It has been said that nothing beats a face-to-face meeting, but as evolving technologies are further engrained into our work routines, and the business environment continues to become more global, emails and phone calls have become the communication standard. Obviously both email and the phone are invaluable in a business setting, especially in the digital industry, but there is still a lot to be said about the connections that can be made with an in-person meeting.
While the existence of video conferencing is not brand new, it has now been brought to the masses with Apple’s Facetime, Google’s Google Hangouts, and our old friend Skype. Achieving that face to face is now just as easy of picking up the phone or logging onto a website. For those instances when you really need to get a meeting in, but do not have the time needed to make a trek across town, or across the country, these technologies really aide in making it happen.
verbal+visual has partners in various states and time zones, and the use of these technologies allows us to create a connection with not only our clients here in New York, but those in Ohio or California for example.
Does your company utilize any of the mentioned technologies, or other video conferencing services?
