Remote opportunities ballooned from under 4% of all high paying jobs before the pandemic to about 9% at the end of 2020, and to more than 15% today, according to researchers from Ladders. A quarter of all North American professional jobs were remote in Q1 2022, a figure that is expected to continue to rise.
That’s not including hybrid workers, who split their time between the office and remote working, which increases the figure significantly.
What’s become abundantly clear is that remote work can be as effective – of not more – than going to the office, with the right technologies. Video conferencing is one of the biggest drivers of remote work success but, workers can often benefit from specific tools to support their virtual meetings.
To support remote workers, Mimo Monitors, small touchscreen monitors innovator, launched its first video conferencing software, Unify Meeting, eliminating common video conferencing pain points with one intuitive interface across Zoom, Google Meet and Microsoft Teams. Suddenly, there’s no need to search for the mute button or deal with the hassle of software updates that shift where everything is on the screen – and somehow tend to happen only when you are about to log onto an important meeting.
Unify Meeting displays the calendar at all times to make it easy to see daily schedules and upcoming meetings. When it is time for a meeting, the user will tap the calendar invite, and the app will open the correct video conference software in its standardized UI format without the user needing to open the conferencing application manually.
Unify Meeting works best on a second or third screen, ideally on a 7-inch touchscreen display – which Mimo Monitors can also provide, of course. Users still have the same conferencing experience with their app’s original UI is still displayed and functional. They just don’t have to deal with toggling between apps and screens anymore.
"We know that people experience frustration in needing to oscillate back and forth between different video conferencing interfaces," said Mimo Monitors President David Anderson. "We sought out to solve this problem with an intuitive, easy-to-navigate solution to streamline video conferencing, eliminate hassle and increase reliability."
A Unify Meeting subscription costs $2.99 per month, $35.88 per year or is included with any purchase of Mimo Monitors USB Touch Display.
