PHOENIX (PRWEB) June 2, 2008
Across corporate and educational organizations as well as state and federal government, iLinc users collaborate with peers, employees, customers, partners and learners in real-time via formal and informal virtual meetings, virtual classroom sessions, webinars and support sessions.
In addition to addressing the strategic requirement organizational leaders have for a robust, dependable, cost-effective collaboration tool, iLinc 10 provides key metrics around cost savings and the positive impact this type of strategy has on the environment. As well, this newest version of iLinc provides administrators even greater control over security configuration for each session and users.
"iLinc 10 is a direct result of listening closely to our customers," said Frank Gartland, Vice President, Product and Technology for iLinc. "They need an easy-to-use solution that increases engagement levels during meetings, virtual classroom events or webinars, which is exactly what we've delivered."
Continued Gartland, "We know effective online sessions will enable more people to get the job done in a forum that provides real, measurable cost savings. Of course, with the cost of travel today, this is more important than ever and it's essential that everyone start to consider the environmental impact. The new iLinc Green Meter illustrates both types of savings in a clear and concise manner."
In addition, iLinc 10 provides the following additional benefits:
Significantly Enhanced User Experience (for Windows and Mac)—Cleaner design provides arguably the best user experience on the market today with more intuitive usability for all user roles while improved support for multi-point videoconferencing enables multiple users to share video simultaneously for an experience more like actual "in-person meetings." The interface also includes much improved chat management via different tabs for private, person-to-person instant-messaging conversations, and major improvements to features like Polling, WebSync, Breakout Groups, File Transfer and session recording. Content, Event and Learning Management Rolled into One—The new iLinc 10 Communications Center is a Web-based Session Management System that may be the most underestimated application in Web conferencing. Typically used by administrators to set up users, configure security settings and set session defaults, or used by session leaders to set up sessions and manage external content, the Communications Center features a completely new interface. This new interface provides a number of benefits, including easier-to-navigate tools; enhanced usability to manage sessions, content or users; and the ability for any organization to provide and support blended learning programs to their user population, including live training sessions, session recordings, asynchronous content like tutorials and interactive exercises, or related documents in virtually any format. Enhanced iLinc 10 Green Meter—Administrators see organizational efficiencies at a glance with the new iLinc 10 Green Meter. Total cost savings, carbon emissions and total distance not traveled are displayed in the new interface while more detailed information is available via several Green Meter reports. Administrators can also customize several variables to match their organization's specific policies. With iLinc 10, all attendees can see how much savings are being generated during each session and/or their own personal contribution over time. This tool is available from within an iLinc 10 session and from the iLinc Communications Center. Integrated Telephony Options Designed for Web Conferencing—When determining the best option for providing audio to participants for a particular session, customers of the new iLinc 10 have even more choices. The interface is fully integrated with audio conferencing providers like Premiere and ConferencePlus so session leaders can control who is speaking with a mouse click. Additionally, iLinc offers high-quality Web-based audio that enables everyone in session to clearly communicate via computer-based microphones and speakers, easily configured with a new Audio Wizard. Finally, iLinc 10 also supports integrated sessions with both traditional telephone callers and users listening via Internet audio.
