Everything Tech, a technology firm based in the North West, has recently reported a huge surge in demand for video conferencing as the vast majority of employees and businesses have resorted to working from home amidst the coronavirus pandemic.
The firm said that in the last six weeks, they have more than 35 requests for video conferencing equipment to be installed as companies prepare themselves for a gradual return to work next month.
The Microsoft Gold Partner firm, which is based in Manchester's Hanover House, specialises in helping companies transform their businesses through the use of Microsoft 365 technology.
Commenting on the growing demand for video conferencing, the firm's founder, Lee Wrall, said: "Before the pandemic, there was a stigma attached to video conferencing.
"People felt it was clunky and complicated. People were prepared to travel the length and breadth of the country for a 40-minute rather than rely on video conferencing.
"They didn't have confidence in the technology but Covid-19 changed everything and we all went Teams and Zoom crazy. They're much more familiar with technology and it's become acceptable.
"Companies aren't only realising that this technology is good but it could save them a pile of cash."
