The lack of face-to-face communication can cause misunderstandings with in your teams, and worse, can result in lost or nonexistent communication.
Video Calls With Several Participants
Video conferencing is the technology that allows you to hold meetings with several correspondents who are located in different places while seeing them and talking to them in real time.
Competitive Advantage Over Your Competition
There is no benefit for being second in bringing new products or ideas to market, and video communication creates and maintains competitive advantage for your business. Teams that communicate through video will share knowledge faster and will be more informed, which reduces the time required to bring a new product or service to your customers. Support departments using videoconferencing can establish more personal relationships with their customers, which encourages a much deeper loyalty than just speaking on a phone with a call center.
