Don’t Let Holiday’s Reduce Your Productivity and Communication: Use Video Conference Tools

 

Barry Moltz and Ramon - video phone callDuring the holiday’s you and your team (virtual, employees or consultants) want to take vacation time, leave early and come in late. Leveraging the power of technology to help you be as productive out of the office as you are in the office can help.

New research from Flex+Strategy Group, co-sponsored by Citrix reveals a surprising two-thirds have never used video or web conferencing and most are inconsistent in where they save and store work across company and personal platforms. That’s where the right web conferencing and file sharing tools come into play.

According to Citrix, Imagine these two scenarios:

You’re at Grandma’s house for Thanksgiving dinner, but you still have to finish that proposal due tomorrow and you don’t have access to your desktop. No need to fret! Use your tablet to browse files or folders and share them with file sharing tools such as Citrix ShareFile, DropBox, Google Drive or Microsoft OneDrive.

You’re down to the wire buying gifts this holiday season and you have five back-to-back work conference calls. No problem — you can do it all using the Citrix GoToMeeting mobile app to join your meetings from any location or tools such as Zoom.us, WebEx and etc.

The time to be productive and communicate effectively, remotely, is not when you’re in an emergency and in the situation – but before hand. Have your notebook prepared, software installed and test the technology.

    Cool article, though I’d mention ClickMeeting as a great video conference tool. It even is integrated with many useful apps. It saved me a few times!
