FreeConference has announced the availability of a new enhanced version of SharePlus, a desktop sharing application that has been in free beta for over a year.
The company developed SharePlus to provide users with core features such as sharing documents, spreadsheets, PowerPoint presentations and Web pages, according to FreeConference officials. The newly designed user interface and faster speeds make the product easier to use.
With the addition of the new features, users can upload multiple files to easily switch between documents, pass presenter controls on-the-fly. In addition, users can also provide status alerts to the presenter.
“Our goal is to provide our customers with options to fit their conferencing needs,” said Ken Ford, CEO at Global Conference Partners, the parent company of FreeConference. He said that the new enhanced conferencing tool, SharePlus, is “better than ever.”
Company officials said that SharePlus desktop sharing is one product available through FreeConference Select, a line of “al-a-carte” conferencing products that consumers can buy individually as needed.
With SharePlus, users can share their desktop, and also navigate to Web pages or present documents all in real-time. In addition, officials said, this newest version allows users to upload multiple PowerPoint or PDF presentations and switch between them.
Plus, SharePlus also features participant status alerts such as “Be Right Back,” “Agree,” “Problem” and more.
