We have discussed the growing benefits of videoconferencing before. The concept is nothing new, but there are some new and exciting things happening in the videoconferencing world. According to Andrew Davis, an analyst with Wainhouse Research, the technology is “entering the mainstream of enterprise use at the personal [mobile] level.”
Why is this such a big deal? Well, just think about it. We are very visual creatures. And when it comes to business, telephone calls and email just won’t do. We need to conduct important business face-to-face, or as close to it as we can get when we are hundreds of miles away. This is where videoconferencing can help and has helped many businesses. And the future of this technology is brighter than ever.
The Future of Videoconferencing with Avaya
“What’s the future of video collaboration?” asked Avaya.com blogger Bob Romano. “I can quickly sum it up: exponential growth in the number of people and the number of places from where people will be collaborating via video.”
No longer is videoconferencing an office technology. Now, with the help of Avaya Scopia, the power of videoconferencing is in the palm of your hands, which is great with today’s increasing mobile workforce. Have a meeting, but you are sitting in the airport? No problem. Have a meeting, but you are at your son’s baseball game? No problem (except your wife might not be so happy). Have a meeting, but you are two states away? No problem! With videoconferencing, it is like you are right there in the room with your client and colleagues.
According to Forrester Research, “video’s usefulness arises out of its ability to replicate face-to-face interactions and communications — conversing in real time and seeing each others’ reactions no matter where they are located.”
And this is just the beginning of the many benefits of videoconferencing. Check back next week as we delve deeper into the subject.
