Video conferencing is moving to the desktop.
Gone are the days of having to reserve that underutilized room in your office when hosting a video conference. With the emergence of cloud-based online meetings solutions like iMeet, businesses can utilize video conferencing anywhere, as long as they have access to the Internet and a computer. This evolution to desktop-based collaboration enables workers — both in the office and telecommuting — to use video conferencing in a variety of new ways, and use it much more effectively.
Video conferencing is not just for the Fortune 500.
The emergence of desktop video conferencing allows companies of all shapes and sizes to utilize the power of video. It is no longer mandatory to purchase expensive software, hardware and services to host video conferences. This short-and long-term cost reduction enables small businesses and mid-sized companies to partake in the value of video, as well.
Video conferencing is mobile.
Whether it is on your laptop, iPhone, coffee shop or working from home, video conferencing is now readily available — even on the go. Global virtual meetings companies, like PGi, give businesses the ability to enable video collaboration from any device, on any browser and at any time.
Video conferencing is not reserved for internal use only.
Many innovative businesses are finding a variety of reasons to host video conferences. These reasons range from sales calls to interviews and remote team building to board meetings. The versatility of video conferencing allows businesses to improve operational efficiency and cut down on costs associated with business travel.
The video collaboration market is growing.
More and more businesses are utilizing the power of video. It has proven to be a great way to build rapport with customers and clients when you cannot meet with them face to face. According to Frost & Sullivan, the desktop video market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 16% over the next five years. These numbers help to show that video conferencing is here to stay. If you do not have a video conferencing strategy, there is no better time than now to implement one.
