When it comes to working remotely in any scenario, technology has not been up to speed with the needs of the market. Leveraging the benefits of mobile and remote work with the global marketplace, we have bitten off more than we can chew.
Think of a project which could be completed remotely, saving on overhead, and increasing the productivity of the employees working. This is every employers dream: a quick, cost effective way to complete projects without having to be in an office to do it. Many companies began to launch such projects without seeing the potential issues which could arise.
This line of thinking came with the development of the video conference. While this was leaps and bounds greater than the traditional conference call, actually being able to see and interact with those in another location, being able to see what was happening was not enough to keep employees engaged in the meetings.
The lack of interaction with data, such as sharing a whiteboard for formula and idea examples, left much to be desired, and the larger the platform has grown, the larger the problem has grown. Take any group which would share a large amount of data. How would they share and present the data while in one of these video conferences in a clear, constructive way?
The key for this application is go to beyond seeing and dive directly into content interaction. The enterprise needs more content to be shared in order to allow users to effectively communicate and collaborate in ideas. Visual collaboration can include content to be displayed during the meeting and make itself accessible to those to access once the meeting has concluded.
Being able to access information and bring it forward from one session to another is extremely important to track trends, growth, and see the overall progress of one or several aspects of the company to maintain an attainable time-frame and keep the visual in mind that he projects are still not completed. This is a motivating tool used in several instances.
Having this visual collaboration technology can help earn new clients, get you to market faster, and allow you a foot up from your competitors. This technology continues to evolve. New mobile features are giving employees the ability to speak and attain information from home offices, on the road, and in boardrooms across the country.
