AnyMeeting Tops 250,000 Users by Focusing on the Needs of Small Business

(Marketwire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/27/12 -- AnyMeeting, a leading provider of web conferencing for small business, today announced it has achieved a milestone in reaching over 250,000 registered users. With product features, pricing, and integrations tailored to the needs of small business, AnyMeeting is emerging as a leader in the small business web conferencing market, a market that is expected to reach $1.4 billion by 2016.


Fueling this growth are a number of recent integration efforts, including those with VMware's Zimbra collaboration suite, which serves tens of millions of small business users; NetSteps, a leading technology provider to the network marketing industry; and the Financial Planning Association, the largest membership organization for personal financial planning experts. AnyMeeting is also the top install among the hundreds of Productivity apps in the Google Apps Marketplace.

In addition, AnyMeeting has continued to launch features that simplify the online meeting experience. Most recently, AnyMeeting released fully integrated phone and VoIP audio, giving participants more freedom in choosing their preferred audio option, and presenters more flexibility in controlling who can speak and be heard by placing the meeting in Discussion Mode, Q&A Mode or Listen-only Mode. Other recent improvements to the platform include a Content Library, which gives meeting hosts online storage for their presentation materials, as well as YouTube video playback integration during live meetings.

"We are extremely pleased with the tremendous growth the company has seen over the last two years, especially considering that the majority of that growth has been fueled by organic, word of mouth referrals," said Costin Tuculescu, president and CEO of AnyMeeting. "Small businesses get excited when they discover all of the features and functionality that we offer, and are compelled to spread the word." Additionally, AnyMeeting has increased its investor reach beyond Southern California, raising additional funding from Northern California angel investor groups Sand Hill Angels and Keiretsu Forum. This comes in addition to new funding from current investors including leading Southern California angel networks.
