Video conferencing for business

There are many reasons why it’s beneficial to use video conferencing for business – and it’s not just large businesses that can benefit either. Many smaller businesses wrongly believe that video conferencing isn’t relevant for them but there are so many video conferencing solutions available now that video conferencing for business is suitable for everyone.

If you’re interested in using video conferencing for business you need to be aware of the options available. At the very bottom of the scale there are free online services like Skype and Google+ Hangouts. While these are ok for chatting to family and friends or for the occasional professional chat, there are many reasons why they do not provide acceptable video conferencing for business.

At the top of the range you can invest in dedicated video conferencing systems and this is perhaps the best solution if you intend to use video conferencing for business regularly, as you’ll soon see a return on your investment.

There are also hosted services that let you rent access to video conferencing on a monthly basis. These have a smaller initial outlay than full systems and are especially suitable for SMEs or companies that use videoconferencing only occasionally. There are also solutions that let you deploy video conferencing to hundreds of people quickly and inexpensively without the need for expensive equipment.

Why should you use video conferencing for business?

There are many benefits to be gained by using video conferencing for business. For example, being able to conduct meetings virtually means you spend less time travelling, giving you more time to get on with things. Cutting back on your travel also cuts your expenses and your carbon footprint, which is good for your finances and the environment. And by reducing the amount of time your staff have to travel to meetings gives them a better work/life balance, increases morale and leads to more productivity.

Another benefit of using video conferencing for business is that it improves communication between you, your clients and your suppliers. It’s especially useful if you are involved in manufacturing or research and development, for example, as you can monitor the manufacturing process every step of the way, wherever it is happening, and make decisions quickly.
