GoToConference Delivers Instant Collaboration for Dispersed Teams
Citrix Systems (News - Alert), Inc. (Nasdaq: CTXS) today introduced GoToConference,
a business video conferencing package that transforms any room into a
conference room to help teams collaborate. GoToConference combines
in-room hardware with GoToMeeting video conferencing in a single
solution, offering a new way for teams to instantly conduct both
impromptu and scheduled meetings from the conference room.
Businesses are increasingly incorporating small working spaces into
their offices for team huddles, but with employees increasingly
dispersed in different locations, organizations need a simple and
affordable meeting solution that supports anytime teamwork, despite
geographical barriers. Coupled with the fact that 20-25%
of the U.S. workforce is teleworking at some frequency, the
cross-office collaboration that occurs in today's modern workplace
creates the demand for an easy way to bring distributed teams together.
GoToConference aims to eliminate all the frustrations commonly
associated with setting up, joining and managing meetings with employees
by providing "conferencing in a box" for a seamless meeting experience.
For companies looking for an all-in-one video conferencing solution for
rooms of up to 10 people, GoToConference provides a means for
collaboration that improves productivity. For team members located in
the conference room, users simply enter a meeting ID from the
GoToConference home screen to initiate a meeting in a
GoToConference-enabled room. Once the meeting has begun, remote team
members can join from any location on the device of their choice using
the GoToMeeting web, desktop or mobile app.
Compared with the steep costs of purchasing hardware and software pieces
separately, at a fraction of the price GoToConference includes all the
high-quality video and audio equipment needed to easily start or join
GoToMeeting sessions. The package comes with a Revolabs (News - Alert) UC 500 USB audio
device, 1080p HD Logitech C930e webcam, ASUS Chromebox, a wireless
keyboard and mouse, as well as an annual GoToConference subscription.
All devices work together seamlessly, allowing an IT or AV technician to
set up a video conferencing hub in minutes and making it easy to
implement the same solution across all of a company's meeting rooms.
