4 Ways Designers can Profit from Web Conferencing

August 11th, 2016

Web conferencing is a new powerful professional tool that can really help designers in their daily tasks, from performing tests in real time to collecting users’ feedbacks.

Let’s see 4 tips to start with web conferencing.

Could a designer profit from web conferencing? The answer is definitively yes. Web conferencing can be helpful to a web designer at least in four ways:

1.) Web conferencing allows a designer to draw sketches in real time together with his customers.

Web conferencing allows users to work remotely, without the need of physical displacements. A designer can work out a wireframe or a mock-up while the customers look at him through the screen, getting precious feedbacks from his customer in real time.

2.) Web conferencing allows designers to perform usability tests in an easier and faster way.

Web conferencing allows designers to test their artefacts on a group of users in real time and in real life situations. In this way, data can be collected without the need to gather the participants in a physical place.

3.) Web conferencing allows designers to register and film experiments, meetings and conversations.

Through web conferencing products registering or filming a conference in HI quality definition is easy. In this way, it is no longer necessary to spend or invest money in expensive cameras and related equipment.

4.) Web conferencing allows designers to collect user feedbacks in a very natural and easy way.

Pools and raise-hand buttons are only two of the several functionalities that are available on many web conferencing product graphic interfaces to collect participants’ feedbacks. It is also possible to share and collect documents, files, photos, and, obviously, to chat.

These are only few of the many functionalities that today’s web conferencing products offer to designers. Web conferencing is a new world to explore, the potentialities of which are not totally known. But we hope that these tips can stimulate readers to make experiments and explore this new interesting tool.

In this article, the reference is mainly to the tools and functionalities of the products of the company R-HUB (Website: http://www.rhubcom.com), but the following considerations can be naturally generalized to every web conferencing product that has similar features.

Benefits Of Web Conferencing

February 3rd, 2015

Information traffic has increased dramatically over the years, so now people can easily and quickly communicate, as well as download any types of files from the Internet. Business communication has also benefited from the internet expansion and the high speeds. The communication over internet today is cheap and it can be done between great distances through an application called Web conferencing. Web conferencing can help the companies in lowering their costs and saving time, and at the same time increase their profits. Web conferencing can also limit the travel expenses to a bare minimum.

The benefits of using the Web conferencing application can be easily seen if you try to compare the internet communication today and communication from decades ago. In the initial days of internet, in order for a person to communicate and conduct business with another person in another country or city, it had just a couple of options. The first option was to speak by a regular phone and the second option was to arrange a meeting in person. Conference held over a phone had many limitations and was very problematic. Phone lines often disconnected and the charges for speaking over the phone were too high. Also not everything can be covered or discussed easily through the phone. For example, people could not explain visual concepts over telephone calls.

The second option was the in-person meetings. But meetings were even more expensive, as the people needed to travel to the meeting location and there were many costs along the way. The meetings consumed lots of time and the people were absent from their working places for longer periods of time.

Those days are long time over. Today people from all over the world are easily connected through internet, and the huge distances can be covered with just one click on the mouse. With Web conferencing, the business partners and people from everywhere can hold conferences even if they are on the opposite parts of the planet. All kinds of consultations with clients, as well as different discussions, training seminars, webinars, presentations of products, and lots of other things and events can be held through Web conferencing.

Participants are only required to have a computer with a broadband internet connection. Long distance trips are no longer necessary, and that saves lots of money to the companies. Web conferencing is not just good for talking between people over vast distances. It also gives the people the opportunity to hold and show visual presentations, to send different types of applications or files, or to write on a virtual board. What is also good is that through Web conferencing people can see each other, and that gives a feel like they are in the same room. Web conferencing really eases the international communication between business people and the companies, and is very useful and beneficial application that has many functions. Web conferencing is essential software for any company today and is well worth the money for the value and the benefits it brings.
