HD Video Conferencing for Managers
WebConference.com™ Expedites Project Management
The ability to make fast decisions is essential in delivering a project to specification within time and on budget. However, the internationalisation of many projects coupled with a greater emphasis on outsourcing has meant project managers must supervise an ever-increasing number of dispersed and external stakeholders. This can dramatically affect their ability to respond to the many situations that can arise during a project.
WebConference.com™ enable project management teams to meet virtually with full video-audio-visual interaction, irrespective of their multiple locations. These solutions work by allowing one team member to securely share their desktop and its content in ad-hoc or scheduled meetings with their colleagues, and allow anyone to access and contribute to the information in real time. This ability is enhanced through live video and audio conferencing, so the team members can see and hear each other while looking at the same screen.
Faster Decision Making and Issues Response
Empowering project managers with WebConference.com™ enables them to work directly with team members in real time. They can host spontaneous, interactive meetings with regional or internationally based team members to extract status updates or overcome obstacles. The ability of a team to collaborate on a single record vastly reduces the risk of version control issues that can arise when multiple team members contribute in a team meeting. When coupled with the ability to share leader control of an online meeting with a co-moderator if necessary, these technologies streamline project administration, and minimise the impact of interruptions during meetings.
Interactive Video-Enabled Meetings
Interactive video-based meetings add significant value to a live project management meeting. WebConference.com™ includes multi-video display, which allow a number of simultaneous participants to see each other in real time video windows enabling the face-to-face communication. The ability to have face-to-face exchanges, seeing gestures and expressions increases the effectiveness of communication and can assist in building team spirit, making for better online meetings.
Reducing Planning, Implementation and Evaluation Costs
The ability to host effective virtual meetings greatly reduces the impact of travel costs on a team budget. Team members no longer need to travel as often to meet with other team members, customers or suppliers to assess the project specifications, provide milestone updates or review the final outcome. In addition to the direct costs of travel, hours of otherwise unproductive time is recouped.
Integrating Web Conferencing into Your Project Management Tools
When evaluating a web conferencing technology, project management teams should seek a flexible solution that integrates with other communication technologies. WebConference.com™ can integrate seamlessly with project management software and plug directly into the popular telephone and instant messaging programs such as e-mail and scheduling solutions like Microsoft Outlook. Such integration means users can start instant web conferences directly from their project management tools and dynamically update their team's Outlook calendars with full details of planned web conference meetings.
