Westell's ConferencePlus(R) Launches New Online Meeting Platform(July 18, 2011)
SCHAUMBURG, IL -- (Marketwire) -- 07/18/11 -- Conference Plus, Inc. (ConferencePlus®), a subsidiary of Westell Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: WSTL), and a leading provider of global conferencing solutions, today announced the launch of ConferencePlus Online Meeting, a new web conferencing platform designed to meet the online daily collaboration needs for businesses of all sizes, from small businesses to large enterprises.
"We're very excited to bring our own web conferencing service to the marketplace," said Tim Reedy, President and CEO, ConferencePlus. "ConferencePlus has long been recognized for providing high quality audio conferencing services that are integrated with web conferencing services from major providers, including Cisco, Microsoft, and IBM. We determined the time was right to offer our own web conferencing platform, leveraging many of the lessons learned from our customers about what they need and what they don't need in a web collaboration service."
Online Meeting leverages the power of Adobe Flash to provide a robust web collaboration experience for all participants without the need to download and install a plug-in or application. "Our Online Meeting service has been designed both to simplify web collaboration for all levels of users and to provide a flexible range of service pricing plans allowing customers to purchase just what they need without a long-term commitment," Mr. Reedy added.
Online Meeting is offered with a large set of standard collaboration features including desktop, application and document sharing, group chat, presenter control passing, recording, and integrated content management. Online Meeting also includes complete audio platform integration for secure dial-out from the audio bridge and full control of the audio conference from the integrated roster. As with all web conferencing services offered by ConferencePlus, Online Meeting is integrated with Microsoft® Outlook and with ConferencePlus' suite of powerful conferencing management tools, My Account Dashboard, View Plus and Share Portal. These tools provide a seamless user experience for arranging and managing conference calls and related conference recordings and content.
"Many of the web conferencing services on the market today have added feature complexity and are offered as a component within a larger Unified Communications (UC) package. While expansive UC services have their place in the market, we believe there continues to be strong demand for an intuitive, low-cost web conferencing service," Mr. Reedy said. "Our Online Meeting packaging and feature set are designed to give our customers more for less. With a larger capacity than most of our competitors' basic offerings, customers can use our tool for both large conferences and small group collaborations without making lengthy term commitments."
Available Online Meeting service plans include monthly and annual flat rates with unlimited web conferencing for 75 or 150 participants. A multimedia per minute pricing option is also available.
