In today’s increasingly global business atmosphere, leaders are spending more time than ever collaborating and innovating across continents. This often requires travel to get key decision makers in front of each other. At the same time, there is a green business movement to reduce the carbon footprint in an effort to preserve natural resources and the earth for future generations. Until the emergence of web conferencing services, these two factors worked against each other.

Web Conferencing Service Makes Collaboration Easy

If you want your business to 'go green' why not nix the travel and instead opt for virtual meetings facilitated through the use of ReadyTalk's web conferencing software? There are multiple ways any business can benefit from the use of virtual meetings to facilitate collaboration and improve efficiency, while simultaneously being responsible for the environment. Here are just a few:

virtual meetings for green businessesVirtual meetings provide accessibility to all. By using an intuitive web conferencing service like ReadyTalk, your business can make sure all members of your team can access the meeting from anywhere there is Internet service available. There is no special software required for participants, just a web browser. That translates to increased participation and collaboration overall. This benefit alone can help your business to become more efficient as communication improves.

Reduces the need for electric-hogging projectors. There’s nothing more annoying or time consuming than trying to run a meeting with a projector. Additionally, projectors use a high wattage bulb which eats up electricity. Instead, virtual meetings can easily be facilitated by way of the web conferencing software right on your computer. This makes it easier for any one in your business to start a virtual meeting and host it successfully. It also means there's no fighting to find an available conference room with a working projector.

Provides participant engagement tools in real time. Hosting a meeting can be difficult if there is little participating from attendees or there is a large amount of material to cover in a short period of time. However, a conferencing service like ReadyTalk can make it easy to get participants engaged through online file and screen sharing, chat capabilities, and even survey response tracking tools.

Records the meeting for documentation archives.  A virtual meeting can be a great way to document the discussion and provide informational materials for afterwards. This is helpful if some of your team cannot attend at the scheduled time, or if you have follow up training to conduct. Use ReadyTalk conferencing services to seamlessly record and edit the meeting.

Modern businesses rely on web conferencing software to conduct meetings virtually, so that they can become more efficient and mindful of the environment. ReadyTalk can provide the web conferencing solution your business needs to experience the best of both worlds. 

What is your company doing to support the green business movement?
