ATLANTA, July 10, 2012 (via PGI) – PGi (NYSE: PGI), a global leader in virtual meetings for over 20 years, today announced general availability of its flagship mobile meeting app, GlobalMeet HD for the iPad, to meet the rising demands of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and telecommuting workforces in today’s increasingly mobile business landscape.
With the new GlobalMeet mobile meeting app, users can join and host web meetings directly from their iPad and talk using PGi’s industry-leading Auto-Connect™ feature, which automatically connects the meeting audio and eliminates the hassle of dialing-in or dialing-out while on the go. The GlobalMeet app for the iPad is a full-featured experience where users can also:
- See and hear everyone in the GlobalMeet web meeting — no matter where guests are or what device they’re using.
- Easily manage web conference attendees, conference calling features and web meeting functionality with full meeting host controls on the iPad.
- Drag and drop files from their desktop into GlobalMeet’s enhanced cloud-based content library, which is accessible on any online device — desktop, laptop, iPhone® and now the iPad.
- Easily share all presentations stored in their cloud-based content library.
- With a single touch, record GlobalMeet web meetings and GlobalMeet conference calls.
“Our research shows that tablet users increasingly want to access their web conferences with a reliable, easy-to-use mobile meeting app,” said Andy Nilssen, Sr. Analyst & Partner of Wainhouse Research. “PGi’s GlobalMeet app for the iPad app could fill this need by facilitating richer, more collaborative tablet-based web meetings for remote workers and mobile business users worldwide.”
“With the launch of GlobalMeet 3.0, today’s modern workers have the freedom to join meetings the way they want to — on their tablets, smartphones, desktops, laptops or standard telephones,” said Boland T. Jones, PGi founder, chairman and CEO. “The new GlobalMeet app for the iPad is the fulfillment of a promise, enabling businesses to facilitate collaborative, productive web meetings and still meet the rising demands of today’s BYOD and mobile workers.”
The release of the GlobalMeet HD app for the iPad in the Apple App Store comes on the heels of general availability of PGi’s GlobalMeet 3.0 web conferencing, which included game-changing feature enhancements to the cloud-based content library, an advanced, global VoIP softphone, the GlobalMeet for Desktop meeting management tools and more.
