The hybrid workplace is here to stay. But with the influx of meeting solutions on the market and lack of interoperability between these cloud-based video conferencing solutions and boardroom video conferencing hardware systems, having the flexibility you need to connect to multiple third-party meeting apps can be difficult.

In this article by CMSWire, we speak to the growing need for interoperability in a company’s video conferencing solution as businesses continue to expand remote work opportunities and convert into hybrid workplaces. Effective communication tools that allow employees to collaborate regardless of work location or video conferencing software are extremely important to fostering productivity in the new digital-first workplace.

    • In many cases, interoperability is a core element to building the Human Enterprise. By allowing us to more comfortably collaborate using familiar technology tools, apps and business systems, communications interoperability helps employees become the best, most productive, efficient and innovative versions of their work selves. Looking to the not-so-far-off horizon, interoperability provides the foundation for other macrotrends, including hybrid work, time-based collaboration and the combining of unified communications and contact centers, all of which will be critical to the future of work as we know it.
