Gone are the days of only IT companies using online meetings for collaboration when the group is spread out. St. Louis area small businesses are starting to realize the benefits behind using online collaboration tools.
The business world is evolving and there are many reasons why a company should use online meeting tools, but first and foremost make sure that the need is there for your particular business. Technology companies can provide assistance when making the decision to use online meeting tools for your St. Louis small business.
There are particular questions you should ask yourself when deciding if you want to use online meetings as part of your work strategy. Things like are your employee’s always on the go? Do you work with many other companies or vendors to provide your product or service outside your local area?
Even if you answered both of these questions yes, online meetings may still not be the right fit for your company. You also must make sure that the company’s personality matches the style that online meetings use. Your team might just not like the idea of seeing each other on a computer screen from different locations.
There are many different options out there for online meeting solutions such as Citrix’s GoToMeeting or Cisco’s Web Ex to name a few. For the most part the solutions available provide many of the same core benefits. Some of the specialty features of each product are what separate it apart and can help make the decision of which one to go with much easier.
If your company is in need of help when deciding if it wants to use online meetings or deciding which features are most important you can certainly contact Tecvar.
