A:

An e-meeting is any meeting that takes place over an electronic medium, as opposed to the traditional face-to-face form. The most common form of an e-meeting takes place over the internet using any form of web-based meeting software. These software packages allow busy businessmen and women to hold meetings with others from anywhere in the world, without having to travel to predetermined destination.

Almost all e-meeting software platforms allow meeting participants to speak to one another in real-time through the use of Voice Over Internet Protocol, or VOIP. VOIP eliminates the need for a telephone or conference phone and allows participants to visually see those which they are meeting with.

Many e-meeting packages include virtual whiteboards, which allow participants to write and draw models and charts in real-time. As well, many packages allow participants to record and save the e-meeting so that it can reviewed at a later date or viewed by those who were unable to attend the original meeting.

With the advent of web-based technology and the ever expanding global business landscape, e-meetings have become a popular method for companies to hold meetings at a fraction of the cost of the traditional face-to-face meeting.
