Google+ Hangouts, Google's answer to SME's web conferencing needs
Among the variety of free online collaboration tools online, Google+ Hangouts goes right on top in usability and functionality.
Google+ Hangouts offers more tools for online collaboration
Google+ Hangouts simplifies the process of setting up a meeting online with as much as 10 people. Its plug-ins are easy to install on laptops, iOs, Androids and Smartphones.
With its user-friendly interface, even the less tech-savvy people can find their way around it.
It provides a wide array of tools – from whiteboards, to project calendars; from diagrams to screen sharing capabilities. Google+ Hangouts has all the basic tools that you and your team need for your online presentations, project planning and brainstorming.
You can enable your Google+ Hangouts to record your meetings and be uploaded on Youtube so that people who may have missed them can access them.
You can even hold “on air” webinars or training sessions and reach thousands of people in different parts of the world.
Google+ Hangouts is miles ahead of other free online collaboration tools
There are other free web conferencing tools online; but the rate of productivity will most likely be higher with Google+ Hangouts.
According to Choc Chip Digital Director and Web Consultant, James Crook, “Google+ Hangouts is what we use every day to help our team communicate more effectively. Video conferencing makes it possible to work more closely with people who are off site and easily keep in touch on a regular basis.”
The only limitation Google+ Hangouts has is that it doesn’t allow integration of non-Google+ apps; however, this can easily be overlooked as most smaller companies normally do not need any more apps than what the site already offers.
Google+ Hangouts is the most convenient and efficient online collaboration tool that you can use to support your company’s communication needs.
