GoToMeeting allows you to host a virtual meeting with up to 25 attendees. This version of software is a 30-day, full-featured trial, but you will have to register and provide your credit card information. After the free trial, you can purchase the software by paying either monthly or yearly subscription fees. Most of the engine used for this application does not need to be downloaded, so installation of the executable is easy and fast.
The setup goes smoothly, and within minutes you will be able to create and start your online meeting. GoToMeeting allows participants to connect using Windows, Mac, Android, and iOS operating systems. The maximum allowable 25 connections keeps network lag to a minimum and allows meetings to proceed smoothly. Participants can connect to the audio portion of the program via phone or through an integrated VoIP system. The program also acts as a whiteboard, allowing the presenter to draw and highlight onscreen. Administrative features include logo integration, toll-free number integration, flexible security options that align with your company's policies, meeting logs, and attendance tracking. The administration control panel center can assign positions to those applying to be at the meeting and monitor whether those positions are used or not.
GoToMeeting offers an all-in-one service for conducting online meetings and is relatively easy to use. If you're still using teleconferences to keep in touch, this is a service worth checking out for the tools it gives the users to enhance communication.
