There are several very good reasons for considering web conferencing, web casting and other virtual communications services including:
- Avoiding costly travel. Virtual conferencing solutions can save your company's budget. Web conferencing offers you the opportunity to save money, save time and avoid the aggravation of air travel. "Don’t travel if you don’t need to; it’s a mess out there, folks".
- Deliver your information or message easily, efficiently and economically.
For example you could host a video conference for up to five people. Alternate between seeing all five participants and showing a PowerPoint presentation and conclude you conference with a custom survey. All of this can be purchased and today's rates for about $200 for a one-hour conference with VOIP audio. Compare to at least $5000 in travel costs and hours of your employee's travel planning time and you'll see just how valuable a desktop web conferencing solution can be.
