Cisco WebEx Meeting Center 8.5 skyrockets to number two

After Cisco had announced to no longer offer new WebEx MeetMeNow subscriptions, we evaluated their online meeting solution WebEx Meeting Center, which is now available in version 8.5. This tool offers a broad variety of functions and can thus be applied in numerous cases. However, by offering more features the complexity of the tool has grown as well and makes usage less simple and intuitive.

WebEx MeetMeNow is only available for already subscribed users

Cisco have announced on their WebEx site that they will no longer be offering new WebEx MeetMeNow subscriptions. As an alternative, Cisco offer WebEx Meeting Center for web meetings, which we already tested in June 2008. Due to the new situation we will evaluate the services again and publish the updated results on our website.

As a customer with a regular account we were surprised to find out that Cisco has not provided current customers with information other than what can be found on the website.
