Technology is crucial to how we work in the modern world. That’s why companies in the private sector invest huge amounts of money into advanced technologies and innovative audiovisual (AV) solutions to ensure their business continues to grow.
In the public sector, however, updating technology isn’t as easy. While there is strong demand for increased efficiency, operational excellence and transparency for governmental agencies, these organizations are not competition-driven and it can be hard to justify the cost of new technology amidst financial constraints.
Whether your government agency is broadcasting a presentation to the community, videoconferencing, recording a deposition or promoting collaboration among workers, it’s likely you rely on audiovisual technologies to communicate.
By upgrading your existing AV technology, your government agency will be able to yield tangible, reliable and consistent results. Here are five benefits you could realize from a world-class AV solution:
1 - Improve collaboration
Whether it is local government leaders working across public, private and administrative boundaries to work with councils and business leaders to improve the lives of those in their communities, or if its the employees within a government office connecting with each other in more efficient ways - collaboration is vital in government.
On a large scale, collaboration means government leaders can draw on the full range of assets within their city, as well as outside, to increase the opportunities available to them for development within the area.
On a smaller scale, collaboration technology allows employees to connect with each other more efficiently. The result of the increased collaboration is more engaged employees, higher staff retention rates, the flow of innovative ideas and, ultimately, the production of better work from employees.
2 - Better connect with citizens
Government agencies must communicate with their community, whether that involves providing them with important information, public service announcements or information about future developments.
Advanced AV solutions can help here. The use of interactive digital signage and digital message boards will provide easy access to information, while video conferencing technologies can connect citizens to your agency by streaming public forums such as town hall meetings.
3 - Update security
According to data collated by Wikipedia, it is estimated that the average cost of a data breach will be over $150 million by 2020, with the global annual cost forecast to be $2.1 trillion. It is also estimated that in the first half of 2018 alone, about 4.5 billion records were exposed as a result of data breaches.
That’s why many government agencies are modernizing their IT infrastructure to improve privacy. Advanced AV solutions can help you do just that.
Innovative audiovisual solutions have improved access controls, meaning the data and high-value assets that you store on file are far better protected than they would be with your outdated technology.
4 - Increased productivity
Not only will you significantly enhance productivity through increased communication and collaboration, but new audiovisual technology will also increase productivity by saving your employees time.
Allowing teams to meet in a virtual environment, and installing technologies that empower them to seamlessly host meetings and presentations, will ensure your government agency doesn’t suffer from the downtime associated with outdated and hard-to-use technologies.
