Virtual Meeting Rooms are very different - so make sure you check the following criteria:

No1 - Pexip Powered 

Pexip are both Microsoft and Uniquely Google certified partners and lead the industry in ensuring that every device and platform talk to each other.

No 2 - Flexible Commercials 

From the outset check you can:

Save a minimum of 40% off BT conferencing rates, rates start from 2.5 pence a minute.

Check the phone numbers used are not national or premium rate numbers, that cost your guests dearly. 

Next ensure your supplier has PAY AS YOU GO as well as subscription rates. 

No Minimum Room purchases, a lot of suppliers stipulate a minimum of 10 rooms must be purchased.

Monthly and Annual subscription rates enable you flexibility and to save cash.

These enable you to launch your brand not market someone else's. The big brands often want you to sign your customers on their agreements and then they prospect them to take them direct in month 10 or 11 of the 12 month contract.

14 Day Trial

Check that you get offered 14 day trials and there's an easy sign up and conversion process at the end of the trial period. Most companies limit the attendees or the number or length of meetings, which when your evaluating and trying a product its the last thing you need when your just discovering the flexibility of virtual meetings.
