Posted by: Schepisi - Friday, August 01, 2014

Lifesize Video Conferencing is a suite of hardware and software equipment that uses the power of video to allow you to collaborate with multiple individuals or groups, in real-time and from multiple locations. 

Whether you’re meeting with internal staff or clients, holding a training session or delivering a conference, Lifesize is a flexible, cost-effective and high-quality professional solution to video conferencing – all without the time and expense of travel.

Compared with the many free services available, Lifesize offers superior audio, a record / playback function, and no issues with adding or dropping people from the call.

As businesses expand, global communication is paramount…

…but that doesn’t mean global travel is compulsory.

Lifesize Video Conferencing offers businesses a powerful opportunity to connect meeting attendees from multiple locations, at the click of a button. 

It empowers individuals to create collaboratively and proactively engage with one another, as if they were sitting at the same table. 

Lifesize is the only video conferencing solution that has eliminated complicated hardware from its conference-room video experience. 

Other than the video endpoints, the entire Lifesize solution is built on software. This means that you’ll never need to worry about hardware issues interfering with your video conferencing.


For small businesses, travel costs can be unattainable

Numerous studies have shown that when it comes to engagement, interpersonal conversations beat a phone call hands-down.

 Regardless of your company size, when you start to add up the costs of travelling - not to mention the disruption to employees’ productivity, is travel always justified?

Lifesize offers an affordable, user-friendly and professional solution to any business that wants greater insight and participation from their meetings.


How quickly can I justify my video conferencing investment?

Here are ten reasons to use Lifesize Video Conferencing:

1. No airfare costs

Corporate travel can be expensive, especially when booked at the last minute. With a video conference, you just need to make it from your desk to the meeting room.

2. No more travel expenses

Forget expensive taxi charges, chauffeurs or hire cars. Gone are the hotel bills, room service charges and meal allowances.

3. Quality and Reliability

While there are a number of free services out there, Lifesize’s superior technology means your business will always be regarded as professional, high quality and efficient.

4. Travel time

The time it takes to get to an airport often eats into a working day, causing interruptions to work flow and often results in needing to work late. 

Early travel schedules are not much better - that 6.30am flight can lead to a rapid decline in productivity by 2pm!

5. Delays, delays, delays

Delayed flights can mean spending hours at the airport, struggling with a temperamental internet connection and interruptions to your work.
Worst case scenario: you miss the meeting altogether!

6. A trusted advisor

Studies show that humans demonstrate feelings of empathy and increased levels of trust when they can engage with body language, facial expressions and vocal intonations. 

Lifesize ensures the quality of your professional relationships is not diminished if you can’t travel to meet them face-to-face.

7. Be Green

Contribute to the environment and reduce your carbon footprint by committing to reduce your corporate travel. Use Lifesize as your environmentally friendly alternative.

8. Staff engagement

It’s not uncommon for offices around the globe, albeit part of the same business, to operate very distinctly from one another. 

Video Conferencing allows for a cohesive connection to form among your staff that not only improves engagement, but promises a sense of belonging to a common cause or objective.

9. Missed the meeting? No worries!

Lifesize has a unique function that allows the meetings to be recorded and played back. No minute-taking necessary and it’s easy to play back in your own time.

10. Invite anyone to attend

Lifesize is a standards-based system which is a shared technology among a number of providers. 

This means you can have video conferences with other people even if they don’t use the same type of system you use.
