Although cost savings is one of the major stimulant for companies to opt the use computer based audio conferencing solutions, one primary factor that has emerged significantly in the roll out of the survey data reports from actual conference solutions users for different firms & businesses. 69.9% of survey respondents vindictively mark the ability to join online meetings at ease and panache from just about anywhere with an Internet network attached to their computer, laptop or any other devices. Another impounding statistic of 51.8% of survey “conference user” respondents for the factor to easily schedule the web based audio conference call in sync with the web conference session in motion.
50.6% respondents agreeing cost to be the potential factor for the roll out of computer based conference channel in sync with VOIP technology.
Additional primaries in descending order include dynamics of ease in initiating the online conference session as well as joining the web meeting, dependency for additional phone lines or phone devices yet at the same time merging real time possibilities of convenience & control in the monitoring of any live conference session.

The remaining meager remainder percentages are respondents whose company dynamics in terms of size or the product they cater does not accommodates the roll out of conference communication channels.
Relatively to comprehend the modest simple notion of why or what would draw the attentions of the non-conference users, respondents were asked to foreplay the ease of using and scheduling an audio conferencing sessions along with web conference attire as well as the ease in joining these conference sessions by other participants remotely. The ability to control and monitor respective participant conference channels, mute or un-mute the same, lock & un-lock an ongoing-conference session for businesses are prime de-facto for the necessitation of IP based conferencing.
Typically audio conferencing sessions in accord with the more traditional and widespread network of PSTN dial-in conference access numbers bridges the same ongoing discussion from two different respective aspects to bridge the audio and web conference.

For the final note on the day’s post in the agreement of all the agreeable clauses, that we have covered so far in the purview and inspection of computer powered audio conferencing, the survey respondents were asked why they would not consider the roll out of conference technology.
Two top reasons were cited categorically:

Undeniably, these are rectifiable clauses as compared to the concerns pertaining to ease in attending or conducting these conference sessions, which are therefore considered lesser significant obstacles.
