Citrix launches new free option to its conferencing portfolio

Citrix has launched a free version of its GoToMeeting conferencing service.

The virtualisation, networking and Cloud infrastructure company launched the original GoToMeeting service in 2004. Since then there have been numerous additions and extensions to the platform including GoToWebinar and GoToTraining. This is the first free service in the GoTo portfolio.

The service is a Chrome based tool that allows for video conferencing for up to three people. The platform is entirely browser based that allows users to connect without downloading additional software.

GoToMeeting product line director, Phil Chambers, described the service as another example of how the company is responding to its customer’s needs.

“Offering a free, lightweight version of GoToMeeting meets the needs of everyday consumers while also giving business users confidence in a secure platform backed by Citrix.”

GoToMeeting Free is available now through the Chrome Web Store.

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

​As the channel changes and industry voices deepen, the need for clarity and insight heightens. Market misconceptions talk of an “under pressure” distribution space, with competitors in that fateful “race for relevance” across New Zealand. Amidst the cliched assumptions however, distribution is once again showing its strength, as a force to be listened to, rather than questioned. Traditionally, the role was born out of a need for vendors and resellers to find one another, acting as a bridge between the testing lab and the marketplace. Yet despite new technologies and business approaches shaking the channel to its very core, distributors remain tied to the epicentre - providing the voice of reason amidst a seismic industry shift. In looking across both sides of the vendor and partner fences, the middle concept of the three-tier chain remains centrally placed to understand the metrics of two differing worlds, as the continual pulse checkers of the local channel. This exclusive Reseller News Roundtable, in association with Dicker Data and rhipe, examined the pivotal role of distribution in understanding the health of the channel, educating from the epicentre as the market transforms at a rapid rate.
