Imagine Holding Business-To-Business Online Meetings Anytime, Anywhere
What is an Online Meeting?
Put simply, an online meeting is just like a standard, face-to-face meeting, except it occurs over the
Internet. Elaborating a bit, a more technical definition is two or more computers connected via a real-time
data communications channel, usually the Internet, that are sharing a live, virtual meeting space. The latter
is often a shared desktop or drawing board, sometimes a presentation.
The enabling technology is often called live
conferencing, among other names. These
technologies have gone through several generations evolving with the computer industry: initially limited
to LANs, then 1-to-many presentations over the Web, and now fully interactive, multiparty meetings.
Nefsis is the Next Generation
Nefsis is the next generation online meeting service, providing on-demand meeting services to virtually
any desktop worldwide, for any number of fully interactive participants, with live data sharing, voice
over the Internet (VoIP) and video.
In particular, Nefsis is optimized for impromptu meetings and simultaneously
sharing desktops, VoIP and
multipoint video, continually
optimizing the online meeting experience. In addition, Nefsis has a wide variety of sharing features available to all
users (not just the presenter), so real, substantial work can get done in your online meetings. Nefsis isn't just
for show, it's for productive online meetings.
Online Meetings With Nefsis Are Easy
If you're familiar with browsing the Web and standard office applications such as Microsoft® Word™,
Excel® and PowerPoint®, you can hold an online meeting.
Once you sign-up for a Nefsis account, you can enter your own virtual meeting room with two clicks, one to launch
the application (or browser), another to click "my meeting room". Nefsis provides prompts to invite participants and
start sharing materials. Your participants simply click on a hyperlink sent in your e-mail invitation, and they'll
join you in your virtual conference room.
High-Quality Video Energizes Web Meetings
Nefsis goes beyond the usual Web conferencing experience providing boardroom quality video using ordinary webcams and
standard video equipment. The Nefsis
server cloud optimizes performance
by selecting the best near-by server, and continuously balancing your CPU power, bandwidth consumption and video quality so
that you get the best conferencing experience possible even on shared Internet connections. With high-capacity, corporate
Internet access, even
HD video conferencing is readily available.
The addition of multiparty video to online meetings is important, because it lends a human touch to the virtual experience. Even in bandwidth-limited scenarios, many of our customers will activate video just to wave hi and "connect" with everyone, then pause the video and continue with their online meeting. Once you've experienced this, you'll intuitively understand why, it helps build rapport among your team members much like a physical conference room.
Top Applications & Business Benefits
The best part of holding an online meeting is that you can meet at a moment's notice with just about anyone worldwide,
with no travel expense or delay. You gain most, if not all of the benefits from sitting across the table from a prospect,
customer, or colleague, without having to get in the car or on a plane.
Online meetings can be a great addition to conference calls too. They open up an entire visual dimension to an otherwise
audio-only forum. This can be very useful for staying on track by keeping the agenda in view, and displaying working documents,
spreadsheets, drawings, plans and charts. The experience is very much like meeting around a conference room table, it just
happens to be a shared computer desktop with participants seated anywhere in the world.

Instead of your normal telephone call or conference call, why don't you try
video conferencing and meeting online instead?
Contrary to popular opinion, online meetings are not meant to completely replace your normal
teleconference calls or in-person meetings, but they can be an add-on to what you are already doing, or
provide more flexibility in your travel schedule. For example, you can visit a remote office once per year, but continue
monthly meetings online. Wouldn't you like to cut flying or driving to every recurring meeting? Well, now you can!
