The first post in this series introduced you to useful hardware. Today, we want to take it one step further and look into voice conferencing software. VoIP conferences give you more options than a traditional telephone conference when it comes to the settings – sound volume, mute, microphone sensitivity… If you’re just getting started with VoIP, however, the wide range of features may seem overwhelming. After all, it’s quite a switch from your old phone! Not one to be left behind, you still want to make use of new technology, and of course you want to know how you can get the best results from your investment.
Are you just getting started with your online meeting software? Or have you hosted a couple of meetings that just haven’t gone as smoothly as you planned, but you just can’t put your finger on why? Then this is definitely the right article for you.
Are you hosting your voice conferences over the Web yet? As everything in the workplace moves towards virtual spaces, online voice conferencing via Voice over IP (VoIP) is gaining on the traditional telephone conference in the office, and with good reason. Not only is it more cost-effective, especially when it comes to international calls, it’s also much more convenient. You can call multiple people at once with ease, and you have your hands free during the call. Add to this the many features that VoIP software offers and the advantages over a standard phone call are getting clearer. However, switching to new technology can be daunting. Do you need additional hardware? What should you look for in conferencing software? Don’t worry, you’re not the only one asking those questions. This week, we answer your hardware questions and offer some useful tips for successful online voice conferences.

Super Bowl Sunday is finally here! Time to turn on the TV and… go online? Really? These days, it’s hard to imagine any major sports event without online communication. Social media in particular has become a vital part of the experience. During last year’s game, users posted 24.1 million Super Bowl related Tweets – and that number is on a steep rise. Fans, journalists, and sports professionals all use the internet to get in touch with the world while watching the game.
Even online meetings play an important role as well during Super Bowl. It’s not just that it’s easier to do your halftime and post-game analysis with your far-flung friends when you’ve got access to screen sharing and whiteboard tools. You can benefit from online meetings at your job as well, especially this weekend. Read on to find out how Mikogo can help make your Super Bowl Sunday even better!
