At Mobile World Congress 2015, BlackBerry announced that the latest version of BBM Meetings would include a Microsoft Outlook Plug-in for Windows PC. This feature enables BBM Meetings’ users to directly schedule and start a BBM Meetings session as seamlessly from their Windows desktop as they already do from their mobile device.
For organizations looking to increase the productivity of their mobile workforce, BBM Meetings offers business users a new way to work smarter from any Android, iPhone, BlackBerry 10 smartphone or Windows PC or Mac. While WebEx and GoToMeeting have offered conferencing solutions for quite some time, what they lack is the mobile experience that meets the needs of the modern mobile professional, compromising the delivery of a complete conferencing solution. Today’s mobile professionals don’t have the time to fumble with passcodes, and sift through e-mails to find a dial in and PINs to start a meeting. BBM Meetings is the solution.

With the latest Microsoft Outlook Plug-in for Windows, BBM Meetings makes it easier than ever before to schedule and join meetings in a matter of seconds. Combined with additional new features that are also now available including: automatic scaling for shared screen viewing, enhanced in-meeting privacy controls for participants, and streamlined audio prompts when joining by phone dial-in, BBM Meetings offers an unmatched complete collaboration solution. And the best part? BBM Meetings provides all these productivity enhancing features and services at a fraction of the cost of other leading collaboration solutions.
BBM Meetings is calling, pick up and answer.
