When you work for a conferencing and collaboration company you take for granted having all the meeting tools you need right at your fingertips. I have peace of mind that at a moment’s notice I have a conferencing services and meeting solutions that I can use whenever I want, from wherever I want. More and more companies are making a meeting solution part of their employee tool kit: laptop, mobile device, file share, instant messaging, online meeting solutions, check!
My husband, on the other hand, is not as fortunate. He described to me the painful methods his team was using to record a training session for a group of co-workers in India. It involved audio conferencing and a video camera over his shoulder recording what he was bringing up on his computer. Because he wasn’t 100% confident the free web service he was using would record his training correctly, the tapes would either be sent to India or somehow hosted online for the trainees to download. He just kept nodding in agreement as I rattled off all the time and expense that this free solution really cost him.All of this so his company could save time and expense of using a solution created exactly for the purpose of remote training.
