ReadyTalk Web Meeting Review
Using the browser-based web conferencing tool ReadyTalk is very intuitive. The meeting host can share his screen or single apps during a meeting and also show presentations imported prior to the meeting.
Meetings can be started ad hoc or scheduled in advance. The host can use either the online portal or Outlook to plan a meeting. The online portal gives meeting hosts numerous options when setting up meetings such as registration forms, reminder emails if no registration follows and emails with short questionnaires after a meeting. These options are interesting especially in the context of more formal webinars. Less formal meetings are quickly set up via the Outlook Scheduler.
After every meeting the host receives a reporting featuring all participant names as well as the chat communication during the meeting.
Additionally, ReadyTalk can be integrated with other software such as Eloqua Cloud (e-marketing) or salesforce.com (CRM). This functionality comes into play for web conferences in a sales environment, e.g. for lead generation via webcasts.
One weakness of the solution is that it doesn’t support video conferencing. As of today participants cannot share their webcams and have a video conference in addition to the online meeting.
Bottom line: ReadyTalks biggest plus is its great ease-of-use. Most essential functionalities of a good online meeting solution are covered. The biggest flaw is the missing of a video conferencing functionality, which prevented the tool from receiving a better ranking.
