Often when you start working, you have all your meetings in-person. As the workplace continues to change, and employers start to embrace and encourage flexible working, meetings start to move onto conference calls, screen share or both (where you use conference calling for your audio communication and screen share for your visuals).
The great thing about conference calls and screen share is that it enables teams to stay connected regardless of where they’re working from. It means that rather than spending hours commuting for one meeting, conference call and screen share tools can be used to work on projects and share updates without leaving the office.
But where to next? What we’ve found is that our customers start using our conference call service, then move onto adding the free screen share tool, then naturally progress to web meetings. The reason being, that people see the value in the tools enabling colleagues and customers to easily communicate with each other as if they were face-to-face. It helps them to stay productive by being able to record the whole meeting, keep meeting actions for follow up tasks that need to be completed and easily see and interact with people on the call.
But why do people move towards web meetings? The reality is, once you get a handle on how to use conference calls and screen share, there are limitations that web meeting tools can solve. Web meetings often have instant chat, whiteboard, video, and options of how participants can dial in. This could be dialling in via a conference call service, or via VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol).
Web meetings work because it’s essentially an all-in-one solution. People understand that there’s a need to keep in touch with colleagues and clients when they can’t always meet in person and conference calls and screen share help to bridge that gap. But web meetings – whether it’s a video or web conference, allow employees to work as a team by utilising the tools and features that the web meeting has to offer.
