Online meetings (web conferencing) can help a social business activate networks of people to make faster expertise-based decisions, speed up business processes and address customer needs. Online meetings allow rich social collaboration within professional networks around the world—inside or outside the enterprise without travel costs. Projects can be improved with insight from stakeholders and can be completed more quickly when teams don't have to wait for e-mail exchanges or travel to face-to-face meetings. You can lower telephony and audio conferencing expenses and reduce or eliminate expensive recurring fees for hosted web conferencing services.
