If your business is not taking advantage of video conferencing then it is missing out a lot probably.
According to a report, more than 94% of businesses report that video conferencing increases their productivity.
94% – that’s huge, right?
Also, businesses are able to cut their travel costs down by 30% by using video conferencing for meetings, says a report.
Proficonf is one of such platforms which offer a real-time high-quality video conferencing. It’s a browser-based tool and very easy to use too.
I am writing this Proficonf review after using the tool for more than 3 weeks now.
What is Proficonf?
Proficonf is a professional tool offering seamless video conferencing experience with its adaptive communication technology.
The best thing? You don’t even need to install any application on your computer and it is quite easy to get started with.
Just visit proficonf.com, sign up, create a room and share the link with all the participants. They will be able to join the room just by clicking on the link – without even creating an account.
1. Document Management
While sharing any document, you first need to upload them to a different cloud storage service and then share the link.
Proficonf has got that covered with dedicated document storage and management option. Just drag and drop the document in the side pane while conferencing, and can be shared instantly.
2. Conference Recording
You generally need extra software to record your online video meetings, but not while using Proficonf.
All the meetings can be recorded with just a simple click and those will be saved in the document storage. You can download the recorded meetings or share them with someone as a link.
This feature provides you with the HD video recording.
3. Speedy Room Creation
Yes, while using Proficonf, it becomes quite easy to sign up, create a room and invite attendees to the meeting.
And, the best part that I liked:
Attendees can join the meeting even if they don’t have a Proficonf account. Yes, all of your attendees don’t even need to create an account at Proficonf in order to join the video call.
4. Calendar Management
Why use a third-party calendar management app to monitor your meeting appointments and other important to-do tasks?
Proficonf has an inbuilt calendar functionality which can be used in order to manage all your meetings appointment and to-do tasks. And, the management is quite easy to use too.
5. Multiple Modes to Communicate
It’s not built just for video calls but there are other modes of communication too. You can use the tool for audio calls, whiteboard sharing, screen sharing, to share media and any other file types.
And, these modes make sure that you make your point crystal-clear to all the participants.

By using the free plan, you can always test out if it meets your requirements or not before going for the paid plans. And, there is no time limit on the video conferencing even in the free plan.
7. No Software Download Required
Getting started is so easy that you don’t even need to download or install any software or app on your device in order to start using Proficonf. You just need a web browser and the service works well even on the mobile devices.
Everything happens just in a browser.

If you’re using video conferencing platform which acts even a bit laggy then you should definitely consider switching to Proficonf. The video call quality is buttery smooth and consistent.
In most cases, you won’t need any other tool to manage your online meetings, they have added almost all the necessary features to the tool. From managing your appointments by using the calendar feature to hosting your files to share during the conferences – there’s everything that you need.
I would highly recommend everyone to use the tool at least once and I’m pretty sure that HD calls and recording feature will hold you forever.
