The holidays are an exciting time of the year. Employees are in high spirits in anticipation of their festivities and many businesses are seeing increased sales as a result of gift buying.
However, the holiday season can also be a hectic time for enterprises. Employees’ propensities to take time off during the holidays can prompt companies to delegate tasks to other workers or even bring on contracted freelancers to meet quotas. When employees do not take time off, they may decide to work from home, particularly if they need to travel far distances to be with their families on their respective holidays. According to AAA, one-third of Americans will travel during the 2018 holiday season via planes, trains, and automobiles, signifying a 4.4 percent increase since 2017.
Fortunately, innovations in technology have improved enterprise collaboration efforts when employees need to work remotely. Whether your employees are staying home for the holidays or traveling to a different continent, you can count on reliable web conferencing tools to connect all staff, no matter where in the world they are.
Seeing Is Believing
The major reason enterprises gain more value from web conferencing tools than they do from audio communication alone is the connection they get from a face-to-face conversation. When employees meet with their co-workers through a web conference, they can get a better feel of their tone and body language. It’s the next best thing aside from in-person contact.
Compatibility Across Different Devices
Clients may become extremely frustrated when your communication tools do not align with their technology and vice versa. However, using a web conferencing tool as sophisticated as GlobalMeet allows anyone to collaborate, no matter what type of device they are using.
This can also provide value when communicating internally with employees whose personal devices are a different make than the technologies they use at work. If they go on vacation or travel to meet up with family, they may only bring along their personal devices. GlobalMeet’s seamless integration allows employees to become readily available at a moment’s notice.
If an employee needs to contact a co-worker or client to give a visual presentation, such as a product demo or a training session, they should feel confident doing so through a web conference. These tools allow individuals to share their screens or communicate directly with exceptional video quality.
Perhaps someone in your enterprise needs to present a sales pitch to a client across the world. They should have no trouble communicating their message effectively. With access to multimedia content that can make the pitch stand out. No matter what time zone, web conferencing technologies provide exceptional service across state and country lines.
