Expand Your Reach with New Technology in the Workplace
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, in 2015, 23 percent of employees reported doing some of their work remotely, up from 19 percent in 2003. A New York Times report also stated that telecommuting is fast on the rise. With so many employees working in remote environments, and executives constantly traveling, a video conferencing system is a helpful tool for companies today. In Orange County alone, businesses are finding that high-quality audio/video systems are incredibly helpful for facilitating communication with staff, partners, and other companies in the California area. Not only can you expand your reach, but also increase sales and partnership opportunities. Here are just a few tips on how to leverage your business using a video conferencing system.
Many companies are using video conferencing today to communicate from different locations – even around the world. Orchestrating a meeting on the Internet is helpful for business; even students are using video conferencing systems in digital learning environments.
By communicating online, you not only save money and company resources that would have been spent on travel, but you also save time. Further, you can place notes and other resources directly in front of you during the conference so it’s easy to refer to content, and you can even record your meetings as well. Once you have the right technology in place, meetings can be a breeze. Here are some tips for you to make that next conference go smoothly.
- Keep Everyone’s Unique Location in Mind
Every member of your team, or customer, will have a different set up and may be using varying devices. If they live in a different time zone, you have to keep the time difference in mind too. Make your meeting mobile friendly by ensuring presentations can be seen on a smartphone or tablet. So it won’t matter if that important executive is waiting in an airport or at the office, you can connect from anywhere. Our video conferencing software is mobile friendly and easy to use so it will adapt to everyone’s unique location.
- Prepare for Your Meeting
It’s crucial to be prepared for your meeting. Test the audio, video, and the Internet connection long before you start. By giving yourself enough time in advance, you can solve problems and make adjustments. Testing your workstation is very beneficial, but having a practice session with a remote coworker is even better. You can run through your presentation to make sure everything works correctly, and then get feedback or help if you need to make changes. If your audio/video isn’t clear and the Internet connection isn’t strong, you can always contact Fortech to upgrade your conference room’s components.
- Start and Finish Strong
Even when you are in a remote environment, it’s imperative to make a good impression. Arriving late and technical complications will put all the focus on making the meeting possible instead of the important topics at hand. By starting your meeting strong with the right technology by Fortech, and finishing strong with a great presentation, you’ll be setting yourself up for success.
