Video conferencing anywhere
Take the meeting with you
Video conferencing lets you meet with colleagues, partners and customers, regardless of where they are or what device they are using. It is a powerful tool for collaboration that gives your organisation a faster, more effective and unified way of doing business.
Responding to new trends
Analysts say that 40% of workers that were typically desk based are now away from their desk for at least a fifth of the time. Mobile video is now the fastest growing mobile application and is expected to account for two thirds of all data consumption in 2015. It is important that we plan and take advantage of this by enabling our users to make best use of video to collaborate internally, and with our customers and suppliers. To do this should be easy without all the complexity of the old room based video conferencing systems that we may be familiar with.
NT recommends a range of video conferencing solutions that includes the most comprehensive and scalable products in the market today that have been developed based on years of experience designing IP based conferencing solutions from the ground up.
Today's way of doing business means we are more scattered than ever. Our employees may be home working, on the road, in different branch offices or travelling; and our suppliers may be located in any part of the country. As we branch out further, entering new markets to compete, our customers could be located in any part of the globe. Video conferencing gives you an inexpensive, easy and convenient way for every member of your organisation to meet and talk face-to-face more frequently with suppliers, customers and each other. Face-to-face communication is immensely powerful - participants are more likely to stay alert and focused on what is being discussed, and consequently projects are completed faster, productivity increases, and participants feel more in synch with each other and with the message you want to convey.
A two hour flight to some European destination is never just a two hour flight: there's the time taken to book the trip, the drive to the airport, check in and waiting around, the flight time itself, baggage reclaim, the taxi commute to the hotel - and that's before you've even started your meeting. With video conferencing, you just turn your system on and connect, saving you and your team hours of valuable time and providing a convenient solution for all involved.
Save travel costs
The annual UK spend on business travel is around £24 billion, according to the Institute of Travel & Meetings - and this doesn't factor in employee time, including all the 'sundry' time aside from the meeting itself. Nor does it factor in expenses such as hotel costs, petrol and taxis, food and entertainment. Video conferencing allows you to keep in touch and enjoy all the benefits of face-to-face communication without the associated expense.
Work with anyone, from anywhere
Video conferencing connects your organisation to other businesses, branches and people - worldwide. Connect your international offices together at the touch of a button. Recruit from anywhere around the world, or expand your supplier base to get the best possible prices without the worry of dealing with a faceless entity on the other side of the planet.
Protect the environment
Because video conferencing allows staff, employees and contacts to collaborate with less need for travel, this allows your company to reduce its carbon footprint by reducing the association pollution that would have otherwise resulted from arranging a face-to-face meeting.
Stay connected, whatever life throws at you
There are many situations where key employees find themselves unable to come into the office and this can inhibit and delay important meetings. Bad weather, a car breakdown, personal issues such as an ill partner, child or childminder - these are all an unavoidable part of daily life. With video conferencing, you can stay in touch wherever you are from any device, ensuring business as usual whatever life throws your way.
