Conferencing in the Global Marketplace

Aug 23, 2007
Today we live in a world where the term global marketplace is a household term. What this means is that business is expanding at the global level. This term was initially reserved for big business in the corporate sector as they had established branches all across the globe. Today, with the Internet being less of the latest invention and more of a global commodity, technology has revolutionized the way in which business works. Even small businesses today can, and should, take advantage of all of the commodities the Internet and technology has to offer in terms of reaching out to markets at a global level.

One way in which this can be accomplished is through the use of web and audio conference calling. There are numerous advantages to any business' using this technology to carry out every day business communication. Web and audio conferencing offers an enormous potential as communication tools that will help both big and small businesses achieve their ultimate goals -- save money, and ultimately increase their revenue.

Audio conferencing is a tool that connects clients, workers, and people that are in separate locations. This means that you can audio conference with a client that works in the building across the street from you, or you can connect with an associate that works on the other side of the globe. Three participants are required for audio conferencing so you can create department meetings, regional conferences, or reach your international directors at any time of the day, all at the same time through audio conferencing. This is typically accomplished through telephones that contain multiple lines. If your business is extensive enough, you can work with a PBX (private branch exchange). A PBX will be one exchange that is used solely for your office or business.

You can extend your use of technology by taking your communication onto the Internet and taking advantage of web conferencing. Web conferencing offers a new way of communicating with colleagues and clients that are located all across the world. Web conferencing offers the versatility of communicating with others in real time format through tools such as web cameras and microphones and chat or conference room capabilities. This form of communication also offers the appeal of document transmission and easily displayed information -- all through a standard computer.

The advantages of both audio and web conferencing are numerous. However, their greatest appeal is the cost-saving benefit your business will experience. This will ultimately enhance your overall productivity.
