How Has The Webcam Transformed Your Life?
The impact webcams have had on modern society are truly mind boggling in both a business and leisure context, statistics from Skype are testament to just that.
This year Skype is celebrating ten years of bringing millions of people together. In that time more than a staggering 1.4 trillion minutes of voice and video calls have been made – the equivalent of more than 2.6 million years of conversations made in only ten year’s time.
Advancements in technology and computer communications mean that even the most sceptical SME’s and home users are now joining the revolution! So at the Post Office Shop we think now is the perfect time to invest in affordable video conference equipment with our great deals on webcams.
Communications that would otherwise be conducted via email or over the phone can now be undertaken remotely ‘face to face’ from the comfort of your office or home via video conferencing where before it may have meant travelling considerable distances to conduct a meeting or conducting a less personal, yet expensive phone call.
Videoconferencing has linked people globally enabling business meetings and social liaisons to be legitimately conducted remotely plus monitor conversational partner’s expressions and body language in the same way as if you were actually in the same room.
In a business context, according to recent research undertaken by conference calling service Powwow, more than two thirds (70%) of SMEs would prefer to have a video conference rather travel to meetings and almost two thirds (65%) of senior management questioned believe that video conferencing will replace conference calls and become the preferred method for business communication in the future.
Video conferencing is an ideal way for small business owners to reduce costs, saving time previously spent travelling and offering increased flexibility by facilitating remote working.
