3 Reasons Web Conferencing Allows For Productivity In Meetings

January 6th, 2015

A web conference is a type of conference meeting that takes place over the internet (that’s why it is sometimes called internet conference). They are used for holding meetings with coworkers or customers regardless of their location.

Two decades ago it was impossible to hold a conference meeting without all participants being present in the same room. Thanks to the advance in technology this is not only possible but it is already practiced by hundreds of companies from all over the world. Web conference service is a term used to describe a hosted application. This type of conferencing has literally made a small revolution in the field of customer service, sales, technical support and overall interpersonal communications.

There are many benefits of using web conferencing. For example, many companies are using it as an easy way to conduct employee training. Some other companies are focused on using web conferencing as a tool that improves their relations with the customers. This means that in some cases the support teams from one company can access the client’s computer and fix the problem remotely. Of course, web conferencing can save a lot of money too. You will be able to host a travel-free meeting at any time you want.

Finally, web conferencing increases productivity in meetings. Increased productivity is one of the main goals of every company in the world, so it is no surprise why more and more companies choose web conferencing as a great tool that can increase productivity and on top of that – reduce costs. The following is a shortlist of reasons allows for productivity in meetings.

1. The opportunity to select the right people for the meeting

Many business experts have confirmed that one of the main reasons for meetings that are ineffective and sometimes completely unproductive is the fact that there are many people who don’t need to be at that particular meeting. In other words, instead of inviting the right people, hosts invite the wrong ones. If you have wrong people at the meeting, this meeting will most likely end without saying the right things and without proper and fruitful discussion. In case we are talking about physical conference, this conference will probably mean a waste of money too. One of the best things about web conferencing is that you can send invitations and topics before the internet meeting starts and you will have a clear view of who will be present. Even if some people who join the meeting are not interested in the topic they can leave the meeting without any problems and without causing distractions.

2. Being dedicated to a plan

It is sometimes difficult for business owners / leaders to dedicate the meeting to the agenda they had before the meeting started. This problem can be increased in cases when customers and clients are based in remote locations or live in different time zones. Web conferencing is a great solution for situations like these, because business presenters can stick to their agenda by using precise and short spreadsheets and PowerPoint presentations.

3. Chance for a face-to-face meeting

As we have mentioned before web conferencing allows face-to-face communication between employees and this is something that can boost everyone’s morale and improve camaraderie too which eventually leads to greater productivity.

Shifting Sands: Social Media and Mobile Devices

October 1st, 2013

Just as the advent of the modern printing press completely revolutionized the method and rate at which we circulated information and ideas, social media platforms have once again changed our world by connecting its inhabitants both nationally and internationally — in an instant!

So-called “breaking news” nowadays has a very short shelf life, because within mere moments, a big news event will be widespread common knowledge from simply trending on Twitter. A video that was shot in one small corner of the earth can quickly reach mainstream consciousness from going viral on YouTube.

Therefore, acknowledging these undeniably effective media, it’s important to understand that these new means of spreading information have affected the way we communicate, both on a personal level and in our business-related interactions.

These facts lead to a logical trend whereby many companies worldwide are trying to harness the power of social media to further their business concept. What power? Consider these numbers: In Facebook’s second quarter report from July 2013, the social media titan reported that it had 1.15 billion monthly active users and 699 million daily active users. Facebook’s mobile monthly active users were reported at 819 million. And though Twitter releases its statistic less frequently, in 2011 Twitter reported that it had more than 100 million active users worldwide.

Facebook and Twitter are the top dogs when it comes to social media marketing. Countless companies are tapping into the power of Facebook and Twitter, in hopes of promoting their products and connecting with their clients. But Harvard Business Review reports that out of 2,100 companies, only 12 percent of companies believe they’re using social media effectively, while 43 percent consider themselves ineffective users.

Another trend we’re seeing in our interconnected, business landscape is a mass migration toward the usage of mobile devices. In June of 2013, the Monetate Ecommerce Quarterly’s first quarter report shows that the use of tablets and smartphones nearly doubled since June of 2012. As a result of this rise in usage for mobile devices, businesses now need to adapt to a customer base of mobile device users.

According to “The Mobile Economy 2013” by A.T. Kearney, 3.2 billion people use mobile communications. The trend is shifting from traditional desktop — and even laptop usage — to more portable devices, like smartphones and tablets.

In light of these shifting sands, RHUB stands ready to assist your business or organization into making a smooth transition from a stationary office setup to an always-on- the-move workforce. Meetings are no longer confined to just one stationary location; business is now conducted through a Webcasting company like RHUB, whose Web conferencing capabilities will connect your staff with other remote participants from around the country or around the world!
