The work-from-home mandate in the wake of the global COVID-19 pandemic over the past months has sparked a fresh appreciation for effective videoconferencing solutions. Whether communicating internally within an organization or with outside clients, videoconferencing, whenever possible, makes interactions much more personal, memorable and, we believe, effective.
We are both old enough to remember when professional videoconferencing technology was cost-prohibitive for all but the largest firms. About 10 years ago, we indulged in a “low-cost” mobile videoconference solution that cost more than $30,000. These days you only need services such as Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Webex, GoToMeeting, etc. paired with the proper equipment (microphone, computer, webcam). Today, by purchasing these components for less than a couple thousand dollars, you can host your own videoconference from your home office or your office conference room.
