Web Collaboration - A Cost Effective and Productive Solution

March 28, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 120

Malaysia has the fourth largest economy of Southeast Asia with nominal Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of US$ 267.2 billion. However, due to the economic slowdown, Malaysian companies are constantly trying hard to cut down the operational costs without compromising on overall productivity. Although there are several ways through which corporate firms can reduce the cost, web collaboration has become the preferred cost cutting option for Malaysian firms.

With the aim of establishing a strong foothold in foreign markets, Malaysian exporters have started expanding their businesses in other countries. This requires them to meet their associates and professionals on a regular basis, which is not feasible in an economic recession. This underscores the role of online meetings, which allow multiple users to communicate with each other in real-time. These meetings can be conducted anytime without any type of prior notification or reservation. Organisation can also host high profile meetings with Operator-Assisted calls or Events Managed services.

A virtual meeting helps companies in exchanging information easily and conveniently, without incurring any additional expenses. The cost of meals, conveyance and accommodation can be saved by using online web collaboration solutions. An online business conference call encourages inter-organisational and intra-organisational information exchange through a browser-based interface.

Conferencing companies provide business solutions that enable geographically dispersed participants collaborate using either a laptop or mobile devices with an Internet connection. This also enables users to share PowerPoint presentations, data and documents online. Some of the conferencing features include mute/un-mute function,dial-out options, annotations and polling tools.

Real-time collaboration allows business decisions to be made promptly, deploying quicker go-to-, market strategies. Apart from interacting with associates and employees, virtual meeting is also beneficial for communicating with customers. This solution enables corporate firms to negotiate and deal with their clients easily and communicate face-to-face using the video conferencing component of the solution.

Hosted solutions on the cloud platform are gaining prominence nowadays because of better reliability, improved call quality and cheaper call rates. These conferencing solutions, which are provided to users on the 'as-a-service' model, are ideal for Malaysian companies as these lower the cost of international calling manifolds and make it easier for organisations to keep bills under control while improving remote collaboration.

Conferencing solutions are also demanded in the education and medicine field. These solutions are essential for both distance education and communication. Doctors can use these conferencing tools to render medical advice or demonstrating treatments with video conferencing. This underscores the importance of such collaboration solutions in a wide variety of fields.
