Learn the questions to ask when purchasing a web conferencing solution.
The market for collaboration technologies has exploded in recent years. Wainhouse Research forecasts that by 2016, the global Web Conferencing Market will reach nearly $2.5 billion in revenue, with a five-year compound annual growth rate of 6%. The flexibility and availability of these tools are facilitating more efficient business across the globe, tearing down geographical barriers, and giving companies of all sizes the ability to shorten sales cycles, reach into new and emerging markets and above all, collaborate more effectively.
A web conferencing solution, like any software acquisition, must balance any number of pros and cons. By taking collaboration to the cloud, companies can ease deployment burdens and get the right conferencing tool in the hands of their employees faster and more effectively. Coupling a secure, cloud-based back end with an intuitive, easy-to-use product can dramatically lessen the time IT teams spend on both implementation and support issues.
