Effective communication is absolutely critical to the success of any business. In this increasingly tech-savvy corporate world, companies of all sizes need to be au fait with the current trends in business communication. Business owners need to know their cloud from their Internet of Things and their interactive voice responses from their phone number verification.
Irish Telecom (http://www.irishtelecom.com/managed-internet.php) created this infographic which explores the top trends in today’s business communications. Concepts such as BYOD (bring your own devices) are becoming increasingly commonplace, while 85% of employees use two or more devices while at work. Other trends for business owners to monitor are the use of web-based tools, with Skype now a core aspect of many workplaces, and the increased usage of virtual meetings, which can be 50 times cheaper to generate a lead than a face-to-face equivalent.
Business owners in today’s working environment cannot afford to be dismissive of modern communication tools, or stubbornly wedged to time-honoured methods. A company which recognizes and keeps pace with the most modern communication trends is far more likely to succeed than one that is stuck in a bygone technological age.
