Ease of Use & Access for Everyone
Web Meeting 6 features a simplified interface that makes it easy and intuitive to share slides, applications or the computer desktop. Users will also find that managing participants and co-presenters continues to be a streamlined process.
Building on a reputation for industry-best platform and browser support, Web Meeting 6 utilizes a Flash participant application that does not require a download and connects participants to a conference in less than 10 seconds. ReadyTalk also supports participants joining a conference with Java, making it the only conferencing provider to offer two participant applications. This ensures that everyone can join a conference; on virtually every computer platform.
"The introduction of Flash is huge; it makes entry into the conference fast and the speed that images, applications and slides are rendered continues to impress me,” said Michael Roseman, SVP at Astadia, Inc. "The new user interface is intuitive and makes the audience and presenter experience even better than before. Web Meeting 6 raises the bar on ease of use and web conferencing experiences.”
Sophisticated Marketing Tools
Web Meeting 6 makes it easy to promote webinars on social media sites with integrated tools for sharing to Facebook and Twitter. Conference organizers can quickly share invitation details and a link to a customizable registration page. Following a webinar, recorded content can be shared via Twitter, podcasted or embedded directly into Facebook and blogs with just a few clicks.
"The ability to reach a wider audience is essential to any organization hosting webinars; Web Meeting 6 makes interacting with social media channels a seamless process,” said Alli Libb, online event program manager, American Marketing Association. "Now, we can quickly embed recorded webinars directly to our community pages to share with our fans or embed them in our site as a resource for AMA members.”
In addition to integration with social media sites, Web Meeting 6 includes campaign management and detailed reporting. This allows conference and webinar organizers to identify how participants are hearing about an event and maximize ROI.
