Webconferencing has attracted a lot of attention from corporations and from environmentalists. Corporations are interested in the time and money saving properties a web conference has over traditional meetings. Environmentalists are excited at the possibilities of using technology to reduce travel because of how it reduces CO2 emissions and saves the environment. To say the least, many people stand to benefit from the use of the webconference.
Salespeople can use webconferencing to revolutionize the way they work.
