Then IBM LotusLive: Meetings is for you!
Most people want an easy-to-use conferencing service but demand that it be delivered from a well known software provider. With LotusLive: Meetings offered by InterCall, that’s precisely what you get. There are three easy reasons to choose LotusLive.
It’s easy to buy.
Too many pricing options and additional charges for each little add-on can sometimes confuse everyone and slow down the decision making process. How many licenses do I need? Which tier is the best for my organization? Is there a set up fee? What if I go over my pricing package agreement? Are there overage charges detailed in my contract? Lotus Live: Meetings offers simple and affordable pricing packages. It’s named user pricing, but it’s unlike any other. It works like this: “Price x Units” That’s it. It really is that simple.
It’s easy to launch.
Lotus Live: Meetings is a lightweight browser-based offering, so all you need is the browser on your computer and you are ready to connect instantly—whether you are meeting with one person or 999. No required downloads for participants means fewer meeting delays. There is no custom site creation or building branded pages, which allows you and your participants to always access LotusLive: Meetings through one centralized login page. And, forget about ever having to search for conference codes before you join every call. Now you only have one permanent conference code for your LotusLive: Meetings account.
It’s easy to use.
Surveys show that 98% of web conferencing users use two features: presentation and application sharing. Most users are looking for a lightweight tool that meets those needs and is easy enough to start using without hours of tutorials or training classes.
Take a look at some of the features included in LotusLive: Meetings:
Sharing and Remote Control - Share select applications or your entire desktop and pass control
Recording - Record audio and web content as offline media or produce self-contained Flash formatted presentations
Hand raising - Ask questions and tally results based on animated raised hand images, controlled by the attendees
Videocasting - Share presenter webcam video up to 125 participants
Chat - Chat with individuals or send broadcast messages to all attendees
Multiple presenters - Facilitate collaborative working sessions by clicking an attendee name and passing control
Summary report - Receive a summary email at the end of each web conference for reporting of participants’ join/exit times and polling results
The nice thing about LotusLive: Meetings is the basic, intuitive interface and toolbar. You can take charge of your meeting content without needing someone else to run the show.
We’re proud to offer InterCall customers and IBM fans a conferencing solution that defines easy. Take a minute to check out LotusLive: Meetings. Just like buying, launching and using it, choosing Lotus Live: Meetings is easy too. See a demo here.
