September 26, 2012 – Visit Face-to-Face With Clients is a tool that professionals can use to hold face-to-face meetings with clients, colleagues, customers, coworkers, and teammates without ever stepping foot in a conference room or office. The web-based video application works without any downloads, signups, or software purchases.

The idea behind creating was to make hosting virtual meetings as seamless as possible. To host a meeting, click “Get a Meeting Room,” and distribute the URL that generates to anyone you’d like to participate in the meeting. Give your room a more professional feel by giving it a name — like Acme Paper Company or Tuesday Conference Meeting. To encourage even more people to show up at your meetings, you can embed a series of customizable buttons on your business website, intranet portal, or personal blog. You can also embed your room into your website by using the embed code that provides. Each time a new person drops in on your meeting, the screen that each participant is viewing will resize and add a new webcam box automatically, without any work on your part.

Up to five people at a time can drop by your room to hangout, chat, and share business ideas. also provides a screen-sharing tool for professional users. When you launch the screen-sharing tool, everyone in the room can see your computer screen in real time. This feature is especially helpful when giving demos and showing new files to clients online.
