LiveOffice Debuts IMConferencing's Meeting Command Center
More Powerful and Easier to Use, New Version of IMC Makes Multimedia Web Conferencing Simple and Affordable for Businesses of All Sizes
BOSTON, March 3, 2004 -- LiveOffice Corporation (http://www.liveoffice.com), the leading provider of web sites, compliance systems and collaborative applications, today will unveil its latest release of IMConferencing (http://www.imconferencing.com) at the Instant Messaging Planet Spring 2004 Conference and Expo. Building on IMConferencing's (IMC) already robust suite of collaborative features, LiveOffice will introduce the Meeting Control Center (MCC), which sets a new standard for participant ease-of-use and control by allowing hosts to quickly customize the meeting interface to best meet the needs of each collaboration session.
Merging the immediacy of instant messaging with the powerful collaboration features of web conferencing, LiveOffice's IMC has led the way in making web conferencing easy-to-use and affordable for businesses of all sizes. IMC's unique interface enables users to launch impromptu or scheduled online meetings in just seconds. Once within the meeting, MCC's intuitive interface makes the entire meeting process seamless from start to finish, and gives presenters a level of flexibility and customization that is not available with any other web conferencing application. Using IMC's MCC, presenters are also able to see participants in several different views including, Conversation, Conference Table or Auditorium and easily set participant rights to the appropriate level of interactivity.
"This version of IMC provides users with the most intuitive online meeting experience possible," said Matthew Smith, chief operating officer of LiveOffice Corp. "Our new Meeting Command Center enables both hosts and participants to quickly select the collaboration functionality needed to make each meeting a total success."
Current users have already applauded IMC's fully integrated conference calling feature, which includes reservationless conferencing as well as the option to have LiveOffice's automated attendant dial-out to participants at the start of any web meeting. During the Instant Messaging Planet Conference, LiveOffice will also introduce attendees to IMC's new, professional-quality audio and video features, which give businesses of all sizes hands-on access to technology that many predict will soon become key tools for effectively conducting everyday business activities. Specific functionality highlighted at the show will include VoIP, multi-point video, conference session archiving, polling, whiteboarding and seamless application sharing.
"In January, we became the first company to deliver a fully integrated instant messaging and web conferencing solution to the business market," continued Smith. "This release of IMC demonstrates our commitment to the market and ability to leverage LiveOffice's years of experience in delivering collaborative solutions that truly meet the needs and expectations of our customers."
LiveOffice will demonstrate the latest version of IMC in booth #20 at the Instant Messaging Planet Spring 2004 Conference and Expo taking place today and tomorrow at the World Trade Center in Boston, MA. In addition, Smith will speak today at 10:30 a.m. ET on a Conference panel regarding the adoption, use and regulation of instant messaging within the enterprise.
The new version of IMC will be available in May 2004.
