How To Convince Your Boss About Video Collaboration
To open the minds of managers resistant to the modern business video conferencing, LifeSize has come up with a number of key ‘talking points’. The video leader’s posted some useful business case drivers to try and help users articulate better just why this approach makes sense.
Key to its argument: cost benefit. In business, as the company points out, all decisions come down to profitability. The good news for video conferencing fans, though, is that with video, the days of expensive journeys to see colleagues, partners or customers could be gone for good – which means travelling expenses should plummet.
The company also says its customers report high increases in productivity: based on the proven psychological fact that being able to pick up on non-verbal clues – the kind you can’t get from phone calls but can from video interactions – means that meetings conducted using the medium can be much more effective.
Finally, LifeSize says that an HD video communications system can be more than a just a substitution for a face to face physical meet, useful as that is. It’s really a powerful collaboration tool that could be used to speed up information and knowledge exchange in project work processes and sales interactions, too.
