I love technology and we are fortunate to live in a time when most of us are experiencing the great evolution of technology. For example, we have cars that are on our streets driving alone. We have incredible advances in medicine and we have eradicated disease. And, as the United States moves from government to public-private partnerships, I am confident that we will see incredible achievements in the space industry as humanity seeks to create a society that thrives beyond the limits of Earth. The success of the SpaceXin 2017 reusable rocket is a step in the right direction. However, technology can also be simple and affect our daily lives and our businesses.
In my company, one of the technologies that has fundamentally changed the way my team, client and our suppliers relate to each other and work is Zoom. Zoom is one of the leading video conferencing and web conferencing platforms on the market.
I love technology because my team is spread across the US and even across Europe. Every week we connect to scheduled or unscheduled Zoom meetings in our conference room, which we now call the Zoom Room. People can join us anytime from anywhere they have Internet access using their desktop computers, tablets, or smartphones.
After using Zoom for a couple of months, we went beyond one-touch conferencing, which is compatible with OWL Lab’s 360-degree camera and microphone. What does that mean? It means that attending one of our video conferences is a much more dynamic experience.
Instead of seeing a flat gaze in the conference room, which is not only boring but can cause people outside the room Zoom to miss out on subtle body language or even talking points, OWL Lab’s camera and microphone they follow the speaker. That means the moment someone starts speaking, the camera and microphone immediately rotate and focus on that person, making the discussion that much more lively and dynamic. If you want to see what we’re doing and how it works, take a look at the OWL Labs experience.
What people are saying
Our team loves technology and everyone is delighted to participate in a conference call because it is the best alternative to having people in the same room. Additionally, technology is regularly used for screen sharing and productivity has increased exponentially.
However, as an entrepreneur and businessman, one of the best accolades we have received comes from our clients and partners. In short, they have been impressed and we always get new feedback on how “progressive”, “resourceful” and “practical” we are in our use of technology.
I firmly believe that you have to take advantage of all the resources at your disposal and, in the modern age, that includes technology. One of the best things you can do for yourself and your business is embrace technology, even something as simple as the platforms you use for video conferencing.
