Web Conferencing


We have been busy here at ReadyTalk over the past several months putting on some final additions to our new release this Fall. This release is more of a UI re-design and terminology change to keep up with the changing demands of the web conferencing market. Currently, our product allows you to manage on-demand meetings or web events. The distinguishing feature between events and meetings being that events required registration.

This created two issues for us. Customers doing on-demand meetings did not have access to a whole host of features that the event service allowed. Also, we found that due to the abundance of web conferencing terminology people were confused as to the difference.

Being that simplicity and ease of use are our guiding principles in development, we made some minor changes to the UI and language. After our release in the Fall, we are going to stop using the term "events" and simply use "meetings".

This will accomplish two things. First, it will give those people doing on-demand meetings access to the event features that were previously unavailable to them. Second, it reduces the terminology and allows the chairperson to choose which features they need without having to understand the philosophical difference between an "event" and a "meeting".

It is our goal to make products that are quickly grasped to ensure that our customers are at their most productive. I would love to hear your feedback on this change.
