  • What does this tech do that a phone conference doesn’t do?– Solutions include functionality for sharing screens, shared whiteboards, transferring files, audio integration, and video conferencing. Other considerations would include support for a variety of devices: Windows, Mac, tablets, and phones.

 

  • What products are out there?– The most popular solutions include Citrix GoToMeeting, WebEx, and Adobe Connect. If your organization uses Office 365, their Teams solution is a great option.

  • An option that won’t break the bank.– So, what if you’re on a tight budget and your needs are pretty basic? We tested and now use the free solution from Meeting Burner (meetingburner.com). The interface is straight forward and coordinating meetings with members of the team was quite easy. Some of the limitations include: only 10 attendees for a single meeting, you can only share the host screen, does not include VoIP, and you cannot record sessions. They have upgrade options that will include these and more features for $39.95/Mo. As of this article, none of their solutions were supported on mobile devices.
