Software Description:

WebEx is a web conferencing platform that combines file sharing with video and audio conferencing via a web browser. Users can in a very short time establish web conferencing sessions or performance product launches and educational sessions.

The software is compatible with all frequently used media file types, as well as with demonstration platforms such as PowerPoint. WebEx also enables meeting recording, scheduling, follow-up messaging, screen capturing, and file sharing. One of the features that stands out is the breakout room creation, which means that one large meeting can be divided into several private meetings.

WebEx Meeting Center's interface is modern-looking, compared to competitors' services. It has the ability to set up meetings directly from the home page and now also possible to have up to seven video feeds simultaneously.
