Travel less. Meet online. It’s easy and affordable — and a great way to work green.” So urges the Web site of WebEx, which offers online meeting applications. Founded in 1996, the company was acquired by Cisco in May 2007. And now, “WebEx products are being integrated into Cisco’s expanding portfolio of collaboration products and services based on Web 2.0 technologies.”
When one chooses WebEx, there’s no need to worry about ports, platforms, versions, firewalls — or even the Internet, says the company. “All you need to run effective online meetings is a browser and a phone.”
