Exhibiting at Channel Partners Conference

With just two weeks away, we are gearing up for the launch of at the Channel Partners Conference & Expo in Las Vegas on March 26-29, 2012. At the Conference, prospective agents will be offered a free demo account, including both toll audio conferencing and a 50-seat screen-sharing license. Agents will have access to the commission and rate tables and can provision an account on the fly. There are 80 potential pricing combinations. (To get paid, of course, partners need to sign a partner agreement.) Agents will earn 25-35 percent commissions depending on the rates they choose to charge their customers. All provisioning is done online and commissions are tracked by codes assigned to individual agents for each of their retail rate models.

StartMeeting's service has been in development for two years and integrates high-definition audio and Web conferencing. A primary selling point is the combination of an intuitive Web meeting service with high-quality audio, which aren't often found together, forcing buyers to source from separate vendors. In addition, users will have management capabilities via a "meeting wall," where they can schedule meetings, send calendar invites, upload supporting documents and access recorded meetings. Subscribers also can post content to their Facebook page or group from the meeting wall. For meeting attendees, the wall also serves as a "lobby", providing information about the host, their photo and company logo. Read More...'s Customizable Conference Preferences
