The most precious asset of today’s successful business leaders is their time. Numerous studies have shown that most of that time is reportedly spent in meetings, and yet more than 50% of participants feel that time is often wasted. So much so that they would prefer to collaborate almost any other way.
Cisco WebEx™ recently surveyed more than 800 knowledge workers about their conferencing experiences, and the results were surprising.
Although the survey participants reported they spend more time in meetings than any other form of communication, only 1 in 10 prefer to interact via conferencing. Why? The other 9 cited three major issues: required participants not showing up, not having clear agenda, and a lack of accomplishing goals/tasks. But this doesn’t have to be the case! These are all issues that a modern web conferencing solution, such as Cisco WebEx, can fix.
With Cisco WebEx, scheduling engaging and collaborative meetings with your attendees is as simple as a click of the mouse. Wherever you are, whenever you’d like, Cisco WebEx will bring your entire team together with ease. Once in your personally customizable virtual meeting room, all of your participants view the same information at the same time, while still being able to see each other face-to-face via webcam. In addition, your team will have access to a robust list of features, including white boarding, Q&A, polling, and more.
For those working out of the office, Cisco WebEx is available on smartphones and tablets, allowing your team to build stronger relationships and get more work done regardless of their location. Cisco WebEx also offers the ability for you to record your meeting, so you and your participants can revisit the material at your leisure. This is a valuable feature because it allows those who were unable to attend your meeting (such as sick, mobile, or geographically dispersed workers in multiple time zones) to view the exact same material, just as if they were there live.
When executed properly, virtual conferences can energize your participants, tap the full range of their talents, and deliver powerful and effective results – all while saving you money!
