service from the telephone company. You can also have groups of people discussing business by means of speakerphones. These are the simplest methods of teleconferencing, but three-way calling may not be the most effective way to communicate.
  • Conference calls allow groups of remote employees to communicate through speaker phone. Conferences calls are designed to discuss business with large numbers of listeners. Conference calls provide communication, brainstorming sessions and planning and division of assignments. Using bridge technology or contracting with a service provider for conference call hosting there can be attendee polling, in-call moderators and call recording options. A PIN number is used to access the call and control confidentiality.
  • Video conferencing solutions provide the opportunity for participants to view the trainer or facilitator, interact and view charts, notes, PowerPoint presentations and the other participants. Video conferencing solutions may not require leased phone lines, technical intervention and can be tied into your existing IT network. Software is available that gives remote users the opportunity to link into the office system with a minimum amount of trouble.

Reasons to use Video Conferencing Technology

One of the biggest advantages to video conferencing via your existing IT network is the reduced costs of travel, renting space and providing food. Load video conferencing software-based connectivity equipment onto the necessary computers and you effectively create a virtual face to face meeting at a fraction of the cost.

Physical meetings are becoming events of the past. Meet with those on a team without leaving your office, schedule meetings any time of the day, and invite only those participants who are essential to the conference.

If you are looking for new employees, use your video conferencing techniques to hold interviews with potential employees anywhere in the world. Human resources love video conferencing to avoid the costs and inconvenience of screening interviewees. One nice feature for human resources is the option of having other employees as a part of the interview process.
