Low cost, ease to set up and low risk of technical problems are the main advantages of holding an audio conference instead of a video conference, and few people in the business environment would consider using web conferencing without the audio support. This justifies special attention when implementing the audio conferencing service most adapted to your needs.

 

When evaluating different audio conferencing service providers, you can take into consideration the simplicity to set up the calls, privacy and security, the cost elements (for example, duration of the calls, number of participants and the use of toll-free numbers), and the possibility of recording the calls, if this is desired.

 

On chapter 17 of the Global Project Management book, there are some recommendations on how to evaluate the implementation of audio conferencing in your company or project, how to improve the implementation and how to prepare documentation and procedures.
