A ladder symbolizing the steps you need to do to introduce your team to a tool at the office

In today's global business world, remote work and hybrid teams are becoming increasingly common. With this shift, it's essential to have the right tools to keep everyone connected and collaborating effectively. One critical tool for hybrid teams is a high-quality video conference camera. However, introducing a new tool (whether software or hardware) to your team can be challenging, especially when they're already juggling multiple technologies. 

In this article, we'll discuss six steps to successfully introduce your hybrid team to a new video conference camera.

Step 1: Define Your Goals and Objectives

Before introducing a new tool to your team, it's essential to define your goals and objectives. Make sure to discuss these points with your team:

  • Why are you introducing this new tool or video conference camera? 
  • What do you hope to achieve? 
  • Is it aligned with the team’s needs?

Ensure that your goals align with your team's needs and that you're clear on what success looks like. At this point, it is good to also request recommendations from team members. As they will be devoting their working hours to learning and using these new tools, they may know what’s best for their current needs.

Decision-makers often neglect to draw out enthusiasm and adoption from employees if they “forcefully” introduce new tools. Make sure you speak with your team first!

Step 3: Communicate the Benefits of your chosen video conference camera for hybrid work.

Once you've chosen your video conference camera, it's time to communicate the benefits to your whole team. Explain how the new camera will improve collaboration, productivity, and the overall work experience. Since you’re doing hybrid work, your new tool will benefit you immensely. Highlight the features that will make their work lives easier. Here are some examples:

  • There's no need to travel if you’re working remotely.
  • See everybody clearly.
  • In an onsite setup of a hybrid meeting, use only 1 laptop for the team to join.
  • Hear everyone clearly.
  • Create an atmosphere of professionalism while away.
  • Feel like you’re part of the conversation despite working remotely.

Good company management requires an ROI on any investment, which also includes tools that use up your team’s time and energy. If you’re sure which video conference camera to use, you’ll have no problem sharing its benefits with your team members.

Step 4: Provide Training and Support (unless it’s Plug-and-Play)

To ensure your team can use the new video conference camera effectively, provide comprehensive training and support together with your IT team. Offer group and individual tutorials, proper documentation, and one-on-one team support to help your team get up to speed on your recent purchase. 

If you’re using plug-and-play technology like Coolpo AI Huddle cameras, encourage your team to experiment themselves and ask questions after trying the product. This increases their confidence in using the technology. Moreover, hands-on experience will beat any training or seminar you’re willing to provide.

Additionally, if you encouraged your team to adopt new technology, you may want to take the lead in using the technology in your day-to-day work. It’s always good for company morale to see top management “do what they preach." 

Step 5: Get Feedback

Throughout the implementation process, regularly (if possible) solicit feedback from your team. Ask for their opinions on the new camera and how it's affecting their work.

  • Are your goals being achieved?
  • Are the objectives being carried out?
  • Are the benefits being realized?
  • Are there other features that could make their experience better?

Take their feedback seriously and make adjustments as needed to ensure the camera meets their needs. If needed, you can provide messages to manufacturers for support.

Step 6: Reinforce Usage

Finally, reinforce the use of the new video conference camera. Here are just some use cases for your new video conference camera:

  • Remote employee onboarding
  • Sales pitches
  • Client meetings
  • Panel and one-on-one interviews
  • Board reviews
  • Huddle video sessions
  • Brainstorming
  • Product support
  • Product demonstrations
  • Hybrid events (online + onsite seminars, parties, prayers, etc.)
  • Catch up
  • Remote “water cooler” talks

Encourage team members to use your latest video conference camera purchase in all their meetings, even when they're not working remotely. Make it a part of your standard communication tools and ensure everyone is using it consistently.
