One such customer is ChartMeds, a rapidly growing company that delivers an advanced Web-based healthcare solution for automating medication administration records (advanced eMAR) or Med Passes for residents of state and federally regulated long-term care, nursing, assisted living, troubled-youth and correctional facilities.

Because ChartMed’s business is broadening across a diverse range of residential healthcare facilities, thanks in part to mandates related to the U.S Affordable Care Act (ACA), ChartMeds delivers sales demos, system training and other key customer support services that meet specific scheduling and regulatory requirements for its customers in the U.S. and abroad. The principals at ChartMeds realized that the company could enhance its sales processes with online demos and deliver superior, customized training webinars for customers with AnyMeeting while cutting meeting and travel costs.

As ChartMeds began reviewing online meeting options, they quickly found AnyMeeting was the right solution based on “quality capabilities, simplicity and price.” Brad Barrows, director of Sales at ChartMeds said, “AnyMeeting was not only the simplest solution for our users and customers to navigate — and we had tried other solutions like GoToMeeting — but the ease of use and the value we receive with every use of AnyMeeting is appreciated every day.

ChartMeds is now realizing a lift in sales close rates from an average of 7% prior to the use of AnyMeeting to nearly a 50% sales close rate today.

With AnyMeeting I can help them learn how to ‘make the human connection’ in order to be more effective in lead generation and sales. The simplicity of AnyMeeting is like a goldmine for me! Many of my clients and calling agents are so impressed with their AnyMeeting experience that they adopt it for their own needs.

Real-Estate Expertise Delivered to Agents and Clients Across the U.S. via AnyMeeting

ArCHI Acquisitions is a start-up in the real estate industry that provides both webinar training for internal team members and education to the company’s clients.

Prior to AnyMeeting everything was communicated by phone and email—which slowed things down. But with AnyMeeting, it seems, the faster I can communicate both verbally and visually the higher retention rate I have for clients and team members, especially for training purposes.”

Our Account Manager dashboard gets a facelift — and more!

We’re pleased to announce that we’re rolling out a UI improvement that will make navigating our account management dashboard much easier.  We’ve simplified our tabs, meeting information layout, and cleaned up the clutter in the interface.  Here’s what you’ll see:

anymeeting web conferencing UI

This UI is also friendlier for iPhones, which will now be able to start meetings and participate in meetings (if you have our iPhone app), as well as dial directly into your conference call with just one click.

We’re also rolling out a few other improvements today:

  • Meeting hosts now receive an email that they’ve scheduled a meeting, with a link to start the meeting directly from the email
  • If the host somehow gets confused and ends up at the meeting login page, and the meeting isn’t started, they can start the meeting directly from there

We really hope you like these improvements, and if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact us at http://support.anymeeting.com.
