It’s that time of year again to hang the stockings on your cubicle wall, set up your 3 ft. faux Christmas tree and deck the office with boughs of holly. It’s also time to begin putting together a holiday wish list so that when FedEx Santa walks through the doors on Monday morning, you get every communications solution you need for an efficient 2014.
As 2013 winds down—the year that’s been filled with countless conference calls—buckle yourself in tightly as we explore three items that we suspect will pop up on conference call holiday wish lists across the country:
- A comfortable chair: Sometimes conference calls seem to last forever and if you’re not comfortable, all you’ll be able to pay attention to is the agony in your lower back. Look for something comfortable, but not something too comfortable so that you slouch and slack off or worse yet, doze.
- A reliable mute button: With a steady mute button that you feel comfortable using, you don’t have to worry about cracking a joke to whoever is nearby when someone on the line says something deserving. You also don’t have to worry about people hearing you cough or eat your lunch.
- A complete call visibility solution: This would help you pay more attention to the content being discussed rather than wondering who in the world is actually talking, or worrying about page of the presentation they are on. Such a feature would help a caller focus more on the business that needs to get done.
What do you think? Will any of these make your list? What else would you add?
