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.
