TechCrunch today posted an article on VSee. We like it a lot and recommend you go read it! Click here to get there.
However, I’d like to take just a quick second to clear up a couple points:
First: We don’t actually claim to have more collaborative tools than the rest…only Skype! Skype has a sub-par desktop share that only works when video is turned off. And it’s a screenshot rather than a direct share. Everyone else (WebEx, GoToMeeting, Nefsis, etc.) generally has a full complement of collaboration tools. Our claim to fame is that we make it A LOT EASIER to use those tools. It literally takes only 5 to 10 minutes to become an expert user.
Next: Our “document sharing” is really “window sharing”. Not just “application sharing” even, but “window.” What’s the difference? You can share ANY window, be it an application (i.e., Word or AutoCAD), a folder (i.e., Documents or the entire C:/ drive), or even the command screen! And you can choose to give complete control over any window you share—it’s neat to run AutoCAD on your 4 GHz quadcore from my 1.6 GHz netbook—for collaborating, or turn control off for one-way presentations.
I appreciate the shout out on bandwidth and encryption. We do shine there, but I think we shine across the board. (I confess I’m biased.)
In a nutshell, although VSee is great for presentations, it’s built to get work done, whether that work is sales, support, or just working with teammates from around the globe.
I will add one last bit, though: We’ve had 14-way conversations! The only limitations are really CPU and bandwidth. 12 and under (usually 6-8) is suggested because there’s always someone in a meeting who is on a terrible network or using an underpowered computer. I confess I’ll be excited to have that 20 x 20 meeting!
