With EventBuilder and Live Meeting anyone can build a professional online event quickly, using powerful tools to produce great results
Portland, Ore. (Vocus) October 30, 2007
Encounter Collaborative, the provider of EventBuilder™ web event management services, today announced that it was the first partner to complete Microsoft Office Live Meeting 2007 certification for its audio conferencing offerings. Certification of EventBuilder audio conferencing means users can take advantage of new capabilities in Live Meeting 2007 while using EventBuilder to manage their online events.
Encounter was the first partner to integrate audio conferencing and receive certification for Microsoft Office Live Meeting 2005 and continues that trend with Live Meeting 2007, completing the work in record time and passing the certification process quickly and efficiently.
Using EventBuilder with Live Meeting 2007 provides users with the ability to build professional web events in under an hour for web-based meetings, online training and large customer events. New audio communication features supported by EventBuilder in the new release include:
- Two-way phone or VoIP offers participants a choice for integrating conference audio.
- Break out sessions, called audio sub-conferencing, that allow multiple topics within the event to be covered more efficiently.
- Support for both Live Meeting 2005 and Live Meeting 2007 customers.
“With EventBuilder and Live Meeting anyone can build a professional online event quickly, using powerful tools to produce great results,” said Ian Widger, Encounter’s president and chief executive officer. “The integration with Live Meeting 2007 is a great example of how EventBuilder combines industry standard software with high-quality event services to offer our customers choice and flexibility in how they deliver outstanding events to their customers, partners and employees."

Using a web event service provider combines the ease and speed of use they expect from Internet marketing technologies, like Live Meeting 2007, with the complex and feature rich experience they need to deliver to their customers.
