Although many Web conferencing options are out of reach costwise, Netspoke Conferencing has an affordable offering that’s simple to use and handy to access.
For most small businesses, putting together a conference goes something like this: Call people into your office, then have the meeting. But sometimes, bringing in clients or involving far-flung sales people makes those clumsy speakerphone meetings a wee bit less professional than you’d like. The answer is Web conferencing, which can be accessed from anywhere, and makes your presentation look pretty slick at the same time. Although many Web conferencing options are out of reach costwise, Netspoke Conferencing has an affordable offering that’s simple to use and handy to access. The company boasts options like application sharing and other collaboration tools, and audio conferencing that doesn’t require reservations.
If you’ve got a real shindig coming up, you might want to consider its Netspoke Ambassador Event Conferencing, which has operator assistance. I took a whirl through the company’s collaboration features, and suddenly wished I had a company to run, just so I could use it more often. There are a bevy of options for participants, which makes presentation tailoring easy. For example, some of the collaboration features draw meeting participants into the discussion with virtual whiteboard features and live chat.
You can access a content library if you want to save all this good stuff and refer to it in later meetings. Participants not as Web-savvy as you’d like? Don’t worry–there are simple and advanced modes, allowing for degrees of functionality. Tailoring conferences is one of Netspoke’s strengths, and it seems that they’re eager to make your meeting personalized. Conferences can be scaled according to participant number, and invitations can be sent out in the midst of a presentation. (Hey, we forgot Joe from accounting-get him in here!)
The service makes sense mainly if you hold meetings or Web events regularly, but it’s easy to see how a company could use it a few times and get hooked. For small businesses looking to gain more meeting power without investing in heavy-duty applications, Netspoke is waiting for you to dial in.
