Why Zoom is a great option for your online meeting
Zoom is, and will remain for the foreseeable future, one of the most popular ways to meet online. Organizing an online meeting via Zoom is therefore a great option, which is used by many companies (and individuals). People won't be too surprised if you use Zoom. They probably know it! With its platform for video conferences, online meetings and chat sessions, this American software company has responded well to the needs brought on by the Corona crisis. We have started working from home en masse and - of course - still need to get in touch with colleagues. The company has been around for quite some time (since 2011), though. One could say it camme well prepared. The crisis has obviously increased the demand for video conferencing tools. But what makes Zoom so popular and how do you start with Zoom?
Why choose Zoom?
With a free account only you can already have a great meeting with Zoom. Of course there are certain limits in place, and it may be better for you and your company to opt for a paid version. But a lot is possible with the free version as well. The free version remains free! You can hold meetings for up to 100 people with this version. A big advantage of Zoom's video conferencing tool is the many features it contains. Already in the free version too. How about break-out rooms, whiteboards, private and group chats or the possibility to virtually raise your hand! Installation and use is easy and the chat function works great. Screen sharing can be done by multiple users. In addition, Zoom also has the great advantage that it can be used on many different devices.
How do you start with Zoom?
It really is quite easy to use Zoom. On the Zoom site you can see which package suits you and your company best. If you opt for the free version, just filling in your date of birth and and email address is required. After that just confirm the link in the email Zoom sent you. You will be taken to a page to create your password. If you want to start right away, you'll have the option to enter the email addresses of your colleagues with whom you want to meet. The meeting can start right away. Wasn't that quick? Of course you can choose a specific starting time too. Next meeting it will be just a matter of logging into Zoom and scheduling a new one!
