The business implications of this new coronavirus have caused panic in managers nationwide. Not only do you worry about monumental issues like staff retention and budget projections, but you want to keep up “business as normal” as much as you can. Though it’s tempting to go incognito for a while, we advise that you meet with staff as often as possible.
Why? Anxieties are running high in almost everyone right now, including your team. Regular meetings will ease some of that tension. Meetings not only loop people in on projects, but they also can boost morale by connecting people amidst this self-isolation season. Some companies are even ramping up their virtual time together for those reasons, and many others are also using their video conferencing software to host happy hours, trivia nights and other team activities.
But not all video conferencing software or hardware is created equal. Industry giants Zoom and Polycom, while effective tools alone, have teamed up for an impressive collaboration that should help you organize your sessions. Keep reading to see why we recommend them for your home office.

We live in a golden age of communication. Digital technology enables us to talk with anyone, anywhere in the world, in full motion video. We can share information instantly, doing in minutes what used to take days only 30 years ago.
Collaboration software has put a whole variety of what used to be separate functions together, letting us hold instant meetings either one to one, one to many, or many to many, at little to no cost save the availability of a robust Internet connection.
So, what’s in your conference and meeting rooms? Do you have the right cameras for today’s impromptu – or planned – video meetings? Are you set up to do a remote training session over video with crisp visuals and audio? Can you have an important meeting with a group halfway around the world and make sure nothing is lost in translation?

The nature of work and collaboration is changing. More powerful portable devices and new communication and collaboration software have radically changed the way information can be accessed and shared, speeding up decision making and changing the nature of workspaces as well.
We have discussed in the past the benefits of conference room technology and interactive displays for a variety of business and educational applications. Interactive displays can also improve collaboration. Just about everyone has a touchscreen smartphone, tablet, or other devices, and that has made the use of touch and gesture as common a way to interact with a computing device as a mouse, trackpad, and keyboard. Microsoft had also made touch interaction a standard part of the Windows operating system, popularizing desktop touchscreen monitors and displays on laptops that can double as tablets.

Zoom enables anyone with a laptop, tablet, or smartphone to set up and hold video and audio calls, collaborate, and share information through a simple interface. So easily, in fact, that over 750,000 companies large and small use Zoom regularly.
But Zoom is more than just a desktop video conferencing application. It’s a platform designed to bridge together most of the ways that modern organizations collaborate. In your office, you may have meetings of various sizes going on - from smaller huddle rooms to executive boardrooms, to larger training rooms. Zoom web conferencing allows for collaboration from any of those rooms to another team across town or around the world.
