Small Businesses Recommend AnyMeeting for Ease of Use and Simple Pricing Model

AnyMeeting Customers Reduce Travel and Training Costs; Increase Sales Close Rates From 7% to 50% Using AnyMeeting All-in-One Web, Video and Phone Conferencing Platform

HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/20/14 -- Doubling its size in 15 months, AnyMeeting (http://anymeeting.com) now delivers its web, video conferencing , phone conferencing and webinar tool to more than 500,000 small business users. In a recent customer survey, AnyMeeting customers cite peer recommendations and a great customer experience (CX), including ease of use and AnyMeeting pricing as the key criteria for adoption.

Healthcare, Financial, Professional Services and Technology Companies Adopt AnyMeeting

AnyMeeting customers include companies from a wide range of industries, including healthcare, financial services, real estate, and technology services. These companies are adopting AnyMeeting to cut travel and meeting costs and simplify processes associated with training and collaborating with team members (cited as the dominant use cases by 34% and 29% of customers, respectively).

Of the respondents who previously used another online meeting solution, 50% are switching from either GoToMeeting or WebEx. Top factors cited: simplicity and price.

One such customer is ChartMeds, a rapidly growing company that delivers an advanced Web-based healthcare solution for automating medication administration records (advanced eMAR) or Med Passes for residents of state and federally regulated long-term care, nursing, assisted living, troubled-youth and correctional facilities. Because ChartMed's business is broadening across a diverse range of residential healthcare facilities, thanks in part to mandates related to the U.S Affordable Care Act (ACA), ChartMeds delivers sales demos, system training and other key customer support services that meet specific scheduling and regulatory requirements for its customers in the U.S. and abroad. The principals at ChartMeds realized that the company could enhance its sales processes with online demos and deliver superior, customized training webinars for customers with AnyMeeting while cutting meeting and travel costs. As ChartMeds began reviewing online meeting options, they quickly found AnyMeeting was the right solution based on "quality capabilities, simplicity and price." Brad Barrows, director of Sales at ChartMeds said, "AnyMeeting was not only the simplest solution for our users and customers to navigate -- and we had tried other solutions like GoToMeeting -- but the ease of use and the value we receive with every use of AnyMeeting is appreciated every day. ChartMeds is now realizing a lift in sales close rates from an average of 7% prior to the use of AnyMeeting to nearly a 50% sales close rate today.

"AnyMeeting Simplicity is Like a Goldmine"

Many customers experience AnyMeeting as an attendee and decide to adopt the solution as a result of the simple user experience.

AnyMeeting customer Sylvia Henderson, CEO of Virtual Workforce Network Agency, provides training to optimize sales and lead-generation calling techniques for her calling agents and clients using AnyMeeting. She said, "AnyMeeting allows me to run high quality webinars that require virtually no training. Whether you are just beginning or you are a small business, you want to keep your solutions simple, effective and efficient. AnyMeeting offers the simplicity I need to run my businesses -- coaching and training my virtual lead generation calling agents and consulting with my clients. With AnyMeeting I can help them learn how to 'make the human connection' in order to be more effective in lead generation and sales. The simplicity of AnyMeeting is like a goldmine for me! Many of my clients and calling agents are so impressed with their AnyMeeting experience that they adopt it for their own needs. Client referral is powerful and that's why companies come to me ... I make it simpler for them to become world-class sales people and generate more leads ... AnyMeeting makes it simple for me to do what I do best."

As a browser-based solution, no pre-installation, training, or configuration by administrators or IT staff is necessary. The service is conveniently integrated with audio on the phone, so participants can join by either phone or computer. Attendees on the go can also join the online meeting using their iPhone, iPad or Android tablet (Android phones coming soon).

Real-Estate Expertise Delivered to Agents and Clients Across the U.S. via AnyMeeting

ArCHI Acquisitions is a start-up in the real estate industry that provides both webinar training for internal team members and education to the company's clients. Currently staffed by three agents, ArCHI plans to add 10 to 20 new agents to their team this year, and will communicate to their national agents and clients via AnyMeeting "as if they were sitting face-to-face." Taryn McKennie of ArCHI Acquisitions stated, "Conducting presentations or conference calls with AnyMeeting is awesome, especially for a startup or new business. Prior to AnyMeeting everything was communicated by phone and email -- which slowed things down. But with AnyMeeting, it seems, the faster I can communicate both verbally and visually the higher retention rate I have for clients and team members, especially for training purposes."

"We continue to focus on making it simple for small businesses to cut costs and enhance efficiency through online meetings," said Costin Tuculescu, founder and CEO of AnyMeeting. "AnyMeeting is an all-in-one web, video and phone conferencing tool that serves as an everyday utility for a growing number of small businesses. AnyMeeting small business customers, and partners catering to small business, know they can count on us to provide the right solution for their unique needs today and in the future."

In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Atwell, a Developer Advocate for NetApp, will discuss the role and value...
