The Best Way to Record All Your Video Chats

The work-from-home trend continues to pick up weight among companies as they realize the major resource-saving, happy-employee-making benefits. With these remote offices and faraway teams needing to remain connected, video chatting/telecommuting via VOIP services like Skype and Google Hangouts are more important than ever.

Whether your team is together all of the time or works remotely from one another in places around the world, video communications are an increasingly popular medium for keeping in touch. According to Global Workplace Analytics, around half of the entire worldwide workforce are employed in jobs that are compatible with telecommuting. Additionally:

  • Regular work-at-home, among the non-self-employed population, has grown by 103% since 2005.
  • 3.7 million employees (2.8% of the workforce) now work from home at least half the time.
  • The employee population as a whole grew by 1.9% from 2013 to 2014, while employees who telecommute population grew 5.6%.

Employers and colleagues can take advantage of Replay Telecorder to capture every video communication perfectly. Replay Telecorder automatically detects your Skype video chat window, and simple, one-click recording power allows you to place your call and capture immediately.
