R-HUB Web Conferencing Servers – Driving Productivity Deeper into the Organization with Cost Benefits

June 18th, 2015

Have you ever found yourself wondering how much an online meeting costs you? What would be the cost if you have more than just one participant in a meeting? Which tools should you use? What are the best tools? If you are thinking about all of these questions: we have a solution for you. And, you guessed it right. It’s R-HUB Web Conferencing Servers.

R-HUB web conferencing servers are appliances that provide six functionalities in one box. It’s a 6-in-1 Server:

  • Web Conferencing
  • Video Conferencing
  • Audio Conferencing
  • Remote Support
  • Remote Access
  • Webinar 

So, it is no longer necessary to switch tools for conducting an online meeting and providing a remote support or hosting a video conference. R-HUB handles everything by providing you with the above functionalities, all in one convenient box.

Now, imagine for a moment that you have signed up for 50 participants with a hosted online meeting service provider. Let’s say it was WebEx. What if you want to provide remote support to your participants, as well? You are stuck. You will need to sign up with a remote support service provider, such as LogMeIn, in order to provide remote support, which is an additional cost burden.

With R-HUB, there is no need to worry. You can conduct online meetings and provide remote access or remote support services to your customers at the same time. This can result in a significant cost saver, as you invest only one time and gain access to R-HUB appliance for lifetime. No further costs at all. One of our customers, who was involved in the manufacturing industry quoted R-HUB software TurboMeeting as “with TurboMeeting 400 people have access versus 50 with WebEx.”

You can even conduct a HD desktop video conference with 30 participants at one time. In addition, you can have HD Free VOIP Audio Conferencing service absolutely free available from R-HUB. Just imagine the costs that you will be able to save if you purchased a R-HUB web conferencing server, by viewing the graphs below.

Let’s say you are conducting a meeting with two hosts: one host and one participant. With R-HUB, your cost remains unchanged for 24 months, i.e. $1,434. Now, see the cost increase if you subscribe to other hosted service providers.

  • For WebEx, you end up paying $2,352 for 24 months
  • For LogMeIn, you end up paying $6,192 for 24 months
  • For WebEx + LogMeIn, you end up paying $8,544 for 24months

Now, let’s say you are conducting a meeting with 10 participants; one host and nine attendees. Again, for R-HUB, the cost remains unchanged at just $1,434 for 24 months. But, now we see the increase in costs if you are using hosted solutions:

  • For WebEx, you end up paying $11,760, for 24 months
  • For LogMeIn, you end up paying $30,960 for 24 months
  • For WebEx + LogMeIn, you end up paying $42,720 for 24 months

Shouldn’t Web Conferences Be Simple?

June 2nd, 2015

We certainly believe that web conferences should be simple. Unfortunately, many web conferencing software products seem overly complicated. At R-HUB, we think that scheduling, inviting people, and beginning a meeting should be as simple as clicking a button. With R-HUB Web Conferencing Servers, our powerful web conferencing software, it really is that simple.

The picture above is an actual screenshot of a web conferencing application. Each of the buttons you see leads you to a screen as shown by the arrows. There is even a pre-made email that allows you to invite people to your meeting.

Of course, you can still choose to write your own email invitation, if that is what you would prefer to do. The choice remains up to you. Not only does R-HUB Web Conferencing Server make it easy to schedule, invite, and begin your meeting, but once you have started your meeting, you can take advantage of an easy-to-use interface. We designed this interface from the ground up to ensure it is as easy to use as possible, thus allowing you to focus more on your meeting and less on the mechanics of running it.

For instance, once you are actually in your meeting, R-HUB Web Conferencing Server allows you to easily upload any of the files that you may need. Whether that happens to be a PowerPoint, PDF, Excel, or Word file, you can preload and upload files on the fly without the need to interrupt your attendees’ screens.

This makes it possible for you to maintain a completely professional appearance even if you might have forgotten to upload a document. Your participants need never know about it. R-HUB also provides you with easy control over the layout of your presentation. The availability of simple tools also allows you to call attention to specific parts of your documents.

These features mean that you can give a professional presentation without the need to spend hours just trying to learn the software necessary to provide your presentation. R-HUB Web Conferencing Servers are also incredibly easy for your participants to use. All they need to do is click a link from the invitation and they are ready to go. There is absolutely nothing for your participants to download in order to attend the meeting. Not only does this help to save your attendees time, but it also helps to increase your attendance and participation rate because it eliminates concerns that your attendees will not be able to participate due to firewall restrictions on their end.

In today’s global world of business, it is now important than ever that your organization be able to interact with colleagues, clients, and employees wherever they may be located. The easy-to-use features on R-HUB Web Conferencing Servers give you the ability to do that while saving valuable resources and enhancing your professional business image.

The Advantages to Using a Single Platform for Business Conferencing: R-HUB Web Conferencing Servers

May 22nd, 2015

build_trust

Today, it seems as though everyone has their own preferred method for reaching out to and communicating with others. For instance, some people prefer to rely on their smartphones, while other individuals are more traditional and like to use their desktops. Along with a varied number of different communication devices being in use, those devices often times have different operating systems. While some people like Microsoft Windows, there are many people who prefer to use only Apple. Given such a wide variety of technologies and platforms now in use today, the act of bringing people together online for business meetings can often seem like an insurmountable challenge.

Yet, it doesn’t have to be that way. It is possible to get all of these varied devices to communicate with one another while simultaneously managing the details of a web conference, such as sharing files and video. The solution is to use a collaboration system that is compatible with all devices, such as R-HUB web conferencing servers. Using a single web conferencing platform works to enhance business conferencing while creating a much smoother process.

The more streamlined your communication and conferencing process, the easier it is to be productive. In today’s highly competitive business world, it is vital that your organization be able to communicate with global partners and colleagues in the most effective manner possible. Even a small glitch in communication can result in confusion, misunderstandings, and lost business opportunities. A single platform can set the stage for improved business communications.

Why Choose a Single Platform

In addition to the fact that it can be difficult to get different devices to connect with one another, there are many other ways in which a web conferencing platform can enhance business conferencing, including:

  • Participants can easily share files and video without having to do things such as opening up a new application or reformatting. This can help save a tremendous amount of time while improving overall communication capabilities. 
  • It is also possible for users to share their screen, whether it is a tablet screen or computer screen, which also helps to simplify the entire process and provide more opportunities for greater communication. 
  • Additionally, whether a participant wishes to share info via email, IM, video chat, or voice, they are able to do so, further simplifying the conference.

Since the use of a single platform is easier and quicker, you spend far less time trying to figure out how to share info. As a result, you can spend more time on the conference itself, providing the opportunity for far greater productivity. Also, since only one conferencing system is used to manage a variety of different tools, it also means that you can spend less money on other sharing devices, thus driving down business costs.

How R-HUB Web Conferencing Servers Can Save You Money on Remote Workers

May 18th, 2015

build_trust

Remote workers are rapidly are becoming increasingly common within workplaces around the world. Whether those workers are traveling salesmen, IT professionals, or simply people who live too far from the office to commute each day, having a method for communicating efficiently is a necessity. Among the best ways to accomplish this is with web conferencing. Below are just a few of the ways in which R-HUB web conferencing servers can assist you in communicating with remote workers.

Use of Webcams- The R-HUB web conferencing platform allows for the use of multiple webcams during meetings. This is quite beneficial because it can provide you with the feel of a face-to-face meeting without the need to call everyone into the office to attend the meeting. In situations in which workers are based in disparate locations, the use of web cams for web conferencing can help your organization to save a tremendous amount of money in travel expenses. That is money that you can deploy directly back into your organization for improving product development, marketing, or other areas to help boost your bottom line.

More Personalized Interaction- Communicating over the phone can only accomplish so much. It can be difficult to catch all of the nuances of communication when you are only able to communicate via audio. Web conferencing gives you the ability to benefit from true face-to-face communication for the highest quality interaction possible.

Document Sharing- The document-sharing feature gives you the ability to upload any Word, Excel, PowerPoint, or PDF file directly into your presentation. It also provides you with the opportunity to utilize annotation tools to highlight specific elements of your document. This can be great for instances in which you need to help traveling sales reps become more familiar with new products or if there is a policy change that you want to point out to remote employees. As a result, you can rest assured that everyone receives the same information at the same time while taking advantage of the opportunity to clarify points and avoid any potential confusion.

WebRTC Integration- WebRTC Integration provides the ability to call in using the built-in microphone on your computer or dial in using any telephone. This also makes it possible for you to log in online and when you call in with your phone, it will provide you with a code to link your phone number and user ID.

Not only can these features make web meetings beneficial for remote workers, but web conferencing can also help your company to save a ton of money on travel expenses. Currently, the reimbursement rate for travel mileage is nearly 58 cents per mile. If someone is driving conservatively at 60 mph, that adds up to about 58 cents per minute. Web conferencing can be utilized for just a fraction of that cost.

You may contact us at 1-866-758-0984 or email us at sales@rhubcom.com  for a quick demo so that you can see just how much web conferencing can save your company.

Use R-HUB Web Conferencing Servers to Plan Your Next Party Online

April 17th, 2015

build_trust

Web conferencing offers a powerful online meeting solution. Frequently used by Fortune 500 companies, web conferencing makes it possible for organizations to collaborate without the need to meet face-to-face. This is a benefit that has proven to be particularly important in an increasingly global business environment. With web conferencing, organizations can meet with prospective clients, conduct training, and hold in-house meetings even when the relevant parties are scattered around the world.

While this may be among the most common ways to use such tools, web conferencing also provides a number of other functions beyond the normal day-to-day business activities.

Wedding Planning with Web Conferencing
One example of other ways in which web conferencing can be used is as an event planning tool. For instance, web conferencing can be used to plan everything from weddings to holiday parties to family reunions. The same tools that make web conferencing a must have for companies, also make it an easy way to plan your next event.

Web conferencing can prove to be an excellent tool for planning a wedding because of the many document-sharing features offered. For instance, with this feature, you can upload seating plans, invitation, menus, and much more so that everyone involved in the planning of your wedding can see everything in person. You can also leverage the benefit of fun, colorful annotation tools that allow you to highlight various elements. You can even bring new ideas into the chat box.

Planning Holiday Parties Using Web Conferencing
Such tools can also be great for planning holiday parties and other events using the video chat feature. With this feature, everyone can get together using their webcams and even share their thoughts without the need to be in the same place at the same time. All of this can be accomplished from any computer that has a microphone and a webcam. As a result, everyone is able to provide input into the event planning process.

Planning Family Events with Web Conferencing
Need to plan a summer picnic or a family reunion? Web conferencing gives you the ability to do so easily. Use the document sharing feature to upload a calendar to discuss which dates will work best for everyone. In addition, you can even add a survey that allows friends and family members to provide feedback. For instance, suppose you are considering including certain events, such as genealogy workshops to your family reunion, or want to solicit feedback from everyone regarding events they would like to have included. Using a survey is a fast and efficient way to collect information from everyone regarding their preferences.

These are just a few of the ways in which you can take advantage of web conferencing outside of the traditional work environment in order to make event planning easier and more efficient.
