Recently we hosted a webinar aimed at helping IT and Procurement professionals get a handle on an ever growing problem – out of control conferencing and collaboration services across their organization.

In the webinar we discussed:

  • The Current Small to Medium Enterprise Landscape
    • Organizations with many global locations
    • Many locations added to their oversight umbrella via acquisition.
    • Do more with less…faster
    • Find cost savings – from anywhere
    • A knight to many kings – yes, you report to someone in IT but you need to service the VP of Marketing, SVP of Sales, your CxO team, etc.
  • How to develop a comprehensive collaboration plan that:
    • Considers all users and departments in your organization
    • Matches solutions like audio conferencing (whether it be reservationless conferencing or Operator Assisted conferencing) and webcasting solutions to the appropriate user and use case.
  • How to get your arms around the quagmire of decentralized services and procurement that you’re now trying to clean up
    • Gather as much data as possible via
      • Invoices
      • Reports
      • Contracts
      • Usage Statistics
    • How to get your current supplier to do all the work
      • You’ll quickly realize if they are the right webinar provider for your team.
  • How to select the right partner

  • How to get the best pricing
    • When to push back
    • What to pay extra for
    • How to get the pricing you want fro the partner you want to work with
  • A real example, case study, of a $5B global manufacturing company that realized a 47% ROI on their reservationless conferencing and webinar services.

At the end of the webinar there were many great questions that we answered such as:

  • What are some clues or tips during the pre-sales process that will help to qualify a good conferencing partner?

  • What’s our favorite webcasting solution to recommend?

  • How long does a typical migration of audio conferencing services take?

  • My Marketing and IR teams are looking to improve their webinars and IR calls can we use you for just that?

If any of this sounds familiar and you’re looking for help delivering a high ROI from your conferencing services, we invite you to view an archive of our webinar HERE:
