Video conferencing is, without doubt, one of the most significant advances in enterprise technology today. Companies of all sizes are taking advantage of its benefits, and transforming the way that they do business as a result.
In our last blog post, we discussed how video conferencing technology does not need to be limited only to large companies with vast budgets. Smaller businesses can profit from the many advantages that video technology offers, by using solutions tailored to their needs.
Technology should enable your business to meet the communication needs of your employees and customers, and to pave the way for simple but value-rich changes. It’s a mistake, however, to think that a smart, unified communications system is only necessary for big companies. Effective collaboration tools should be at the forefront of every organization’s technological strategy – regardless of that organization’s size.
As organizations become increasingly global in reach, with more complex ecosystems of individuals and groups, effective knowledge sharing and engagement can be a significant factor for success. Increasingly, organizations are re-examining the business case for deploying video conferencing as a primary communications tool. No longer seen as a luxury, video conferencing is becoming a ‘must-have' for business success.
In an earlier post, we talked about the ways in which video conferencing and telepresence have benefited the healthcare industry in recent years – streamlining costs, promoting collaboration and increasing efficiency in many aspects of the field.
One of the most exciting uses for video conferencing within the field of healthcare is its use in remote diagnostics – taking advantage of the ever-increasing quality of video capabilities to help medical professionals examine patients in other locations as if they were face-to-face.
