With vast amount of service providers that are available today, it’s not always easy to find one that best fills bill for your particular web conferencing needs. Each one claims to be biggest, best or least expensive, and all will try to convince you that their particular plan is one that makes most sense for your business. Sometimes you’ll be victim of a hard sell by those who are skilled in art of diverting attention away from your questions and, before you know it, focus is on a set of features that you may have no use for at all.
In other cases, there are hidden fees that are peppered throughout contract which you might not readily notice until you’ve fallen into buy-in trap. How, then, are you supposed to find best service provider to handle your web conferencing? Here are some handy tips that you should keep in mind when you go shopping for such services.
Multiple Location Participants – If you have key people in distant lands that will need to come into web conferencing loop, remember to keep this in mind when shopping for a web conferencing package. If a service provider attempts to impose strict limitations on this type of scenario, then this isn’t one for you.
Compare Prices – Since most web conferencing providers utilize same software or equipment from same manufacturers, it stands to reason that pricing structures should be similar. If one or more of them come in way above mark, this should tell you something about integrity of company. In short, move on to another provider.
Review Pricing Plans – Though many providers require to be paid on a rate-per-person schedule, there are those who will offer same web conferencing services for a flat rate. This is ideal for companies with a number of participants. If you’re given option of paying a flat monthly fee for unlimited web conferences, so much better.
