Just Add email@example.com to Recipient List of Any Email or Calendar Invitation; No Account Needed
HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA–(Marketwired – Mar 18, 2015) – AnyMeeting, a leading provider of web conferencing for small business, today announced the simplest way yet to schedule conference calls. Using this completely free service, anyone — including those without AnyMeeting accounts — can hold conference calls by simply adding firstname.lastname@example.org to the recipient list of any email or calendar invitation. When sent, all recipients and the sender immediately receive an email from AnyMeeting with the conference call details included (read more at www.anymeeting.com/talk).
For example, if a consultant wants to schedule a phone conference with her client team, she can simply send a meeting invitation from her calendar tool of choice (e.g. Outlook, Google Calendar, etc.) and include email@example.com among her invitees. She and all her invitees then immediately receive a follow-up email from AnyMeeting with all the conference call details. There are no additional downloads or apps to install, and an AnyMeeting account is not required.
This patent-pending method of launching and scheduling phone conferences without an existing account — extensible to online meetings as well — is available only from AnyMeeting, and is provided to everyone in the U.S.
Users can later choose to upgrade to AnyMeeting’s complete online meeting tool to enjoy its full range of online meeting features including screen sharing, video conferencing, slide sharing and more.
“As the conferencing industry matures, we’ve found that one thing customers struggle most with is scheduling and inviting others to their meetings. With firstname.lastname@example.org, anyone anywhere — even those without AnyMeeting accounts — can launch and schedule phone conferences from the email and calendar tools they already use, eliminating friction,” said Costin Tuculescu, CEO and founder of AnyMeeting. “It’s another important step forward in our goal of providing the easiest, best conferencing tools for small business.”
AnyMeeting pioneered the small business Web conferencing market in 2011 with a completely free, full-featured and easy-to-use web conferencing service tailored for small business. Since then, it has grown to more than 750,000 small business users of both its free service and low-cost “Pro” options. AnyMeeting offers a complete web conferencing and webinar service built on the company’s proven Software as a Service platform. Meeting hosts are able to invite up to 200 attendees per meeting with no time limits, and enjoy a full range of features including integrated video conferencing, phone conferencing, screen sharing, presentation sharing, recording and social media integration.
