Video conferencing has made its way into our modern offices as a pillar of collaboration and communication, and for good reason. One of the major benefits businesses find when they deploy video technology is the ability to make more informed decisions faster, as face-to-face interaction gives them the clarity they need to move forward without hesitation.
Meet with Minimal Distractions
We all know what its like to dial into an audio-only meeting. You put yourself on mute and start the ritual of clearing out your outstanding notifications followed by a healthy amount of not actually paying attention to the meeting. Just by employing video conferencing, not only do you get to brush up on your meeting etiquette, you also automatically cut out external interferences. By minimizing distractions through meeting face-to-face, your team is able to reach maximum productivity and start getting things done.
Cut Out Miscommunication
With 93% of communication being nonverbal in nature, being able to physically see and interact with the person on the other end of a business call is nothing short of crucial. Meeting face-to-face over video eliminates the miscommunication — no more overanalyzing every word in an email or text message, no more dreaded “…” bubbles waiting for a reply and no more “Sorry, I thought you meant the exact opposite of what you just said.”
Get Real-Time Responses with Real-Time Urgency
Every minute counts in the office, especially when it comes to making important business decisions. And when decisions have to be made in a timely manner, getting responses that beat around the bush and never get to the point is just plain irritating. With video conferencing, you can turn off the noise and get the clarity you’re looking for in real time.
The search for faster decision making is just one of the reasons businesses deploy video conferencing. Check out our new guide on the Top Five Reasons Businesses Crave Video Conferencing (and why it belongs in your tech stack).
