How Web Conferencing can help your remote workforceIn the last few years, web conferencing has been inserted more and more into the conversation around the idea of the remote workforce.  Whether you call it telecommuting or working remotely, the conversation has changed from whether the telecommuting trend is real and into studies showing that 70% of employees surveyed regularly work out of the office in 2012.

As telecommuting becomes more and more adopted by businesses,a recent survey regarding remote collaboration by Wrike.com showed collaboration and web conferencing software is becoming more crucial to maintain workforce efficiency for remote and internal workers:

The survey revealed that to a significant extent, the success of remote teams leans on the shoulders of helpful online collaboration software. A full 87% of respondents think that collaboration software is important or even mission critical for efficient work of their teams.

While the above is not surprising when considering that one of the biggest fears of the remote workplace is loss of efficiency, recent studies have started to show otherwise.

As the adoption of the open office is combined with the ability to work remotely, 56% of business decision makers are starting to see their remote workers as more efficient when provided the correct collaboration tools.

All in all, as the business workforce becomes more and more remote, web conferencing and collaboration software continues to become more and more necessary to make these teams more efficient.
