Online Video is an Effective Remote Meeting Tool

Are you planning to travel for business over the holidays? Be prepared because the prices for airlines tickets are going up 7% to 18%.
You can also expect to have more crowded flights and longer lines checking in. According to the US Bureau of Transportation Statistics, “airlines are at a 10 year high of packing the planes”.

So, what are your alternatives to spending time in hotels and airline terminals?

Collaborative Meetings

With new flash-based collaboration solutions you can share documents, applications and even incorporate items on your desktop. Your meetings are able to include whiteboards, chats, and application sharing utilities on high quality webinars that allow you to present with distinct professionalism.

Video Messaging

Video is, by far, the most successful way to give your message impact. You can easily create a personal video message while incorporating PowerPoint slides and media clips and email them to your clients and prospective clients.
With video messaging you are able to easily run a live webinar and produce an active, creative presentation that will be remembered. Research has shown that a shorter, more connected video message is very effective for communications because the person on the other end can see your face and hear you talking directly to them. If you then add videos of customer testimonials and product shots it can become a convincing box of goods.

Large Group Webcasting

Cater to a larger enterprise group with a solution that enables you to schedule, produce and manage your own webcast events. It is possible to use streaming video and audio during this larger, broadcast style meeting. Webcasting eliminates the need for connecting large pieces of equipment that are difficult to move or set up.
The arrival of streaming media is an advantageous addition for corporate education.
It eliminates travel, removes time restrictions and distance issues and is cost-effective and convenient as a dispersed audience method of involvement.
