WebEx conference calls
If your business subcontracts with other vendors located across the country or hires consultants who telecommute remotely, face-to-face meetings of your entire team can carry a high price tag. The Cisco WebEx online meeting and collaboration service enables you to hold virtual conference calls so you can schedule real-time communication without the costs of airline tickets and hotel stays. Setting up a WebEx session can take less time than typing a meeting agenda.
Visit the WebEx website and log in to your WebEx Meetings account. Click on the "Schedule" button.
Type the name of your event in the "What" field on the Schedule a WebEx Meeting screen. Use the online calendar to select the date and the drop-down menu next to it to choose your start time. Click on the "Length" drop-down menus to set the duration of your event in hours and minutes.
