BERKELEY, Calif. – November 5, 2007 – Vyew, a leading provider of browser-based visual collaboration and web conferencing software, and FreeConference, the pioneer of free audio conference call services, today announced that they have entered into a strategic partnership to create new conferencing services using each other’s proprietary conferencing platform and technologies.
Under the agreement, both companies are embedding the partner’s service into their respective solutions. Vyew subscribers who want conference calling while collaborating online can click on a “Free Conference Calls” button within Vyew for instant access toFreeConference.com’s reservationless conference call service. This combination provides the first free web conferencing service with free integrated audio.
FreeConference is offering its users a new service called “SharePlus” desktop sharing based on Vyew technology. Now in beta, it allows the sharing of documents and applications in real time during a teleconference with just one simple click.
“We are very excited that FreeConference selected Vyew and validated its commitment to providing leading technology,” said Henry Hon, CEO of Vyew. “This partnership is an important milestone for Vyew because it provides an excellent example of how Vyew can power partner solutions and bring our technology to new users in other communities.”
“This new partnership allows us to provide the next level of conferencing to our users starting with basic desktop sharing and then full web conferencing using advanced features of the Vyew platform,” said Alex B. Cory, CEO of FreeConference. “We selected Vyew because it let us create our own custom version of its product tailored to our own users’ needs. It is entirely browser based with no client installations and it is easy to use. We have received enthusiastic feedback about SharePlus from our customers.”
