With the increasing shift to remote work, telecommuting has increased by 115% in the last ten years and continues to grow. Currently, 78% of corporate businesses use video conferencing tools, and 94% state that the company benefits from greater productivity. Not only does video conferencing make the digital work environment more efficient, but telecommuting has proven to be so efficient, 31% of business travelers plan to reduce their business travel going forward. 

Here is information on how to get started in our docs.

Telecommuting for Every Scenario

In addition to standard business meetings, people have adapted to use video conference tools in various ways across industries such as education, healthcare, design, real estate and more. 

Here are a few examples of how video conferencing can be used across industries:

  • Sales:  Sales reps using your application can surface availability for all stakeholders with the Nylas availability endpoint and automatically include Zoom links when scheduling meetings with prospects – freeing up time spent on scheduling to focus more on their book of business.
  • Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS): Leveraging your application, recruiters extract data from PDF resumes using Nylas’ OCR capabilities and schedule video screens for candidates using MS Teams Meet. 
  • Healthcare: Practices running on your application provide their patients the ability for telehealth appointments. Built on Nylas, your application not only continues to follow stringent HIPAA/HITECH compliances, but each appointment set can have unique video conference links based on your users’ settings.

Video Conferencing is Here to Stay

97% of remote workers plan to incorporate remote work throughout the rest of their careers, and video conferencing is key. Direct integrations with video conference tools in applications are becoming must-haves, and Nylas is here to help.
