I love technology and we are fortunate to live in a time where most of us are witnessing the great evolution of technology. For example, we have cars that roam our streets and drive themselves. We have made incredible advances in medicine and eradicated disease. And as the US shifts from government to public-private partnerships, I’m sure we’ll see incredible achievements in the space industry as humanity strives to create a society that thrives beyond the confines of the earth. The success of SpaceX’s reusable rocket in 2017 is a step in the right direction. However, technology can also be simple and affect our daily life and business.
In my company, Zoom is one of the technologies that has fundamentally changed the way my team, my customer and our suppliers interact and work with each other. Zoom is one of the best video and web conferencing platforms out there.
I love the technology because my team is spread across the US and even Europe. Every single week we go online with scheduled or unscheduled Zoom meetings in our conference room, which we now call the Zoom Room. People can log in to us at any time from anywhere they have internet access using their desktops, tablets or smartphones.
After using Zoom for a few months, we took it a step further for one-touch conferencing powered by the OWL Lab 360-degree camera and microphone. What does that mean? This means attending one of our video conferences is a much more dynamic experience.
Instead of seeing a flat view of the conference room, which is not only boring but can also cause people outside the zoom room to miss subtle body language or even discussion points, the OWL Lab camera and microphone follows the speaker. This means that the moment someone starts speaking, the camera and microphone will immediately rotate and focus on that person, making the discussion much livelier and more dynamic. If you want to see what we do and how it works, take a look at the OWL Labs experience.
what do people say
Our team loves technology and everyone enjoys a conference call because having people actually in the same room is the next best thing. In addition, the technology is regularly used for screen sharing and productivity has increased exponentially.
However, as an entrepreneur and businessman, we receive one of the nicest compliments from our customers and partners. Quite simply, they loved it, and we keep getting new comments about how “predictive,” “ingenious,” and “handy” we are at using technology.
I am a firm believer that you must use all the resources at your disposal and in the modern era that includes technology. One of the best things you can do for yourself and your business is to embrace technology, even something as simple as the platforms you use for video conferencing.
