The goal of Foundation Source is to help families with private foundations focus on mission, strategy and family priorities rather than back-office administration and compliance tasks. Glance helps them to easily communicate that goal to potential clients
Arlington, MA (PRWEB) January 17, 2006
Glance Networks, Inc., creators of the “one-button simple” Glance™ screen sharing service, today announced that Foundation Source®, the nation's leading provider of support services for private foundations, is capitalizing on the simplicity and affordability of the Glance screen sharing service, providing live demonstrations of the company’s services to potential clients.
“As the nation's leading provider of support services for private foundations, handling the back-office administrative tasks that keep private foundations running smoothly and in compliance with state and federal regulations, we needed an easy, trouble-free solution to demonstrate our services,” commented Daniel Schreck, IT Specialist at Foundation Source. “We originally used another screen sharing service for our web demonstrations, but constantly had issues with attendees not being able to connect, and it was very costly. Glance is a simple, affordable solution for our live presentations of up to 15 clients at one time. With Glance, people interested in our services have no trouble connecting and can now easily view our demonstrations without the distraction of a difficult set up."
Used primarily as a sales tool for hosting instant web demos and presentations, Glance provides a quick and dependable web demo service. Anyone online can show what’s on their PC screen (software applications, presentations, documents, designs, pictures) to anyone else online, and up to 15 others can view the host’s screen. Glance includes Guests Connect for Free™ flat-rate pricing and the ability to connect instantly to nearly any PC, Mac or Linux computer without downloading software.
“The goal of Foundation Source is to help families with private foundations focus on mission, strategy and family priorities rather than back-office administration and compliance tasks. Glance helps them to easily communicate that goal to potential clients,” commented Taylor Kew, president of Glance Networks. “We are delighted that Foundation Source capitalizes on this cost-effective, hassle-free sales tool in order to sell its services.”
Unlike traditional web conferencing, guests are not required to download software to join a Glance session. They are able to connect into a web demo in seconds, with no learning curve. The simplicity and affordability of Glance’s desktop sharing service is particularly conducive to small-to-medium sized businesses (SMBs) and organizations that need a simple alternative to web conferencing.
