Web Conferencing Technology

The Citrix Online solution suite is a Web-based service that can be used from any Internet-connected PC, and does not require client-side installation. Citrix Online provides 24/7 monitoring, maintenance, live US-based support, and unlimited upgrades, at no additional charge.

WebEx applications are quick and easy to deploy, and considerably less expensive to manage than traditional on-premise applications, for a much lower TCO. Customers take advantage of the opportunities offered by the WebEx SaaS delivery model to manage costs, gain economies of scale, and pay as you go. WebEx is not a standard software product that you purchase and install on your computer. Cisco's powerful web conferencing software is delivered as a service through your web browser.

With ReadyTalk, participants join meetings with ease because there are no complicated downloads or special software requirements. The Flash-based player for participants makes entering a web conference quick and easy. The 2% without access to Flash aren't left out - participants without Flash can join via Java. ReadyTalk supports Windows, Mac and Linux operating systems and Internet Explorer, Safari and Firefox browsers.
