Enterprise Solution: RHUB TurboMeeting

We have made it our rule to not evaluate enterprise online meeting tools but we would nevertheless like to make you aware of RHUB, which we find to be an interesting web conferencing solution.

TurboMeeting exists in various versions. In the smallest version two web conferences can take place in parallel with a total of 10 participants. On the upside, TurboMeeting supports a broad range of platforms, e.g. Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, Solaris/Unix, iPhone. On the downside, neither VoIP nor a telephone conferencing service is integrated.

As an enterprise solution RHUB is definitely interesting. Yet, with our focus on SMBs we will not evalutate the tool in detail.

AT&T evaluation requested

We have been receiving requests to evaluate AT&T’s web conferencing solution. Our comparison of web conferencing tools focuses on solutions for smaller and medium-sized companies and the self-employed, and AT&T doesn’t fit this profile with it’s enterprise solution (q.v. entry below „Manipeer's software vzRoom will not be rated” for further preconditions to evaluation).

WebEx MeetMeNow versus WebEx Meeting Center

We received a comment from Robert and we thought we should share our perspective on the topic with you.

Feedback from Robert:

[...]Kind of ridiculous when comparing these web collaboration solutions to leave out the dominant market share leader - WebEx Meeting Center Pro. The MeetMeNow product is just the company's cheap answer to lowest cost solutions for home office use. Yes the cost is higher for the market-leading WebEx product, but the solution is in another league in most respects too.[...]

Our perspective:
The website focuses on web conferencing solutions targeted to freelancers and small companies. Therefore, we decided to select software solutions that fit best the requirements for these target groups. If we review software solutions in the league of WebEx Meeting Center Pro we should assess Adobe Connect Pro (but not Adobe Connect), Citrix GoToMeeting Corporate (but not Citrix GoToMeeting), Elluminate Live! (but not Elluminate vRoom), iLinc or Interwise in order to be consistent.
