Company meetings can take place over the Internet, using a video conferencing program, over a worldwide conference telephone call or even by text, although this last method still isn't going to hold the professional merit to be used often. Texting is frequently found to be cold and impersonal and not the proper way to hold a company meeting.
However, we are able to communicate with other businesses and associates through many of the other technological discoveries that have come to light in the last few decades. The use of telecommunications, such as email and instant messaging, has replaced time consuming and often costly phone calls between companies that might be thousands of miles away from each other. We are able to communicate with companies around the world easily, notifying them of changes instantly or proposing new deals, terms or conditions. The savings in telephone calls alone are enough to prompt many companies to invest in the latest technological communication devices. Cellular phones have become hand held computers, able to go on the Internet, make purchases, conference with others, instant message and, of course, text.
