In the last few years, our society has become more dependant on the cloud than ever before. There’s no need to ever worry about losing work due to natural disasters or power outages with the cloud, and you can access the information stored there from almost any electronic device. But did you know that cloud videoconferencing is another way you can take advantage of the cloud for your business?
Cloud videoconferencing popular in colleges
Many colleges take advantage of cloud videoconferencing every day. In fact, it is common among online high schools also. If there is an online course, it is important for teachers to be able to communicate with their students from anywhere. It is even a nice way to continue holding class when the weather may not permit anyone to go outside. According to Computer World, there were many teachers who used cloud videoconferencing to hold virtual classes from their homes when Winter Storm Juno hit Boston in January. The concept can easily transfer to the business world and use by your small business.
Small business use of the cloud
Your business is probably already taking advantage of the cloud to store documents and data, but you may want to consider initiating a cloud videoconferencing system as well. You could easily communicate with employees who aren’t at the office. One of the advantages to this is that employees can continue to work when sick with something such as a cold without getting the rest of the office sick or who have to stay home with sick kids. It also means that your office can offer telecommuting to employees, which is a huge advantage to getting great employees who need or want to work from home. Telecommuting is very popular right now because it saves time and money. Millennials would jump at a chance to telecommute and would often take pay cuts to do it. There are so many advantages to offering video conferencing services in your company; why wouldn’t you make the change?
