Video conference call software
If you paid me a dollar for every minute I’ve spent on a conference call in my life, I probably would never have to work again. But I like working—and that’s exactly why I don’t like conference calls.

I know there are forms of business communication less efficient that conference calls, but I’m having trouble thinking of them right now. People drop in and out, talk over each other, lose track of who’s saying what—and the more voices on the line, the more confusing it all becomes.
Do two or three of these back to back, and it’s enough to make you doubt the future of the species. Thankfully, I’ve got the solution—at least for me and my team. But I bet it’ll work for you too.
If you’d like to avoid the irritation and disappointment of conference calls, but need to collaborate with people in different departments, towns, states, even countries, then video conferencing is the answer.
If I had heard myself say that even just a couple of years ago, I would have rolled my eyes and kept looking for a better answer. If you’re like me, you’ve used video conferencing software that was somehow even worse than conference calling. Bad audio, lagging video—who’s got time for it?
But we started using Zoom sometime back, and I’m a believer. It is the better answer. First off, the sound is always clear and the image crisp. But that’s just the start.
