Marketing Virtual Rooms can be hard to explain, what do they do?

The simplest explanation we have found is :"face to face meetings from any device or platform"

Why does that work?

It crosses the Technical and Business mindset enabling both to understand what your offering.

The deeper shift is the move from 1D Audio conferencing or 2D web conferencing and screen sharing to 3D face to face meetings but using technology.     

Background 1D 2D and 3D CommunicationClose Global - 1D to 3D Communication

1D is hearing only communication typically audio conferencing or email where the brain is processing words not going to the short term memory with obvious shortcomings.

2D is a huge Leap Forward and employees not just hearing the visualisation of images images that go into the long-term memory with huge benefits those benefits I'm not just the ability to recall the image from your long-term memory but also to comprehend it research has has has shown 60000 times faster than you do the written word.

3D employees 2D plus the ability to see body language body language has been programmed to contribute up to 55% of a meetings message this quite simply explained while some meetings have just got to be face to face they're too important for either 1D or 2D communication.

When you extend Microsoft face to face communication to what we call 4D any device and then 5D any platform, the business benefits become tangible.

Close Global - Wainhouse Charts Benefits

Wainhouse Research conducted a study of 4000 users of Visual communication to establish the benefits that those users derived from using 3D visual communication.

In today's world where companies have to disrupt before their markets are disrupted by competitors, gaining a competitive communication edge, when they invest in 3D-5D communication, is vital.

Especially when that is shown to deliver not just higher productivity, but faster input into decisions and Better Business Decisions.

Whilst that's the background communication needs to be simple, fixing the communication silos can be visual.
