NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Oct 3, 2012) - Watchitoo today unveiled Playground, a breakthrough Web-based videochat platform that lets businesspeople hold meetings, presentations and sales calls "face to face" without ever leaving the office.
Playground has several clear advantages over competing offerings: up to 25 participants can convene online; no one has to download anything; application- and document-sharing are built right in; and it's branded as a business tool, so your customers know you're serious.
"We think Playground is a better way for businesses to collaborate," said Rony Zarom, CEO of Watchitoo. "Whatever your size, a serious business needs a serious business tool. You can access Playground directly, find it in your ISP's value-added service menu or experience it in customer service applications."
The cloud-based solution combines HD video conferencing with collaboration around nearly any form of rich media, including presentations, documents, videos, images, etc. The cost-effective, easy-to-use platform is ideal for sales presentations, consultations, training, recruiting or online meetings.
Playground is available three ways:
- At our website - Any consumer or businessperson can be up and running with Playground in minutes at www.plground.com/.
- Through ISPs - Providers will offer Playground as a value-added service bundled with voice, video and Internet service.
- In customer support applications - System integrators and value-added resellers will bundle Playground into customer relationship management software so consumers can chat live on Playground with customer service agents.
Although Playground is targeted to small and medium businesses, many others can find tremendous value in the videochat service. Health care providers can use it to consult with patients and colleagues. Financial services advisors can provide personal counsel to clients. Educators can give students, wherever they are, an easy way to study in groups.
The cost for Playground starts at $3.80 per user per month. A free version with limited features will be available at our website, as well.
Playground is a lightweight version of Watchitoo's full-featured, Web-based streaming, conferencing and collaboration platform for brands, TV producers, event organizers and others who want to increase engagement with their audiences and extend their reach. Up to 25 individuals or groups can participate live simultaneously via Watchitoo while hundreds of thousands can view and follow the conversation, using social tools to interact with their friends and fellow viewers.
