Better Business Opportunities through Online Meetings

Meetings are a necessity of business. They provide employees a platform to enhance relationships achieve goals, improve productivity and more. But if your team isn’t equipped with the right tools to meet remotely, those meetings can mean missed opportunities. The right online meeting and video conferencing solutions can mean better outcomes for employees and the organization as a whole.

Today’s work environment creates a new set of challenges for the professionals responsible for choosing the tools that keep a business running. Online meeting tools need to be easy to manage, but also fit the pressures of a mobile workforce, rising demands on productivity and the need to keep to costs down.

Work/life balance also plays a role. A recent survey from IDG Research Services and Cisco WebEx revealed that 44% of those responsible for delivering resources to their co-workers mentioned achieving a healthy work/life balance as a top challenge to holding in-person meetings.

When employees are enabled to do their jobs better, businesses can overcome obstacles like poor productivity and slow-decision making. And the most agile companies can use these surface-level benefits to propel their business forward to new opportunities, more revenue and higher levels of achievement.

In a newly released white paper, “Enabling Business Opportunities with Online Meetings and Video Conferencing,” takes a deeper dive into the minds of professionals who hold key resource positions within their teams, the challenges in-person meetings present them, and the endless possibilities online meetings and video conferencing platforms enable.
