The ReadyTalk team is heading to Orlando next week for the annual Enterprise Connect conference. This show brings together professionals, vendors, and service providers from across the Telecomm, IT, Unified Communications, Video Conferencing, and Remote Collaboration fields. There is much to learn on the future of collaboration services and we'll be there attending sessions and exhibiting in the expo where we're debuting our new mobile audio conferencing applications to the masses.
There is a lot of excitement in the industry over the potential of WebRTC to change the face of collaboration and web based communication. So much so that an entire track is dedicated to it over the course of the conference. The changing landscape that the unified communications space has brought to the enterprise is also a major topic of discussion. The proliferation of smartphones and the ever changing video conferencing landscape are sure to be major themes from this show as well. We are keeping a close eye on where the industry is heading and where ReadyTalk fits in the often confusing and cluttered picture of enterprise collaboration.
One problem we know we can fix is the issue of starting your meetings on time. There is an insane amount of lost productivity due to delayed meetings in the workplace. Making some assumptions about your current workplace in the graphic below - it's safe to say we're being conservative when we say 15% of meetings start 10 or more minutes late. With some simple math, you can see just how much money your organization is wasting to lost productivity with people just sitting around fussing with technology trying to get their meeting going. What if we could affect that number even a little bit? Wouldn't that be worth it? If not in real dollars saved, then at least in the sanity of your employees.
ReadyTalk is tackling this problem head on with connectivity tools and integrations that enable you to start your web and audio meetings with a click of a button while never leaving your workflow. The product we believe will have the greatest impact is our new mobile audio applications - which enable you to start or join your audio meetings with one click and we call you on ANY phone. It's not a meeting without audio and we know that nobody in their right mind likes dialing endless strings of 800 numbers, access codes, and pin codes just to get a call going.
Stay tuned for some post-show findings in the coming weeks. We're excited for the opportunities and innovation in this industry and are eager to learn about the latest and greatest in enterprise collaboration.
