Will The Hologram Business Meetings Be Real?
Technology has recently changed the habits of the business world. Teleconference and video conference after the conference will gather virtual reality and hologram technology ‘virtual’ managers at the same table in the near future
In business, time is more important than cash. The time on the road, the costs and face-to-face meeting habits for many different reasons are starting to change. The transformation process, which begins with teleconference, continues with video conferencing. In the near future, virtual reality seems to be a trend for the business world after the entertainment world. In the medium term, the meetings will be held with hologram technology, just like in science fiction films. Employees will communicate on the road as if they were in the same room, from wasting time and cash. Can Ilkhan, CEO of Bircorn, which has been the distributor of many technology brands in Turkey since 1972 and also has its own brands in the sector, gives tips on the future of communication in the business world.
What does generation Y want? Generation Y business people do not want to participate in meetings by making long trips Ilkhan, generally prefers video conferencing systems, he says. This gives managers time and cost savings while giving them more time to their social lives. Video conference solutions call center and office ears, IP phones to VoIP communication products offer a lot of technology tell-yen Ilkhan, new technologies and SMEs’ communication costs are also reduced emphasizes. Ilkhan believes that hologram technology has not yet reached the point where it will be fully available to the end user, and says that for now, the most popular technologies are video conferencing and virtual reality. Virtual reality/augmented reality is expected to develop rapidly in the professional world as in the gaming world. In Turkey, meeting in a meeting room is still seen as a priority form of communication. However, with heavy traffic and business pace, it is becoming increasingly difficult to drive this habit.
Half of the shift passes on the road, especially for a meeting in Istanbul, an average of one hour is on the road. Return or next
a similar time is needed for the meeting. This means that someone who has to have three meetings a day spends at least three hours a day on the road. So almost half of the shift is on the road or at the meeting. While unanswered emails and jobs requiring follow-up are piling up, employee motivation is also declining. Research suggests face-to-face communication for initial interviews, while subsequent meetings show that video conferencing is more efficient.
Meeting hours are shortening Can Ilkhan explains the impact of the technologies used on meeting hours as follows: “Our observations are that meeting hours are positively shortened and meetings are more efficient. Teams with the chance to come together more often can evaluate a topic or project with topic-oriented and short meetings when they need them instead of having long and inefficient meetings.”
