In today’s digital age, we can look to technology to eliminate certain expenses as well as provide a convenience factor in almost anything we do. Having a conference or board meeting is no exception to that. Take a look at the four advantages of using video conferencing.

1. Reduce travel cost.

No need to go through all the nuances of planning a trip to another city for a couple hour meeting. Simply go to your office, shut the door and connect with anyone around the globe.

2. Enhance productivity.

Sure, you can communicate through email and instant messaging, but having a real live video feed provides the face to face interaction needed that an email or voice call cannot provide.

3. Enhance communication across the enterprise.

During board meetings you can just tune in and use chat to ask questions during the meeting or see other questions from your peers.

4. Increase opportunities for innovation.

Video will allow for freeing up time to create new ideas to give you an additional boost for inspiration.
