What Are You Afraid Of?
January 4, 2011 @ 02:57 PM | By Sarah Murphy

The thing I’m most afraid of is the dark. Yes, there I said it. All grown up and still afraid of the dark. A lot of people will say their biggest fear is public speaking, even if they aren’t in the room with their audience!

In a recent survey of video conferencing usage, 39% of respondents said they don’t use video conferencing because of concerns about their appearance and another 10% avoid it because it feels like public speaking. Yet with all this worry, a significant percentage of respondents “believe they are more likely to take action following a conversation in a video conference than after receiving an email containing the same instructions or information.”

So how can InterCall Video Conferencing help ease these fears and strengthen your conversations? There are a lot of options and factors to consider when diving into the world of video conferencing. With that in mind, we take the time to consult with customers to find out what their needs are for video conferencing.

  • Who do they conference with on a daily, weekly, monthly basis?
  • What type of video system would best meet their requirements? Desktop, mobile, telepresence?
  • What type of network is in place to ensure quality of service?

Next we make it easy to schedule video conferences online through our web-based scheduling system. And lastly, our expert video network operations center team can take on the day-to-day to management of video endpoints and bridging for simple point-to-point and multipoint conferences.

You could say that InterCall acts like a security blanket or the proverbial 'naked audience' that people tell you to imagine so you are less nervous when speaking in public. Regardless, when it comes to video conferencing, you can feel better knowing all you have to do is walk in the room and we’ll do the rest. So what are you afraid of?
