Posted by Zoe Geoffrion , on Oct, 2015
Using technology to connect sales staff with clients, team members working in remote locations, or just to get the group together for planning, brainstorming, or touching base is a cost saving idea. With the GoToMeeting software and app offering even more in functionality and features, connecting face-to-face from a distance has never been easier.
Having the ability to actually see the person or the people you are communicating with adds a completely new level to the personalization of any type of business discussion. This includes sales professionals with their clients or a team working on a project all in different areas of a building or in different areas of the world.
With GoToMeeting, it is easy to set up these online conferences and chat sessions with the individuals accessing the meeting. It is possible to connect from any type of device including smartphones and tablets, both Android and iOS, as well as from laptops and desktops. The system can interact with a phone or VoIP systems and delivers consistently top quality sound as well as HD video.
While the system will allow you to regularly set up a GoToMeeting room for reoccurring meetings, it is also highly secure even for a single time use. The system is encrypted, and it is also HIPPA compliant, which means it can be used for medical and mental health collaborations and consultations, providing a high level of security that any business will appreciate.
It is important to realize that while the person organizing the meeting will need to have a GoToMeeting account, members attending the meeting do not have to have an account. This makes it simple to connect with anyone and prevents any limitation as to who can access the meeting.
Unlike some of the competitors, GoToMeeting allows you to continue to use other apps and programs on your computer or device while on the video call. This is perfect when you need to be able to attend to emails, instant messages or even access Office or other documents during the discussion.
Additionally, it is possible to share information and documents from your computer or device with other group members. Having the ability to share the screen, saves time in having to email everyone the data or documents and wait until it is opened for each user.
With GoToMeeting, it is also possible to record some or all of the meeting. This can be a time saver with regards to having to take minutes, plus it also allows those not at the meeting to listen and see the full meeting at their convenience.
