Let’s face it: Planning for a successful Web conference can take a lot of hard work. Oftentimes, many man hours of preparation, internal communications and customer outreach are required to ensure a successful online event.
With this in mind, the last thing you want to worry about when planning a Web conference is the stability of your core infrastructure. Fewer things are more frustrating than having several hours of planning and coordinating compromised by network failure, software licensing issues or bandwidth restrictions.
So, what’s the best way to avoid these problems and ensure a smooth presentation? Invest in a cloud-based Web conferencing platform, which will allow you to utilize the power of a third-party server instead of having to rely on legacy equipment.
Below are three reasons why you should hold your next Web conference in the cloud:
Save money: A recent survey shows that 70 percent of businesses are able to reinvest money back into their organizations as a result of migrating to the cloud. Your business will save money on repairs and expensive upgrades, as well as on system downtime, because the cloud is hosted offsite and managed by a third party that is also responsible for ensuring its stability.
Avoid hardware and software issues: Cloud-based Web conferencing software can be easily accessed through an Internet browser. This way, end users (including both employees and customers) will never run into hardware restrictions or software licensing and compatibility issues when it’s time to log into a meeting.
Scale rapidly: Your business may need to upsize or downsize on short notice. With a cloud-based Web conferencing service, your company can scale rapidly in a cost-effective way. Instead of having to manually provision or restrict access to software, your IT department can easily perform deployment services from a central location, which can save hours of work.
