New-age collaborative technology is at the core of stronger business relations and improves turnaround for enterprises by minimising wastage of time and human resources during inefficient meetings. Indian meeting rooms and professionals are more adaptive to disruptive technology compared to the global scenario according to “The Future of Meetings” white paper launched by Barco ClickShare, in association with independent research agency Savanta which shows that 83% of Indian employees carry at least two devices into the meeting room as against 72% globally. The research found that the most ardent users of technology, in India and globally, include Baby Boomers and Millennials and laptop is the most common device in use.
Commenting on the findings of the research, Rajiv Bhalla, Managing Director, Barco Electronic Systems Pvt. Ltd said, “The workplace of today has undergone a revolution aided by new age technologies and it continues to evolve at a faster pace. At Barco India, we believe that better meetings mean better business, across domains. Collaborations function seamlessly through visual assistance and that is where Barco’s visual collaboration solutions for meeting rooms, such as ClickShare and wePresent step in, resulting in better handling of operations and improved return on investment for the enterprises.”
Collaborative technology boosts productivity by cutting out unnecessary meetings and attendees while enhancing the quality of the interaction through remote connectivity and faster turnaround time. Meetings today are better than they were five years ago, with technology at the heart of this transformation. Meeting attendees are confident about using digital technologies and overwhelmingly prefer meetings that use technology. The working population prefers meetings that are short, with few people in them. Meetings are better when visual solutions such as large built-in displays, screen sharing and video are key drivers of engagement.
Over 90% of the participants in the survey want to see voice recognition in meetings within the next two years. They are also looking forward to video filters, hand-gesture control, AR, VR and bots to be commonplace in meetings within the next three years. This will improve remote collaboration, enable more efficient meeting management, and increase engagement,
