Incorporating content from laptops/computers, Smartboards, DVD Players or document cameras that can be concurrently viewed by all parties enables instant decisions and significantly increased productivity.
3. Employment Interviews
The capability of interviewing worldwide is a significant benefit. The exceptional high definition quality provides the ability to gauge the interviewee’s personality and demeanor, and can be used for first round short-listing through to final selection.
