Removing the Limitations of Location
Location is traditionally one of the most limiting factors when it comes to people in different offices coming together and meeting. With breakthroughs in video conferencing systems and audio-visual equipment
, location is no longer the obstacle it once was.
An office may be situated in Toronto, but there may be other offices, employees and clients situated anywhere in the world. These other locations may play important roles in the following:
- Knowledge sharing
- Decision making
- Collaborating on projects, ideas and deals
There are challenges when it comes to bringing people together from different locations, but the excellent video conferencing options available today make it easier than ever before to create virtual face-to-face meetings. People are able to meet at a moment's notice without worrying about travel arrangements and costs.
The Appeal of Video Conferencing
Actually meeting with people face-to-face will always be the preferred way to communicate in business. Video conferencing
is quickly becoming the new standard for distance communication. It allows people to communicate with visual materials as well as sound to further enhance the experience.
New video conferencing technologies also give participants additional freedom for taking part in the conference. This means that whether people are in a boardroom or simply using a browser on a laptop in a remote location, everyone can be connected.
A Competitive Edge
In addition to video conferencing, dynamic businesses are going the extra step to create innovative new communication solutions. These solutions are sometimes referred to as collaborative ecosystems. The goal behind a collaborative ecosystem is to create an environment where audio-video (AV) equipment is seamlessly integrated with IT to promote additional creativity and collaboration between locations.
The business industry is extremely competitive and successful businesses are always looking for a competitive edge. Investing in a collaborative ecosystem is one way for a business to become more dynamic and agile. It allows people from different locations to communicate, collaborate and make important decisions from all over the world. In a fast paced business world, the ability to make well-educated decisions faster than the competition is often the key to being successful. These ecosystems are designed to allow people to trade ideas and make these decisions while feeling more immersed in the conversation.
Seamless Integration of Technologies
A business can purchase an excellent video conferencing system. A business can also purchase the latest AV equipment. Challenges arise when it comes time to integrate these technologies to form a complete ecosystem. Existing IT infrastructure will play an important part in how well the system functions as well.
It is important to trust the creation of the collaborative ecosystem to professionals with the following credentials:
- Expert video conferencing knowledge (including certifications where possible)
- AV equipment expertise
- IT knowledge
A custom collaborative solution company will take the business requirements and find the perfect solution that integrates all of the technologies
into an immersive and interactive environment promoting creative collaboration. These experts will also be able to implement automation controls to ensure that the solution is both effective and user-friendly.
