If you are in technology or communicate with colleagues and clients located in different areas of the globe, then you have probably used an online screen share or collaboration tool to host a virtual meeting.
There are many providers of free and paid "virtual meeting" and webinar hosting solutions. You are probably familiar with WebEx, GoToMeeting, GoToWebinar, Fuze Meeting, and of course there are others like Join.me to name a few. In recent months software giants like Salesforce.com and Oracle have been quick to acquire these types of companies.
While most of the tools mentioned above get the job done, the UIs are typically slow and clunky.
This week MeetingBurner has released its sleek, fast, and easy-to-use remote meeting product to the public.
MeetingBurner offers a download-free interface lets participants join a meeting via a link sent to their email. Not only is it the load time fast, but the interface is simple and easy to use. Meeting attendees have the option of joining via phone or Skype. Administrators can record meetings, and share on YouTube with a click, because we all know that recorded webinars have value post event.
A standout feature is the meeting temperature option, which allows participants to rate the meeting as it is taking place. Admins can see instant data from participants to see how they are faring and adjust accordingly. Other bells and whistles include the ability to charge attendees directly from the registration screen via PayPal, and iPhone, iPad and Android apps to view meetings.
MeetingBurner offers a free version, which allows for up to 15 participants in online meetings, an integrated phone conference line, email support, and no ads. The pro-version ($39.95 a month) includes support for up to 50 participants, full telephone support, meeting recording, enhanced security and more. And MeetingBurner Premier ($99.95 a month) allows for up to 1000 participants, telephone support, autopilot meetings, PayPal integration, meeting analytics, and more.
