Videoconferencing has become “the next best thing to being there” for many businesses. Facilitating face-to-face collaboration for people who are in different locations, it can help businesses increase productivity while saving money on business travel expenses.
With videoconferencing, you can still have dynamic “in-person meetings” and “live” presentations and events – even if you’re on opposite ends of the country, or even in different countries. Videoconferencing is also considered a “green” technology as it eliminates the carbon dioxide emissions that result from driving and air travel.
But how do you know what to buy for your organization? The first step in determining this is to understand your main objectives for the system, including your usage requirements today and what they might be over the next three to five years. You don’t want to buy more than you need, but you do want a system that is going to scale with your business.
This slideshow highlights key features identified by Compare Business Products that you should consider when looking for a new videoconferencing system.
