Mobile video can foster more effective collaboration at work.
No one can deny that mobile video is fast becoming a necessity in today’s fast-paced, global business environment. The technology is clearly transforming the way we do business in more ways than one. Some of the most glaring benefits of using mobile video include reduced travel costs, the ability to deliver content on-demand as needed, and the ability to foster more effective collaboration in the workplace, even on a global scale. The ability to foster real-time face-to-face interaction has also proved beneficial in connecting businesses to their target customers.
The Importance of Mobile Video in the Workplace
Mobile video plays a very important role in creating a more flexible work environment. The availability of video-ready smartphones and tablets made it easy for business partners, colleagues and team members to collaborate with each other and to connect and interact with their customers. According to the results of a recent survey, about 43% to 46% of respondents indicate that it accounted for faster customer issue resolution and improved customer satisfaction.
The technology also allows for the speedy delivery of information which is a must in today's fast paced business environment. By delivering content on demand as needed, you are empowering your employees to make faster and more informed decisions, thereby increasing your chances of grabbing new business opportunities as they arise. Without a doubt, this can give you the competitive edge you have always dreamt of.
Mobile video can also help lower travel costs. Recent studies show that 43% of employees use their tablets to access web meetings while 33% use them to access video conferences. On the other hand, 10% to 13% of employees use their smartphones to engage in the same activities.
Mobile video technology also gives you the ability to see body language and facial expressions. This enables you to accurately gauge your employees' or team members' level of involvement and understanding and gives you the opportunity to make sure your virtual workforce remains as engaged and productive as possible.
In addition, mobile video collaboration allows users to tap into the expertise of their colleagues in real-time. This is extremely important since studies show that employees who grew up in a tech-focused environment perform better when they have access to their colleagues’ experience and expertise, and when they share their own.
Taking all of these things into consideration, it can be established that mobile video technology plays an extremely vital role in today's business environment and is fast becoming one of the most important tools in fostering collaboration in the workplace.
