CHANNEL PARTNERS — GlobalMeet, PGi’s (Booth #1523) newest Web conferencing product, is debuting this week at the Channel Partners Conference & Expo. GlobalMeet, launched in early 2011, was designed to fix traditional Web conferencing services that are intimidating and don’t work the way real people do.
“Our second new virtual meeting product, GlobalMeet, was built to fully maximize the unique selling opportunities in the channel," said Ralph Hawkins, PGiPartner Channel, senior vice president. “PGi is committed to bringing intuitive and easy to use products to market and then maximizing their availability by making those products available to our partners within the channel."
As a cloud-based service, GlobalMeet is delivered through the browser. The company says there are no frustrating software downloads required for meeting guests. Users can easily schedule, start and manage meetings from their desktop with GlobalMeet’s add-in for Outlook. A convenient auto-connect feature makes dial-in numbers, passcodes and long URLs a thing of the past. GlobalMeet users can move easily from an audio call to collaborating on the web with the click of a button, share their screen in crystal-clear quality, personalize meetings with webcam video for all participants and connect globally with international support.
“Old school conference calls and frustrating Web conferencing services no longer cut it for many businesses," said Boland T. Jones, PGi founder, chairman and CEO. “People need to get real work done, in real time. GlobalMeet takes the everyday audio meeting online and provides simple, hassle-free and affordable web conferencing for any business."
GlobalMeet joins PGi’s suite of virtual meeting products, which includes its iMeet solution that gives people their own personal meeting room online that combines video conferencing, social networking and media and file sharing – all in one place. PGi also offers its ReadyConference suite of enterprise-class audio conferencing services, scalable for any business need.
