Why use a webcasting tool?

Blog  >  icastGo  >  Why use a webcasting tool?

Meeting or webcast

Each type of event has its own specific features. For instance, a collaboration tool or a meeting tool, such as Microsoft Teams is perfectly suited to your team meetings, exchanging with colleagues and presentations with just a few people. In these conditions, Teams is an easily-accessible and efficient option.

However, such a meeting tool is not suitable for events with a large number of participants requiring anonymity or for carrying out a vote, for example. The organiser of a virtual event, such as an AGM or a seminar, will want to ensure that the webcasting is hassle-free and that his messages reach all participants. In every event, your message is important and you want to control it.  A specialized webcasting platform offers you such a control tool using either the facilitator/stakeholders’ interface, participants’ interface or monitoring questions. Your presentation consistency is guaranteed.

Depending on the occasion, you will need a meeting tool and a webcasting tool, each tool having its strengths and weaknesses. There is no one miracle platform.
