Meetings can be stress-inducing, time-sucking, and productivity-lacking, but they are a necessary evil of everyday business. According to the National Statistics Council, 37 percent of employee time is spent in meetings. No wonder they feel like a waste of time!

Still, we need meetings in order to collaborate and stay up-to-date on the important happenings of not only our colleagues, but our clients. They are where deals are sealed and money is made.

Getting all your major players into a room at the same time is a well-known challenge, and it can be costly, too. A study by Verizon Conferencing and Meetings in America revealed that “a five-person meeting conducted in-person (involving plane travel for four of the attendees) is over seven times more expensive than a meeting conducted by audio conference, and nearly three times as expensive as a video conference.”

Thanks to advances in modern technology, web conferencing provides an economical and efficient way to get your important meetings handled. With a variety of web conferencing solutions available to provide your virtual meeting venue, how do you know which is best for your business?

The Business.com Web Conferencing Comparison Chart provides an in-depth look at various solutions, allowing you to see your options side-by-side.
