ClickMeeting Conference Call
Audio visual conferencing has come a long way. Standard features now include customizable meeting and waiting rooms, plus interactive presentations. So far so good. But wait, all of these, plus social media integration? And instant Google translation in 52 languages? For up to $30 per month? Welcome to ClickMeeting.
ClickMeeting's goal is to make it both possible and profitable for small to large enterprises to integrate the ClickMeeting API platform with in-house applications, CRM, and CMS systems. Recent new integrations include Salesforce, HubSpot, and Slack (the latter only required your Office 365 credentials). ClickMeeting web conferencing works with any browser, any platform, anytime. All you have to do is choose the media that fits your message.
ClickMeeting User-friendly Portal
ClickMeeting is web-based software requiring no installation. In short, it's a customizable conferencing facility ideally suited to medium-sized enterprises. ClickMeeting's mobile apps for Apple, Android, and BlackBerry devices put the entire meeting, literally, in the palm of your hand. With a full range of conferencing tools available to mobile users, it's even possible to host a meeting away from the office. Schedule a new meeting, chat with fellow participants and record your discussions with a single click. More advanced features like screen sharing, video conferencing and virtual whiteboards are also available to even mobile users. It's rare to see a web conferencing app that's as wide-ranging as this, so if you or your associates travel a lot, this is definitely one to consider.
ClickMeeting is also compatible with Linux and Mac. An added bonus is that it requires a relatively low bandwidth (max. 1024 kbps for attendee, 2048 for presenter) meaning a smooth audio-visual experience for customers and presenters, avoiding any awkward technical glitches.
One outcome of utilizing ClickMeeting is highly efficient business growth, with less time spent traveling to meet clients. Your employees can hold interactive presentations, product demos, even review contracts with clients, all at the client's convenience, from anywhere in the world, using laptop, computer, iPad or just a cellphone.
ClickMeeting Captures Spontaneity in Any Language
Web conferences are often loaded with great content − some created for the event, some generated on the fly. ClickMeeting lets you easily record, archive, and reuse that valuable content across your organization. You can upload your own media or pull images onto your whiteboard directly from your Flickr account, ready to share.
Users can present, share, discuss, edit and brainstorm on the fly scribble ideas all over the whiteboard for analysis later and all while managing the interaction to ensure productivity stays high.
One of the other great features about this service is that it utilizes Google Translation in order to provide users with a chat translator facility. You can translate the transcript of the meeting into one of over fifty languages, which is perfect if you are conferencing with overseas participants.
ClickMeeting Private and Moderated Chats
ClickMeeting makes it easy for anyone to deliver a powerful presentation,even beginners. You have complete control over how you present your content and how you interact with your audience.
Presenters can play YouTube videos, share presentation files, conduct polls of attendees and share desktops, all from the portal of ClickMeeting, making for a polished performance with no wasted time finding files and no set-up time required. At any time during presentations attendees can show their status or express their opinion using a dropdown menu and the presenter can initiate private chats and moderate discussions to keep meetings concise.
ClickMeeting Selective Screen Sharing
Desktop sharing allows for remote observation of one's computer. You can share the whole screen or just part of it to show your fellow workers or visitors what you're working on, end of year report or demo the new product. Remote screen control allows you to go one step further, allowing you to take the control of someone else's screen and operate it from your location.
Own-brand Meeting Rooms with ClickMeeting
Make a great impression and promote your brand to customers, prospects and partners. Add your logo, graphics, brand colors and more to your Meeting Room and Waiting Room giving the impression of a high-end branding exercise. How you present your company and products impacts how you're perceived by the marketplace and that affects buying decisions. Take advantage of full use of your own logos, colors, fonts and graphics.
At the end of the meeting, you can easily garner instant feedback with the built-in polling tools. Quickly create polls and surveys to get the information you need while it's still fresh in the minds of the attendees. You can choose between single-choice, multiple choice and open-ended questions and all responses get listed immediately so you can track opinions. Use this information to improve your performance and develop your meeting strategy and delivery.
Limited Room for Growth
As your company grows, you may form multiple departments, product lines and partner programs. At the same time, you may have unique units inside your organization, like event planning, design, etc. With ClickMeeting, there is the scope to create different brand themes for each group.
The only downside is that while you can host an unlimited number of meetings, only 25 attendees can log into a given meeting. For some businesses, this might be more than enough, but for larger organizations you might need to consider an alternative.
So what sets ClickMeeting apart from other video conference service? Price, for starters. Packages start from $30 per month, not the cheapest but with a lot more features than its lower-price competitors, and it beats its closest (and more expensive) competitor, Citrix, with the added options of calendar and social media integration, and video recordings.
Verdict - Good
It looks great, it handles well, and it's compatible across the board with no loss of features on cellphones or iPads. Plus you can splash your brand across it with a few clicks of the mouse. As a medium sized business, you will find that the myriad of features could make it the perfect choice for your audio and video conferencing needs.
