AnyMeeting, the free web conference and online meeting solution for small business, recently announced the integration with VMware Zimbra (News - Alert) Collaboration Server to come up with a combined solution called AnyMeeting Zimlet. With the solution, users can easily schedule, launch and manage AnyMeeting online meetings all from within Zimbra.
Compatible with both PC and Mac platforms, AnyMeeting allows the users to send e-mail invitations. The users can also earn money by selling tickets to the webinars. It’s completely integrated with company’s custom registration forms and PayPal’s (News - Alert) merchant service. Moreover, users can create buzz and drive attendance by using the social media integration feature to automatically promote the meetings on Facebook and Twitter (News - Alert).
"We are very excited to work with an industry leader like VMware," said David Gerken, VP of Business Development at AnyMeeting. "It's an important step in our mission to bring the power of online meetings to everyone."
VMware Zimbra is a robust messaging and collaboration solution designed for the post-PC era. Built on the power of VMware’s virtualization and cloud expertise, Zimbra simplifies IT and sets the standard for web and cloud based collaboration with a smarter mailbox that enables users to connect to their personal clouds. Simplified management, advanced mobility and private and public cloud options make Zimbra, with more than 85 million paid mailboxes, the preferred solution for large and small businesses, service providers, government and educational institutions worldwide.
"Online meetings are a vital part of doing business today," said Andy Pflaum, senior director, VMware Zimbra strategic alliances. "The AnyMeeting Zimlet takes advantage of Zimbra's extensibility to provide users with an easy-to-use web conferencing solution that can make managing meetings from within the Zimbra platform even more convenient."
Last year, AnyMeeting integrated into the Google (News - Alert) Apps Marketplace, allowing companies using Google Apps to provide a free Web conferencing solution throughout the organization. The Google Apps integration allows AnyMeeting users with a Google or Google Apps account to have a single sign-on solution for scheduling or immediately starting an online meeting.
