Lawrence, CA (PressExposure) April 08, 2009 -- With the economy in a downturn, many businesses are turning to online to Web conferencing. While relatively less expensive than most trips, these services are still costly. San Jose, Calif.-based RHUB (Real-Time Collaboration HUB) Communications is perfectly positioned to take advantage of the situation with its line of Web conference appliances.
Slightly larger than a SOHO router, the TM-200 is nearly effortless to install. Connection consists of running a network cable between the LAN and the device and plugging in the power adapter. After installation, all we had to do was log on to the device from a Web browser on the network and finish the configuration.
Within minutes, we had a meeting up and running with attendees being able to see everything on the host's computer screen that they wanted seen. There are four types of meetings to choose from that range from one-way seminars to collaborative and interactive. Additionally, all RHUB appliances include audio conference call service at no extra cost. Although it is not a toll-free number, this is a nice feature that makes the appliance a complete, one-time purchase product.
RHUB estimates that the products pay for themselves in three to five months compared to subscription-based competitors, and after some quick Web shopping, we would tend to believe it. The extremely easy installation and almost flawless operation make it a no-brainer for any company needing the services it provides.
