2016: The year of easy rapport in an increasingly remote friendly world

A new year always brings with it plenty of predictions for the future. We’re especially interested in what 2016 will hold for our ever-evolving workforce. Jarod Lindzon’s recent piece in Fast Company makes the case that it’s all about forward-thinking, fiercely mobile freelance trends moving into the mainstream. We happen to agree.

Lindzon points specifically to more and more companies designed to be entirely mobile, and more and more businesses relying on independent consultants. These increasingly fluid organizational structures—teams made up of both full-timers and freelancers with members scattered around the world—are certainly what we’re seeing from our customers. Here’s how …

Certainly, the future of conferencing doesn’t include what many of us have come to expect from our group calls: confusing sign-ons, garbled voices, static, dropped calls, at least 15 wasted minutes getting everyone on the line followed by having no idea who’s talking… (I could go on, but if you’ve been on a conference call …

Great minds think alike, as Apple embraces distributed workforce with new “Handoff” feature

It happens to most of us every single day: We start one task on our computer only for another task to call us away. It could be tending to a child, running an errand, or hopping into a meeting. The more distributed we get in our professional lives, the more engrained these sorts of disruptions become in our work habits.

It’s for this reason that we created an app at Voxeet that allows for seamless, single-click call transfer between mobiles and computers. Whatever device you need to switch to — laptop, tablet, smartphone — you can do it in real time without …

Conference calls are here to stay

Alexis Madrigal’s recent blog post on NPR.org is titled “Have We Reached The End Of The Line For The Conference Call?” The answer is, quite simply, no. Conference calls are still, by and large, the way teams communicate. They offer a way to connect and collaborate across distance and different types of technology. They let us hear each other’s voices. Conference calls don’t have to die; they just have to work—and sound—much better.
