Always-on video portals are common solutions for bridging office connectivity gaps. This is particularly important for organizations with offices in several countries, where a lack of knowledge can be a communication obstacle.

Fremont, CA: Remote work has been a very isolated experience for some employees. Employees thought that everything they were doing was what other teams needed.

As remote work becomes more popular, companies must devise strategies to ensure timely and high-quality contact. This entails developing contact networks that compete with real-world connections.

Although there are numerous channels available, video conferencing is increasingly being used as a real-time bridge between offices, providing the next best thing to face-to-face contact.

Always-On Video Portals

Always-on video portals are common solutions for bridging office connectivity gaps. This is particularly important for organizations with offices in several countries, where a lack of knowledge can be a communication obstacle.

For instance, if teams are constantly switching time zones, unsure if they should call because they don't know whether anyone is in the office or just feel disconnected. Always-on video portals work to create a two-way live stream between two offices, allowing anyone on either side to see into the other.

Always-on video portals can be used to put teams closer together, provide a convenient way for teams to check whether someone is at their desk, and allow for fast communication without the need to call someone. This can be useful in a variety of ways, the most important of which is that it eliminates some of the gaps between departments, ensuring that everyone is still aware of what is going on.

Selecting the Best Video Conferencing Solution

Always-on video portals can be used to put teams closer together, provide a convenient way for teams to check whether someone is at their desk, and allow for fast communication without the need to call someone. This can be useful in a variety of ways, the most important of which is that it eliminates some of the gaps between departments, ensuring that everyone is still aware of what is going on.

For example, if the majority of one's contact consists of scheduled meetings and phone calls, one will need a tool with good scheduling, user access management, and reminders. If contact is sporadic and individuals mostly need feedback or the sharing of files and work items, one can look for resources that facilitate the type of work their people are doing. Furthermore, if one's communication is mostly light and they simply want to improve the quality of their communication by switching to video, free resources are most likely perfect.
