We have a lot of people coming to us asking exactly what the advantages are of online Web / Video conferencing are and why they should switch over. The answer is simple: efficiency.
Many business owners have the misconception in mind that moving away from their traditional phone conferencing system (either in-house or from their old telecommunications provider) will make things more complicated. That they will have to have an abundance of technically savvy, that it will take forever to get their employees (much less their clients) trained on how to use it, that it will be a huge waste of time and energy.
This couldn’t be further from the truth.
In reality, online Web / Video conferencing is easy to set up, at least it is through us. It’s easier than trying to deal with clunky old phone conferencing systems. You sign up and log in to our site, start a conference, and immediately have a phone number that participants can dial into (with a security code). So if you want to run a phone conference the way that you used to, it’s all there immediately, except you can see who is connected and who isn’t. But it goes further than that. Participants can also join by clicking a link in their email, and hop on to see each other with their webcams. You can share documents with them, give presentations, show each others screens. You can do pretty much anything that you can in an in-person meeting which would be impossible over a phone call.
But the complicated download, installation and setup process? With us, there isn’t one. Our entire conferencing system is based in the cloud. You may have heard that term talked around. Without going into a lot of unnecessary details, in our case it means that you log into our site with your web browser, start the conference from there, and you’re already set up. No downloads, no installation, no wasted time. And it works exactly the same way for your clients. It also means that you can upload your contacts, your documents, your other important files, and schedule future conferences, in a way that is accessible from any computer that you want to use. That means you can move from one desktop computer to another, to your laptop, to your tablet PC, and still have access to everything. No complicated syncing or setup required. Gone are the days of emailing files to yourself to have them on multiple computers, or having a million “Re: attachment” emails for updated version. You’re up and ready to go immediately.
So try out All Conferencing and compare it to your current setup. See if it’s actually easier, we’re confident enough that it will be that your first conference is free.
