Resourcery Plc., a leading system integrator in Nigeria in partnership with Cisco Systems International is organising a one day business seminar tagged “Video as tool for corporate communication and productivity”.
The event is aimed at showcasing development in both one-way and two-way video solution and how well this can be employed within the corporate arena for improved business benefits.
The event is targeted at key decision makers in marketing, corporate communication and human resource departments of medium to large organizations in Nigeria. This was disclosed at a media parley which took place at the corporate head office of Resourcery recently.
Speaking from Abuja via video, Mr. Olugbenga Adanlawo, business solution manager (Voice and Video Solution) for Resourcery noted that the global use of video to aid productivity and communication has been on the ascendancy within the corporate environment for some time now and the Nigeria business environment is beginning to enter that developmental phase as well.
This he said necessitated the need to bring together the people who may be the biggest users of the video solution in large to medium scale organizations.
Adanlawo said; “This business session provides an important opportunity for our invited guest to see the practical demonstration of howVideo solution can be deployed as an effective Corporate Communications and Human Resource management tool. It would also provide a real life in-sight into how video can be a cost saving innovation as well as an efficient in-person experience for face-to-face meetings.”
He however noted that; “the real benefit is staff productivity improvement.” This he illustrated by saying; “for instance, instead of an employee spending an entire work day travelling to and from Abuja/Port Harcourt for a two-hour meeting, the employee can have a productive ‘face to face’ meetings with the person in Abuja or Port-Harcourt within the confines of her office in Lagos. Which means valuable travel time (which actually translates to work time) is saved and employee productivity level increases. This is only achievable if video solution is deployed by the employee’s organization.”
Also speaking on the importance of the event to invited guest, Mrs. Angela Chike-Dike, senior manager (Business Development) noted that Hiring processes can be very lengthy and costly, especially when candidates are located in other cities or when multiple people are involved in the interview process.
But organizations with video conferencing systems in their offices can reduce expenses and time by bringing candidates into the nearest facility and allowing interviews to be conducted both in person and over video.
Such interview session she noted can also be recorded thereby enabling persons unable to bge part of the live interview process to see and evaluate candidates over video.
She noted that; “Video conferencing can be used to achieve significant benefits beyond increased productivity and reduced costs. Other important benefits are the reduced downtime and increased quality of life for travelling personnel as well as reduced hiring cycles for key employees.”
Chike-Dike then summed it by saying; “Even local manufacturing organizations can use video conferencing and content sharing to verify product quality, make revisions, and ensure accuracy throughout the supply chain. All these can be achieved while the competition is left behind to rely on next-day delivery of services.”
