Methods of Communicating through Business.

Extracts from this document...


Method of Communicating through Business There are many different ways of communicating through business using ICT and I am going to research and show you the advantages and disadvantages of using some of these methods. Email Electronic mail or email is a means of sending messages, text, and computer files between computers via the telephone network. Because the telephone network covers the whole world, email enables you to communicate world wide. Features of email are: * Sending email to more than one person at once by using: o Cc (Carbon Copy) is indicating secondary recipients of a message: those who are to receive a copy of a message directed to another. o Bcc (blind carbon copy) is a copy of an email message sent to a recipient whose email address does not appear in the message. * Sending an attachment (such as an images, documents, etc.) with an email, so paper is not getting wasting and it will be easier to correct on the computer from the original copy. For example a business document could be attached to an email such as a sale report. This is benefit to a sale manger because he can send all his salespeople a sales summary and they all get the same copy. ...read more.


This is a advantage, rather an using a normal fax machine in cost every time for sending a fax via a normal fax machine so its cheaper in business by sending faxes by using the internet. Wikis A wiki is a page or collection of Web pages designed to enable anyone who accesses it to contribute or modify content, using a simplified mark up language. Wikis are often used to create collaborative websites and to power community websites. The collaborative encyclopaedia Wikipedia is one of the best-known wikis. Wikis are used in business to provide intranets and Knowledge Management systems. So in business everyone can access the wiki in the company so they can edited and put there own input on the wiki. The features of using wikis are: * Wikis can be accessed any where of the worldwide web making it easy to get to. So for example if you were away on a business or training trip. This is an advantage because you could access the work from anywhere from in the world so you can improve and so the other employee will know what to do in your absents. * Information of wikis can be edited or deleted easily from any computer that has internet access * Can be easily set up as a website and webpages can be created or edited or deleted from the computer. ...read more.


* More than two people can be a in a conversation so you could do meeting over the internet. Video Conferencing Video conferencing is a cost effective way to collaborate face-to-face with colleagues who are remotely located. Video conferencing can save you travel time and costs when working with off site personnel. Most users find that they can accomplish in a one to two hour video conference what would take many hours via other means. Features of videoconferencing are * Connect up to many locations worldwide at one time so you can conduct simple training sessions, present sales presentations, or provide company updates, face to face, across multiple sites. * Eliminate travel cost so you can save the planet by minimizing your carbon footprint. * Easily invite customers, employees, and colleagues if they have a webcam with video chat on a computer so you can build strong relationships with your employees and customers. * Works just like email, sending invites directly to there email inbox. For business it could overtake email. This is a disadvantage because email is regarded more important as videoconferencing and email will not be as bad because you will get a better connection. * They can be recorded and the can accessed again so you can take important notes of what happened it the meeting. ?? ?? ?? ??

    He views his running away as a flight from the oppression of the west.
