If you hate traffic, Work Remotely!

August 18th, 2016

Remote work is the definitive solution to stress and time wasting. It really improves the life quality and productivity of your staff, while carbon dioxide emissions get cut down dramatically. Let’s see why R-HUB technology can provide your company with the perfect remote work system.

Tired of getting stuck in the traffic every morning? Try working remotely just for one day a week, and you will experience one of the biggest life quality improvements of forever.

It is not only about traffic. You won’t need to spend hours to find parking in crowded business quarters any longer, for example. No more nasty colleagues, no more poor food quality canteens, no more clumsy coffee machines that turn out muddy liquids with the excuse of supplying you with your necessary daily caffeine dose. Not only will you save a lot of money by cutting down on  fuel and car expenses, but also a big quantity of time. Last but not least, you will give a significant contribution to the environment by decreasing the level of your carbon dioxide emissions.

Once you have considered the advantages of remote work, you will probably ask yourself how to arrange an optimal remote work system in your company. To cut it short, you need to have a technology at hand that give your remote workers the same advantages as office staffs. In particular, it is necessary to implement:

  • A good and safe connection to your company network;
  • Providing remote workers with a phone number that makes working remotely identical to working in a real office;
  • Avoiding that your remote workers might be left out of any conferences.

All this tasks are easily performed by R-HUB’s secure, remote support servers. Silent and small, R-HUB’s remote support servers are really inexpensive (the most expensive unit costs only $ 1495) and really plug-and-play machines: you have just to press on, and they start running. That’s all. They need no maintenance, they upgrade, self-configure and self-initialize themselves automatically. Easy, isn’t it?

We said that remote work can really help environment. How? Consider that one gallon of gasoline produces about 18 pounds of carbon dioxide; now, try to reckon how much carbon dioxide can be saved per year, if your workers stop driving their 20 km a day to reach their offices. You will get the stunning number of over 10.000 pounds a year for each single worker.

In conclusion, remote work is a great way to improve your workers’ life quality by helping the environment at the same time. And the increase in productivity of your staff will largely pay you back your investment.

How An Agenda Helps You Stay On Track During a Web Conference

February 19th, 2015

Many of us had to use an agenda during our elementary and junior high years. If you were like most children, you hated having to record your activities in an agenda every single day. If this sounds like your childhood, it is time to thank your instructors because they helped you to develop a crucial skill early on. Recording notes in an agenda is one of the best practices you can develop as a professional. Allowing you to document important information when you hear/see it, it is a great way to stay organized – especially when web conferencing. Below are a few ways that an agenda can help you to stay on track while you listen/view a web conference.

 

Notes to make things more clear

 

This is an obvious example, but it is one of the most important in this list. Taking notes in your agenda while web conferencing is one of the best ways to avoid any confusion later on. While you are listening to the web conference, write down as many notes as possible to guide you throughout the web conference, and to ultimately help you to perform your job better. It may seem boring and you may feel like you can member everything, but believe us when we say that there are going to be things that slip your mind that you are going to wish that you wrote down.

 

Catch things your mind may not remember tomorrow

 

As stated, we don’t always remember all of the important details when attending a web conference. It is easy for our minds to wander, to lose focus, and to flat-out become bored with web conferencing at large. Thus, it is crucial that you write notes in your agenda – especially on topics that are of the utmost importance. This will ensure that when you leave the web conference, you will be able to remember everything that occurred at the web conference, ensuring that there will not be any mysteries about what you need to remember later on.

 

Schedule important dates so you won’t forget later

 

There will probably be some important dates floating around while web conferencing. If this happens, you need to record every single date that crops up during the conference. Not only will this help you to schedule the rest of your work going forward, but it will ensure that you do not have to experience any ‘crunch time’ whenever you realize that a deadline is due at the last minute. Write important dates in your agenda the moment you hear them during the web conference, and save yourself headache later.

 

Never miss important information again

 

To sum everything up, recording information in your agenda is vital to ensuring that you never miss anything important again. Keep your life organized with the traditional agenda starting today. We guarantee that by doing so, your productivity is going to increase dramatically and your work life will flow better than ever!

How Collaboration Technology Can Help Your Business

October 11th, 2013

Change Management refers to a systematic method for assimilating change within an organization. Change management also assists with transitions for individuals on a personal level, as part of the  overall, changing collective. Change managers, then, are those who oversee and guide this process. They are essential for helping an organization meet its transitional goals. And with the wonders of collaboration technology, change managers can be more effective in their roles, because it’s easier to communicate with various members of an organization, regardless of whether they’re scattered across a six-acre business complex or across the country.

The position of change manager is merely one example of a job that can be enhanced and empowered by collaboration technology. For the balance of this article, we’ll enumerate a few more ways that collaboration technology can make your life easier.

How Collaboration Technology Is Employed
First of all, collaboration tools enable you to change the way documents and media are updated and shared. This ease of use among team members fosters better communication and collaboration. And obviously, for collaboration to be successful, communication within the group must be successful. In order for this to occur, then the various departments in the organization need to be able to work together — conveniently. And convenience is a great strength of collaborative tools. So, thanks to the convenience and ease of frequent interpersonal connections via online collaboration, project details like assignments or problems can be discussed immediately.

Some Components of Collaboration
Collaboration consists of communication, conferencing and coordination.  Communication is the exchange of information by using the following familiar methods: instant messaging, texting, e-mailing or telephoning. Although this component is still interactive, it relies on auditory or written correspondence.

Conferencing builds upon communication by adding a visual enhancement to your cooperative work. Through slides and video, your attendees can also interact visually. The old adage, “A picture paints a thousand words,” still holds true, so employing audiovisual aspects strengthens your collaborative efforts, helping you to ultimately communicate more clearly.

Coordination is basically when the individual team members complete their portions of the project independently and then bring their progress back to the proverbial table to assess the next steps of the overall, shared goal.

The Collaboration Solution for You!
RHUB specializes in delivering a simple and secure solution for online collaboration. In fact, our company’s name — RHUB — is an amalgam of the phrase “real-time collaboration hub.”

RHUB has a 6-in-1 Web conferencing solution that’s actually an appliance, as opposed to a hosted or software solution. Software solutions are costly and aren’t as user friendly at the outset. Hosted solutions are not secure. But the RHUB appliance works from behind your firewall — not outside of it — so it’s sleep-at-night secure. And the RHUB appliance is easy to use, as well.

The RHUB appliance gives you flexibility and value by combining six real-time collaboration methods into one appliance.

2. Remote support — RHUB’s remote support capability gives you remote control of an attendee’s computer, regardless of whether that person is a PC or Mac user. It allows you to remote reboot, and you can remotely log out and log in again as a different user.

3. Audio conferencing —RHUB brings you VoIP-based audio conferencing, as well as free landline audio conferencing services.

4. Video conferencing — RHUB also gives you multi-point, Webcam-based video conferencing. If you use your HD Webcam to present video, RHUB’s system will deliver your video at photo-level quality and even in true color with 100 percent accuracy.

5. Remote Access — RHUB’s appliance also gives you the ability to access your office or home PCs from anywhere, anytime.
