I don’t know about you, but in the past I’ve often had the unfortunate experience of fighting over limited conference rooms with others in the company. With this economy, video and teleconferencing is that value-added service which set you and competitors apart, yet we rather not waste valuable financial resources on extra meeting rooms that cannot be multipurposed. So when Logitech introduced their new BCC950 Conference Cam, I knew this will be a great solution to end those frustrations. So, what is so great about Logitech’s new conference cam? Simply put, it’s a simple little gadget that will turn your personal/work space into the new conference room.

Why Video Conference? Read About Some of its Top Benefits

Still haven’t made the leap to video conferencing?  Well it’s time to consider with all the benefits video conferencing could bring to your business or organization.  One of our customers were able to save over $30,000/year in travel expenses by reducing the need to travel from branch-to-branch with one of our video conferencing solutions.

Based on Polycom’s research, some top benefits are:

  1. Reduced travel costs
    • By substituting routine business trips with video conferencing – you get all the benefit of face-to-face meeting without the cost of traveling.
  2. Increased productivity
    • The time saved from traveling could be put to better use on other business matters.
    • By using video conferencing to conduct distant meetings instead of non-visual methods like emails/instant messaging/phone calls, your workforce could better understand and  collaborate with their colleagues based on additional visual cues.
  3. Improved hiring and retention of top talent for your work force
    • Instead of paying for the recruiter or candidates to travel for interviews, organizations could reduce time and expenses to conduct the interview over video conferencing either from their own home or via satellite offices.
    • Additionally, video conferences could be recorded for post-analysis instead of relying on pure memory or notes taken during the interview process to assist in the hiring decision.
  4. Sustained competitive advantage
    • Workforce can communicate via video to share knowledge and improve communication/collaboration.
    • Sales and support forces can also utilize video conferencing to engage their customer/clients and built the personal relationship needed for the business.
    • Video also allows executives to appeal directly to numerous audiences at once in their pipeline.
  5. Green technology
    • And of course, by communicating over video the need for travel is reduced along with the associated carbon foot print.
