Avitage Delivers Presentation Library Integration for WebEx Meeting Solutions

Integration Allows Avitage and WebEx Customers to Customize Presentations within Web Meetings

WALTHAM, Mass and SANTA CLARA, Calif., June 7, 2006—As part of the continuing efforts to improve sales presentation productivity, Avitage, a marketing and sales effectiveness company (MSE), has developed a seamless integration to the on-demand web meeting services of market leader WebEx (Nasdaq: WEBX). The integration allows joint customers to instantly access the Avitage multimedia content library to customized presentations while holding WebEx meetings with customers and prospects.

Avitage allows organizations to manage PowerPoint slides, Macromedia Flash modules, synchronized audio and streaming video assets in a central library. Customers can then further streamline the presentation process by assembling a custom show by selecting any slides or groups of slides in the library and then directly launch a WebEx meeting.

“We are committed to providing the most complete solutions for our customer’s collaboration and online communications needs,” said Gary Griffiths, vice president products at WebEx. “The Avitage library makes it easy for corporate users to find the most up-to-date slides they need for a WebEx meeting from a central, intuitively organized slide library. The ability to mix and assemble slides online, and then launch a WebEx meeting, makes it even easier to collaborate or present, and reduces pre-meeting preparation time and effort.”

The Avitage library allows companies to keep individual slides up-to-date even while sharing slides across a large organization, or using key slides in multiple presentations or “message modules”. A complete corporate library of slides, together with the online assembly function, makes it easy to quickly build custom shows that are relevant to each situation or audience.

Jim Burns, president of Avitage commented, “For years we have conducted WebEx meetings with customers and prospects. Unlike web seminars, where we have weeks to prepare a presentation, a customer web meeting is a much more dynamic and collaborative experience. With all slides intuitively organized in a central library it makes it fast and easy to prepare for a WebEx meeting. But this integration is unique in the way it allows us to pull slides from the library via the WebEx platform to respond to customer questions or to supplement the original slide set”.

The convenience of a web meeting is enhanced by easy access to the slides required to conduct a web meeting. Message impact is enhanced by having the right messages and up-to-date slides that carry those messages. This solution furthers company efficiency through sharing and re-using communication assets.
