Breadth and Depth of Deploying Real-Time Collaboration Tools

January 22nd, 2015

Over the past several years, real-time collaboration tools have matured to the point that the value of such tools has become clearly obvious. In fact, as real-time collaboration tools become easier to use and more oriented toward multimedia and mobile, practically everyone in business can benefit from these tools.

The Benefits of Real-Time Collaboration Tools

Perhaps the biggest benefit offered by real-time collaboration tools is increased productivity. It is now possible to communicate more succinctly and quickly with customers, coworkers, service providers, partners and anyone else with whom you need to communicate regularly using real-time collaboration tools.Along with helping to save time, collaboration tools also help to reduce expenses. Regardless of industry, in every business each employee has associated with him or her a cost of necessary tools that must be provided in order to allow that employee be as productive as possible. Such tools might include a computer, desk, telephone, etc. Companies are increasingly finding that real-time collaboration tools are now a necessity that must be added to the list. Even so, rather than increasing the cost burden of outfitting a new employee, real-time collaboration tools offer a cost-effective solution.

The benefits offered by such tools will naturally vary significantly within a department. Furthermore, the type of tool utilized might also vary among specific departments. In order to manage this environment, many companies will perform ROI estimates to justify both where and when such tools should be deployed. This type of broad-swipe approach, by its very nature, will deny tools to many employees who would be able to ultimately benefit from them. The constraints that such analyses are coping with include cost, multiple vendors for IT support and disparate vendors.

The best practice solution is an approach that allows for easy breadth and depth deployment, such as R-HUB TurboMeeting. With TurboMeetings 6-in-1 approach, every department in a typical business has a tool that can be leveraged for greater productivity. From Webinars to Meeting software to Remote Support and Remote Access, there is a capability for every need.

No Limitations on Usage

One of the most common cost-related problems that many organizations encounter when choosing a real-time collaboration tools is the limitations placed on the number of users. Consequently, the process of deploying such tools in an organization can become very expensive very fast. TurboMeeting’s floating licenses make it essentially free to deploy as deep as you would like in an organization. When the company receives a ROI with just the power users alone, additional return can be gained by providing access to more casual users. There is absolutely no cost for the floating license aspect.

Industry experts continue to point to 2015 as the year of integration. Real-time collaboration tools serve as the lynchpin for such integration. As such tools become increasingly integrated into business processes; employees in all departments are afforded a single place where they can accomplish their work.

Guaranteed Web Conference Attendance from any Platform, Even from your Future iPad

February 3rd, 2010

The iPad was finally introduced to the world last week after month of speculation. Now that the initial excitement has finally settled, somewhat, people are looking more into what iPad has to offer, or the lack thereof. When the iPad was revealed at the Moscone last Wednesday, one of feature people found lacking was that it only supports one app at a time. To add to it, iPad doesn”t support flash.

But despite its lacking in some areas, there is definitely potential with iPad being an on-the-go work tool. A portable device coveted by road warriors and frequent travelers. Given its crisp and vibrant 9.7 inch display, and a 1024×768 screen resolution, the iPad is great for browsing online and reading documents. There is already announcement made by companies about creating a remote access app for the iPad, so you will be able to access your desktop with all the different applications running on it.

But for those who are not looking for a replacement to their laptops, and will be using the iPad for mostly reading books and browsing the web, the lack of flash support is a major drawback. For business users who are frequently on the road and need to attend meeting and seminars online, they would still need their laptops in order to attend as many online conferencing services requires flash and downloads to run.

RHUB”s universal attendance technology allows for anyone to join a meeting as long as they can open up a browser and have access to the internet. And for those concerned with a lack of flash support on the iPad, not to worry. RHUB”s web-based viewing support both flash and non-flash users. So as long you”re connected to the internet, whether through Wi-Fi or the more costly 3G option, you will be able to attend meetings and webinars, guaranteed. Now whether or not you’ll be able to get connection on the AT&T network is a whole other problem.

What are your thoughts, will you be getting an iPad?

Web Conferencing Hits the iPhone

September 24th, 2009

Iphone – the feature rich device that has taken the world by storm has entered another arena, web meetings. According to news reports a new application was recently created for this popular smart phone that allows users to schedule online meetings and view meeting agenda among other features.
The application was created by TimeBridge, a company that specializes in software for setting up and running meetings online. One of their more popular offerings issues a SMS reminder prior to when a scheduled meeting is about to start. This is known as the Meeting Time Messenger SMS notification tool. (This new application won’t be available until October and is currently going through Apple’s approval process.)

Apple has always presented itself with something akin to an air of exclusivity. Owners of Apple computers have for years seemed to be part of an unofficial club. Given that their prices tend to be higher than PCs that trend has continued, although they have trotted out smaller laptops in recent years that are a bit easier on most pockets. The iPhone however is a bit different. Not everyone who owns one is necessarily an Apple devotee. Many computer users who insist they will never trade in the reliable PC for a Mac are huge iPhone fans.

What will this do for web conferencing? It seems that many have embraced this new idea. Larger players in the market are already making online meetings a relatively simple and convenient procedure by integrating web conferencing with the iPhone.

We at RHUB have developed a universal attendance technology that allows for anyone to join a meeting as long as they can open up a browser and have access to the internet. What does this mean for phones? As long as your phone has 3G capabilities, you are able to attend the meeting. Therefore, there are never any issues with attending meetings when using TurboMeeting. Like what the spokesman for the Men’s Warehouse says: “I guarantee it!”
