Video Conference vs. Audio Conference

Conference call etiquette…who needs it? You do!  According to a survey conducted by Wainhouse Research, virtual meetings now outnumber in-person meetings. The study found that virtual meetings save time and money and improve productivity. It also mentioned that conference call technology is growing at a rate of 60% every year.

This is a growing technology so it is important that you understand basic conference call etiquette:

Here is a quick review

Video Conferences should be treated as in-person meetings and therefore you should dress accordingly. Avoid clothes with patterns (such as stripes or prints) because they can sometimes cause interference when the compressed video signal is distributed. You should speak clearly, look at the camera, and don’t leave the room unless you have to.

Audio conference calls have their own challenges. You should always introduce yourself when you speak so that other participants know who is talking. Avoid using a speakerphone and turn off (literally) background noise distractions.

AccuConference Announces Fax to Email Service

AccuConference would like to announce the unveiling of our new option, fax to email — a service that will enable customers to receive their faxes via email.

Fax to email is all about the streamlining of our customers’ communications. It’s a practical application that will convert faxes to PDF’s that will arrive in our customers’ inboxes. These faxes are archived digitally, allowing customers to sort, store, print and review them as if they were a typical email.

For less than $2.50 a month, customers get a dedicated, uniquely assigned fax number. In addition to fax-to-email conversions, it allows customers to receive faxes in an electronic Web format, which puts them at customers’ fingertips and makes them viewable from any browser. Fax to email also grants access to a customer site where customers can log in and view all of their faxes and calls.

Fax to email is a modern opportunity that chimes with modern businesses in the information age. With so much inflow of information, the ability to organize and archive digitally is essential.  The fax to email service fulfills that need.
