A great article from the InterCall blog on mobile conferencing.
As the workplace has changed thanks to new conferencing and collaboration tools, so has the way employees communicate with their co-workers and clients. Being at work doesn’t necessarily mean being at the office anymore. The same can now be said for attending work meetings. Since nearly every employee has access to a smartphone or tablet, meetings can be taken from home, the beach, an airport—pretty much anywhere employees find themselves.
As the world’s largest conferencing and collaboration provider, InterCall wanted to see just how big this trend has become. We dug into our mobile traffic data to view recent trends and surveyed more than 500 outside, full-time employees to discover their conferencing habits. What we found was that mobile conferencing is certainly a growing trend and employees are taking full advantage of workplace mobility, sometimes in very unique places.
