Web Conferencing Systems That Can Save SMBs Time And Money


Small businesses, generally speaking, have more interaction with individuals outside of their companies than do enterprises, where a large number of employees simply interact with other internal employees behind a firewall. Often, that interaction means face-to-face meetings.

But with today's new online Web conferencing offerings for small business, business meetings with clients and contacts can be conducted affordably, on the spot. These services can resold by VARs to customers, and also used by solution providers themselves. In addition, educators can use these Web conferencing meeting services to teach students, while human resources departments can use Web conferencing to streamline employee training.

Following are four popular Web conferencing systems. Each have subtle differences and advantages, and all offer free trials so you (and your customers) can jump online, rather than onboard, as soon as you like.
