The pandemic has changed a lot of things in the way we live and work. One of those things is the strong presence of video conferencing. Since 2020, video conferencing has seen a 535% increase in daily traffic as over 76% of employees use conferencing at work. The fact of the matter is that while the pandemic definitely drastically increased the number of people video conferencing, as we start to trickle back into office buildings it’s likely here to stay. Nearly 90% of employers surveyed by HR leader SHRM said that their companies would continue to allow people to work from home at least part time with a more flexible hybrid work model. In order to do that successfully, video conferencing will remain a revolutionary form of communication for teams across the globe.

So, what type of equipment do you need to effectively run video conferencing from home or the office? In reality, to have the ultimate professional setup, you’re going to need much more than your laptop with a built-in camera. Two of the brands we carry, Yealink and Konftel, have created a variety of video conferencing kits designed for both home and office that provide all the tools you need to dial in without issue from anywhere in the world. Here are just a few you can invest in today.
