  • Boston-based software company Deep collaboration experience Founders realized that Instant Messaging was good for 1-1 communication; but not rich, multi-way collaboration Web Conferencing was good at rich collaboration, but needed to be scheduled and was an expensive, rationed resource They set out to deliver a better system for meeting and collaborating in real-time; one that combines the spontaneity of IM with the richness of web conferencing The result was Convoq ASAP
  • ASAP delivers the power of Web conferencing to every desktop Access your contacts and the people with whom you want to meet instantly by instant message or email Invitees participate without time consuming downloads or setup Once gathered, you can conduct rich-media meetings (just as we are doing here)
