Meeting Rooms of the Future

Want to boost your business’ productivity? Looking for better ways to collaborate, successfully? Videoconferencing is no new idea, but oftentimes the conference room technology provided leaves much to be desired. We’ve all sat through tedious attempts at videoconferencing with faulty equipment or lag times that leave you stumped or guessing what was said. That need not be the case! Meeting rooms are rapidly going digital, with businesses making use of greatly improved quality digital conference room technology and software.

Using conference room technology opens up the possibility of pulling in previously inaccessible resources and people, since there are no geographical limitations. You can have team members across the globe if desired. Also considering the rise of digital workplaces and technology, up to 59% of senior business managers expect to make the switch to digital conferencing in 2014.
