Frankfurt/Germany (PRWEB) November 10, 2006
The first Website to provide a vendor-independent assessment of online meeting tools has now gone live at Webconferencing-test.com (http://www.webconferencing-test.com). The portal provides comparisons of all leading solutions – including Microsoft Live Meeting, Macromedia Breeze (now called Acrobat Connect Professional) Webex, and GoToMeeting from Citrix.
Online meetings used to be costly affairs, relying on video-service and telecoms companies. But that has now changed. Thanks to increasing competition, the growing popularity of PC-based technologies, and a wide choice of providers, today's solutions are more user-friendly and more affordable. In fact, they are now commonplace office tools. Web conferencing is, for example, typically used for phone- and Internet-based customer and employee meetings, online training and support.
The portal not only compares the functional scope of online meeting tools, it also judges how well they meet real-world needs. Analysis is based on key user requirements such as ease-of-use, security and cost. For example, the need for training is assessed, and how easy it is to organize spontaneous online meetings.
Webconferencing-test.com (http://www.webconferencing-test.com) compares the potential savings offered by each of the tools in comparison to conventional, on-site meetings. It also reviews pricing policy and cost transparency. While some solutions offer a flat rate, others have complex pricing models based on multiple components.
