Virtual meetings can help business continuity

When major events happen, time is of the essence to prepare your response and to get your organisation equipped to compete effectively. Speeding up the process of getting things to move forward despite the circumstances is vital. Have you thought of all the external factors that might disrupt your business? 


Take a look at some common scenarios

  • Adverse weather like heat, rain, hail or floods that will impact travel
  • Industrial action that puts a strain or closes public transport
  • Engine malfunctions or poor weather conditions that can make air travel difficult or slow
  • Other conditions that mean that people are unwilling to commute or need to work from home

Web conferencing  as a solution

All modern web conferencing solutions require is an internet connection and participants can join a meeting from anywhere – meaning you can still communicate with other participants, make presentations, share data and even collaborate on developing a design or document. 

Quick and easy communication that is put in place will have a very positive impact on staff morale. Reducing the time it takes to produce the transition plans and getting the new plans/ideas up and running will have a very positive impact on customers and stakeholders as well.

It is in difficult times like this where virtual meetings are indispensable. Communication lines can be kept open even if participants are not in the same room. Virtual meetings are often like ‘almost being there’. They can ensure that teams are well equipped to make business decisions and ensure business continuity.

Don’t wait for an adverse situation to affect your business. Start using a conferencing solution suited to the needs of your organisation.
