More than 75% of our users indicated that they had switched to MeetingBurner from GoToMeeting or WebEx.
Ladera Ranch, CA (PRWEB) February 07, 2012
Today MeetingBurner is releasing their fast, elegant, and free webinar platform to the public.
Designed as a contemporary alternative to GoToWebinar and WebEx, MeetingBurner saw overwhelming demand during their beta period – registering more than 20,000 small business users and hosting over 100,000 meeting attendees.
The catalyst for releasing MeetingBurner to the public today was a recent survey sent to all users of the platform, says President John Rydell.
“More than 75% of our users indicated that they had switched to MeetingBurner from GoToMeeting or WebEx. More than 80% loved their experience enough to share MeetingBurner with somebody else, and 88% responded that they liked it so much that they would pay for it upon release,” says Rydell.
Rydell goes on to say “We set out to build a BETTER webinar platform than the incumbents and give it away for free to completely disrupt the industry – the feedback we received after our most recent release was enough to convince us we’re ready to open the doors, and compete head-to-head with the big boys.”
MeetingBurner is launching with three versions available:
- MeetingBurner Free – Fast, beautiful, and always 100% free. Up to 15 participants in online meetings, integrated phone conference line, email support, and no ads to your users like other freemium solutions.
- MeetingBurner Pro– $39.95 a month. Everything in FREE + up to 50 participants, full telephone support, meeting recording, enhanced security encryption, and more.
- MeetingBurner Premier - $99.95 a month. Everything in PRO + up to 1000 participants, telephone support, autopilot meetings, PayPal integration, meeting analytics, and more.
MeetingBurner’s download-free interface lets participants join a meeting up to five times faster than existing solutions, and users overwhelmingly selected “Ease of Use” as their favorite feature of the platform.
“The big online meeting solutions known to most of us are old and tired while those offered by new startups don’t have the polish, reliability or features that business users need,” said Rachel Homer, MeetingBurner’s lead programmer. “We wanted to offer the most robust yet easy-to-use web conferencing solution on the market without the headaches or the unwanted advertisements.”
