Yugma Free Web Conferencing

If anyone is looking for a cross-platform web conferencing tool this is your answer. This tool will work with PCs and Macs as well as with any web browser. It’s JAVA based and is the easiest conferencing setup I have run across on the internet. I’ve looked at them all from Adobe Connect to WebEx to Microsoft LiveMeeting and none of those products have the cross-platform ease of use as Yugma. And the kicker is that it’s FREE to use!!

Now lets not get to carried away. There are some features of Yugma that you have to pay for. Here is a list of what’s included in the free version vs. the paid version. The free version allows you to:

  • Have up to 10 attendees to your meeting
  • Ability to share your desktop
  • Audio Teleconferencing (they have a long distance number you can call and you enter your meeting ID to have a conference call)
  • Use of Annotations and Whiteboard
  • Ability to change presenters
  • The use of public chatting within a session
  • Customer support VIA the FAQ’s and Forum online

The paid service which comes in flavors of 10 ($9.95/mo), 20 ($29.95/mo) and 50 ($99.95/mo) attendees per meeting has all these features plus:

  • 100MB of file storage for document collaboration
  • The ability to share your keyboard and mouse controls with other attendees
  • Ability to sign-in to there web page and schedule a meeting in advance (this allows you to send out the meeting information to attendees before the meeting actually starts)
  • Ability to record a session for future playback
  • Customer support VIA web and phone

Give this product a try. I love the easy at which you can host and attend a meeting and the simplicity of the tool. If you have tried other web conferencing tools you will notice this right away. Let me know what you think. If you would like a free trial period of the paid product please let me know. I can get you setup as I am a customer of Yugma.

    Scottie,

    Thanks for the write-up. If it’s okay, we’ll send you info (when we finalize in the next couple of weeks) on being an affiliate agent. Then you could benefit from referrals.

    Of interest to readers:

    Yugma will have virtual stage at Web 2.0 (April 15-18; San Francisco). At Yugma, we believe good ideas deserve to be shared, regardless of the
    resources of their creators. That’s why we are using our software to turn our booth at the Web 2.0 conference into a virtual stage. We’re calling the project Stage 2, and are currently seeking individuals and companies who wouldn’t otherwise have a presence to share their ideas and products.

    If you have content to share (best practices, innovative idea, new
    invention, product or service), please visit
    http://www.yugma.com/stage2 to read more information about participating. Slot are limited, so please enter your submission as soon as possible.

    Sincerely,
    Karel Lukas
    COO, Yugma
