What is an E-Meeting?
An e-meeting is simply an electronic meeting.
How Does an E-Meeting Work?
Let’s say John Doe is working with 15 people on a project. Many of the people are in other states, but John Doe needs to get them all in a room to talk about a problem with the project.
Rather than spend thousands of dollars and several days on airfare, hotel rooms and rental cars to get all 15 people in one place at the same time, John Doe calls an e-meeting. Using Skype, GoToMeeting, or a similar service, each person is able to dial into an online meeting place and, using their webcams and computers, see each other, talk, make presentations and share information more easily.
Why Does an E-Meeting Matter?
The advent of e-meeting technology has allowed people around the world to share ideas and information more cheaply and easily. The technology largely relies on the presence of fast Internet connections, voice-over-Internet-protocol (VOIP) technology, and digital camera technology. Because of this technology, companies, teams and entrepreneurs are able toon ideas and execute those ideas more quickly.
