Globalisation, flexible working, hot desking and the need for instant communication has inevitably led to an increase in the need for teleconference and telepresence technology. Staff, customers, suppliers and stakeholders are rarely in the same place at the same time which makes meetings challenging – but now virtual meetings can happen thanks to modern communications technology – effectively delivering video conferencing and voice conferencing with amazing clarity and quality of both image and sound. Both teleconferencing and telepresence offer businesses improved communications, strengthening customer and staff relationships, and enabling conversation without having to leave the office. In a business world where the emphasis is on the ‘here and now’ these tools can be a major asset to any business proposition. In addition, reduced business travel and less time in face-to-face meetings has genuine benefits including time management and cost savings – reducing overheads and improving efficiency.
Teleconferencing facilities will allow you to communicate either audibly or visually through a telecommunications system (via a phone or computer). This may be adequate for your needs. However, if you want a more virtual experience, telepresence is a growing business tool that allows you to ‘virtually’ attend a remote event (via Skype, FaceTime, etc).
