This year, due to the pandemic, many events have been canceled or postponed indefinitely. This article is about prospects of the virtual format in business communication.
What is a board portal?
Nowadays the main alternative to the usually crowded events is online conferences, which are held through any device connected to the Internet. This method of communication saves company resources and allows you to contact more than a thousand users. In these events, the speaker communicates directly with the meeting participants through audio and video communication, as well as online chat. Meetings are held through certain programs on the user’s device or platform. One of such solutions is a boardroom meeting. The boardroom is a web portal for organizing collaboration between the Board of Directors. For industry professionals, such a conference is a virtual round table.
Pros and cons of boardroom software
They are as follows:
- Large audience coverage. Some platforms are designed for the interaction of 100 active participants and more than 10 thousand listeners.
- Cost savings. The organizer only needs equipment for webinars and full access to the platform.
- The participant only needs to have constant access to the Internet and the ability to install the program or connect to the platform.
- The events are attended by people who are interested in the topic of the conference, such events are not attended by “onlookers”.
In addition, board meetings via board portals can be held regardless of the location of the participant. The lack of dependence on a person’s residence allows you to expand the boundaries of business and enter the international level.
The main disadvantage of online events is the lack of live communication. The goal of the events has always been to unite people, whether they are clients, partners, or company employees. With the transition to online, this component was lost. It’s harder to keep a person’s attention online.
