Web conferencing may be a good idea for small businesses looking to connect with remote locations
Recession or not, small businesses looking to trim budgets may be using web conferencing to connect with clients, suppliers and other remote offices.
Just like the web allowed businesses to set up shop outside major metropolitan areas, online conference tools - including sharing presentations - now help small businesses connect from a distance.
A CNN Money article touts the benefits of web conferencing for companies that typically engage in extensive travel. By hosting first-time meetings online rather than in person, companies may cut costs while engaging new business.
The article says that it’s important to implement a web conferencing system that meets your small business’ needs with respect to number of users and features but at the same time has a solid connectivity record.
A variety of tools spanning a large price range are now on the market, says CNN Money.
If web conferencing itself as a service is not enough for small business owners on the go, have no fear. CNET News reports that web conferencing providers are deploying technology to access online meetings directly from a smartphone.
