AnyMeeting Achieves 875% User Growth, Releases Ad-Free VersionWeb Conferencing Service Finds Success With Focus on Small Business Market (November 10, 2011)
HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/10/11 -- AnyMeeting, the completely free web conferencing and webinar service, today announced 875% user growth over the last 12 months. By addressing the web conferencing needs of the small business community, AnyMeeting has grown to over 75,000 customers. The company is venture backed, with $780,000 in funding from Tech Coast Angels, Pasadena Angels and Maverick Angels.
The flexibility of AnyMeeting makes it ideal for any type of meeting, large or small. Small businesses and independent professionals are using AnyMeeting for sales demos and presentations, online training, lead generation, team meetings and more. In fact, during the last 12 months, users of AnyMeeting have spent a total of 750,000 hours on meetings (the equivalent of 85 years), reaching over 610,000 meeting attendees in 187 countries.
The vision for AnyMeeting started in 2009, when its founders saw an opportunity in the marketplace to bring the power of web meetings to everyone. They realized the best way to reach cost conscious small businesses was to offer it for free. They did this by launching as an ad-supported service that provides the same features as premium paid services offer. By displaying advertisements in a non-intrusive way, AnyMeeting has been able to create a sustainable business model that offers a truly free and full featured web conferencing solution.
Taking the next step in expanding the service to a broader spectrum of small business users, AnyMeeting has just implemented an ad-free version in response to requests from users, who would like to have the option of removing the ads from the meetings they host. The feature set for the ad-free version is exactly the same, the only difference being that no ads are displayed.
"Through our ad-supported model, we have been able to provide a no-cost solution to small businesses that is just as good as the paid solutions on the market," said Costin Tuculescu, president and CEO of AnyMeeting. "Now, with our ad-free solution, we're able to deliver the same feature set, without ads, at a price point that is very attractive for small businesses."
Customers can easily change from ad-supported to ad-free and vice versa on the AnyMeeting website. AnyMeeting offers two inexpensive levels for the ad-free version, 25 attendees for $17.99 per month and 200 attendees for $69.99 per month.
Based in Orange County, California, AnyMeeting is bringing the power of web meetings to everyone by making the tools free, simple and easily accessible. AnyMeeting offers a complete web meeting service built on the company's proven Software as a Service platform. Meeting hosts are able to invite up to 200 attendees per meeting with no time limits, and enjoy a full range of features including integrated video conferencing, screen sharing, application sharing, recording and social media integration. AnyMeeting is the best choice for small businesses, independent professionals and just about anyone who could benefit from online meetings. Current investors include Tech Coast Angels, Pasadena Angels and Maverick Angels. For more information, please visit www.AnyMeeting.com.
