GoToMeeting Wins Best of Elearning! Award

Web Conferencing Service Praised by Real-world Users with Prestigious Readers’ Choice Award for “Innovation and Vitality”

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. – January 19, 2009 – Citrix® GoToMeeting®, a Web conferencing solution from Citrix Online, a division of Citrix Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CTXS), received Elearning Magazine’s Readers’ Choice Award for Best Web Seminar Solution. Products were reader-nominated, with only 43 solutions from more than 845 ranked as “Best in Class.”

“Recognition of this type is increasingly important as more companies deploy e-learning initiatives to impact business and improve efficiencies,” reported Catherine Upton, Group Publisher of Elearning! Magazine. “The innovation and vitality of the e-learning market is evidenced by the high number of new products being honored.”

“We developed GoToMeeting with our customers in mind to make it easy for them to participate in online meetings from anywhere,” said Elizabeth Cholawsky, vice president of products and client services at Citrix Online. “There is no greater honor than to receive praise from peers and real-world users who benefit from our service every day.”

GoToMeeting makes it easy to meet, present information, demonstrate products and provide training online, allowing users to do more and travel less. With the latest release of GoToMeeting, e-learning professionals are benefiting from free VoIP and audio conferencing for both Mac and PCs. One-click meetings are possible with this combination of VoIP, phone and web conferencing for small-group online meetings. Anyone with a PC and an Internet connection can host, attend, and participate within seconds.

One company that uses GoToMeeting for e-learning is First Insight Corporation, a leading provider of technology for the eye care industry. First Insight conducts live, online courses each week to educate distant customers about key product features. “GoToMeeting is good for e-learning because it’s simple and allows for plenty of back-and-forth interaction,” said Donna Lehmann, director of marketing at First Insight. “This also saves on costs down the line since customers call tech support less. The usual customer reaction is, ‘Oh, this is really easy.'”

Readers and learning professionals nominated and voted for products through Elearning! Magazine’s online ballot. Each ballot was reviewed and validated by the editorial team. Winners are the leading vote earners from each category and are featured in the January, 2009 edition of Elearning! Magazine and at
