Share on LinkedIn

It looks like Netbriefings has released a new or improved version of their web collaboration tool (http://www.netbriefings.com/solutions/econfpro.shtml). I haven’t yet seen it in action, but the collateral sounds good…!

Does anyone have experience using it for Remote Demos?

From their website:
