Organizations need more efficient communications to enable greater productivity. A voice-only conference call probably isn’t enough. Without the use of video conferencing and screen share, participants are less likely to be engaged, are more apt to multi-task, and are probably missing the point. There has to be a way to keep oversubscribed knowledge workers focused, so your team gets more done, in less time.
Forget the special conference room or a special app with yet another address book and password to maintain. Employees want a tool that they can start in an instant and that is already part of their communication solution. Smart Office integrated into Kandy clients is the answer. HD audio and video conferencing, with screen share, keeps participants fully engaged. Anyone with a web browser can connect and participate; connect in the office or from the road. Meet with one person or use Outlook to invite dozens of participants from across the globe. Smart Office enables users to connect, collaborate, and make decisions.
Smart Office eliminates the common hassles that often afflict traditional meeting services – you don’t need to sign-up for every session and send out a different meeting address for every event. Smart Office provides each user with their own personal collaboration room that doesn’t change. If a meeting moves by 30 minutes, the meeting invitation doesn’t change. It’s quick and easy to extend a meeting to additional co-workers or guests by forwarding the meeting URL or using the meeting tools built-in to a Smart Office UC client. Either way, guests can join with just a web browser. Once connected, guests can hear and see each other, use group chat for sidebar discussions and of course, share screens/content and chat.
To be productive, collaboration users need to stay focused and engaged. Seeing body language and non-verbal cues offers tremendous benefits over a traditional audio-only conference call. Unfortunately, that doesn’t mean participants can’t get distracted. Thankfully Smart Office gives moderator’s powerful tools including:
You’ll never have to beg participants to mute themselves when their dog barks or when they enter a wind tunnel on their mobile phone.
Smart Office is tightly integrated with Kandy's supported Unified Communications clients allowing you to quickly escalate from a chat session to a full collaboration - with just a click.
