Shielding privacy is a value that the Swiss have long been known for in the world economy.

Still, there are differences worthy of being mentioned and taken into account when designing a successful interview process.
Unlike past times, the salesperson nowadays does not have the task of informing the customer. In fact, the customer can oftentimes complete the job of getting informed on their own. For example, our customers inform themselves about Veeting online but often they still call and want a live presentation.
By using branded video conferencing rooms, you create a personalised environment that will make you and your customers feel more at ease and further eliminate the barriers associated with physical distance. Of course, ease of use remains a top priority. Your customers should be able to access the meeting with a single click, without installing any extra software and with the minimum amount of hassle involved.

One of the most exciting things about developing a communication platform like ours is seeing the innovative ways people put it to use in improving their lives. We had the opportunity to interview a young woman in the United States recently about her experience using Veeting Rooms technology to tutor a student overseas.

One of CEOs’ toughest challenge is to manage and effectively communicate with all the different stakeholders, from customers, employees and press to investors, partners and board members. Regardless of being in or out of the office, CEOs have to always be available for all those who need them. How can they achieve that with the smallest possible amount of hassle involved while also maintaining productivity levels high?

Change doesn’t always lead to progress but there can be no progress without change. This being said, it’s always challenging for leaders to get everyone within the company to accept and embrace change as an opportunity to grow and, ultimately, evolve.

From adapting to technological advances and economic changes, to retaining customers, recruiting top talent, and finding ways of growing their business, CEOs have a lot of issues to handle.

The disruption of the communication market happens right now. Whereas until now we had one communication tool for everything, soon we can communicate in every tool.
Last week I have written about how my means of communication in business has changed over time and how I can’t think of doing business without web conferencing nowadays.<br/><br/>This week I want to take the opportunity to look back in time and see how distance communication has evolved over time, from smoke signals to Veeting Rooms.

Even in today’s increasingly transparent society, good communication in both personal and business transactions is predicated on the expectation of privacy. Attorney/client privilege and physician/patient confidentiality are two of the best known examples of protected communication. But in the broader arena of commerce, interactions as varied as financial consultations, contract negotiations, and recruitment efforts take place under the umbrella of confidentiality for financial and ethical reasons.
In the early days of business software development, one of the prime benefits of having an enterprise-class budget was the ability to purchase software for on-premise use. Large companies could readily outspend and outclass smaller competitors. However, the advent of inexpensive technology along with web-based delivery models has radically changed the balance of power. Large companies with thousands of employees are now hard-pressed to justify the excessive cost per-person of managing software in-house.
