Trouble shoot electronics oline and in real-time with Cloud Video Conferencing

Every electronics engineers knows that part of the process is troubleshooting and debugging, at CeeLab we support our clients in using Cloud Video Conferencing to debug online and with colleagues who are remote.

 

The power of Cloud Video Conferencing is that you can stream your video, including the USB microscope, to your colleagues in a virtual meeting room and so everyone can see the problems and the whole process of gathering opinion is so much smoother when everyone is able to see the parts under discussion.

 

Please contact Zimmer and Peacock for CeeCloud powered by Videxio for online debugging of PCB boards.

Is the phone dead for meetings?

Audio conferencing via telephones was once the best way of meeting a number of colleagues who were off site, but there were a couple of glaring issues, which were:

 

1. ISSUE ONE - with phone conferencing nobody could see anyone els and so delegates were continually tripping over one another as they attempted to speak. Clearly the issue was a lack of visual clues as so delegates could not anticipate that someone was about to speak.

 

2. ISSUE TWO - The second issue was that phone conferencing s technology did not have the function to share content and presentations in real time, so if there were documents, images etc that could aid the flow of the discussion or clarify a point it was frustrating that they could not be shared in real-time; instead delegates would be hurriedly emailing out documents etc, rather than focusing on what was being said..

 

These two drawbacks were solved with the advent of Cloud Video Conferencing where video and content can be shared in real time. The result is increased productivity in the meeting as people can see one another, share content as required. The result is shorter more productive meetings.  Most importantly Cloud Video Conferencing means clearer communication and therefore greater understanding and a clear reduction in errors.

 

Please contact CeeLab to have a free demo of Cloud Video Conferencing.

At CeeLab we are crazy about Video Conferencing

If you are looking for a partner to help provide, install and train you and your team in Video Conferencing then please take a look at the home office of one of our directors. Clearly this is a team that is passionate about tools to make business more efficient including Video Conferencing.


Tip for a pocket sized second monitor

At CeeLab we believe that Cloud Video Conferencing means you can stay connected even when remote from the office. If you like us find having a second monitor super useful then always carry an HDMI and VGA cable in your bag as you may be able to plug into a hotel TV and use it as a second monitor.

 

As a back-up we carry the Magnasonic Pico Projector, this pocket sized projector can act as a handy second monitor when on the road.

 

We do a lot of Cloud Video Conferencing when not in the office and having a second monitor means we can share one screen whilst using the second screen for note taking etc.


The beach - work and meet anywhere.

Everyone talks about wanting to get out of the office and working from the beach, this week I tried it and it went pretty well.

 

The critical part  of working from the beach is being able to attend meetings, and so you do require a Cloud Video Conferencing Technology to be able to meet with colleagues, , who are hopefully also on their beach .

 

 


The train - work and meet anywhere.

It’s 9 AM Monday morning on a train from Oslo to Skoppum and I am  waiting to start a video conference call with a colleague in the United Kingdom. The power of  Cloud Video Conferencing means that you can meet with colleagues whilst out of the office and on the move.

What's wrong with Cloud Video Conferencing?

What’s wrong with video conferencing:

 

There’s nothing wrong with video conferencing, but sometimes people have a poor experience and like everything else there is always a reason:

 

1) Poor hardware – Poor microphones and poor speakers are the biggest culprits for a poor user experience when video conferencing. The effect is that you either can’t be heard by others, or you can’t be heard by others; or a little bit of both.  What to do, of course at CeeLab we are biased so please click the link to get a combined microphone and speaker from Sennheiser.

CeeLab helping local businesses

CeeLab is product to a member of our local business meetup. 

 

The CeeLab Cloud Video Conferencing Technology allows local businesses to reach global clients.


Are you, your own customer?

Are you using your own product?

 

Are you using your own product? I recently asked myself this question whilst standing on the tarmac of Lisbon airport waiting to board a plane.   As I stood there in the dark and cold waiting to board my delayed flight I wondered whether the CEO of the airline was using his own product; was he standing in the cold and dark wondering when he will board and take off.  

 

It made me think that you can have low price as your strategy but you don’t need to lose your love for wanting to do a good job whist focusing on being competativiley priced.  If you are wondering if your product or service is lacking then make sure you are your own best customer.   Make sure you are regularly using your product and be critical. 

At CeeLab we use our product everyday and so we have the analytics to tell us the quality of our service but we also know from our own personal experience. 

If you’re the customer of a low-cost airline and you are wondering if there is a better way then you have found your answer, which is yes. At CeeLab we believe there is a better way of getting to international meetings without every traveling, which is by using Cloud Video Conferencing.

CEOs - When to throw out your Mac/Laptop?

When to run your business from your smartphone?

 

We are a twenty-strong person business, located in three countries on two continents, and we have not yet reached the tipping point where I need to throw out my Macs and Laptops, but there is a tipping point in the next couple of years when I should and go 100 % onto my smart devices - either my Android or my iPhone.

 

When you are an entrepreneur CEO with a start-up you are by definition a creative type; with a lot of your creativity expressed through your Mac/laptosp upon which  you create content be it designs, documents, presentations, spreadsheets, code, websites etc. There is a point where you have grown your business to the point where the sum of the talented team you have put in place far outweighs anything you can create, and it’s time to ask the question, ‘if I stop creating and instead focus on nurturing and championing the creativity within my team will we grown revenues faster,’. Clearly a well-motivated team is far more creative than the creative entrepreneur who founded the team. At the point where you, the CEO, senses the team is strong and matured then it’s time to put away your primary creating tools, your PC/Mac/Laptop, and instead focus on being the mobile guy around the business, who consumes most of the content on his smartphone/iPhone/Android. By doing this you can no longer create long document/detailed designs/1000s of lines of code etc, instead you are forced to consume, listen, judge and champion the creativity of your team.

 

As I write this article I have not taken my own advice 😊, because the business has not reached this critical point, but I can see it coming and so I am mentally and practically preparing for the culture shock of being a founder who is no longer the primary creator.

 

What are the practical steps you need to be taking now?

 

1) CLOUD - Go to the Cloud - All your primary functions within your business need to be on the Cloud, by definition Cloud database creator expect people to be viewing content upon small screened smart devices so they naturally have dashboards which summarise the key information.  For example, we use Sage for our accounting. The first screen of Sage shows revenue, our biggest customer by sales and our top biggest overdue accounts, etc. This gives an instant snapshot of the financials of the business. Similarly, we use a number of Zoho databases/products which all have great smart device browsing interfaces.

2) SMART DEVICE - Choose your smart device -  I am on an Android and an iPhone, I love the reliability of the iPhone, but Samsung makes great cameras. For me it is going to come down which is better at transcribing dictation, as small keyboards is going to mean a lot more speaking into the phone in order to ‘write’ an email.

3) STAY CONNECTED - Stay in communication; as the CEO you should be in constant communication with someone in your team be it: directing, advising, mentoring, deciding. You therefore need to have ‘cracked’ easy-communication on the go.  We very are biased as we use our own product CeeCloud, which provides Cloud Video Conferencing on our smartphones, but without it we could not be operating on two continents with offices in three counties.

If you want to know how we use CeeCloud as our primary Cloud Video Conferencing Tool to lead our business then please don’t hesitate to contact us.

 

Now it’s time to shut my laptop, fasten my seatbelt and prepare for landing.

Carry a VGA and HDMI cable in your bag

Cloud Video Conferencing allows you to be connected to the office even when you are on the road, all our sales guys carry VGA and HDMI cables with them; this means they can often plug into the hotel TV and use it to have a better experience when Cloud Video Conferencing with the team back in the main office.

 

If you want to improve the efficiency of your saleteam  then we recommend arming them with a VGA cable, a HDMI cable and a Cloud Video Conference License.


Children and the start up mentality - the balance with Cloud Video Conferencing

When you are in a young company you are excited, highly motivated and the work, the pace, the meetings are very engaging, but then you have a child who's off school with a sickness; and though your child is happy to sit quietly and watch cartoons you can't go into the main office. 

 

At CeeLab we are motivated and fast paced, but we are also very appreciative of people and their families, and so we use Cloud Video Conferencing throughout the day and practically in every meeting.  This means that colleagues who are not able to be on site can easily join the meetings and be part of the discussion.

 

If you, like us, have a team who have outside commitments then offer them the flexibility of joining meetings remotely via Cloud Video Conferencing - happy families makes for happy teams.

Airlines love the handshake

This week we were in Cardiff and a couple of representatives from the airlines came up to us, to sell us on the benefits of flying to meetings, to quote the guy 'nothing can replace the power of the handshake', to which we agree; at CeeLab we are taking flights every week.

 

In this article we contrast flying to just meeting online.

 

The true advantage of Cloud Video Conferencing is that it speeds up decision making, which we can illustrate with an anecdote from  today,  the sequence of events was:

 

1) This morning we meet with a potential supplier at 8 AM, we met online in our CeeCloud Video Conferencing Technology.

 

2) At 10:00 AM the potential supplier send over a quote.

 

3) At 3:00 PM we had an internal meeting online to discuss the quote, and at 3:10 PM we had decided we liked the quote and we emailed to say were happy to move forward.

 

From pitch, to quote, to decision all took place without every having the magic handshake, and the Cloud Video Conferencing sped up the process for all involved.

 

 

 

 

Please contact CeeLab to see how Cloud Video Conferencing can save you time and money and speed up the decision making process.
