Why Video Conferences are Helpful to IT Personnel

Are you more productive on a phone or video call? Do you prefer meeting with people face to face or via a quick phone conversation? As an IT professional, it’s vital to stay up to date with the latest technology and collaborative tools to improve internal and external communications at your organization. While conference calls and in-person meetings are effective in certain scenarios, video conferencing solutions can make IT personnel more effective at their job.

With the rise of the remote workforce and the evolving nature of workplace responsibilities, IT professionals feel more pressure than ever to ensure that all communication channels are operating properly. Just as marketing or sales teams can use video conferencing solutions to collaborate with their teams, IT personnel can use these tools to ensure all systems are functioning optimally. Here are a few more ways IT workers can leverage video conferencing at their organization

Proactively solve tech issues

While small companies often have a small in-house IT team, larger organizations usually have off-site or even remote IT staff to handle tech issues. Video conferencing tools allow IT personnel to communicate effectively about various system problems or concerns. If IT professionals are based in numerous locations, video tech support lets teams collaborate and proactively address tech issues before they grow out of hand.

Improve operational productivity

Obviously, video conferencing tools are perfect for cutting down travel expenses and connecting remote teams. Yet, some professionals believe these solutions can be even more efficient and promote more operational productivity than normal in-person meetings. While face-to-face meetings can easily devolve into friendly chitchat, video conferences often have a designated start and end time, with people dialing in from all over. This makes veering off a meeting’s set agenda less likely.
