The cost of live meetings is very high and rising with no end in sight. Travel, car rental, lodging, meeting room cost, refreshments, evening entertainment, and printed handouts can easily run over $1,500 per person for a single meeting. This is considerably higher for international travel. Perhaps the biggest cost is the out-of-office lost productivity during travel. That is a major expense to both the event host and the guests. And these costs do not factor in the risks involved in today's travel environment.

Webex™ and Placeware™ are well-known companies offering technology for web conferencing and online meetings. They use the Internet to share applications and show pages. Their flagship products are very expensive and require the use of the telephone for voice.

For instance, the cost of Webex’s "pay-per-use" conferencing product is 33¢ per minute per person, plus another 20¢ per minute for the conference call. Placeware has a "pay-per-use" product that is 35¢ per minute per person plus the telephone bridge.

Basic event meetings cost $27 per hour per person plus $1,500 for the "Event Production Specialist" that is used to set it up and operate the meeting, plus $600 to $1,500 per event for Registration Services. So a 100-seat one-hour event starts at $4,800. Their 5-seat product costs $375 per month, not including voice, while our 10-seat Room is $37 per month INCLUDING voice!

Voxwire is changing that, and because of our buying strength, we have negotiated a large quantity discount for our customers.

Almost everyone has computer speakers, but because of the lack of demand, very few have microphones.
