One of the hardest parts of the being an entrepreneur is being torn between traveling and spending time with friends and family and meeting obligations at the office. If you missed out on some important family moments, here are five ways to untether from the desk with video conferencing:

Meet on the go: Not finished yet with your video meeting, but you need to get home? With the latest in cloud technology, you can take your video conference on the go – from any mobile device.

Stay connected: Even when you’re out taking care of personal obligations, it’s easier than ever to stay connected with your office-based team. Inexpensive, high-quality video conferencing solutions can be set up in huddle rooms, conference rooms and anywhere else that’s convenient.

Keep it easy: The latest video-conferencing technology is ready to go – right out of the box, making it easy for the whole team to connect. Say goodbye to that IT army you needed before to get the meeting up and running (not to mention all the troubleshooting necessary during the meeting).

Maintain your presence: They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so just imagine the power of video to maintain your presence while out of the office. Audio only goes so far to connect, but with video you make it personal.

Entrepreneurship is the ultimate practice in time management and multi-tasking. Why not use the technology tools available at your fingertips to help manage the process? This year, outfit your office with innovative video-conferencing systems and you can untether from your desk to meet all of your life responsibilities.
