TMC (News - Alert) recently unveiled its list of winners for the 2012 INTERNET TELEPHONY Excellence Awards, which recognize the creators of technology which demonstrate both leadership and innovation in the global IP communications industry. INTERNET TELEPHONY honors the best IP communications solutions in the world, while recognizing companies that have products which help improve clients' business.
Among those listed is StartMeeting, a state-of-the-art audio and Web conferencing service.
"The INTERNET TELEPHONY Excellence Awards were created to honor companies that have created products and services that excel in the IP communications industry," says TMC CEO Rich Tehrani (News - Alert). "StartMeeting's state of the art real-time desktop sharing and integrated audio conferencing services are designed to help businesses communicate more effectively and affordably and we congratulate them on this honor."
StartMeeting's real-time desktop sharing and audio conferencing boasts cutting edge features such as screen sharing, easy-to-use meeting recording, high definition sound and a customizable online meeting wall. While competitive with services like WebEx or GoToMeeting, StartMeeting actually offers comparable audio and Web service for a much lower price point. StartMeeting's pricing starts at a mere $19.95 per month for basic service, while competitors charge anywhere from $39 up to $55 per month.
StartMeeting provides more than just conferencing, also offering cloud-based recording of screen sharing and audio meetings, with the integrated ability to share recordings on Facebook (News - Alert) and other platforms such as Windows and Mac OSX. Meanwhile, the conferencing service's customizable meeting wall can be personalized with colors, logos and profile pictures, along with the ability to upload files and links that support the online meeting, rather than having to e-mail documents.
In an interview with TMC earlier this year, StartMeeting VP of Channel Development, Greg Plum, said that what makes StartMeeting special is its incorporation of classic Web conferencing features with newer features such as fully integrated toll, toll-free, and HD VoIP audio options.
