In this Blog we talk a lot about the pros and cons of specific tools. True, we enjoy giving a thumbs up or down, but we think it is time to take a step back and have a look at the whole of web conferencing. The thing is: web conferencing tools are constantly improving and making life easier for small to medium businesses, but awareness is still growing slowly – even though researchers indicate the market for web conferencing solutions will grow significantly over the next 5 years.
We published an article in the renowned German IT magazine iX in which we looked at web conferencing as a whole. We will try to present you this article in condensed form, by splitting it into a four-part series.
Part one will point out the differences between web conferencing and IM services or video conferences. In part two we will delve into the usage scenarios of online collaboration services. Part three will feature one of our favorite topics: how can you best share documents when conferencing? The final part four will look at what you need to be aware of when making your choice of which solution you want to use.
So stay tuned and feel free to contact us any time with feedback and questions.
