Farmington Hills, MI (PRWEB) September 8, 2009
HBR Labs, developers of ShowDocument (http://www.showdocument.com) announce a significant new release of their market-leading web meeting and online document sharing service: ShowDocument Now.
ShowDocument Now is one of a new breed of Software as a Service (SaaS) applications, available free of charge to users on demand; thereby relieving them from the burdens of software purchase, installation, licensing and maintenance. It brings the power of real-time online interaction and communication to individuals and small- to medium-sized organizations.
New features in ShowDocument Now include dedicated 'meeting rooms', secure online document storage, and mobile device support. Enhancements include simplified session scheduling, extended file format support, and improved session control.
This major new release retains the speed and efficiency of previous versions of ShowDocument - widely recognized as the fastest fully-featured online conferencing and collaboration application - without compromising its ease of use or minimal bandwidth requirements.
- Dedicated Meeting Rooms: Registered users are provided with a dedicated ShowDocument Now 'meeting room' address, which can be shared with colleagues to simplify and speed access to online collaboration and communication sessions.
- Secure Online Document Storage: To enable faster, more efficient and centralized collaboration, ShowDocument Now provides users with personalized online document storage on its secure servers; allowing web conferences to be conducted from any location. Documents can be edited and saved, converted to PDF format, and accessed whenever required.
- Mobile Device Support: A new ShowDocument Mobile utility allows users to view online collaboration sessions on their Windows Mobile Pocket PC and SmartPhone mobile devices.
- Simplified Session Scheduling: ShowDocument Now offers a quick and intuitive method of inviting participants to web meetings by auto-generating a unique session code and URL link, and enables meeting planners to distribute invitations via email directly from the website.
- Extended File Format Support: ShowDocument Now provides support for a wider range of document types, including Word, PowerPoint, PDF and Text files, as well as JPEG images, web pages and video clips. All file formats can be uploaded, viewed and annotated synchronously in real-time, and amendments can be saved to PDF format for future access and distribution.
- Improved Session Control: Participants in ShowDocument Now web meetings benefit from improved interaction, including one-click entry to online sessions, the ability to easily transfer control to other attendees, a Chat window, and access to a full range of Whiteboard text and drawing tools. All Whiteboard annotations can be saved for later review.
- Speed and Simplicity: Despite these significant new and upgraded features, ShowDocument Now maintains its reputation as a market-leading SaaS application: requiring no software download or installation, and minimal bandwidth for online collaboration and communication sessions. Moreover, HBR Labs patent-pending technology allows access through most firewalls, providing an uninterruptible and reliable workflow solution.
