Timico is to launch a web conferencing tool in October to run off its VoIP offer.
The ‘Meet Me’ web conferencing facility is available to Timico VoIP customers, athough they can also invite delegates without VoIP lines to conference calls.
It enables conferences for up to 25 participants. Those involved can send commands to the conference host on a web interface (such as ‘raise hand’ to speak), and also exchange instant messages and computer files with participants.
Files can be viewed by all participants by uploading them to the Timico server for sharing on the web conference. The conference host can also use an arrow to highlight parts of the document.
Timico head of the indirect channel Iain Sinnott (pictured) said: “The further the distance of a meeting, the better the value of this proposition. The return on investment is easy to see when you look at the mileage that can be saved.”
Pricing, commission and revenue stream are yet to be set, but Sinnot said it would cost below £40 per month.
