Why Effective Organizations Already Use Video Recording for Meetings
Leading organizations already understand the added value of recording meetings and have made them part of a productivity and efficiency solution:
- Gathering staff together for meetings is difficult and just a single late participant can throw behind a dozen or more schedules. Organizational productivity is held hostage by the logistics required to gather everyone needed to participate.
- Meetings generate important, valuable information that persists indefinitely, but can only be accessed by the participants, particularly those who took careful notes. That content and value cannot be effectively unlocked or shared outside of the meeting.
Resolving those challenges is the key to improving efficiency, boosting performance, and creating value… and REC.VC does all of them, and more!
Stream & Record Video Meetings and More
The only factors that have prevented more widespread use of meeting recordings are simplicity and convenience: most organizations don’t have access to the resources or technical expertise required to make recording easy and accessible. REC.VC is the agile and affordable solution that empowers any organization to stream, record, and share, from anywhere and any online connected device.
REC.VC is an incredible platform to help efficiently manage meetings and conferences. Participants don’t need to wait for stragglers: anyone who is late can review the recording of missed material, without impacting other schedules.
