Just Add firstname.lastname@example.org 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 email@example.com 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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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 email@example.com, 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.
