Web-based Conferencing: What Every Company Needs

Dec 19, 2007
Wouldn't it be great if everyone in the office were all born with the gift of mental telepathy? There'd be no need for the telephone lines and fax machines, much less the Internet. But since this is impossible, we have to be thankful for the next best thing - web-based conferencing.

Save Your Christmas with Web-based conferencing

Imagine this: Christmas is in the air and you've just taken a holiday leave to visit your family. As soon as you step off the plane, you turn on your cell phone and it rings like crazy. It's your boss. An important client wants to talk to you about something equally important. Your boss orders you to get on the next plane back. You say you can't and refer a co-worker to replace you in the meeting. He says he needs you, doesn't take no for an answer, and even threatens you with your job.

If you want to keep your job, there'd be nothing left for you to do but comply with your boss's orders. Goodbye warm nights around the fireplace, goodbye presents, goodbye mom and dad. This may seem like the worst situation any employee would want to be in, but these things happen every so often to people who are not yet acquainted to web-based conferencing.

Now if you know your way 'round the net, and the same thing happened to you, it wouldn't be such a problem. You tell your boss that's there's no need to waste money on airfare. When he starts to scream on the phone, you tell him to calm down and introduce him to web-based conferencing.

Designed To Meet Your Needs

Web-based conferencing systems have creative communication tools that allow you to save time and money on travel costs. With the features on these systems, you'll find that web conferences can be as interactive and as dynamic as face-to-face meetings.

A typical web-based conferencing system is equipped with just about every application you might need. You can share ideas with other participants by uploading your PowerPoint presentation. You can also write notes and draw diagrams on screen, like an online "whiteboard." Along with these smart features, web-based conferencing have screen sharing, file transfer, and web touring options.

Another powerful feature is application sharing. This allows you to share applications from your desktop to your participants. Be careful with this feature, though, because it allows the participants full access to all your documents. The creators of these conferencing systems have also designed helpful applications for the audiences or other participants. There's the Live Chat option that allows the participants to talk amongst themselves.

The systems are also equipped with a Polling feature, which provides the moderator with instant feedback on multiple answer questions, the Q&A, which gathers all the questions from the attendees, and the Help Request feature that will allow attendees to alert the moderator when they need help on anything.

Get Your Web-based Conferencing Started

The web-based conferencing system is so easy to use. All you need to do is visit the site and register an account with your username and password. This only takes about a few seconds. Make sure your client and boss create their own account too. The site will then provide you with all the necessary information regarding the different features of the system and you're a step closer to getting that much deserved holiday break.
