DEFINITION of 'E-Meeting'

An e-meeting is a meeting that takes place over an electronic medium rather than face-to-face. E-meetings are commonly held via web-based software. E-meetings allow individuals in disparate places to meet without traveling.

BREAKING DOWN 'E-Meeting'

Web-based e-meeting software runs on Voice over Internet Protocol, or VoIP. VoIP allows voice transmission over the internet. 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. The application of web technologies in this way has contributed to business productivity by reducing travel costs and travel time that would normally be necessary. This technology has also given rise to virtual enterprises consisting of people who operate as a business but who interact primarily via electronic means.
