To excel in today’s fast-paced business world, you have to interact and collaborate with co-workers, clients and customers all over the world. Building and maintaining relationships often requires face-to-face communication, but what if you needed to talk to someone immediately that was out-of-state or even out of the country? Cisco TelePresence is making this face-to-face experience possible.
TelePresence provides a live, in-person experience with the quality, simplicity and reliability of a telephone call, but it’s over the network! It integrates advanced audio, high-definition video and interactive elements with the power of the network.
Cisco TelePresence was first introduced in Oct. 2006 and is being used in many businesses all around the world.
There are many business benefits of TelePresence. It not only connects co-workers, clients and customers but actually builds trust, satisfaction, loyalty and understanding among them.
TelePresence enables businesses to hold meetings with other businesses, no matter the location. Meetings allow people to communicate naturally and effectively as if face to face. It can increase productivity through more interactions and less travel. Less travel will cut company costs, which will save a big amount of money.
It can also be used as a communications strategy by PR professionals to create and maintain relationships with people across the globe.
TelePresence not only benefits businesses but also benefits the medical field. It has recently made a major breakthrough in the health care industry.
Doctors will be able to conduct a surgery happening in California for example, even if they live in Germany. It’s crazy to think a heart transplant or hip replacement could be performed by a doctor that’s not even in the hospital room or even the same state!
Here’s the clip about how TelePresence is being used in health care:
Today’s technologies are becoming more advanced than anyone expected. It’s our job, no matter what profession, to stay on top of the new technologies and use them effectively.
