Mikogo Launches New Version for Free Online Meeting Software
With greater capabilities and ease of use in mind, Mikogo launches its new version with several new features backing up its cost-free solution to online meetings. Meeting scheduler, session recorder, whiteboard toolbar, and a conference call service are just a few of the new features offered in Mikogo version 2.0, providing a powerful screen sharing tool available for everyone at no cost.
Mannheim, GERMANY November 27, 2008 – The desktop sharing tool, Mikogo (http://www.mikogo.com), announced the enhanced version of its free online meeting solution with the addition of several new features. Mikogo now offers new conferencing capabilities, such as meeting scheduler and a voice conferencing service, as well as an easier-to-use platform to deliver a comprehensive solution for anyone looking to collaborate over the Web.
While version 2.0 includes a tweaked interface to enhance usability, the major focus of this release is undoubtedly the addition of several new free Mikogo features. All current and future Mikogo users can now organize online meetings with the following new features:
– Meeting scheduler
– Conference call service
– Session recording
– Back monitor
– Copy/Paste meeting info
– Instant screen build-up
The new Mikogo features had already received some buzz in the blogosphere, with the announcement of an upcoming version on the product’s blog, where Mikogo users voiced their excitement for the new version. Renowned software bloggers have also already posted about what can be expected from the delivery of the new Mikogo version.
One feature in particular that is bound to gain heavy attention, is that of the free meeting scheduler. This new addition to the Mikogo feature list enables users to plan their online meetings ahead of time, and then email the details to the invited participants along with a reminder email for the organizer. Ideal for the small business owner to keep track of their online discussions with clients, colleagues and business contacts.
Since its initial launch, the free screen sharing has been a great success with over 65,000 users joining the Mikogo Community. The Mikogo Forum, and recently the new Mikogo Blog (http://www.mikogo-blog.com), have in fact contributed to some of the new version features.
“As the Mikogo Community continues to grow, we receive numerous emails, forum posts, and blog comments, providing suggestions and feedback on our software,” explains Mark Zondler, Co-Founder of Mikogo. “This has played a large role in which features we targeted to include, and consequently the new version is a reflection of user demand.”
Backing up the official and successful launch of its Skype Extra, while at the same time answering to the requests of the Mikogo Community, the new version is set to turn some heads with its free offering bringing a greater solution to the Web collaboration table.
