When you see the words “video conference,” you probably think of a virtual meeting that shares a certain formality with its in-person counterpart. A meeting is scheduled. The meeting’s date and time are entered into a calendar. At the designated date and time, you click on a link and enter the virtual room for the scheduled conference. In short, the video conferencing protocol pretty much matches the rigmarole we are all familiar with from the days of meeting in actual rooms.
Our vast inventory of room and mobile solutions come equipped with various features that make scheduling and joining such conferences super simple. That’s one of the great things about video conferencing as we know it: it makes a familiar feature of the workplace more convenient and expedient than it was before.
But we live in a world where people are becoming accustomed to using video the same way we used to use the phone. Want to talk to someone? You’re just as likely to use something like FaceTime as you are to make a good old-fashioned phone call.
This is all to say that employees of the 21st century expect a video solution that is just as accessible and pliable as the video apps they use on their personal phones and mobile devices. The formal procedures required to arrange a video conference are going to seem cumbersome to someone who wants to quickly and immediately meet with an office mate or client or faraway colleague.
