Subject: Web Conferencing Software

This memo is used to determine the best type of Web Conferencing software to be used. I did some research on various types of software, (InfiniteConferencing, Intercall, ClickMeeting) and have found that the best for our company is InfiniteConferencing. The pros on this software far outweigh the cons.

The InfiniteConferencing software is a fair price of $35 a month, and with a company growing as quickly as we are, I believe that this is the best web conferencing program for us. This software allows up to 1000 participants, instant pulling, one click publishing with Microsoft Office, Full Desktop or Specific applications sharing, easy control passing, allows you to invite members on the fly, full Microsoft Outlook integration, and fully customizable session settings ("Http://www.onlinemeetingsource.com/web-Conferencing-Reviews/infinite-Conferencing-Review/", 2013). InterCall and ClickMeeting had many good credentials as well, but weren’t best suited for our company. InterCall could not be hosted on a Mac, which is used by many of our employees. The price per month was $42 dollars and didn’t allow as many participants. ClickMeeting only ran about $10, but was not as user friendly and required knowledge of the software. The functionality and security did not score as high as the other two types of software.

After having done this research I feel more at ease to present this information to you and feel that I have chosen the best type of software to be used for our Web Conferencing. InfinitedConferencing is not only fair priced, but scores off the charts in every category. If you have any questions or comments, please contact me at xxx - xxx – xxxx. Again, thank you for your…...

...Luis Cubilla ENG/221 Technical Writing Fundamentals Zachery Koppelmann January 28 2013 The organization of the memo from Hugh to Abram is partially organized. Hugh does not stray from his subject much and appears to stay on point with what he wants to address. The letter has an average format with a standard intro body and conclusion along with a signature which should be included in all e-mails. The clarity however leaves little to be desired for but at least Hugh admits that he does not understand his own employee or his friend. Hugh talks about how he was advised not to use certain enterprise software’s with by his friend and how he could not understand much of how the situation should be handled or how he should move forward with his business plans. The writing style is very unprofessional; it almost seems more like Hugh is writing to a friend rather than a co-worker or colleague. There are no real formalities Abram is only addressed by name once and the overall feel looks like something a brother would write to his family member. The memo seemed to be a little disrespectful in some ways. First Hugh is talking business matters with a friend rather than Abram, secondly it appears Hough’s friend is providing the basic of warnings that any programmer should look for but Hugh appears to be leaning towards his friend’s advice rather than Abram who as Hough states “respects his professional approach”. To add further insult to injury Abram has been asked to not...

Corporate Memo Student ENG/221 February 30, 2014 Instructor Corporate Memo Memorandum To: CIO Jeff Bridges CC: CIO Support Team From: Student Date: 6/30/2014 ------------------------------------------------- Re: Choices for Web Conferencing Software Choosing the Best Available Software There are many web conference choices available for almost any purpose. Our team would benefit greatly from most of them, but their value varies greatly by cost, usability, and resource usage. I have selected three different programs for your review. Software Selection Firstly, all of our onsite users are currently using the Microsoft Windows operating system. Some users located offsite use Macintosh OS X. This would have presented a problem in the past, but luckily almost every choice today allows for use in both cases. Software Number 1: Cisco WebEx This software is excellent. It allows for almost any application that could be desired in a business setting. The price is $19.99 a month for the annual plan, it allows for HD video conferencing, desktop sharing, mobile phone access, remote control, VOIP, and can be initiated by a single host computer. Software Number 2: Adobe Connect This software also allows for basically anything we could expand to use. It’s price is $45.00 a month per host. The service offers HD and SD video conferencing, desktop sharing, mobile phone access, remote control, VOIP, great document sharing support, and like all others listed here, a virtual shareable......

...Date: 9/1/2014 To: My Manager From: Alton Chinnery Subject: Corporate Memo Based on my research about communication via web, I came up with a great idea for our manager to communicate with us. I think Citrix Gotomeeting would be idle and the perfect software to communicate with one another at the job sights. It’s great for weekly conference calls. Gotomeeting would have a capacity of approximate 1 to 1000 people per conference. It’s fast and has a variety of options to conference with, for example you can be able to video chat with other people on your team, at the same time. This software will allow you to video chat, audio chat, and privately chat with any member you would like to. “High-quality integrated service with unlimited meetings, free mobile apps, IM, and simultaneous video and screen sharing” (M.

Web conferencing is a social tool we can use to have long time social affairs with our counterparts. The organization will have the ability to bring our offsite get-togethers thru web conferencing. The program that we chose will save extra time and money while bringing offsite and the organzation together as one. There are five web conferencing programs that were researched, Cisco Webex, Fuze Meeting, Gotomeeting, Infinite Conferencing, and Intercall. As shown underneath in (Table 1) most essential characteristics are discussed. During the research it was found that, FuzeMeeting and CiscoWebEx would not be able to support our needs. FuzeMeeting doesn’t have the capabilities to support VOIP, video or webcam capabilities. CiscoWebEx was not capable of recording the meetings. While Gotomeeting and Infinite Conferencing have max number of individuals that can be on during web conferencing. The one program that meets all of the organizations needs is Intercall. Intercall has the availability to support 124 participants, VOIP, video or webcam capabilities, and recorded meetings. We can also develop with this venture and secure a splendid web conferencing mechanical assembly for future usage. Table 1: Features Researched for......

The ability to communicate clearly to get your intent and ideas across so that others understand your message and act on it is one of the primary qualities of leadership. Poor writing and communication in the military is mostly attributed to lack of proper training, lack of confidence and lack of leadership. Taking a soldier out onto the battlefield with a poor communicator could lead to potential deaths of inanest soldiers. With that being said this this is an opportunity to help a striving soldier to become a better leader in the military world by requesting to take a Business Writing Course at Kaplan University in Jacksonville Florida .

...MEMO #1 Para: Gerente General De: Gerente de producción Asunto: Recomendación sobre política de cumplimiento de estándares razonables para trabajadores de contratistas extranjeros. Fecha: Jueves, 21 de mayo del 2015. El motivo de la presente es para dar mi recomendación sobre una de las políticas acerca del cumplimiento de estándares para los trabajadores de nuestros contratistas extranjeros. Pienso que es importante que como organización nos involucremos con los trabajadores de nuestros contratistas mediante una vigilancia de cumplimientos de estándares o normas. A esta política, agregaría la prohibición del trabajo infantil. Con esta política, vamos a asegurar que estos trabajadores tengan el derecho a trabajar en buenas condiciones por su seguridad, paga justa (no la que actualmente perciben, que es ridículamente baja), y procurar su salud. Generalmente en países asiáticos el trabajo infantil es normal, parte de su cultura, pero no de la nuestra. Existen razones por las cuales el trabajo infantil no es correcto, entre ellas el derecho que tienen a estudiar, jugar, etc. Con el cumplimiento de estándares razonables evitaremos futuros conflictos puesto que los descuidos en seguridad a este personal pueden desencadenar en problemas sociales (activistas laborales) y económicos así como ha ocurrido en los últimos años donde empresas estadounidenses han sido partícipes de esta situación. Como organización nos debe preocupar esto, debemos asegurar que aquellas......

...Memo From ………………. To…………….. Date: January 21, 2015 Issue: Recording of advertising costs without considering accounting principle Mr…………. Determination of Facts of the situation: Preparation of financial statements for external use is my first responsibility as an employee of sporting goods chain. I need to prepare quarterly statements for the ending period June 30, 2005, which will be given to National Savings & Loan. CFO asked me to take advantage of the 1, 200, 000 cost of advertising campaign which was conducted in May and June of 2005. This capitalization can save from quarterly operating loss as well as sustain standing of company’s goods with creditor. CFO have confidence that these commercials can increase the sales in May and June and the effect of advertising will continue in July. While according to (Nelson, 2011), matching principle stated that expenses should be reported on income statement in the same period in which the revenue, to which those expense are associated, is earned because in some situations it difficult to identify that in which period expenses incurred and in which period revenue is earned related to those expenses such as advertising. In this situation principles of accounting indicates that the recognition of advertising should be made as expense in the period it is incurred. Identification of ethical issue and stakeholders: The ethical dilemma is whether my responsibility to meet the request of CFO to take the advantage of......

...MEMO TO: Social Media Team DATE: November 15th, 2015 SUBJECT: Changes in blogging mandate After much consideration, it has been decided on behalf of the Public Relations department that it is in Tech Garden’s best interest to implement a legal regulation check for our firm’s blog. An arrangement with an attorney has been made in order to maintain our continuous lack of legal strife. While we recognize that this adjustment may impact the initial quality of the blog’s content, we feel it is important to demonstrate our commitment to practicing CSR policies and keeping a safe community. This new mandate will in turn lower the risk of any litigations and reduce exposure of liability. Beginning next month, a draft of your blog entries will be screened by an appointed attorney before being approved for publishing. This process will include filtering out any traces of the following: * Defamation of any persons, corporations, or products * Copyrighted or trademarked work * Invasions of privacy * Demonstrations of legal and regulatory neglect * Disclosed information * Discovery disasters Although we understand that not many corporations feel the need to execute the use of a litigator for social media purposes, we want you to understand that they will serve as a collaborator in our competitive advantage over other firm’s. Not only is it internally important for us to have a sense of ethics in our day to day activities, it is vital for the......

It is not only important for us to do business, but it is important for us to do it the right way. We have an obligation not only to ourselves, but to our shareholders, customers, family and most importantly our country. We represent our country wherever our business takes us. As requested, we have studied the strength and weakness of every decision we can make with regards to this very important issue. Our analysis studied every important element. We gathered all important information. We asked all important questions. Based on our intensive study we have come up with the following possible alternatives: 1. We should hold our order and remanufacture it, then send it. 2. We should send the order as is to prevent loss to our bottom line. 3. We should inform our client of the issue, and offer to send the order at a discounted price. All the alternatives we concluded were legitimate in their own right. Any decision we make will have a justification. The most important element in our decision making process will be to evaluate whether or not each decision falls within our values. Our values are our rocks. We cling onto them in hard times. They always lead us. When we step out of our comfort zone, it affects our decision making. We impair our ability to make the right decision and......
