Microsoft Office Live Meeting in the Retail Industry

Live Meeting gives you the power to work together with colleagues, customers, and suppliers, no matter where you are. For online meetings, training, and events, Live Meeting is the effective meeting solution that enables you to collaborate with either individuals or large groups—without leaving your desk. With meeting attendees participating from their PCs, you can kick off a project, brainstorm ideas, edit files, collaborate on whiteboards, and negotiate deals at a fraction of the cost and hassle of travel. I use Live Meeting on a daily basis for collaborating with my colleagues on documents, attending and presenting training sessions. I love the fact that there is a record option in Live Meeting sessions so when I have conflicts, I can always fire up the recording at a later time.

For the 700 field consultants supporting the more than 5,800 convenience stores operated by 7-Eleven and its franchisees across the United States and Canada, every Tuesday is meeting day. 7-Eleven gathers its staff at divisional offices to attend a weekly videoconference broadcast from headquarters. Looking to reduce travel time and costs incurred by field consultants who are stationed anywhere from an hour to a half-day drive from the closest office, the company evaluated several Web conferencing solutions, including WebEx, Genesys, and Microsoft® Office Live Meeting, presented by Microsoft partner InterCall. 7-Eleven chose Conference Place powered by Live Meeting because of its ease of use and its integration with Microsoft Office System programs that the company was already using. Live Meeting has been rapidly adopted within 7-Eleven for Web conferences across the company. CLICK HERE for Case Study.
