Document Collaboration Via Webcasts

Posted by Daniel Roche on Mar 16, 2017 12:23:00 PM

Document collaboration is a critical function of many businesses. Proposals, regulatory filings, contracts, investor materials, marketing collateral, product specifications, and a myriad of other documents are created, revised, and reviewed by multiple people, often in different locations.

While email is an essential business communications tool, it falls short when it comes to document collaboration. Overstuffed inboxes, response delays, and lack of version control make email an inefficient mode of collaboration, especially when time is of the essence.

On the other hand, a video webcast that enables real-time participation is a powerful collaboration tool with no geographic limitations.

Need to power edit a time-critical press release? Want to hold a live document review session with subject matter experts and stakeholders scattered on two continents? Screen share, slide content, and live interaction features of video webcasting make it effective for managing content collaboratively.

A self-service webcasting platform enables the least technically savvy employee to create a webcast, usually within 10 minutes. A mobile user can launch a webcast with only a webcam and a phone.

As a webcast presenter, you can share slides synchronized with audio and video, a document, or any content that is on your computer screen to gather immediate feedback. Participants can ask you and each other questions and provide and view comments using the webcast player interface on their laptops, tablets, smartphones, or other mobile devices.

In this way, multiple people are reviewing the same document in one place at the same time without losing document integrity. The work gets done without the need for multiple meetings or lengthy email exchanges.

Multi-Location Webcasts Enrich Collaboration

If your webcasting platform supports “some-to-many” streaming, your single webcast can feature presenters from multiple different locations.

Say, for example, that time-critical press release requires technical content from an engineer in Miami and an IT architect in Boston. Because video feeds can be pulled in from more than one site, the expert in Miami appears alongside the Boston colleague to vet their content in a single webcast presentation to all participants simultaneously.

Advances in self-service webcasting platforms make it possible for even non tech-savvy users to handle multi-location webcasts themselves.

Document collaboration is foundational to a knowledge-based workforce. Enterprises need to make it easy for teams to collaborate, solve problems, and manage content in real time, wherever they are and whatever device they are using.
