Video Conferencing Tips

THERE IS NO QUESTION that video conferencing is one of the greenest technologies on the market. Here are 10 tips from Solutionz Conferencing, Inc. to achieve your business goals, while simultaneously reducing your environmental impact with tele-presence and video conferencing:

  1. Telecommuting. Enabling people to be fully engaged in the workplace while working from home, increases productivity and morale of employees by reducing hours spent in traffic, and saves on operational costs.
  2. Access to Remote Experts. Connecting employees and customers to experts face to face, regardless of geographical location, saves money and carbon emissions, and increases customer satisfaction and loyalty.
  3. Global Meetings. Whether meeting with the board or your global team, everyone can now meet face to face with just a short walk down the hall, instead of a long plane flight. All this without any carbon emissions.
  4. Customer Briefing Centers. Video communication unites clients and staff in real time, without unnecessary and costly travel, to facilitate instant decision making and collaboration, reducing the negative environmental impact from travel.
  5. Work/Life Balance. Employees who are always on the road often report more stress, less productivity, and reduced job satisfaction. Video conferencing removes the need to travel, increases morale, productivity and collaboration, and allows managers to maintain in-person communication.
  6. Distance Learning. Training facilities get an added lesson in conservation when they connect via video conferencing to remote institutions to enhance learning opportunities, and save on costs. They can also easily share recorded content for future sessions.
  7. Research and Development. Designers and researchers around the globe can hold live, face to face discussions about building design, carry out modifications during video meetings, etc., to advance development timelines without increasing their carbon footprint.
  8. Team Building. Multiple offices don’t have to mean isolated teams. Video conferencing allows remote teammates to see each other as often as if they were in the same office, maybe more. It helps enhance collaboration and build camaraderie without the waste associated with travel.
  9. HR Recruiting. Initial face to face screenings of out of town candidates cut costs and carbon emissions by eliminating the need to travel for interviews.
  10. Real Time Collaboration. Firms can deal with large amounts of data and collaborate in real time from multiple locations, with the visual and multimedia capabilities of video conferencing, instead of losing productivity from rigorous travel out into the field.
