Reclaiming Lost Time

If you’ve ever found a $10 or $20 bill in a seldom-used coat pocket, you know it’s a nice surprise.  You probably thought the money had been spent or lost – and now you have it back.


I had a similar experience with one of our IT developers not long ago.  We needed to discuss changes to an application, so as usual I scheduled the call using GENBAND’s Unified Conferencing & Collaboration tools.  While on the call I showed him what another IT developer had created and what items required  modification.  By sharing my screen in real-time and utilizing a web cam video he could see exactly what needed to be changed.  This alleviated confusion, time consuming mock-ups and the typical back-and-forth review process.      


We had originally scheduled a 30 minute conference call, but thanks to GENBAND A2 Unified Conferencing & Collaboration, our call was completed in less than 10 minutes.  So we both got back 20 minutes on a hectic Monday.  In fact, I used the time to write this article and was eventually able to get more done than I had originally planned for the entire day!


If you are like me, conference calls can take up the majority of most working days.  Using collaborative and video-enabled unified communications tools from GENBAND can significantly reduce the amount of time you spend on calls.  Being more productive than you anticipated and reclaiming lost time is like finding money unexpectedly - always a nice surprise.
