MINNEAPOLIS, MARCH 11, 2008 – Yugma, the leading Web-collaboration service that lets people connect instantly over the Internet to share content and ideas using any application or software, today announced availability of new and enhanced capabilities. Yugma is radically easy to use, works seamlessly across Windows, Mac and Linux platforms, and is available in a free basic version.
The Skype-certified service revolutionizes real-time collaboration by enabling quick and instant sharing of ideas by letting users conduct virtual meetings or webinars and to share desktops spontaneously. The newest version of Yugma adds features that make the service even easier and more fluid to use than before. It includes the ability for users to schedule online meetings in advance; meet “on the fly;” chat; collaborate interactively on documents, applications or virtual whiteboard; share files; change presenters, and record sessions for subsequent playback or webcast. Further, the new version has an “always on” feature that allows users to run Yugma in the background so that a spontaneous collaboration session with business associates, clients, and partner organizations is only a click away.
Yugma redesigned its website to coincide with release of the new version. “Users of our earlier versions say they like Yugma better than the other well-known names in collaboration, like WebEx,” said Yugma Chief Operating Officer Karel Lukas. “Our new version is a highly effective applications platform that really is the next generation of Web collaboration. Yugma provides the visual component to online conferencing and is much more than ‘I talk and you listen;’ its strength truly is in spontaneous collaboration.”
