With the COVID-19 coronavirus at the forefront of today’s news, companies are encouraging their staff to work from home. Conferences and events are being cancelled. Even if your organization is not cancelling in-person meetings or events, you can still save money with virtual connections.
ONE-ON-ONE MEETINGS: for this you can use free tools, such as the most obvious one, your phone. As well, if you want to see the person on the other end, you can use video calling using apps like Skype or Google Hangouts.
MANY-TO-MANY MEETINGS: there are dozens of players in this space, such as Webex, Skype, Zoom Meetings, GoToMeeting, Join.me, or even a free service called Jitsi Meet (https://meet.jit.si/).
ONE-TO-MANY LEARNING: Want to host an online training session? These are typically referred to as webinars, and we use WebinarNinja for our training sessions. There are many more similar paid tools out there.
REMOTE INTO WORK: If you want your staff the option of working from home, connecting remotely can be a challenge. Maintaining secure work computers with potentially insecure home computers is a concern. We have a cost-effective and secure solution for this for all your staff.
While nothing beats talking to people face-to-face, if you are concerned about employee health, there are options. The cost savings are also obvious, as you can save expenses such as fuel, meals and accommodations. If you have a need for such a tool and want a professional recommendation, talk to us.
