Is Your Meeting Technology Costing You?

“Time is money.”- Benjamin Franklin

Businesses are always aware of hard costs associated with anything from supplies to payroll. However, when it comes to meetings, the soft costs associated with sub-par technology can really become a drain on resources.

Whether dialing into a meeting or sharing our own presentation, we have all experienced what can happen when technology doesn’t play its part. Momentum can often come to a halt. Ineffective communication can create gaps. Not to mention, technology can waste our time. In fact, it is estimated by Industry Week that meetings waste about $37 BILLION each year.

One fifth of meetings (20%) run late due to meeting room technology.

Technology should work FOR you, rather than against you. It should be user-friendly, consistent, and integrated. When asked, 89% of people say technology does make meetings easier. When it doesn’t, our team steps in. Our goal at Cory’s Audio Visual is to make sure your message is heard. Basically, it is our job to see that your time isn’t wasted by technology.
