Attorneys Empowered Through Mobile Video Conferencing

July 31, 2017

As we’ve seen before, people have been having a hard time getting to their obligations recently. People have been experiencing difficulties in Australia when going to adopt animals, the court system in India is struggling to conduct trials because there aren’t enough guards to transport inmates, and students are unable to attend classes in certain areas of the world. Until recently, these obstacles were insurmountable. People had to be present in order to take care of the abovementioned scenarios. But that’s no longer the case.

Ever since the advent of video conferencing, communicating from afar has become much easier. We no longer need to be in the same room as another person in order to see them face to face, and that’s been saving a lot of time and money.

Most recently, the benefits of video conferencing were showcased when Depo International in Minneapolis, MN decided to incorporate mobile video conferencing opportunities into its operations. Depo International focuses on real time court reporting services provided by industry professionals. It offers help with interpreters, exhibit solutions, legal videography, remote depositions, trial consulting, global scheduling and more.

No one knows better than attorneys that it’s literally impossible to be everywhere at once. Attorneys have to carry out depositions on a regular basis and it can be challenging to get to numerous locations. The inability to travel quickly from place to place can cut down on the progress they are able to make in their cases.

For this reason, Depo International has introduced mobile video conferencing. With streaming text, group chat and video and audio available immediately, an attorney's entire team and experts can immediately join into a deposition session and remain as an active participant. In this way, attorneys can easily cut down on travel costs and time, allowing them to conduct depositions effectively, no matter where they’re located. They can also schedule more depositions per day and ensure that each case gets the attention it needs.
