How to choose a web conference
Many companies have introduced Web conferencing, but when gathering voices from people who actually use it, the following four points are often raised as points to keep in mind.
1. Is it possible to achieve sufficient image quality and sound quality regardless of domestic or overseas?
If the sound or video is interrupted during a web conference, all participants feel stressed. This is also true for domestic connections, but I would like to be very careful especially when conducting web conferences with a long distance overseas . According to statistics from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the number of Japanese companies expanding into China is China, and it can be said that an important point of view is whether a stable environment can be created through communication with China. Especially in China, there is a great firewall called “Gold Shield” installed by the government, and the quality tends to be unstable. It is necessary to determine whether stable sound quality and image quality can be maintained, which are not easily influenced by national circumstances .
2. Will you support me when I need help?
Web conferencing offers many free tools, but generally we cannot receive support for troubleshooting. If you are unable to hold a meeting due to a problem, there is a risk that your work may be hindered. Among those provided by foreign-affiliated companies, even for a fee, support centers are set up in China and Singapore, and although the minimum Japanese language is understood, it takes time to understand the contents accurately. Also in case. I would like to make sure that you can get phone support 24/7 and that there is no problem with the response.
Also, because the sound quality and image quality are affected by the specifications of the installed device and the communication line, it may be difficult to hold a meeting in a high-quality environment if the camera performance and CPU / memory specifications of the smartphone are not so high. There is.
3. Is communication encryption and account management thorough?
When using it in an enterprise, you will want to take security into consideration. In particular, encryption is a hot topic. Recently, there are some free tools that have been encrypted, but there are many that have not yet been fully secured. Also, from the perspective of security, whether account management including authority management is thorough, such as being able to delete the account information of retired employees properly based on authority, becomes important. Anyone can participate from the point of view of convenience, but it must also have a viewpoint that functions can be restricted based on authority.
4. Can it be connected to video conferencing and telephone conferencing, or can it be used for other purposes?
In fact Web when introducing the conference, already introduced to that existing video conferencing and telephone conference you can connect with, will the discussion often of whether can also be used for purposes other than meeting. Also from the point of view of investment protection, etc. take advantage of the connection and other applications with the existing environment, fruit of the important point 1 is one. When you choose a Web conference, you will be asked whether it has an effective function that contributes to operational efficiency, not just connecting remote locations .
