How do Web conferences work in real life?

Web conferences in real life: In many ways, this is a funny, sometimes nerve-wracking affair.

In this respect this video of Zoom is to be understood as a nice idea and suggestion.

In real life Zoom is not only “good”. In this respect, such a comedy is also somewhat mitigating for some people.

There are quite a few of our customers who refuse zoom sessions. Therefore we use all possibilities alternatively: From teams to WebEx, Zoom, GoToMeeting, TeamViewer and and and… Everything that the market has to offer and heart desires.

In addition to web conference tools, classic collaboration tools are also used. We have created a market overview for this as well.

Good collaboration tools also come from Germany.

Who currently offers free or significantly cheaper collaboration tools? Since one week different manufacturers offer a part of their tools for free or significantly cheaper.

Classics from the USA are for example Trello, Asana or Slack (here our Slack Portrait). Google offers its G Suite and Microsoft the product Teams for free.

In our list of providers we have complied for example G Suite, Smartsheet, Trello, meistertask, monday, wire, slack or jostle. Have a look or check which one of the methods suits you best.

Web conferences in real life: Does everything always happen so “closely packed” in a conference?

Quite possible, because the technical difficulties e.g. of a functioning WLAN, a good transmission in general or also the technical problems (whether loudspeaker on or microphone on) are still far from being eliminated. This will accompany us for a while.

The classic for mood or disturbance is dialing in from the car or screaming children in the background. Even nicer are colleagues who disappear to the toilet during the session and do not press the mute button. Everything already experienced.

Web conferences in real life – Life is hard and unfair.

That’s how long we have to live with the human inadequacies, keep our composure and reckon with the odd faux pas and moderating you away with a smile.
