Master agency Cory Communications Inc. has added StartMeeting to its list of providers.
StartMeeting provides audio and Web conferencing services some for free, as the sister company of FreeConferenceCall.com, and some for a fee.
“We are very excited … to offer StartMeeting to our clients and agent partners,” said Jack Zoblin, president of Cory Communications. “We have found the product to be easy to use and competitively priced.”
Monthly costs start at $19.95 for 50 people, making StartMeeting a less expensive alternative to competitors such as WebEx and GoToMeeting. Agents earn commissions of between 25 percent and 35 percent, depending on the rates they offer to their customers. Access options include toll, toll-free, and an integrated high-definition VoIP platform. Pricing ranges from .029 to .039 cents per minute for toll-free access.
Features include cloud-based recording, with the ability to share files on Facebook; reservationless calls; permanent and exclusive credentials for meeting hosts; screen sharing; the ability to mute and lock calls and hold Q&A sessions; and customizable hold music and greetings for participants. There’s also Meeting Wall, where end-users personalize colors, logos and profile photos. Hosts can upload files and Web links, and manage recorded conferences.
“We look forward to working with Cory Communications,” said Greg Plum, vice president for channel development at StartMeeting. Jack Zoblin and his team are well respected in the channel and they have established a loyal following of customers as a result of their focus on making sure the customer is not only satisfied, but truly happy with their experience.”
