Compare Solutions

Have you decided that video conferencing is the best fit for your business? Audio conferencing doesn't allow you to share documents or collaborate visually. Web conferencing's video component is rudimentary at best, and most communication still goes in one direction. Video conferencing has none of the shortcomings of those other systems.

 How do you choose the video solution that's right for you? Here's a quick “at-a-glance” comparison chart to show you some of the features and benefits that video has over audio and the Web.
