Mannheim, Baden-Württemberg, Germany, 2008/08/04 - With an increase of over fifty percent in less than four months, such rapid success for Mikogo's screen sharing tool could suggest a heavy lean towards quality Web collaboration at no cost, as opposed to the fee-based solutions.
Having reached a user base of more than 40,000 the success of Mikogo's free online meeting solution could indicate that free Web collaboration is rapidly on the rise. This in turn raises some questions for the future of alternative high priced conferencing solutions.
While Web conferences, online meetings and the like, hold valuable benefits for the millions, many who are in need of such technology are left with no alternative but to pass on the opportunity due to the financial expense. Consequently it comes as no surprise that Mikogo's free online meeting solution, with all included features at no cost and with no time limitations, has hit a chord with the Web collaboration community.
With users spread across more than 100 countries and up to 2,000 free online meetings being hosted by Mikogo a day, there are now multiple meetings in action at any minute of the day. “We are happy to provide Mikogo free of charge and allow everyone to benefit from an easy-to-use screen sharing tool,” says Mark Zondler, Co-Founder of Mikogo.
From the small business owner looking for a way to impress and keep in touch with clients, to the student assisting mom and dad with home PC problems from their college dorm, Mikogo users are benefiting from its functionality for a diverse range of needs. “Our users are able to employ Mikogo for teaching, IT support, picture sharing, university projects, club meetings, and more. Everyday people across the world are finding more and more reasons to use Mikogo free online meetings,” continues Zondler.
With rapid growth in its user base, it seems clear that the free screen sharing tool has quickly found its place on the Internet and placed itself firmly in the Web collaboration market. In fact, with Mikogo's recognition and success on the rise, and with now over 40,000 users under the belt, one can expect that the current fee-based web conferencing services are going to have to pick up their game, or find another one.
