Reasons For Web Conferencing

By Lex Luthor

Conference, meeting and presentation are very important in any business. These are venues for organization, problem solving and planning – crucial to the sustainability and growth of the company. But with today’s global business trend, conducting an actual conference, meeting and presentations has become very expensive.

Web conferencing enables document, file, application and even desktop sharing. Web conferencing can use a downloaded software or just access a URL and use a password or access code to join the group conducting the web-based conference. Web conference lessens the company funds spent on travel and also the time and effort invested on travelling.

If your business is running on a constraint budget or you have just put up your business, you benefit very well on web conferencing by conducting meeting, business proposals and short presentation with your future clients without spending big amount of money. Large companies who are conducting deals online can also save money on using web conference hosting services.

While teleconferencing is already being used long before the boom of the internet technology, it is very expensive. Overseas calls can cost hundreds of dollars a month depending on the frequency and length of every call. And while it is a reliable form of remote communication, teleconferencing only allows you to hear the voice of the person on the other end of the line. Meanwhile, web conferencing enables you to hear and see the persons you are talking too. Using a webcam, web conferencing is just like a normal office meeting. Also, visual presentations (PowerPoint for Windows, Keynote on a Mac) are also possible with web conferencing – a feature that is not available on teleconferencing or in any other forms of audio conference.

Another advantage of web conferencing is that it bridges geographical distance. Exporters who need to contact their clients abroad can opt to choose online business meetings. Large companies who have branches overseas can talk to their executives online. Partners who are worlds apart can instantly update one another on the current state of their business.

With desktop sharing, remote login or control is possible. With remote login or control, it is necessary to have a downloaded software for the sharing, internet connection and secure desktop sharing network. To share a desktop, the host computer allows a remote user to view the contents of the host computer’s desktop.

Several companies are also switching to web conferencing to include absentee shareholders in their company meetings. Companies would include a live and interactive web conference for their shareholders who are unable to attend in person.

Desktop sharing also enables workers to enhance their collaboration and cooperation towards productiveness. If an employee is sent to a another location to conduct seminars or to do a very important presentation, this employee may contact his co-workers and ask for their opinion about his presentation. Co-workers can access the employee’s computer and provide some input about the presentation without physically going and visiting the employee who is away.

Through desktop sharing and web conferencing, working and professional relationship are improved. Conducive and productive working atmosphere is developed inside the workplace.
