Become the Company Hero With Conferencing Services


Meeting attendees around the world can now collectively breathe a sigh of relief - crowding around a single computer screen during a meeting has become a thing of the past! While it is possible (yet uncomfortable) to get work done that way, thankfully modern technology has come to the rescue.
Today's audio conferencing and web conferencing services now allow everyone on your team to interact and collaborate with each other in real time - whether they are two doors down the hall, two cities across town, or thousands of miles across the globe in Timbuktu.
Both audio conferencing and web conferencing offer a comprehensive range of features that vary with the provider you select for your business.
Typical audio conferencing features include (but are not limited to):
  • 24/7 operator assistance
  • Keypad shortcuts with dial-out access
  • Individual passcodes for both the host and attendees
  • Optional security codes
  • Mobile integration
  • Quick and easy scheduling via Outlook
  • The ability to meet with up to hundreds of participants
  • Local and international toll-free access points

Wondering if your branch office 3,000 miles away has anything to add to your new customer presentation? There's no longer a need to sit in traffic waiting to get to the airport, go through the hassle of security, baggage, etc., fly all that distance, and pay for a hotel room just to find out. With web conferencing solutions like Microsoft Office Live Meeting through PGi, you can be the company hero. Save thousands of dollars in travel expenses and countless hours by collaborating with your in-house team in real-time with interactive annotation tools and application sharing. There is no required pre-registration and you can collect a meeting report at the duration of your conference. It's really that easy! Don't believe us? Give one of our professional account managers a call today and we'll walk you through it.
