Mikogo, a provider of the online meeting solution, has released its new audio conferencing options with local landline numbers for over a dozen countries.

This is a great opportunity for the company to provide a better service for its customers, according to Mark Zondler, co-creator of Mikogo. “We can save money for the Mikogo users while improving the quality and efficiency of their sessions, then it's definitely a good result for both us and the Mikogo users,” he said.

The option of local numbers adds a key benefit to the company’s online meeting feature set with free audio conference calls. Thanks to the option of local landline numbers for over a dozen countries, Mikogo users can now save money.

This latest offering has also simplified international conferencing. Company officials said session organizers can send their participants invitation e-mails including local fixed line numbers corresponding to their country, eliminating the need to dial out of the country or incur long-distance charges.

Participants only have to dial the local number provided to them before being prompted for the Mikogo session ID to join the conference call, according to company officials. And since the company offers local numbers for international conference calls, the cost of voice conferencing is “significantly” lowered.

Mikogo is currently offering landline numbers for 18 countries across five continents. Company officials indicated that an additional 21 countries are expected to be added by the end of the year.

Mikogo is a desktop sharing tool full of features to assist in conducting online meeting or Web conference. Mikogo can be employed for product demonstrations, Web presentations, remote support, webinars and more.

Earlier in June, Mikogo announced that its online meeting service, version 4.6, is compatible with Microsoft’s (News - Alert) Windows 8 Release.
