Gotomeeting - The Online Meeting Solution

By: Bryan Jackson

Having to travel to conferences and meetings held in distant locations is a thing of the past, thanks to technology developed by Citrix Online that allows for holding meetings over the Internet. GoToMeeting is a peerless online meeting software. It has an easy to use and intuitive user interface that allows you to forget about the technology and instead focus on the meeting. You can start a meeting and conduct it professionally with very little training. This means that with GoToMeeting you won't be wasting precious time trying to learn how to host an online meeting, you will be up and running in no time at all.

What can you do during an online meeting? You can demonstrate new products to potential clients, share slideshows, collaborate with colleagues, or edit documents together. You can conduct online meetings with the same in-person features available to you as when you are holding the presentation in front of a live audience. In a conference room you might use a white board or chalkboard to demonstrate specific information. With GoToMeeting you use your computer to draw, highlight and point to items of interest on the screen. All meeting attendees can follow your presentation in real time.

Having more than one presenter is another possibility with a real time GoToMeeting enabled online meeting. Several presenters can handle the keyboard and mouse control, and you can instantly change the presenter so that any meeting participant can present to the rest of the group.

There are many times when it would be beneficial to record and save a meeting. Maybe you are conducting a training session that all new employees will need to attend regardless of when they are hired. Or you may have individuals who are unable to attend a scheduled meeting. Whatever the reason for needing to record and reuse a meeting, you won't find GoToMeeting wanting. It allows for full meeting recording and playback.

GoToMeeting also gives you privacy by making it possible to share specific applications with meeting attendees, rather than all the applications and files on your computer. For your convenience GoToMeeting is fully integrated with the most popular applications on your desktop or laptop, including Microsoft Office, email and instant messenger programs.

When you create a meeting in GoToMeeting you can also use the free audio bridging service. The meeting information sent beforehand to your target audience will include a phone number that attendees dial to connect to the meeting. All participants can speak to one another during the presentation. There are no additional charges, but the standard long distance rate for each caller does apply.

Who can attend an online meeting with GoToMeeting? Everyone with reasonably fast access to the Internet, whether on a PC or a Macintosh, can attend a GoToMeeting meeting or web conference. The demands made on your Internet bandwidth are modest by any standards.

Whether your attendees are located next door or in another country don't matter in any way. Testing the software is risk free. You will only be able to tell if GoToMeeting is right for you by using the thirty-day free trial and scheduling and conducting your own meetings.
