HearMe (News - Alert), a leading provider of Web-based video conferencing and online collaboration solutions, today announced a 900 percent increase in revenue over the past 12 months on its one year anniversary in the desktop video conferencing space. The company has also earned the prestigious distinction of “2007 Product of the Year” from Internet Telephony Magazine (News - Alert).
HearMe’s web-based video conferencing system is designed to empower small businesses, distance educators and mobile work forces to conduct meetings in real time at an affordable price, according to the company. The solution provides video/audio conferencing, desktop and application sharing, and online browser- based meeting rooms.
HearMe also has the most user-friendly interface and advanced video conferencing capabilities in the market. It allows an unlimited number of users to actively participate in a meeting, said Hannah Rothman, senior marketing director of HearMe.
“HearMe has experienced tremendous growth in the past twelve months, with more than 10,000 new accounts having been added,” Rothman. “Fueling our growth has been a strategic focus on key vertical markets, such as distance education, IT consulting and the SMB market.”
“In 2008, we expect the level of interest in video conferencing and collaboration solutions to increase among SMB’s,” Ira Weinstein, senior analyst and Partner with Wainhouse Research, said. “The opportunity to save time, decrease costs, and reduce travel while improving communications is especially compelling for small to medium organizations seeking to compete with larger firms.”
“Over the next twelve months, we will look for new opportunities to integrate with other technologies that potential customers are already using in their day-to-day operations,” said Rothman. “We believe that HearMe enhances the way companies communicate, both internally and with their customers.”
