The Web conferencing industry is transforming from a generic mechanism for pushing information out from one to many to a mechanism for the interaction of many to many. For the many to many communications it is a necessity to incorporate structure into the virtual meeting. The more discipline we can bring to the interactivity, the more efficient the process will become. Therefore GroupSupport uses the online application in project teams where participants can effectively work on a joint result although participants are geographically distributed and may even be contributing asynchronously.
Online meetings will not replace the face to face meetings, but will enforce project teams to interact more, build intellectual property, and make a decision process transparent to all participants.
