On October 28, Verizon started selling the iPad, which got me thinking about the tablet becoming part of the new business toolkit. More and more we hear about companies that are replacing laptops with tablets for their mobile workforce. And while the workforce is on the go and able to be more mobile than ever, there will always be online meetings to attend.
Traditionally when we think of online meetings or web conferences, the term brings up thoughts about using solutions and applications created for the PC environment. But now that the tablet is on the rise, consider the new world of opportunities that has been introduced for meeting while “on the go.”
Online web meeting solutions more and more are providing features compatible with tablets which allow for online meetings to be conducted without the need for the traditional PC environment. Some solutions do not require buying or downloading an application, making it a simple click-to-meet solution.
With the tablet, meeting participants are no longer chained to their desks for an Internet connection or maneuvering for the lone electric socket in the café or airport lounge to power up their laptop in order to join online meetings.
So as your business toolkit changes, is your online meeting solution compatible with tablet technologies?
