SANTA BARBARA, Calif. --(Business Wire)-- Jan. 5, 2005 -- 'Simpler is Better' Approach to Online Meetings Clicks with Corporate Sales and Training Markets

Distinguished by an unbeatable combination of one-click online meetings, reliable performance, and easier-than-e-mail simplicity, Citrix(R) GoToMeeting(TM) Corporate 1.1 introduces an even simpler, faster way to meet online with up to 200 attendees per meeting. Newly released from Citrix Online, a division of Citrix Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq:CTXS), Citrix GoToMeeting Corporate outperforms the competition by simplifying and automating set up. This includes support for recurring meetings, and industry-leading performance for quick meeting start and participation. These customer-driven enhancements are designed to cater directly to the practical needs of departments like sales and training.


"The unmatched simplicity and performance of our managed-service model remains a Citrix GoToMeeting hallmark," said Brian Donahoo, senior vice president, client services, for Citrix Online. "Our easy-to-use platform makes Citrix GoToMeeting Corporate exceptionally well positioned to command a significant share of the large sales and online training market opportunity."

Taking a modular approach, Citrix GoToMeeting Corporate allows companies to expand attendee capacity with the purchase of upgraded licenses to allow up to 200 total attendees per meeting.

"The ability to purchase additional attendee capacity makes life a lot easier for our customers and employees," said David Hoydic, president and CEO at Hoydic International. "This is especially beneficial given the sometimes unpredictable nature of a company's sales or training needs. We really appreciate the added flexibility of the upgrade to Citrix GoToMeeting Corporate, and particularly the fact that it's the easiest solution to deploy and use."

Whether the need is to close deals faster through more efficient qualification of prospects online, or to boost revenue through online training and by increasing customer satisfaction and retention, Citrix GoToMeeting Corporate offers the fastest and easiest way to stay connected through visual communication.

"Companies can effectively shorten their sales cycle by replacing the downtime and money spent on travel with the convenience of an online meeting service," said Robert P. Mahowald, collaborative computing manager at IDC. "Managed services like Citrix GoToMeeting can simplify and add the advantage of immediacy to secure and easy communications -- regardless of facility location -- especially for companies that are increasingly adopting employee and customer training programs."

The 128-bit end-to-end AES encryption provides complete confidentiality of on-screen content during every Citrix GoToMeeting Corporate session. This transparent, always-on security is built-in and cannot be disabled or compromised by users. Screen-sharing technology allows presenters to share PowerPoint slides, financial spreadsheets and any other PC application with all participants in real-time. Bundled integration with the most widely used communication applications such as e-mail and instant messaging has meeting participants quickly and effortlessly meeting online without complicated setup or additional training. Citrix GoToMeeting also provides true 24-bit color representation of the presenter's PC so all illustrations, graphic-intensive applications and pictures are shown to meeting attendees in their actual state.

Even the pricing is simple. Citrix Online takes a no-surprises approach to billing with its 'All You Can Meet' pricing model. Regardless of the number or length of Citrix GoToMeeting Corporate sessions, no overage charges or per-minute expenses common to other products will ever be incurred.
