DEFINITION of 'E-Meeting'

INVESTOPEDIA EXPLAINS 'E-Meeting'

The most important aspect to the majority of web-based e-meeting software is Voice over Internet Protocol, or VoIP. VoIP allows voice transmission over the internet, which is the key to facilitating a real-time e-meeting. Some software also allows participants to create graphs and charts in real-time, as well as record and save the entire meeting so it can be reviewed at a later date.
