Are You Still Using Audio Conference Calls?
We live in a world where there’s new technology on the market seemingly as soon as you purchase the old version. There’s no doubt that it can be difficult to keep up. As a business owner, though, it’s extremely important that your technology evolves with your business.
Since nowadays everyone is so connected, it’s important that you’re able to connect with your colleagues and clients no matter where you or they may be. To keep up with traveling, sick days, and multiple offices, having a virtual meeting space that anyone can make it to is crucial.
So, are you still using audio conference calls? If you want to maximize your business’s efficiency and make sure everyone is kept in the loop, it may be time to switch to HD web conferencing.
Join from anywhere, with any device.
The main benefit of HD meeting programs is that whether you’re in a hotel room, your home office, or anywhere in between, you are able to join a video conference call. Use your iPhone, Android, laptop or tablet. If you don’t have a video compatible device on hand, you can call in from a phone and simply contribute audio without video. In a nutshell: it’s extremely flexible.
Have the ability to share.
There’s one important thing that you can’t do on an audio conference call: provide visuals. With a video conference software, you can share applications, documents, and even your entire desktop screen with other people on the call. This makes it easier to review data, discuss strategies, and collaborate on documents without having to hold a physical meeting. Approvals are quicker, brainstorming sessions are more productive, and all-around business operations are smoother.
Don’t miss a date.
Video conference programs like OfficeSuite HD Meeting™ make sure that you don’t miss meetings. Sync your Google or Outlook calendar with HD Meeting to make sure everyone gets an invite and a reminder. If others have arrived to the call before you, then you’ll get an e-mail reminder that it’s time to join.
OfficeSuite HD Meeting also offers the unique opportunity to transfer host controls among meeting participants so that they can take the virtual “podium.” This allows you to mute participants, privatize the meeting, or turn off video functions to avoid distractions. Then, you can use annotation tools, which work as a virtual whiteboard that allows you to take notes on documents and presentations.
