It is worth bearing in mind that, when you are deciding which web conferencing application to utilize, none of applications currently available will do everything well.
Each system has its own strengths and weaknesses and it is therefore important for you to identify what you hope to gain from your web conferencing application. The first step you should take is to draw up a list of essential features - decide what most important aspects of web conferencing are to you and what you hope to gain from your system.
By identifying what is most important to you, you can narrow down your field of selection to those vendors who are supplying a product that most closely matches your requirements. By immediately discarding those that do not match your criteria, you will find yourself considering a far more manageable number of applications.
Communication: Meetings, Webcasts and Webinars For example, if key function you want your web conferencing application to perform is that of communication then you require an application that will allow you to exchange with others. An application that has capability to host meetings, transmit webcasts and hold training seminars will be required.
Different web conferencing applications have different capabilities, some allowing you to invite hundreds of delegates to your seminar, others allowing a maximum of say, ten. Levels of interaction vary too so be very clear about what functions you will need your application to be able to perform.
Before investing in your new system you should thoroughly review exactly what each provider is offering to ensure it meets with your requirements.
