London, Monument, United Kingdom, 2008/10/16 - According to a recent study by Frost & Sullivan, Netviewer AG has increased its share of the market for Web conferencing services by 50 percent.
Netviewer AG has increased its share of the market for Web conferencing services by 50 percent. The company has thereby strongly reinforced its position as the leading provider of Web conferencing.
The company has thereby strongly reinforced its position as the leading provider of Web conferencing. The increase is attributed especially to the tremendous rise in demand for online meetings. Business customers can now rent Web conferencing capabilities for as little as £23.90 per month.
Higher prices for fuel and airfare, combined with the need to react quickly in global markets, are the main reasons for the increasing demand. As the market has grown, there has been an increased desire for a user-based licensing model. Netviewer has reacted and changed its previous session-based licensing model to a “named user model” that gives every user personal access to Internet meetings at any time.
“The new licensing model will make our services more economical and more convenient for our customers. It’s an exciting time, because this is what we expect to happen when products or services reach the mass market”, according to Dr. Andreas Schweinbenz, founder and Chairman of Netviewer.
Netviewer attributes its success to the very straightforward operating procedures of its products. While other systems involve installation of software and require a great deal of effort to start sessions, Netviewer works in an ad hoc manner: with no installation and just one click of the mouse. “Products for the masses must be very easy to use. Our new licensing model makes accessing our solutions easier than ever before”, according to Robert Gratzl, CFO of Netviewer.
Netviewer considers its extensive line of products, covering all areas of a corporation, another reason for its impressive growth in market share. The software-as-a-service option makes it very easy for any company to get started with web conferencing. Starting at just £23.90 per month and without any additional investment in hardware, the Personal Edition lets any internet user hold as many online meetings as desired. This version is available through Netviewer’s new online shop at shop.netviewer.com.
The Business Edition includes additional functions and extensive support to give companies everything they need to communicate efficiently over the internet. Volume discounts starting at ten users in one company make it even more economical than the Personal Edition.
Companies that wish to integrate Netviewer into their business processes will be best served by the Enterprise Edition. This version can be easily integrated into existing system landscapes. Defined interfaces provide connection to any telephone, ERP, CRM, or help desk system. Netviewer‘s VoIP solution can also be included to perfectly merge telephone and web conferences.
