Make Online Meetings Easier with 8x8

Virtual Office Meetings OnlineLet’s run through an all-too-familiar scenario. Your boss forwards you an invite to join an online meeting with a major sales prospect that begins at 10 am sharp. You want to create a good impression so you click on the meeting link provided and try to join a few minutes early. This initiates a software download, and when you attempt to launch it you quickly realize that IT has locked down administrative privileges on your laptop.

It is now 10:05 am. While frantically trying to figure out how to install the software and join the meeting, your boss has been texting “Where are you?” and “the sales prospect is ready to end the meeting if you don’t join soon!” The opportunity to make a great first impression has disappeared and you come off looking unprofessional.

In an ideal world you would click the meeting link, enter a few credentials, and immediately join the meeting.
