Five Reasons to Use Video Remote Interpreting (VRI)

Five Reasons to Use Video Remote Interpreting (VRI)

When you need interpreting assistance, but there are obstacles to travel, consider the five benefits of VRI. Refined technology and smooth procedures make it a powerful, sophisticated tool that may be just what you need. Here’s why.

1. Immediate Access

Quick set-up by our experts leaves the connection and software issues to us. Any communication, anywhere with Wifi access, can be facilitated through VRI. What about short, urgent transactions such as 9-1-1 calls? VRI is perfectly suited for such immediate, time-sensitive needs.

2. Inclusiveness

When communication between parties can be facilitated through a remote interpreter who is visible on a screen, everyone present feels involved. This means more people can directly understand and contribute to what is being discussed, without anyone having to travel or even leave their home.

3. Money-saving

With zero travel expenses, and far fewer employee hours spent planning and executing trips, VRI can open up some serious savings for you.

4. Clarity

We have all experienced the gaps and missed beats in communication that can happen with written communication and phone calls. But video discussions with an interpreter include visual clues – full communication occurs, and accuracy is greatly increased.

5. Safety

Management of the current Covid-19 virus will lead to restoration of normal business options, including in-person meetings, negotiations, and conferences. Even without a pandemic restricting movement and gatherings, however, VRI offers the comfort and safety of completing important communications without commonplace travel risks and burdens.

VRI has been utilized in certain situations for quite a while. But today, technological advances, as well as social restrictions, make this an important, easy asset that your company can benefit from. We wish you and your endeavors the best in these difficult times, and hope to see you on-screen.
