There are so many great video and web collaboration applications on the market today.  Tools such as: Zoom, GoToMeeting, Microsoft Teams, and Webex bring your meeting experience to life and save both time and travel costs. With just an internet connection, you can easily collaborate with chat, web and video.

These tools are great for video collaboration when you are using a desktop. The experience generally diminishes once brought into the conference room. The laptop experience usually cuts out people gathered around the conference table and Its narrow field camera limits what can be seen by all meeting participants. Furthermore, laptop speakers can provide a poor audio experience. As a result, many users need to add an external phone to support the conversation.
