================== ARTICLE START ==================
Several years ago I was in a computer store and a salesman was
trying to sell me something, in fact, he was trying to sell me
anything that he could. I said that I had the latest computer
and really didn�t need anything more. Then he showed me a web
camera and I thought for a few seconds, but I really couldn�t
figure out why I would need that gadget.
Now things have changed and that salesman could get the sale
from me, because the time is right to start conducting online
web and video conferences. Here are a few reasons why the age
of web conferencing has truly arrived:
1. Transportation costs are rising and web conferencing is one
way to conduct meetings without getting into a car or plane.
Imagine how much money you could save if you were able to hold
a staff meeting with your distant branches without paying for
fuel, hotels and all the other costs associated with outside
2. The cost of conducting a meeting outside a main office is
much higher than you can calculate by only adding up the
When you leave your office or home, you have to put everything
aside and subject yourself to delays in traffic, airports,
trains and taxis. Sure, you can take your laptop with you, but
are you really as productive using a laptop in a busy airport
as you are while you are in your own office? Web conferencing
allows you to get back to your other work as soon as the online
3. Web conferencing allows you to meet face-to-face with your
colleagues no matter where they are.
Globalization is not just a slogan. Business, educational and
social organizations are now working in increasingly wider
networks which are spread throughout the world. If you have
clients, employees, representatives or students in another
country or in a distant location, think how convenient it would
be to be able to turn on your computer and hold a meeting with
them. Well, this is not a distant dream, it is possible right
now using existing web and video conferencing technology
4. Online conferencing allows you to give support and help to
clients without sending out a technician or a representative.
If you are selling a product or service that must be supported,
then think of the improvement in customer relations and
reduction in costs that you could achieve if you could
effectively meet online with your client. Today�s conferencing
technology even allows your staff to �take over� the computer
of a client and demonstrate how an application works.
5. Video and web conferencing is now extremely affordable, easy
to use and very functional.
Gone are the days of proprietary systems and cameras. Today you
can use standard PCs and inexpensive web cameras to conduct your
meetings. The online meetings do not require equipment or
software that is not already found in most offices. In
addition, several companies now offer conferencing services at
a price that even individuals and small organizations can
If you need to hold meetings, or meet with staff and colleagues
who work in far-flung locations then you should consider online
conferencing. The spread of online meetings could change the
way we all work, just as the widespread adoption of email did
fifteen years ago.
