Mobile conferencing and collaboration solutions are essential tools for employees on the move, and companies intent on implementing a robust and flexible unified communication solution should make mobility a high priority. But even though smart phones and tablets give people the freedom to take their work anywhere they want, most employees will be spending most of their time working on laptops and PCs. And so regardless of where they are--at the office, at home, in a hotel room, plugged into coffee shop wi-fi, on an airplane--the odds are good they’ll need access to a reliable and feature-rich desktop solution.
Laptops and PCs will lose any contest of convenience to smart phones and tablets. That’s not in doubt. But as far as image quality, screen size and storage capacity go, those mobile devices will lose out to desktop solutions nearly every time.
You’ll want that crystal clear image quality if you’re meeting with an important client. You’ll need that screen size if you’re on a group video call. And have you tried multitasking while video conferencing with a mobile phone? It’s difficult.
Of course it’s nice having a mobile option, but desktop solutions simply offer a more dynamic and versatile user experience. The Cisco TelePresence EX90, for instance, features a full high-def 24-inch screen that can be used both as a PC monitor and a video conferencing system.
You don’t have to invest in a fancy new screen to have a top notch desktop conferencing experience, though. The Starleaf PT Mini 3020 can transform your existing desktops into video collaboration hubs with nothing more complicated than a couple USB connections. Within minutes, you can be up and running and ready to conference with anyone on any device.
Another excellent desktop option is the Prime Call Cloud UC , a cloud-based conferencing solution that anyone can access on any browser. Smart phones and tablets are invited, but with whiteboard, blackboard and annotation features, not to mention content-sharing, Prime Call Cloud UC works anytime, anywhere.
Again, this isn’t to say you should skimp on mobile and room solutions. Those realms need tending to as well. But the core of your company is likely composed of people working at desks, on PCs and laptops. Give them the tools they need.
