Online meetings are a major business expense especially when coupled with audio conferencing. NextUC leverages Microsoft Enterprise Lync and provides it from the cloud to deliver online meetings, audio conferencing, web conferencing and screen sharing to its clients. The experience is powerful and impresses even the most hardcore online meeting users.

Microsoft has done a great job of rounding out the Lync driven online meeting experience. Where they excel is the integration to the tools that users leverage on a daily basis. This integration includes being able to launch a screen sharing online meeting from inside of Word, Excel or other Microsoft documents without having to go to an outside tool to do it. By simply allowing users to go to the “File” menu to drive meetings, Microsoft Lync online meetings eliminates cost, streamlines the meeting experience and drives user adoption… all of which are key goals in a unified communications deployment. NextUC takes that handoff and wraps an easy evaluation, 5 minute turnup and no obligation wrapper around the tool for businesses.

Online meetings with Microsoft Lync have almost every required feature addressed as well. NextUC uses the full Enterprise Voice feature set of Lync and also does the full integration for Lync with PSTN for calling as well as audio conferencing. This allows users to see the active talker, dial out to add users to the conference, do on touch meeting launch and attendance from desktop or mobile devices, and share desktops or applications as needed.

“Online meeting usage by our customers is growing significantly month over month,” says Bob Barnes Vice President of Product Sales and Marketing. “Additionally the customer satisfaction feedback indicates that the product is doing very well as a replacement for other leading online meeting options.”

Industry averages for the number of attendees in an average online meeting is actually very small. Some estimates have the average meeting attendance at just over three participants. There are clearly requirements for large meetings with advanced features, but NextUC has found that its Lync platform is more than able to handle over 99% of online meeting with integrated audio conferencing requirements.
