    Even before offices began sending employees home, digital nomads, as well as employees working remotely on occasion, have been increasingly common, using conferencing tech to communicate with colleagues.

     

    With this in mind, we look at some conferencing platforms that are on the market currently, and the benefits they offer self-isolating employees.

    Know more: what does contingent mean?

    Microsoft Teams

    One of the many prominent conferencing platforms is Microsoft Teams, which offers video and audio calls, as well as chatroom capabilities between two people as well as groups.

     

    Calls can be recorded, and documents can be shared over chat.

     

    The platform recently announced the possibility of coexistence and interoperability with Skype for Business.

    Cisco Webex

    Cisco’s offering to conferencing, Cisco Webex, allows for video conferencing with possible integration of other applications, such as Outlook, Google Drive and Salesforce.

     

    The platform has seen seven times more usage recently, and chief technologist at Cisco, Chintan Patel, said: “While there is no replacement for meeting face-to-face and being in the same room as a colleague or customer, video meetings are proven to be more effective than voice calls.

     

    “In fact, 93% of employees say video calls improve interactions and client relationships.”
