Video conferencing (VC) is an increasingly popular option for meeting technology. For example, law firms book hundreds to thousands of VC meetings each year, connecting lawyers to lawyers and lawyers to clients around the globe. The investment in equipment is not trivial, as each site participating in the video conference requires a high-performance camera, a microphone, a speaker, a monitor with adequate display size, software and an IP or ISDN connection.
This generally means that only a few meeting spaces can be used for VC, even when the equipment is fitted to a mobile cart. Additionally, conference managers and service directors recognize that offering VC comes with a unique set of challenges: the technology is advanced and demands additional coordination, especially when it involves multiple offices, personnel, services, and recurrences.
With office space at a premium and the use of video conferencing on the rise, the likelihood is that scheduling bottlenecks will increasingly impact your organization’s productivity and bottom line.
