Web Conference Services - Outsourcing Your Conferencing Needs
I run a growing advertising company in the UK and Iím looking for some cheap ways of sharing ideas with other offices around the country, and also now that we are getting more national clients we need to be able to show them our progress without having to travel all the time. Weíve tried conference calls but if the client canít see it then it is a waste of time. E-mail is okay, but it will sometimes be days before we get a response and then itís only an "Iíll get to this as soon as I can" e-mail. Help!
