Bangalore, July 12 2014: Many small companies use videoconferencing solutions to save on travel costs, but they work well only at good connect speeds. All you require is a desktop/laptop/mobile with internet connection.
A Bangalore-based developer has launched 1Click, a browser-based face -to-face calling tool that is made for the low internet speeds we have to live with -- as low as 50 KBPS for voice and 300 KBPS for video.
It is a lean-n-mean solution that strips away all the complication from organising a conference call with 8 persons or more. Embedding the app in one's home page is as simple pasting a small chunk of code and users need to click just once on a link to join in -- on phone, tablet or PC.
SMEs generally depend on solutions like Webex, Google Hangout or Skype. With the possible exception of the last which is not exactly for corporate use, such solutions take time to set up and to enable users to join in. 1ckick addresses this complexity.
This will be the way recruiters will organise interviews in the future and patients consult with doctors from the comfort of their home. 1click is among a handful of highly rated global products in a category called WebRTC which enablesreal-time communications from the browser – no downloads, no plugins necessary. Free trials are available at 1click.io after which solutions for corporates start at $ 15.
For a few days we have a video on the product in our home page Tech Video spot.
