The Changing Face of Video Conferencing: Why Mobile Matters
The expenses incurred by companies as related to sending employees on business trips to meet with satellite offices, international clients, and sales calls are constantly increasing. As the overall costs associated with travel continue to rise, businesses are looking towards more economically ways to conduct business as usual. One technology that businesses are using more frequently is video conferencing.
For years, video conferencing has been used by businesses on an infrequent basis as a way to communicate with clients and employees located outside of the corporate headquarters. As the technology has improved, and the cost for the equipment has decreased, businesses are finding that utilizing video conferencing equipment and software like that sold by the Blue Jeans Company is a much more viable and cost effective alternative to traveling.
Until recently, video conferencing could only take place in a stationary location. While this was fine for small companies, it was less than ideal for companies that employed more people than could fit in a standard sized conference room, especially if all employees need to participate in the meeting. As recently as the last couple years, video conferencing software has become affordable enough that companies can install the software on individual employee computers, allowing for more employees to participate in the meetings without having to leave their desks. The latest solution that businesses can take advantage of to cut back on the amount of travel that their employees are needed to take is mobile video conferencing.
