AnyMeeting Makes it Easier to Schedule Meetings
AnyMeeting is one of the nation’s leading providers of Web conferencing and video chatting services aimed specifically towards small businesses. One of the biggest draws of AnyMeeting’s software is the convenience it offers, while remaining significantly less expensive than other options that are targeted at larger corporations. Realizing this, AnyMeeting has added a new feature that will make using their software even easier than before.
Now, businesses using AnyMeeting can easily schedule video conferences from their own native email or calendar applications, without the need to download any additional software or extensions. This is accomplished through the use of an automated email address, firstname.lastname@example.org.
People need only to include this email address in the list of recipients when sending out an email or calendar invitation to a meeting. All of the people included in this list will then receive another email automatically that includes a link to the online meeting room, as well as detailed instructions for getting started. In addition, the email provides a phone number to call for those who would rather dial in to the meeting over the phone, instead of using their computer. People can join into this meeting without creating an account or downloading any additional software.
This new practice put forward by AnyMeeting perfectly exemplifies what businesses both large and small are looking for in video conferencing software. Obviously, when investing in a Web conferencing platform, companies care very deeply about reliability and affordability. However, it is also becoming increasingly clear that corporations also value simplicity and ease of use very highly. People want their video conferencing service to make their lives easier, not the reverse. This creates a general aversion to having to create accounts or download new software. With this in mind, AnyMeeting has set out to make their video conferencing software as simple as possible, which will definitely appeal to small businesses.
