“When you have such a global workforce, it’s really important that they’re able to connect face to face, even if they can’t be in the same physical space.”

“One thing that resonated strongly with us was how we could use Teams to create virtual war rooms. These online spaces are every bit as secure as a meeting room, and we no longer need to work out the logistics of bringing team members physically together from across multiple locations.”

 

- Craig Smith, Global Chief Information Officer

Video conferencing is an online meeting between two or more participants using a camera and a microphone so attendees can see and hear each other. Businesses and individuals can use video conferencing to communicate with each other quickly and easily and to collaborate on projects as a group. Video conferencing solutions like Microsoft Teams allow one-on-one meetings or meetings with dozens of participants and include features such as screen sharing and background blur. Video conferencing solutions also make it possible to record and share meetings.

There are many benefits to using video conferencing software. Meeting online reduces the need for commuting and expensive travel and increases scheduling flexibility. With video conferencing software, instead of waiting hours or days for everyone to be in the same place, you can organize meetings quickly and meet your business goals faster.

The built-in instant messaging, screen sharing, and file sharing capabilities in Microsoft Teams video conferencing software help improve collaboration and overall productivity and allow geographically distant team members to remain connected. Video conferencing can help foster a sense of togetherness when in-person collaboration isn’t possible.

Video conferencing can save time, boost productivity, promote collaboration, and help cut some costs such as travel expenses. In addition, video conferencing allows remote employees to meet and communicate virtually. Scheduling meetings couldn’t be easier with video conferencing software. With a steady internet connection, team members can join from nearly anywhere on any device.

Video conferencing is much more engaging than traditional audio conferencing. When face-to-face meetings are not possible, video conferencing helps retain certain vital elements of in-person communication by closing the distance and fostering more engagement between participants. With video conferencing, your organization can get more done while providing more flexibility and helping employees create a more positive work/life balance.
