Virtual office and online conference for remote teams
Let's start by looking at what a virtual office means, its advantages, and how to use it. Virtual offices have become widespread in the last three years, mainly thanks to the increasing work of home offices within the framework of covid and other measures. Remote work has its advantages, but of course, also its disadvantages. The disadvantage of working remotely is mainly the coordination of work tasks, where the difficulty naturally increases with the size of the remote team. There are many meetings, and the necessity to plan each meeting separately, including regular meetings, drive away colleagues stuck on calls, and do reports. There is also missing social contact, which is not good for the productivity of the individuals.
On the other hand, nowadays, online conferencing is a standard tool, whether we are talking about MS Teams, Zoom, or Google Meets, thanks to these tools it is possible for users to connect and they see each other on the camera. They can communicate with each other or share. However, the virtual office goes even further, and now we will look at how you can make the work of your teams online more efficient.
What is a virtual office?
Let's try to imagine the environment of classic offices, but we will transfer it to an online and 3D environment. In other words, it is a 3D room where you can have your own table, meeting rooms, you can have a large hall for presentations with customers, a social or game room, but above all, here you can meet your colleague at any time like in a regular office. Still, in the metaverse, you can do even more. It is about more than just replicating the environment.
Users are represented by the avatars here, and you can contact them anytime. Imagine a situation when you want to say hello to colleagues from other teams, so you go to a specific floor or part of the office to meet them. You can also see what is in the office and who is not. It is, therefore, optional to plan meetings. This way, your colleagues can also be available in virtual offices. You can use teleports to navigate through the virtual space quickly. There is also the possibility of doing live events or training meetups. After work, you can have a virtual drink with colleagues, play games, or host a specific rally.
In addition, the size of the virtual environment can be beautifully increased as needed on the go. Adjusting the capacity of virtual offices is much faster and more flexible than with classic renting. In addition, operating costs are negligible compared to traditional offices.
Virtual office advantages:
- You can contact colleagues at any time during the working day
- You can have an unlimited number of meeting rooms here, which can be added or removed
- Users are represented as avatars. At any time, you can see if your colleagues are free and start communicating with them
- It is possible to invite customers here and give them a presentation
- It is possible to organize a live stream and presentations, or internal meetups
- Users have their own diverse avatars that they can configure
- Socialization as an important aspect of working in a remote team
- Organizing regular meetings with colleagues - virtual beer or watching movies
Creation of the office and its modifications
Virtual offices can be purchased basically in a few clicks. You need to register on the platform VIRTULOC.com
where you can choose your virtual space in the virtual office tab. Subsequently, it is possible to configure this space, i.e., adjust colors and insert banners and name tags for colleagues. It is possible to insert current information or product information on the walls.
The advantage is that office content can be edited on the go, just like in physical offices. When you add a picture to the wall or insert a new 3D model, everyone will see it again in the virtual office as soon as they log in. This way, the space can be easily improved for each occasion. Likewise, if you are going to make a presentation for your customer, you can put their logo on the wall and show it to your office.
There are no limits to creativity. The possibility of sliding on a sled or a swing is a matter of course.
