Lucid Meetings Integrates Glance Instant Screen Sharing Into Virtual Meeting Service
Glance emerging as screen-sharing technology of choice for OEMs
Arlington, Mass. – January 12, 2012 – Glance Networks (http://www.glance.net), which provides the best instant screen-sharing tool for sales and support professionals, announced today that Lucid Meetings has integrated Glance’s service as part of its offering. Lucid users can now integrate Glance sessions into their own meetings allowing participants access from any device, be it desktop or mobile.
Presenters can start a Glance session by clicking on a “Share” button within the Lucid Meetings interface. No software downloads are required for participants, who are instantly able to view the presenter’s screen.
“We sought a partnership where API development was core to the vendor’s strategy – so that we could integrate it tightly and in turn provide our clients with a screen-sharing solution that was quick, easy and just worked,” said Elise McIntosh, co-founder of Lucid Meetings. “Having tried to integrate other solutions, we knew what we did and didn’t want – and our research led us to Glance. We’re very excited to be the first virtual meeting service to provide this fantastic technology to our users; feedback on this new feature from our early customers has been extremely positive.”
Glance is emerging as the screen-sharing platform of choice for many OEM software and service vendors due to the flexible APIs, its simple yet secure architecture, excellent support for mobile devices, and the fact that no software is required for meeting participants. Other Glance integrations include Salesforce.com and LivePerson.
Tom Scontras, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Glance, said, “Lucid Meetings is making internal meetings infinitely easier and more efficient, and we think the addition of instant screen sharing will bring huge advantages to their customers. We’re proud to now be a part of their innovative service.”
The Lucid/Glance integration is available immediately to Lucid Meetings customers. To learn more, visit www.lucidmeetings.com.
