The Benefits of Screen Recording For Teams

One of the most common challenges a team faces is finding effective ways to communicate their thoughts and ideas with other team members and individuals outside their organization. People naturally respond to visual cues, interpreting and processing images approximately 60,000x faster than text. Have you ever tried to explain a specific problem or project element to someone through an email and have the crucial details completely lost in translation? When you SHOW another person exactly what you want to accomplish by recording your screen, you can quickly communicate and demonstrate the pertinent details of the task at hand.

The Top Screen Recorder for PC

The technology that allows PC users to record their screens has been available for many years, however, it was never heavily adopted in the workplace. Previous screen recording options were tedious and cumbersome, making it difficult to capture content when switching between screens, or recording the audio with a noticeable echo. CloudApp’s screen recording app makes recording on a Windows operating system simple and painless. Our platform allows you to record HD video from your screen or webcam and share instantly without having to upload through a third party – simply record and a link is automatically generated to your clipboard. CloudApp gives you the option to password protect your link and set a corresponding expiry date, allowing for you to control exactly who has access to the content and how long they can view it for.
