<p><strong>Shawnee, Kan.</strong><br />May and June are two of the busiest months for corporate training in the United States, according to Novations Group. With training season on the horizon, professional trainers, meeting planners and HR professionals need the necessary tools for cost-effective and valuable training sessions.<br /> <br />Around the world, businesses have embraced the flexibility and convenience of videoconferencing. Professionals looking to make the most of training season are also utilizing videoconferencing as a cost-effective communication strategy to reach more people at once. This inherently green solution offers many useful benefits to the training field. <br /> <br />&ldquo;Videoconferencing is an ideal solution for training several individuals at once without losing the face-to-face connection needed for an effective training session,&rdquo; said Tray Vedock, president of SKC, a communication solutions provider located in Shawnee. <br /> <br />With videoconferencing, HR departments and training professionals can:<br /><br />&bull; <strong>Reduce expenses.</strong> Videoconferencing cuts out travel costs associated with training sessions. HR departments can conduct training sessions with many employees in multiple locations at the same time. This cuts down on food, airfare and hotel charges that often pile up, especially when several employees are involved. <br />&bull; <strong>Save time.</strong> Reducing meeting locations leads to major time savings. Training professionals can book more jobs into tighter timeframes due to decreased travel downtime. By sharing training opportunities with several locations at once, meeting planners and HR professionals will enjoy missing the scheduling nightmare of coordinating several different meetings. <br />&bull; <strong>Go green. </strong>For many businesses, small adjustments offer the best way to move toward environmental friendliness. Videoconferencing enables businesses to reduce their carbon footprints. With fewer workers on the road and in the air, less carbon dioxide enters the atmosphere each day.<br /><br />For those looking to make the jump to videoconferencing, a high definition (HD) solution provides the closest alternative to a face-to-face meeting. HD videoconferencing allows for clearer and more effective communication, including:<br /><br />&bull; <strong>Higher quality video resolution. </strong>Research shows 55 percent of communications takes place through body language. With HD resolution, participants have a clearer image, allowing them to see subtleties of facial expressions and body movements, making conversations more lifelike.<br />&bull; <strong>Real-time transmissions. </strong>HD videoconferencing is an interactive process that transmits audio and visual data in real-time, back and forth across a network. This real-time response means there is no lag time in conversations. <br />&bull; <strong>Superior audio synchronization.</strong> Accurate audio synchronization with minimal processing delays allows the conversation to flow easily, with fewer incidents of participants talking over each other. <br />&bull; <strong>Clearer documentation transfers. </strong>Videoconference sessions often rely on additional documents and materials, such as PowerPoint slides, photographs, charts or other training tools. With an HD platform, these documents are transmitted and viewed with exceptional clarity, leaving no room for confusion about their content. <br /><br />&ldquo;For the corporate training field, HD videoconferencing is simply the best and most effective tool,&rdquo; says Vedock. &ldquo;Trainers can feel more confident their message is being delivered clearly, without the technology getting in the way.&rdquo;<br /></p>
