Originally, meetings were held with clients, partners, and collaborators in person to establish closer contact and improve communication between the two parties. This has always been done as there were no alternative methods that were as effective as face-to-face contact, with telephone meetings being a less attractive option, used as a last resort because of the disadvantages involved.
However, times have changed and technological evolution has eradicated these drawbacks. In 3DforScience we consider the globalization as a reality that allows us to connect people in a huge network through tools, which despite being insufficient at the beginning, currently allows us to mimic the contact we could have in a face to face thousands of kilometers away. To achieve this objective, we put all our efforts into providing services to improve your communication in order to achieve the goals that companies set.
First appeared applications like Skype to have long calls from the computer. Then, through the Cam, you could make video conferences to see the face of the person you are talking to and improve communication. Later the appearance of other applications such as zoom or Uberconference allowed us to share our screens to show our customers or partners some aspects that need to be explained visually.
So, after having made enormous progress in interpersonal communication technologies. How can this help business?
The answer is straightforward. As we have mentioned before, one of the bases of good communication in a business meeting is the face to face contact to transmit a clearer message, which is why whenever you want to propose to a client, this is the first option, because we believe it is the best way to convince, explain or sell an idea or product.
However, things do not always turn out the way you want, because there are always unforeseen events. Calendars with hardly any free space to meet and the distance between clients or partners make it impossible to hold a physical meeting so virtual alternatives are chosen as the main resource to hold virtual business meetings.
The future of meetings goes through Virtual and augmented reality
Then the virtual meeting becomes the best alternative. Through new technologies, we can establish meetings from anywhere in the world at any time and in any place as long as there is an internet connection, which in recent times in the western world can be found almost anywhere. This allows us to hold meetings, present our products and show our partners the potential of our company from our office or our home, with clients located in any part of the world.
On the other hand, the impact of new technologies on virtual business meetings must be taken into account. Virtual reality and augmented reality can play a crucial role in conveying our message more clearly and accurately, generating a greater impact on our stakeholders and exponentially increasing our success.
This means that it not only allows us to optimize distances but also time. By being able to hold more meetings because there are no physical problems, our message will be able to reach more people and therefore our projects will be more successful.
Therefore, virtual business meetings are a winning choice over all other conventional methods and in 3DforScience understand and we try to help you. Although it may come as a bit of a shock at first, new technologies will inevitably end up becoming more and more a part of our lives, reaching out to the business world and improving people’s quality of life.
