The way that businesses communicate has been slowly changing over the past decade. Business owners discovered the advantages of solutions like VoIP and Unified Communications over traditional solutions, and more businesses continue to make the switch. Video conferencing had also been picking up momentum by the end of the decade before its popularity skyrocketed in 2020 due to workplace restrictions enacted by COVID-19. Like many changes in our lives as a result of the virus, we expect this one to remain relevant even after the dust settles and normal life resumes. How can your business benefit from video conferencing solutions?
Increased Employee Morale
A lot of employees have found themselves working from home for an extended period of time due to the spread of COVID-19. Throughout this time, they have discovered that teleworking offers the best of both worlds in terms of productivity and convenience. In fact, 77% of these employees want to keep working from home even after non-essential businesses are authorized to reopen. Offering the flexibility to work in your physical location or from home via a seamless video conferencing solution is sure to keep company morale high.
Video conferencing effectively lets you be in two places at once. This allows you and your staff to reliably collaborate and stay in touch from day to day. Rather than trying to share expertise over email or phone calls, businesses with video conferencing solutions can actively demonstrate the subject matter at hand. After that, they can sign off and instantly resume work in their preferred setting.
Travel expenses can very quickly add up. If your business has a large footprint within your state, or even across multiple states, a video conferencing solution can significantly cut down on travel costs for things like training, job interviews and conferences.
Build Better Relationships
In the short term, video conferencing provides the perfect means to spend quality time with people involved in your business. Currently, meeting clients or vendors for lunch to catch up is nearly impossible due to social distancing practices. However, video conferences allow you to catch up with those who have a hand in making your business what it is today. After the dust from COVID-19 settles, you can continue to use video conferencing as a way to provide more comprehensive and efficient customer service as well.
