Feeling a little divide between you and them? Here are a few tips to rejig the way you interact with clients and enhance your client collaboration.
1. Communicate through technology.
If you’re new to the concept of virtual reality, here’s a quick overview of what it can do for your client collaboration.
Virtual reality allows your clients (who often don’t have the inherent visualization skills you have) to truly experience a design. It’s the closest they’ll get to being in the space without… well… being in the space.
This means they’ll make decisions and identify design issues faster (without any construction required), and have a better idea of what they’re getting before construction even begins.
2. Guide and moderate their viewing experience.
Let them know where they are and where you’re taking them, and point out certain features of interest if they seem a little overwhelmed in the space. Be sure to give them a quick overview of the software and hardware if it’s new to them, and let them know that its sole purpose is to help you share your ideas easier.
3. Don’t let technology replace human to human connection.
Technology is exciting and revolutionary, but it’ll never beat a good old-fashioned face-to-face meeting. If you’re using virtual reality in a meeting with clients, be sure to spend plenty of time with the goggles off, and make a little eye contact! And, no matter how tech-savvy you and your clients are, don’t let remote collaboration sessions fully replace onsite meetings. Ever.
