Are you ready for a video first generation?
They are a bit complex. The young ones. They are born into a world of instant communication. However, they are still a bit stressed over using new technology at the office. At the same time, they are a video first generation. If it isn’t Skype, it is FaceTime or the video calling function in Facebook’s Messenger or Snapchat. What happens when they walk into your office?
A not so wild guess is that when the younger workforce enters they want to continue to do video calls. They surely want to collaborate and they dislike unnecessary traveling, due to the environmental aspects. (Of course, that goes for a lot of the older workforce as well.)
We need human interaction. We often need to get a face to the voice.
Make a call?
If you, like the video first generation, are used to simply pushing a button on your mobile phone to get a face to the voice of your friend, you want to do that in the office as well. That was our mission when we developed our video solutions. Only one cable to connect to your PC, hit the button in your collaboration app and your video call is up and running. When the video -first generation transforms the way we "make a call", we have to keep up.
We hear you
As we at Konftel, after 30 years of a voice only agenda, now enter the video space, we do it with a vast amount of experience from conference rooms around the world. We know all the upsides and downsides and therefore can address them directly. And we do it knowing that there is a video first generation on their way into the office today. A generation that still needs the sound to be perfect, otherwise they can’t hear the people they want to see. However, first and foremost they want devices that just work and don’t mess up their day. And hey, don’t we all?
82% will be video
In addition to the video first generations rising expectations of their workplace, Cisco is forecasting that IP video traffic will be 82% of all consumer internet traffic by 2021, up from 73 percent in 2016*. At the same time only 4% of conference rooms are equipped for video conferencing today, states a Frost & Sullivan report on Video Conferencing in Huddle Rooms**.
With this insight in mind, it starts to make sense to invest in Get a Face to the Voice- equipment. Compare our video solutions and see what suits your office. Today and tomorrow.
