How a Financial Services Firm Transformed Their Business with One Simple Change

Trust Company of Vermont (TCV) is a highly regarded trust and investment firm based, as the name suggests, in the Green Mountain State. Although the company is headquartered in Burlington, they operate an additional four branches spread across the rural Vermont area, providing individual investors, companies, and non-profits with a wide range of financial services. As an employee-owned and -managed firm, TCV puts an emphasis on maintaining face-to-face relationships between investment managers and their clients, something that can be difficult given the rugged, mountainous terrain of rural Vermont – to say nothing of the region’s famously unpredictable winters. The company needed a better way not just to connect with geographically disparate clients, but between their own branches as well. Simply put, they needed a video conferencing system.

 

The firm knew that they wanted a high-definition video conferencing system, but were disappointed by all the low-fi options that came across their desks, many of which lacked even basic lip-synchronization and security features.  Some were so bad that investment managers found themselves resorting to making telephone calls to avoid wonky sound glitches. The situation was untenable – but a solution was closer to home than they initially realized.

 

A local law firm was seeing great success with their Lifesize video conferencing package, and passed the information along to TCV. A Lifesize Icon system demo through Corporate Data & Voice Solutions convinced the company to invest in a system of their own, which they coupled with touchscreen endpoints in every branch – and they haven’t looked back since.

Surprising Benefits of Video Conferencing

 

“Video conferencing has made a positive impact on the company, both internally and externally,” writes TCV principal and portfolio manager David DeBellis in a recent Wall Street and Technology byline. “With video conferencing, our clients can connect with their preferred investment manager no matter where they may be, for a level of convenience and flexibility that we never had before.” The intimacy video conferencing fosters regardless of geographic proximity is absolutely vital in a field in which trust is everything, and Lifesize’s robust security features ensure that this understanding doesn’t come at the cost of confidentiality.

 

The employees and managers of TCV are constantly finding new ways to use their Icon systems. Now, in addition to using the solution to discuss financial matters with clients, the company has used it to schedule weekly training and strategy meetings. Employees are able to work from home more, minimizing burnout; they’re even able to check in with the office while on vacation.

 

“It’s been a great way to develop tighter bonds not only with our clients but internally as well,” DeBellis summed up. “We feel more connected than ever before, which has led to a tighter, more cohesive business overall.”

Simplify Your Life in 5 Easy Steps

Along with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Harvard School of Public Health, the news organization NPR conducted a nationwide poll about the sources of stress in Americans’ lives. Everything was covered from people’s personal experiences with stress, how they cope and the causes of stress on a daily basis.

 

After questioning over 2,500 adults across the country, the study concluded that nearly half of the people surveyed had a major stressful event in the last year, and that health concerns were one of the most common sources. Other sources included finances, work problems, family issues and self image.

 

nprIn honor of “Simplify Your Life Day,” we decided to tackle some of the more common sources stress and provide some ideas on how you can overcome these obstacles to become a happier, healthier and more relaxed person.

 

1. Get in control of your finances…now: It’s never too late to grab the reigns of your personal finances. Have you ever been too afraid to check your bank account to see the balance staring back at you? Have you ever been surprised when your credit card is declined? Do you know how many credit cards you have open right now? Do you know your credit score? I know, I know, I am stressing you out just asking all of these questions. But the good news is that apps like Mint and CreditKarma are completely free, and help with you those pesky questions about savings and credit.

 

2. Prioritize at work: When you have looming deadlines along with more and more projects piling on top of you, it can be an incredibly stressful situation. Sometimes, your manager might not even be aware of how much work is coming your way. It is important to communicate your needs to your manager, or perhaps your HR department, when things are getting out of control. Your manager can help you prioritize what is most important, or bring on additional resources if your job is too big for one person.

 

3. Forgive, forget and bury the hatchet: Stress in your personal life can stem from unresolved issues with partners, friends and family members. Sometimes, the weight of these events can filter into other areas of your life and negatively impact you in ways you may not have expected. Sure, there are some issues that take a lot of time to heal but sometimes it’s just a matter of accepting someone’s apology or offering your own. If there are no amends to be made, follow the advice of the Oscar-winning song from the movie Frozen, “let it go.”

 

stress

 

4. Get your health in check: The NPR study concluded that illness and disease is one major source of stress in our lives as Americans. Although some health issues are unavoidable, others can be prevented with healthy living. If you have been meaning to get in shape, quit smoking or eat better, now is the time to do it. If you haven’t been to the doctor for a check-up in some time, go ahead and schedule an appointment. If you know your risk factors, you can take proactive steps to steer clear of certain illnesses.

 

5. Surround yourself with those who make you happy: Instead of coping with stress by sleeping too much or drowning yourself in unhealthy snacks, consider spending your time with those who don’t stress you out: partners, friends, family and loved ones. Technology like video conferencing from Lifesize makes work/life balance easier by having the ability to join a meeting from wherever you are, on any device you want. Take a break from the office, go home and work more flexibly

5 Ways to Use Video Conferencing to Support Your IT Organization

Nobody knows better than Information Technology (IT) professionals the importance of staying ahead of the curve when it comes to new technology, which is why this industry has had so much success with IT departments of all shapes and sizes. With video conferencing, you can help you take advantage of the latest in video technology, streamlining the communication process, increasing efficiency and allowing you to do more work in less time. How can we do that?

1. Collaborate with colleagues around the globe: DevFactory is a software development factory that produces streamlined software to do everything from fix bug issues to improve performance and beyond. They’ve deployed Lifesize video conferencing to eliminate the mounting costs and unpredictability of traditional outsourcing, bringing together more than 40 disparately located supply partners and 600 contractors without the need for frequent travel.

 

2. Attend distance learning seminars: If your IT team needs to spruce up on the latest practices in the industry or learn more about a certain piece of hardware or software, consider using video to attend classes remotely. Likewise, if you have to train your staff from disparate locations, streaming and recording technology would be a useful tool.

 

3. Facilitate employee communications: Harris Stratex Networks, Inc., a leading global provider of wireless solutions with clients in 135 countries, has used its Lifesize endpoints to collaborate between offices, reducing its travel needs by 30 percent in just six months. Rather than having to make the time and financial commitment of worldwide travel, colleagues are able to communicate with each other face-to-face with a quick push of a button.

 

4. Manage quality control: If your IT team is managing data centers all over the world, quality control is of the utmost importance. Instead of traveling to all of the locations or relying on phoeos alone, consider a video call. Modern video conferencing solutions offer mobile device compatibility, so you can have a call on your iPhone and take the camera throughout the entire space.

 

5. Stream, record, and archive meetings and more for future playback: Whether you are having a team meeting or a training session, video conferencing makes recording your meetings easy with the touch of a button. That way, if a team member is unable to join or you have folks in various time zones, you can ensure that no one will miss a critical call.

 

 

Think it is time for your IT team to look more into video conferencing? Lifesize offers the very latest in cloud-based hosting and scalability, reducing your IT workload and helping you get the most from a limited staff and budget.

ezTalks: 7 Skype for Business Alternatives to Suite Different Needs

Skype for Business provides communication services on many platforms, not just the desktop. It integrates basic chat services, HD video, and phone call capability for both incoming and outgoing calls in a familiar Skype wrapper. The desktop software creates virtual conferencing places where the team comes together across a variety of platforms and software.

Of course, it is linked to Microsoft's Office tools as well, such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook for calendaring. Outlook calendars are the key ingredient, allowing users to set their current status and availability, so meetings can be coordinated properly across time zones. PowerPoint slides can be presented online, too. Document sharing for financial spreadsheets, legal documents and contracts, etc. is also easily facilitated by the software. The instant messaging and collaborative whiteboard options create options for brainstorming, problem solving and discussion, as well as collaborative editing through the Office suite.

skype for business alternative

Why Does Skype for Business Fall Short?

Skype for Business has issues that will force many small businesses to reconsider its use within their organization, especially if you're relying on teams in two of the biggest markets in the world. In China, clients are expected to install a modified version which monitors all text messages and voice calls, even from outside China. So sharing sensitive topics, IP security, and technical documentation with local clients in China represents a real threat to companies who may find their important communications ending up in competitors' hands. In India, it's no longer possible to originate Skype calls to landlines or mobile so contacting people via Skype for online meetings is difficult unless everyone is using their data connections.

For technical issues, users also report logging-in glitches, sharing screen failures, non-message delivery, slow attachment upload, slow software start-up times, resource-hogging on the host computer, to name but a few. For small companies who don't have an IT team on-call the software presents real challenges, even on the Mac desktop.

7 Skype for Business Alternatives

So what's a busy executive to do? Well, this article will introduce seven alternatives to Skype for Business: Google Hangouts, ezTalks Cloud Meeting, Facebook Messenger, Apple's FaceTime, join.me, TrueConf and Appear.in. Is any of them a suitable Skype Business alternative? Read on.

1. Google Hangouts

For everyone who uses Gmail, Google Hangouts resides in the bottom left of the main screen. For iOS and Android phone users, there are apps available in the relevant app store that can be installed. There is also a web page service that connects to the browser for cross-platform connections. Non-Chrome browsers will need an extension. On handsets, Google Duo replaces the Hangouts apps. Hangouts provides three ways for connecting with people: chat messaging, phone calls, and Goolge video conferencing callwith up to 10 users. Chat messaging and video conferencing call can be set up for multiple recipients.

Hangouts limits interaction via phone networks, so there is no way to have a group call over a phone network, nor can a phone caller participate in meetings. This is a real problem if you are trying to host an online meeting where internet connectivity is poor, but the telephone network is solid. Additionally, there are no real capabilities to schedule, manage or record online meetings. All in all, if you're looking for a Skype for Business alternative client, keep reading.

2. ezTalks Cloud Meeting

The second option that we look at is ezTalks Cloud Meeting which is video conferencing software which allows users to host or join any online meeting. The portability of the software means that users can create a meeting on a mobile device wherever they are. Simplified login from the Facebook or Google account means that user never have to worry about forgetting that password. 

Users are served with professional grade features for scheduling online meetings and sending reminders even across time zones. ezTalks Cloud Meeting provides users with a wide range of meeting management tools that: manage speakers and invitees; share desktops and documents, make online presentations, make annotations, and use interactive online whiteboards and allow participants to record and review proceedings.

Chat, HD video and phone calls are integrated across all major platforms. The meeting host and participants have access to granular controls for video with pinch to zoom, screen rotation, and private chat inside/outside the main meeting room.

ezTalks Cloud Meeting also provides the most generous free plan for up to 100 people with unlimited meetings. ezTalks Cloud Meeting is available on all major platforms and via browser. The communication is encrypted as well for high-grade security. But for the fast growing company, it's the only alternative to Skype for Business that allows for massive meetings on its paid plans. The Pro Package allows for 500 participants, and the Entreprise Package can scale right up to 10,000 in-meeting participants.

3. Facebook Messenger

Messenger is slowly evolving into something that is a part of the Facebook family of apps, but with its own distinct identity. As a way to reach friends and family, it is an effective platform wherever they are online. Recent additions have boosted its capabilities, including HD video, call out to landlines, and group call. In Japan, Facebook even functions as a business tool among business people.

But there are a number of obstacles to using Messenger for business meetings. First, not everyone likes to mix the personal with business, business people may not be willing to share their personal Facebook details with employees, contractors or customers. Security is also an issue: shared documents that are confidential could be delivered outside the closed network through deliberate or accidental means. It's also not possible to schedule meetings, share whiteboards, or record proceedings. In all, it's just not a practical Skype Business alternative.

4. join.me

Join.me is part of the LogMeIn family of team collaboration software. It is a meeting and online collaboration system that uses the freemium model for providing services. The base service is its desktop app, which connects to mobile apps for the most popular mobile services. Ideal for webinars, screen sharing tools make it possible, but annotation, passing, recording and sharing webinars are all part of the premium plans.

Simplicity is its focus: ease of meeting set-up, invitations and notifications helps speed users along. No complex software installation is needed, either. Free plans are limited to 10 attendees, 5 video streams, screen sharing and internet-based calling. The Pro plan raises this to 50 attendees with 10 streams, but it adds audio conferencing, meeting management tools and a productive feature set. There is now a third-tier, which enhances the available tools with 250 attendees.

For getting started, join.me is one of the easiest tools, but a fast-growing company will easily outgrow its service. Additionally, reports of crashes and problems with the audio setup, operation and administration of join.me accounts all hinder its adoption as a great Skype alternative for business everywhere.

5. Apple FaceTime for iOS/Mac

Apple's own entry to online video conferencing is called FaceTime. It's a high quality experience for the world of iOS or Mac. FaceTime offers an easy way to connect with users for HD video or audio-only calls on both Wi-Fi networks and mobile networks. The calls are encrypted for security end-to-end and quality is high for both audio and video calls. FaceTime is also available on the Mac, iPhone, and iPad.

However, its crucial limitation is that you cannot connect with the hundreds of millions of non-iOS users out there. There is no way to make either a video or audio-only call to any Windows, Linux or Android user via the FaceTime platform. Currently, FaceTime also doesn't offer a group video chat feature either. So hosting any kind of team meeting is impossible. Meeting scheduling, recording, whiteboards, screen sharing, etc. are all currently impossible, too. FaceTime is just not a powerful Skype Business alternative for video conferencing tool for the professional user.

6. TrueConf

TrueConf is another desktop-based video conferencing solution that aims to bring the desktop together with the cloud and mobile world for video conferences rooms, and workplaces. TrueConf provides an array of co-working tools to chat, record, present, and share the meeting space right on the desktop or laptop. Not only does it work cross-platform, it also integrates tightly with their server software and conference terminal. Flexible in its choice of layouts, and video resolution up to 4K, TrueConf requires a download to get started. It is simple to set up and use. Login is available via a number of social networks as well as direct login.

A few niggles have been exposed in its operations, including the limit to one device per login user which means that you cannot listen simultaneously on your computer and on a mobile device because one login is permitted only. Users should also note that the free plan is truly hobbled: only video conferencing calls up to 3 users is supported. The power comes in the TrueConf Server edition with conferencing up to only 250 members suggesting that it is a contender as a serious alternative to Skype for Business.

7. Appear.in

Appear.in offers a simple way to create an web video conference right on the browser window. Then, the host welcomes guests via the room code. Meetings can be held on the fly without creating a permanent room, or claimed by the meeting host. All chat is currently using the peer-to-peer model. Shared screens are added via a browser extension for popular browsers. No downloads are necessary for the browser-based apps to work because Appear.in supports WebRTC. The freemium model also applies here, with 8 concurrent video chats for the trial version, and 12 for the premium model.

There are limitations: no phone call capability; because of peer-to-peer connections, users will need fast network connectivity and a powerful computer for processing so much video, and Mac users have to install a separate desktop browser, because Safari is not supported. Otherwise Appear.in supports Chrome, Firefox and Opera on all platforms, with iOS via an app. Appear.in premium is still in beta-stage, so features required by business users are still in development. If business users require stable services, then perhaps Appear.in should not be in your list of alternatives to Skype for Business any time soon.

So What Tool Is a Real Skype for Business Alternative?

The market space for online video conferencing for business professionals and entrepreneurs is exciting with a lot of options coming to the table, the less professional, everyday solutions quickly show their limitations for commercial usage. FaceTime, Messenger and Hangouts suffer from serious limitations on their technology that make even the free price unpalatable.

Professional Skype for Business alternatives are attractive and provide some degree of professional grade functionality. Only ezTalks Cloud Meeting covers the ground between the startup, fast growing company and small or medium enterprise.

This ability to interact virtually saves every enterprise the travel expenses and human costs by replacing tedious business travel with online video conferences. So, if you need to be in two places at the same time, you should choose ezTalks Cloud Meeting for your Skype for Business alternative client.

ezTalks: Do You Know All about Conferencing?

Web conferencing enables its users to hold live meetings, conferencing, presentations and trainings with the internet as its medium. With this service you can choose real-time point-to-point communications or multicast communications from one sender to many receivers. The basic idea of this communication platform is to stream data like text messages, voice or video call or chat across the wide geographically located places.

Web Conferencing Definition

According to the definition given by Cambridge Dictionary, web conference is a system by which many computer users can communicate with each other all at the same time using webcams over the internet.

So what is a web conference?

It enables voice and video conferencing. Support screen annotation, polling, speaker management, chat discussions, shared whiteboards are some of the platforms that are also used. Now with the help of a web browser you get access to web browsing platforms, but to get access to all the features you need to download as well as install. The main purpose is to conduct business meetings, seminars, presentations, online education and even offer direct customer support through remote keyboard mouse control.

eztalks cloud meeting

How Web Conferencing Works

About web conferencing and how it works is simple to understand. Companies can opt to purchase conference software or carry the meeting themselves or choose a specific hosting service. If you opt for hosting services they will provide you the software and server space for conducting the meetings. In both ways you must have ample server space and bandwidth to carry out the functions effectively.

Now, depending on the type of software you can choose any of the following options:

●Slide show presentation like Power Point.
●Send pictures or videos through web cams
●Write or draw on white board and explain using a mic
●Enable screen sharing using the moderator's computer desktop
●Use audio chat to ask or reply to questions

Tools used for web video conferencing:

●XML, HTML and ASP markup
●Java scripts
●Flash animation
●Instant messaging
●Streaming audio and video

What Is Web Conferencing Used for?

If you check about web conferencing programs on the internet, you will find numerous options available to you. Chat and instant messaging is the most common form of host text-based group discussions. Higher level or more sophisticated level uses web cams and video streaming to share documents online. Some uses computer and internet based system while some use telephone based system for audio content distribution.

ezTalk is one such popular host which can enable to boost your business by connecting with over hundreds of participants. As one of the most innovative platforms for cloud video conferencing, ezTalks Cloud Meeting provides rich features, such as HD video & audio, innovative whiteboard, instant screen and content sharing, cross platform chat, control and management, recording and playback, and so on.

Understanding a conference bridge

Now a conference bridge allows the participants to be connected over the phone call. This requires a virtual meeting room and a phone line to make the call. A meeting of such type can hold dozens of participants but in case of a three way calling you will find only a total of three participants. Companies usually prefer this method as the cost of travelling and time can be saved. And they have to just pay for the one on site meeting cost.

Features:

●For a conference bridge there will be an administrator to assign DID numbers to the respective conference room.
●Some participants can be secured by a pin number while some use a common pin number all the users.
●A graphical user interface is also used in the case of advanced conference system and allows you to see and know who has joined the conference.
●In special cases dynamic meeting rooms are also created which is for huge systems where capacity is an issue.

The Bottom Line

With the advance in technology, it has become possible for companies to create a virtual space enabling easy means of communication. This is an important requirement in the current scenario as time and money is something which is not available in plenty. Staying connected with people has also become easier and participants can join from anywhere at any time across the globe. Be it a small, start up or big business chooses web conferencing as you can start up any meeting faster than any other conferencing method. With better communication, you can find out the problems and resolve them within a short span of time. This is a very positive step as this greatly enhances the productivity of the organization.

But it has been found that small businesses are moving towards web-based conferencing platforms that do not require software download. The major reason for companies opting online meeting over traditional conferencing is the time factor which is a major concern for all.

ezTalks: Can Web Conferencing Enhances Staff Training?

Web conference training is becoming more and more popular as an alternative staff training option.(https://www.eztalks.com/video-conference/how-web-conferencing-enhances-your-staff-training.html) Currently, more than 50 percent of trainers are employing web conferencing for training their employees. Previously, many people have been relying on emails and phone calls for staff training, but this has not been as efficient as face-to-face meetings. In fact, many employers have been combining emails and phone calls with face-to-face meetings so as to achieve optimum results with their staff training.

With the rise of web conferencing providers such as ezTalks, the wave has largely shifted from emails and phone calls. This is because the web conferencing experience is very close to a face-to-face training session. In some respects, it is even better than a real life meeting.

 

So why should you incorporate web conferencing education in your staff training programs? Listed below are 5 ways in which web conferencing enhances your employee training.

1. Lowers Your Training Costs

Large companies spend a lot of money on staff training. This is especially because a large number of participants have to travel to a single point. The transport cost is eliminated in web conference training as the participants do not even have to leave their houses. All they need is a computer, laptop or smart phone and an internet connection.

With services such as ezTalks, you can host a training meeting of 100 employees online for free. With the paid plans, you can host even 10, 000 employees. Having the same number of participants in a single physical training session can be very expensive. As the employer, you will have to cater for transport, refreshments and accommodation costs for all the trainees in attendance. Carrying out the same activity online achieves the same goal without having to incur the extra expenses.

2. Gets rid of Distance Constrains

In modern day, companies can have employees from any part of the world, all thanks to the internet. Training employees from across the ocean would be impossible if we did not have web conferencing services. Instead of ignoring the whole concept of staff training because of the distance, you should simply find a web conferencing service and make your staff the best they can ever be.

3. Improves Efficiency

Using web conferencing for education gets rid of time wasters such as traveling. In the same vein, inconveniences such as lateness can be eliminated since the training session can be carried out anywhere and at any time.

In addition, many video conferencing services have extra features that can make the staff training fruitful. First, there are several live communication tools available such as quick messaging services. You can also employ tools such as power point presentations to make some points get across better.

Web conferencing services also have reminders for classes and training courses. These can help your employees remember their training sessions. Since the training is carried out online, they can also view the course materials later in case they miss the class.

Web conferencing services can not only be accessed on laptops and computers. They can also be accessed on smart phones. In fact, they can be accessed on any mobile device with an internet connection. For this reason, there are very slim chances that anyone will miss a training session.

For the trainer, the web conferencing service can help you determine the turn out through the analytics. You can therefore always adjust your training from the analysis.

4. Improves Flexibility

Unlike physical meetings, video conferences can be organized at any time. If an issue arises or needs clarification at any given moment, you can always address it at the snap of a finger. In addition, any member of the training staff can bring up their personal issues with the trainer at any given time. If they need extra help on any aspect of the training, it can be addressed as soon as possible.

A service like ezTalks can accommodate instant or scheduled meetings. With the pro version, you can also have sessions that last for as long as you need.

5. Facilitates Team Work

Web conferencing services usually have features that allow for live group and private chat, and the sharing of documents. This means that your employees can always have virtual meetings where they discuss their projects. If your service provider does not have a document sharing feature, you can incorporate a project management platform.

Conclusion

With web conferencing services, you don’t need to spend money on transport or accommodation for your staff. Everything is carried out on the internet in a simple and efficient way. All you need to do is find a suitable web conferencing service provider and sign up with the plan that best suits your situation. It is important to remember that not all web conferencing services have the same features and plans. The plan you choose needs to be able to accommodate the number of students you have, and also have the learning features you need such as document sharing.

ezTalks - Successful Web Conferencing Tips

ezTalks - Successful Web Conferencing Tips

Web conferencing is an effective, cost-efficient and convenient method of communicating and collaborating with your geographically dispersed employees and customers. Today, web conferences are available on almost any device and used for many purposes, including staff training sessions, shareholder meetings, product launches, marketing services - even interviewing potential employees.

However, even though web conferencing eliminates the hassle and costs associated with business travel, your conference will still require the same amount of forethought and effort as an in-person meeting for it to be valuable and a constructive use of time for both you and your participants. Thankfully, there are some things that you can do to help deliver engaging material that will keep your attendees focused and actively participating in your meeting. Here are some tips that will help you conduct online meetings the way you should.

web conferencing

●Ensure that the virtual environment is right for the meeting

There are different types of meetings such as management meetings, project planning meetings, creative brainstorming sessions, sales calls, client prospecting meetings and real-time video editing sessions. However, in some types of meetings, it is necessary to meet people face-to-face like important customer prospect meetings, or personal employment development discussions. If you feel the content of the meeting is right for a virtual meeting, then go for it. If you feel otherwise, go to meet your client in a face-to-face meeting.

●Know your audience

Before preparing for an online web meeting, try to know your audience. It is necessary to know your audience before a meeting as it will help you prepare the right content for the virtual meeting that can be shared with all participants. The type of application used for virtual meetings should be easy to use, just like a phone call or the click of a button. You need to ensure that the participants are familiar with web conferencing technology.

●Develop a plan and schedule for the meeting in advance

Before starting the virtual meeting, it is necessary to set rules for passing control and speaking. You can use technology that allows participants to click on a flag to ring or raise their hand in virtual presentation mode. Also set ground rules for personal chats, side-conversation chats, and broadcast fashion.

●Select the right moderator

A moderator plays an important role in defining the tone and helps keep the agenda of the meeting on track. The role of the moderator is to see that every participant has a chance to ask questions and comment on the topic. It is also the responsibility of the moderator to check whether any participant who wants to give a comment or speak can chip in. Ensure that the moderator you choose is aware of the features of web conferencing systems.

●Save the content of virtual meetings

Select a virtual meeting software with features to save different content generated during virtual meetings such as whiteboard memos, documents, notes, discussions, chats and other important content. You need to ensure that session and audio files are both saved as they can be used by colleagues who were not able to participate in the virtual meeting for any reason.

●Rehearse your presentation

Stay away from reading directly off of a sheet of paper. Even if your participants cannot see you while presenting, they will be able to tell that your delivery is less than natural. If you have a lot of material to cover and are worried about missing something, an outline is a great way to keep on the topic. Bonus: you can also allot specific amounts of time to each topic on your outline to keep your conference on track.

●Avoid duplicating your speech and visuals

Just as you should avoid reading directly off of a sheet of paper, make sure you also do not read directly off your PowerPoint slides. Instead, limit the text on your slides to a few key bullet points, which you can expand on while presenting.

●Provide visuals

To get the best return on your web conferencing investment, be sure to utilize all of the tools and features that your service provides. And remember that graphs, charts and other visuals are a great way to make complex information easier to process.

●Set aside time for Q&A sessions

These are held at the end of a conference provided it is 30 minutes or less. If it is over the 30-minute mark, you should allow for smaller Q&A sessions at breaking points throughout your meeting, for example, after each speaker or topic. It will permit your participants to address pertinent questions before moving on to more complex material, as opposed to saving all their questions until the very end of your conference when you've moved on to unrelated material.

Conclusion

The above are tips and guidelines for using web conferencing. Web collaboration services such as desktop conferencing can play an important role in your company’s success. However, it is necessary to use the right web conferencing tools that will allow your partners, customers, and employees to collaborate and interact effortlessly.

ezTalks web conferencing appliance is an ideal tool for virtual meetings that offers a host of benefits over cloud solutions. Some of the notable ones include integration, branding and on-premise security. The web conference appliance is equipped with several essential features such as video conferencing, audio conferencing, web conferencing, and much more.

Videoconferencing Tips:4 Common Problems in Virtual Meeting and Corresponding Solutions

A virtual meeting refers to business discussion conducted via internet broadcast, videoconferencing, email and other similar modes. As you can imagine, it enables you to proceed with business discussion anytime wherever you are just like traditional meeting face to face. However, the virtual meeting also has its own problems. Here I’d like to list the most common 4 together with fixes below.

virtual meeting problems

Problem 1: Repeating yourself over and over again

This happens mostly when the attendee is not paying attention to what the presenter is saying. In that case, if you ask them a question, they would always reply with "Can you repeat that please?"

repeat oneself

Solution: Make sure to know everyone's name if it is a meeting that involves many attendees. This is extremely useful in getting one’s attention because people tend to be more focused if his name is mentioned in a meeting. Hence, to perfect every virtual meeting, remember to start every sentence with someone's name.

Problem 2: You have no idea who is talking to you

It happens when the presenter asks you for your opinion but you’ve no idea who that person is. Generally, such situation could lead to a hard time answering since addressing someone you’re not familiar with is quite tricky.

Solution: Lead the effort. Use all means to ensure that everybody knows you as soon as you start to speak. This would make it easier for people to call you by name when they want to ask you a question or need your opinion. This can be possible if you introduce yourself several times as you commence to speak so as to make the other members accustomed to your name and voice.

Problem 3: External noises and disturbance from the background

This happens the entire time. Baby cries, dog barks, automobile sounds and construction hammering could turn a meeting into a very torturous affair. This could make the members irritated and easy to lose concentration on the matter at hand. Most successful meetings are usually held in a quiet environment to guarantee full concentration.

external disturbance

Solution: Ensure high level etiquette guidelines are formulated and set to allow smooth running of the meeting.

Problem 4: Technology could fail

PowerPoint might decide to crash or one of the member's microphones might not pick up his voice and cut him out of the meeting. The video feed could also be so poor that all the members would look the same and unrecognizable. This would obviously interfere with the smooth running of the virtual meeting.

Solution: Have a backup plan prepared in case of any technical hitch occurs. Although there’re still technology issues can’t be fully prevented, such as bad Wi-Fi connection, call cutting out and device failure, it’s still recommended that you try ezTalks to host virtual meetings as EZTalks ensures the meeting goes on and everyone in the meeting are on the same page.

With above common problems in mind, you’d definitely avoid them next time and make the virtual meeting perfect and successful!

The Benefits of Telecommuting for Employees

Advocating time-saving and work-efficient, telecommuting quickly becomes a new working mode—working away from the business premise and usually in telecommuters' own home. With internet access, computer, web camera and microphone only, telecommuting can easily be realized. As a result, numerous people rush to working online from home without considering if they are suitable for telecommuting, let alone its potential disadvantages. FYI, I'd like to explain telecommuting pros and cons in details.

telecommuting

5 Advantages You can Benefit from Telecommuting

Greater Flexibility—Most telecommuting jobs having very flexible work schedules allow you to focus on other tasks that equally matter with ease, such as attending to household chores, taking care of children, shopping, etc.

Greater Fulfillment—Generally, you would be happier and more fulfilled than those who work under the traditional working arrangement. This is brought about by a confluence of factors including flexible work schedules, minimal supervisions and the lack of commuting to and from work.

telecommuting advantages

More Savings—Telecommuting requires no formal attire, no commuting expenses and no parking fees (for personal means of transportation), you are thus capable of saving more money which significantly bolster your disposable incomes.

Increased Independence—Telecommuting negates the need for constant reminders, direct supervisions from the managers and bosses and also offers less stringent working environments. For these reasons, you'd be much freer and more independent which contribute to greater fulfillment and productivity.

Suitability to Vulnerable Persons—Telecommuting offers a plausible alternative for the disabled, physically handicapped or mothers who may find it difficult to cope with the traditional modes of working and it is the only way they can be co-opted into gainful employment.

4 Disadvantages You may Suffer from Telecommuting

Isolation—Working from home is usually a lonely venture that may subject you to stress, depression and other problems that are associated with solitude.

Distractions—The home environment has plenty of items and people that can easily distract you, such as television, radio, video, kids and other electronics. This also impacts negatively on your productivity.

distract by kids 

Lack of the ability to Brainstorm—Different from working in the traditional office environment where you can easily brainstorm with peers when encountering problems, there's no one to consult if you choose to telecommuting. In short, it definitely impacts negatively on your performance.

Inhibits Career Growth and Development—Telecommuting makes it almost impossible to evaluate and supervise your performance, then how could employer recommend you for promotions? Honestly, it indeed greatly affects your career growth and development.

Taking telecommuting cons into consideration, hesitate to become telecommuters? Don't worry! There's always a trustworthy video conferencing tool that helps you keep close contact with colleagues and maximizes the benefits of telecommuting.

For Business:Top 5 Cloud Based Video Conferencing Services

Valued at 3.31 billion dollars, the video conferencing industry is lucrative yet competitive. It depends on technology and by the look of things technology will only get better in the coming years. This is why it is projected that by 2020, the industry will be worth 6.4 billion dollars, almost double the current valuation.

cloud video conferencing services

Be that as it may, there are genuine concerns about the availability and cost of equipments used in video conferencing services. In order to remain competitive and offer customers satisfactory services, most service providers in the industry have shifted to cloud-based technology. In this article, we’d examine and compare the top 5 cloud-based providers in the video conferencing industry.

★ ezTalks

This is a comprehensive video conferencing solution that not only allows users to build their own video conferencing platforms but also comes with a software solution, stable MCU and peripherals such as webcam and microphone. The facilities support remote communication and through customization, they can fit specific business needs such as enterprise video conferencing, online webinar, education, interview, sales or training, remote customer service and medical treatment among others.

eztalks

Its powerful features include HD video abilities, presence of a whiteboard, seamless audio, meeting recording, file sharing, screen sharing and other options. It is also flexible and scalable to meet certain demands of users. For instance, it can be built on a private server and network to enhance security. Moreover, it is so mobile friendly that is fully compatible with Android and iOS devices. The manufacturer also offers dedicated account management and support services.

★ Skype

Skype is undoubtedly one of the oldest video conference service providers. Due to its easy integration on websites and the simple facts that it accepts non-Skype calls, it’s widely accepted around the world. Its major features can be categorized to calling, video messaging, screen sharing, call forwarding features and more.

skype

★ Adobe Connect

This cloud-based video conferencing service operates in platforms that have either Flash iOS or Android capabilities. It works by categorizing users as hosts, presenters or participants. A host controls the meeting and selects a presenter from the list of participants. A presenter is basically a person who is talking or showing slides at any given time. In sum, it comes with peripherals such as webcams and microphones for chatting, taking polls, uploading and sharing files.

adobe connect

The biggest strength of Adobe Connect is that it performs consistently across platforms (such as Macs or Windows PCs). However, the service is prone to the limitations of all flash-based applications—can’t integrate on selected browsers (i.e. Chrome).

★ Citrix GoToMeeting

This service is designed for professionals. In fact, its lowest ranked package supports a minimum of 25 participants. It has multiple programs that organize each of their components (such as the control panels and videos of participants) on its own window. This means the package comes with many floating windows—one detached window for webcam and video, one for the control panel and another for icons that serve common functions like whiteboard.

gotomeeting

GoToMeeting also has some impressive features. For example, it is flexible enough to support Windows, Mac OS X, iOS and Android devices. This ability gives room for dial-in support for only voice chats and thus people with cell phones only can also be integrated. It also has screen sharing abilities and HD Faces. But the limitation to meeting recording abilities is its major con.

★ Zoom

Zoom’s popularity is enhanced by its Free Plan that supports up to 25 participants for limited sessions of 40 minutes. It also offers paid plans that vary in specifications. In general, it is featured in voice detection, HD video, HD audio, dual stream for dual screens, full screen as well as gallery views.

zoom

Speaking of the most outstanding features are its ability to integrate with Mac, Windows, iOS and Android devices, group messaging services, dedicated iPhone and iPad screen share, meeting recording and whiteboard.

That’s all for it! Can’t decide which one to choose? Just sign up for ezTalks in the window below and start your supreme video conferencing experience.

ezTalks - What Can Sales People Do with Video Conferencing?

ezTalks - What Can Sales People Do with Video Conferencing?

Sales is an activity that involves a lot of collaboration between lots of people. In the old days, one of the most powerful and productive sales activities is the face-to-face sales meeting. In order to build a personal rapport with their customers, build trust, and gain understand of customers. Sales people need to spend a great deal of time traveling to meet with customers. It is also a huge limiting factor on what a salesperson can do. After all, a salesperson can only be in so many places at once.Video Conferencing Equipment

However, it is not always necessary to travel around, in order to maximize their productivity. Sales people are always looking for new technology. In recent years, with the rapid development of technology and improvement of Internet bandwidth, many sales people began to use video conferencing to conduct their work activities between their customers and partners

Video conferencing is cheap and very easy to deploy, all you need is to get a camera and a computer or mobile devices such as Android devices or iOS device etc with good Internet connection in high-definition (up to 1080p) video. It is a good idea for sales people to communicate with their customers, clients and colleagues anytime, anywhere they can.

Sales people can use video conferencing to do the following things:

1) Do sales presentation: A good video conferencing solution provides all the features one needs to have an engaging, personalized meeting with customers. In addition to video feeds that enable customers and salespeople to see each other, there is screen sharing, which enables presenters to show as they tell, and there are annotation tools that enable context specific highlighting and visual augmentation.

As long as all parties to the meeting have Internet access, the meeting can be held anytime, anyplace. Participants only need to be in front of a PC with Internet access. Video conferencing provides a simple way to bring all the decision makers together for one presentation in a way that they can all see and interact with each other. This becomes a more efficient way to communicate that can accelerate business decisions.

2) For sales team: For many business models, sales is a team effort. There may be an account manager, but there may also be a solution specialist, a business process analyst, and others. All of these people must engage with the customers during the sales cycle. These communications become more complex if those people are in different locations. A video conferencing software offers a simple way to bring all sales team members together in a conference with the customer.Free Video Conferencing

 3) Conduct product demonstration: For certain kinds of products, a video conferencing program is an
excellent platform for delivering product demos. With high-definition video, the presentation team is
able to observe customer reactions to the presentation, which is important for any follow-on discussion.

4) Do sales training: As any sales manager knows, sales people require training to stay current on
product offerings and presentation strategies. They also need contact to help them stay focused and motivated. A video conferencing tool provides a way to do this that is far more cost effective than bringing the entire sales force out of the field and into a motivational meeting. A video conference also takes less time away from sales activities.

ezTalks - How to Choose The Right Video Conferencing Solution?

ezTalks - How to Choose The Right Video Conferencing Solution?

Video conferencing offers an convenient for companies to connect with clients and partners around the world. It enables people to talk face-to-face as if you were in the same room. Many organizations need to frequently to use video conferencing,some often on a daily basis so as to remain competitive without it.

But how to get the right video conferencing software? As you know, there are many video conferencing programs online. You’d better consider what you need before comparing and getting your desired video conferencing solution. Below are some points that you need to know when choosing the right video conferencing solution.Video Conferencing Equipment

1. Cost

Before investing in a particular video conferencing solution, you need to know the ROI - will the technology pay off? Notably:

  • Is the price reasonable for this value?
  • Does it fit in your budget?
  • Will it be worth the investment over the span of its expected useful life?

Don’t spend money on a solution if your answers to these questions is negative.

2. Features

This goes hand-in-hand with your budget, because advanced features or additional functionality come at a price. If all you want is to make an occasional video call with only one participant for example, you don’t need to pay for a tool that allows you up to 20 video attendees. Chances are, that just a Skype subscription will suffice. However, if you want to hold regular video conferences while also collaborating with your attendees, you need to look for a tool that has online collaboration capabilities like ezTalks.

Think of all the possible uses you will have for a video conferencing tool first, write these down and look for a video conferencing solution that will cater to that. This will help you find something that will fit your purposes perfectly, and you won’t end up paying for features that you don’t need.Free Video Conferencing

3. Needs

Once you’ve figured out your budget and what features you’ll need, you’re ready to start contacting video conferencing vendors. When you do so, be completely honest about your needs and your office setup, so they can help you find the best solution for your company. It also helps to make your budget clear, so you know straight away if the vendor has a video conferencing system that fits your needs.

Keep in mind that the better you know what you needs and the better you communicate them to potential vendors, the quicker you’ll have a working video conferencing system that fits your company’s needs perfectly.

4. Security

Security is critical no matter what the technology you consider. You must be insistent on the question of security. Hacking is omnipresent. Do research before asking your vendors questions – you need to understand the types of encryption codes and other security features that are available with the systems that you’re planning on purchasing.

5. Support

Help desksare required regardless of technology purchased. Pay attention to tech support terms to know how much service will be furnished post-sale as well as expected/guaranteed turnaround time. Don’t purchase a system where support isn’t unconditional and immediate.

ezTalks - 2014-2016 E-learning Market Trends-European E-learning Market

ezTalks - 2014-2016 E-learning Market Trends-European E-learning Market

17 years ago, Peter Drucker, an American management consultant, educator and author once said, “Universities won’t survive. The future is outside the traditional campus, outside the traditional classroom. Distance learning is coming on fast.”

According to the related statistics that the worldwide market for Self-Paced E-Learning reached $35.6 billion in 2011. The five-year compound annual growth rate is estimated at around 7.6% so revenues should reach some $51.5 billion by 2016.Free Video Conferencing

And in the next articles of the blog, we will show you with geographical insights what’s the e-learning trends between 2014-2016 in different regions of the world like Asian, African, European, Eastern European, North American, Western European, Latin American and Middle Eastern. Let’s first have a look at Eastern European E-learning market:

2014-2016 E-learning Market Trends — European E-learning Market

2014-2016 E-learning Trend Market Trends: European Market

The European E-learning overview:

1. Significant market size

Of the $4.1 trillion spent on education and training, approximately 25% is in Europe, making it the 2nd largest market, Europe boasts 27% more teachers than the US, with 4.6 million teachers as compared to 3.6 million in the US.

2. A highly fragmented market

The European E-learning market is a highly fragmented market comprising up to 3,000 predominantly small entrepreneurial companies. The fragmentation represents in part the early stage nature of the industry and the market difference within Europe.Video Conferencing Equipment

3. Limited invested capital to date

Although the relative difference in the size of markets between the US and Europe is not significant yet there is a big difference in the volume of venture deals in e-Learning. Since 2007, 60% of global venture investments in e-Learning have been in the US. Europe only accounts for 6% over the same period

4. Split between corporate & academic

The spend on academic education and learning outweighs the spend on corporate training by about 18x. There is also a regional split between northern and southern Europe where for example in the Nordics workers are 4x more likely to be receiving training than in southern Europe.

5. European M&A still nascent

The level of activity within e-Learning M&A in Europe is currently limited, with very few deals over $20 million. The market remains in development. The increase in venture investment is expected to fuel expansion and in due course increase strategic activity

6. IBIS Capital’s View on Europe

The evidence of increased investment in Europe in the sector and anecdotal support that companies are experience an upsurge in activity points to a market on the turn. We expect the e-Learning market to be characterised over the next 3 years by a significant increase in investment in the sector as well as a level of consolidation as companies seek scale

Most distance learning software including a computer-based training system and communications tools to produce a virtual classroom. Find a distance learning software that interests you from the variety of distance learning tools may cost your time. To save your time, I would like to recommend an outstanding distance learning software to you. ezTalks is a web-based video conferencing software, which can be used as a powerful E-learning software
