Canadian firm uses mobile collaboration for a morning ‘huddle’

Large, on-premise conferencing solutions can be useful for well-resourced companies with in-house IT teams, but companies without dedicated IT staff need something smaller and simpler. Cloud-based collaboration systems can help bridge this gap.

Next week, San Francisco-based Voxeet launches the fourth iteration of its mobile and desktop-based audio conferencing system, designed to give companies an audio conferencing and collaboration system tailored to include mobile users.

Dustin Jordan, sales director at Canadian power equipment rental firm Trinity Power Tools, said the company has been using the system to pull around ten of its staffers into a daily audio ‘huddle.’

“Every single one of our …

Voxeet Brings 3D Surround Sound to the Mobile Workforce

One big reason that we maintain home theaters instead of watching everything on mobile devices is sound quality. Getting big, room-filling sound—particularly 3D surround sound—tends to be a bit more than a typical smartphone can handle. That may not be the case much longer based on a new development from Voxeet, which brings 3D surround sound to a mobile workforce collaboration tool.

Voxeet is perhaps better known for its TrueVoice technology, a system which provides 3D surround sound to a variety of devices. This same technology can also be used to make a conference call sound less like a standard phone …

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 …

The New Conference Room is Here

The New Conference Room is Here

According to a recent ruling from the European Court of Justice, the time workers spend traveling to their first and from their last meetings of the day counts as time spent working—and must be compensated accordingly. The ruling only applies to workers in the EU without a fixed office, but in our increasingly distributed world, those workers number in the millions. And the time they spend on the road just got a lot more expensive.

Now more than ever, employers need to figure out how to make remote meetings work, finding new ways to trim or …
