Not everyone is familiar with this technology and just how easy it is to use which can make it difficult to invite a first-timer to an online meeting.

We recently published a white paper detailing a dozen every day scenarios where online meetings can play a part and save you significant time. There are many more such applications of use which apply to all of us. But… none of this matters unless your participants join your screen sharing meeting.

How can you convince your clients that joining you in an online meeting will facilitate your discussion and be far more effective and productive than without?

Work from HomeIn a recent article on SMH, Bellinda Kontominas spoke about how more employees wish to work from home, while employers are fearful about the fact that they may do less work.

The number of state government employees working from home increased by over 122%.
