The Virtual Meeting Service
As companies become more geographically dispersed there is a clear need for virtual
meetings to make dispersed teams as productive and teams based in the same office.
Audio and web conferencing solutions have been tried for communications
dispersed teams. However, they lack the energy
of face-to face meetings. Meetings need to be face to face so that people can read the body language. It is estimated that 55% of communications is no verbal and you need to see the speaker to fully comprehend the speakers point of view. Equally you need to see who you are speaking to in order to be confident they understand what you are saying, or often to know that they are even listening.
Traditional video conferencing solves this problem for employees in remote offices,
not for home or tele-workers. Now there is an alternative - a hosted virtual meeting solution
provides face to face communication using both existing video
meeting rooms and
personal computers equipped with the special software client provided.
The service from VMCI, the Virtual Meeting Company, is available on a monthly subscription basis. It lets you hold virtual meetings the way you want to. It is simple to use and
up and running
in a few hours. Users can make person-to-person video calls or join
meetings using either their personal computers
existing video room system. In addition to the video conferencing element, the service also includes all the data sharing and collaboration tools currently available from web conferencing services. This service provides all the capabilities you need for communication between dispersed teams.
