MIAMI-Office Edge Coral Gables, part of a family of executive office suites in South Florida, is making its facilities even more attractive with new video conferencing capabilities.
Office Edge Coral Gables, which does business in a hot Miami office space submarket, inked a deal with Affinity VideoNet to let its serviced office space users connect with hundreds of video conferencing suites across the nation and around the world.
“Businesspeople from every corner of the globe can ‘meet’ locally in a comfortable local business office setting instead of enduring the expense, time and headaches of travel,” says Robert Ramsden, President of Office Edge Coral Gables. “It’s a natural complement to our virtual office and business services. Video conferencing capabilities have been shown to increase business productivity.”
Office Edge Coral Gables is positioning the service as idea for long-distance depositions, interviews, customer interactions and team meetings. Considering the many law firms headquartered in Coral Gables, it seems Office Edge has a built in audience.
In a survey of 1,000 office and mobile employees, Damova found 63 percent of respondents are more inclined to complete a task faster when meeting someone face-to-face in a video conference. “And because people remember 80% of what they see and only a fraction of what they hear,” Ramsden says, “video conferencing boosts attendees’ abilities to recall more of what is shared during a live videoconference session.”
Office Edge Coral Gables’ new option features a 50-inch plasma screen and professional Polycom equipment with IP connectivity.
“Our executive and legal clients have very specific requirements for their video conferences,” says Leah Weston, Director of Affiliate Relations at Affinity. “The Office Edge team’s professionalism, attention to detail and friendliness serve up the perfect recipe for client satisfaction.”
