Citrix GoToMeeting 5.5 Review
Citrix GoToMeeting is a lean web conferencing solution that allows for intuitive usage. The solution is integrated into Outlook and the other Microsoft Office products. This integration enables the meeting host to easily set up ad-hoc web meetings from a document and also to invite attendees in advance to a scheduled online meeting.
During a meeting the host can decide wether he wants to show the other participants his entire screen or rather only selected applications. Additionally, he can switch control of mouse and keyboard to any other participant.
GoToMeeting's major advantage is the mix of functionalities it offers, e.g. allowing for joint editing of documents, without cluttering the tool with too many seldom used features.
Now participants can have their webcams displayed and communicate via video during an online meeting. Citrix integrated this functionality very smoothly: every participant can arrange the webcams to his liking and have the current speaker highlighted. Up to 6 people can participate in a video conference.
Bottom line: Citrix GoToMeeting is a top solution for ad-hoc or scheduled web conferences with a focus on online collaboration.
