What's the Future of Video Conferencing for Business | From BYOD to BYOM
BYOM (Bring Your Own Meeting) is a relatively new term that builds upon the foundations of BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) in that employees can use the tools they are comfortable and familiar with.

Missing cable adapters, spotty sound, and room equipment limitations are the bane of modern meetings. Bring your own meeting (BYOM) technology eliminates the all-too-common pain points of traditional meeting spaces for efficient and collaborative meetings.

This means that businesses are now able to use their own software, hardware, and networks to make video conferencing more efficient, cost-effective, and secure. BYOM can be used for anything from internal meetings to customer-facing interactions, and it can be used across multiple platforms, including web, desktop, and mobile.

Thanks to the rise of cloud computing, businesses are now able to access video conferencing capabilities quickly and cost-effectively. This means that businesses of all sizes are now able to benefit from the advantages of video conferencing without having to invest in expensive hardware and software.
