Zoom has been synonymous with video conferencing ever since the office moved to the home. Businesses are using the feature-rich and easy to use platform to hold meetings, deliver webinars and create virtual workspaces.

Zoom addresses the three biggest pain points of conferencing: starting a meeting, booking a meeting and sharing content.
