Mobile Online Meetings Keep Getting Better with New Ways to Launch and Present Content from the iPad with Citrix GoToMeeting
Enhanced Apps for iPad and iPhone Provide Instant Collaboration and Comprehensive Presentation Capabilities to Citrix GoToMeeting Customers Any Time, Anywhere
BARCELONA, Spain — Today at Citrix Synergy™, the conference where mobile workstyles and cloud services meet, Citrix announced the availability of launching and presenting capabilities within Citrix® GoToMeeting for iPad and iPhone, available for immediate download on the App Store. Designed to extend the ease and convenience of GoToMeeting for Apple devices, mobile workers can now launch instant or pre-scheduled meetings from their iPhone or iPad. In addition, the new GoToMeeting for iPad is the first of its kind to offer the ability to present content from multiple cloud storage systems — including Citrix ShareFile and Dropbox — through native integrations and the built-in web browser. The enhanced capabilities combined with the award-winning HDFaces video conferencing feature empower business users with an elegant and simple way to use the iPad as a powerful real-time productivity tool anywhere at any time.
Driving Mobile Collaboration Across Multiple Devices
As businesses transform to support the growing needs of the workforce to collaborate with anyone, from anywhere, on any device, the apps they use must support a diverse range of devices. In a matter of seconds, users can now launch an online meeting on their iPhone or iPad and invite attendees for instant real-time team interaction with anyone inside or outside their company.
The GoToMeeting for iPad includes additional capabilities tailored for the tablet experience. Users can enjoy full flexibility when presenting from their iPad by accessing content through integrations with their browser, email attachments and ShareFile and Dropbox. For brainstorms, meeting organizers can capture all of the ideas mentioned with a native whiteboard.
Using GoToMeeting for iPhone or iPad, you can:
GoToMeeting provides simple web conferencing and online meetings enabling teams to collaborate effectively, regardless of location. For example, Educational Services of America (ESA) — the nation’s leading provider of K-12 alternative and special education schools and programs for students at risk of dropping out and those with special needs — uses GoToMeeting alongside the other Citrix collaboration tools to deliver targeted learning resources to more than 12,000 students any time on any device. GoToMeeting allows teachers to interact with students face to face from any location and deliver a program specifically tailored to the needs of the individual.
Another Citrix customer, Dr. Andrew Barbash, M.D., uses GoToMeeting as part of a broader virtual healthcare initiative designed to advance the treatment of individuals. GoToMeeting’s simple online meeting and video conferencing technology is used for online meetings and collaboration with patients, families and colleagues, providing an easy and practical way of interacting in any setting on any device.
GoToMeeting is a hugely powerful tool for sharing a wealth of expertise on the move. Sharks Sports and Entertainment, owners of various sports properties across the United States, uses GoToMeeting to enable a flexible mobile workstyle for its scouts and staff who need to maintain constant contact with executives and colleagues while on the road sharing information and discussing strategy.
Today’s mobile announcements are set to increase the flexibility of individuals in collaborating anywhere, at any time on any device.
“GoToMeeting for iPad and iPhone gives everyone real-time, on-the-go collaboration without sacrificing the functionality of a traditional desktop,” said Bernardo de Albergaria, VP and GM, Collaboration, Citrix Online Services Division. “By moving day-to-day meetings and presentations to smartphones and tablets, workers can truly collaborate from anywhere in an elegantly simple way.”
"As the BYOD movement continues to build momentum, employees are increasingly taking advantage of their new-found freedom to attend meetings from anywhere at any time using their device of choice," said Andy Nilssen, Sr. Analyst and Partner at Wainhouse Research. "By adding the capability to host sessions and present cloud-based content, this freedom has been expanded to include spontaneously initiating sessions from a mobile device as well – which significantly increases the ability to collaborate and drive competitive advantage."
