How Will Video Conferencing Streamline Your Business?

Business is very much an activity of interpersonal communication. Whether its daily meetings with coworkers or soliciting clients, you need to be able to communicate as efficiently and effectively as possible. Whereas before the advent of modern technology you’d have to make expensive trips in order to have a face-to-face discussion, video conferencing systems now allow you to talk to anyone in the world at any time from the comfort of your office. Installation of a video conferencing service can help streamline your business in multiple ways, including:

Business People in Video Meeting

Reduce Costs
According to a recent study, the typical business trip costs around $1,000. Think of all the expenses associated with flying an employee out to meet with a client. Substituting airfare, lodging, food, and other expenses with a video conference call will save your business tremendously in the long run.

Reduce Travel
Not all communication can be done virtually. Closing a deal or introducing a new supervisor are situations better left to face-to-face meetings, but for everything else, video conferencing can make frequent travel unnecessary. Less travel means more time for your employees to work on other business, and less stress from being away from home and family.

Improve Communication
Relying on back and forth emails to conduct business is time consuming. Phone calls do not allow you to pick up on the visual cues of body language, making it harder to gauge what the person on the other end is thinking and feeling. With video conferencing, you’ll be able to effectively communicate with anyone as if they were sitting directly in front of you.  

If you’re located in the Chicago area, streamline your business by having a video conferencing system installed by Tunnel Vision Technology Inc. By partnering with us for your video conferencing needs, you’ll get great service and be able to increase productivity.

If you plan on automating your home, start with remote climate control. There are many benefits to installing remote climate control in your home, including:

Air conditioner

Lower Energy Bill
Heating and cooling costs account for the majority of energy use in your home. Reduce the waste of unnecessary heating and cooling by having complete control over your home’s temperature setting. Intelligent climate control is able to acclimate your thermostat settings to the time of day, reducing heating and cooling when you’re away at work or going to bed, and cranking it up when you’re active in the home.

Room by Room Comfort
Depending on the size and layout of your home, different rooms may require different temperature settings. Whether you have an unused guest bedroom or a bathroom that you would like to remain at a comfortable temperature, a home automation system makes room-by-room climate control a real possibility for your home. 

Ease of Use
Remote control means that you’ll be able to make real-time changes to your home’s HVAC temperature settings no matter where you are. Did you forget to preset the thermostat for when you get home?
