HIGHnet Launches Multimedia Conferencing Service

Scottish telecoms reseller HIGHnet has added multimedia conferencing to its already comprehensive portfolio. HIGHnet Meeting Centre allows users to meet colleagues, clients and customers from remote locations in their own multimedia virtual meeting room without ever leaving the office.

The platform fully integrates voice, web and desktop video conferencing into one intuitive interface where simplicity and high quality are paramount.

Technical Director, David Alldritt, explains why HIGHnet Meeting Centre is different to many other web conferencing services: “We all know the drivers of web conferencing – such as cutting costs and carbon emissions whilst improving productivity – but we wanted to provide a high quality and high functionality product that is easy for customers to use and easy for our partners to sell. HIGHnet Meeting Centre offers 24/7 support, automated provisioning, PAYG or per seat pricing, and most importantly, even more revenue opportunities for our channel partners.

The product includes a wide range of powerful meeting controls as standard, including application sharing, desktop sharing, presentations, surveys, quizzes and polls, and a customisable user interface. The PAYG pricing is also particularly favourable with customers who require a top quality conferencing service but can’t commit to consistent usage every month, and we expect that to apply to most of our customers.”
