Is video conferencing at your organization up in the air and all over the place? Maybe some employees love to hop on impromptu video calls with just about anyone from anywhere—even when they’re just down the hall. On the other hand, some resist turning on the camera or using video conferencing at all. You may see different departments favoring different solutions. If there is no consistent user experience and video conferencing has become a big hassle for your IT department, you’ll want to make some changes.
You know you want to provide an easy, standardized experience in your meeting rooms, small or large. But what do you do when executives don’t make video conferencing a priority, don’t understand the benefits, and don’t want to set aside budget to solve your organizations collaboration issues?
Start by gathering user and stakeholder feedback, researching and narrowing down your options, and then presenting the information to those who will make the final decision. State your case by beginning with the “why” behind the push for video conferencing.
You already know why an easy-to-use, standardized video conferencing solutions makes sense, but it’s important to let decision makers in on the long-term, big-picture benefits.
Let stakeholders know you’ve done your homework, and ask those who already support video conferencing to help others get on board.

If you’re looking for ways to implement video collaboration in small meeting rooms, consider tools like the Crestron Mercury or the Polycom Trio. Both feature webcams and content sharing capabilities. Check out “A Standardized Huddle Space Catalog and Guide“
