The first Website to provide a vendor-independent assessment of online meeting tools has now gone live at Webconferencing-test.com (www.webconferencing-test.com).

With the vast amount of service providers that are available today, it’s not always easy to find the one that best fills the bill for your particular web conferencing needs.
What once required the physical presence of a number of individuals in a common location is now being accomplished through video conferencing. Thanks to the technological leaps of the past several years, any number of people can attend the same meeting from all points around the globe at any given time.
There is no question that teleconferencing is revolutionizing the way that people do business, both on the Internet and offline.
