Marcel Maron is the mastermind behind Mikogo’s machinery, he is the man responsible for what goes on behind the scenes. In this interview, Marcel outlines the complexity involved in making a product like Mikogo run so smoothly, and sheds light on the global presence of Mikogo’s IT infrastructure.
The Mikogo software is used for several different use cases – meetings, presentations, trainings, support, etc. – which is why we built the Profile Manager. This advanced feature allows you to remove or add features from the software and hence create different “profiles” for different use cases. Now you can create a “meeting profile” with your favorite meeting features and a “support profile” with the best remote support settings.
The best part – it’s so easy! There are no complicated configurations or tech skills required. It’s just a matter of ticking/unticking some checkboxes. Here is how you do it:
Two popular long-standing features of Mikogo are the HTML Viewer and the Website Session Login Integration. The first is an award-winning Mikogo feature which allows participants to join your online meetings directly from their Web browser, without any additional software or plugin downloads. The latter involves adding some HTML code to your website to embed the session login form from go.mikogo.com into your website. We thought it would be great to take both of these features, combine them, and provide a very sleek way for your participants to join your presentations from your website using the HTML Viewer.
We recently had the opportunity to speak with a prized customer of Mikogo, Swedish company, Volvohandelns Utvecklings (VHUTV). VHUTV develop the best dealer management systems and information services to the automotive industry. In speaking at length we were able to understand not only how the company uses Mikogo and why they were initially searching for a web conferencing solution, but we also heard about the importance of security and ensuring compatibility between Mikogo and their IT systems.
As humans we have five senses, two of which are already covered by Mikogo: sight and hearing. Today’s new Mikogo release of TelSmell adds a third to your online meetings with the addition of smell – a world first for online meetings. During a Mikogo meeting, TelSmell easily detects the scents and smells from your office and transmits them via your computer to your meeting participants. Whether it be fresh coffee, summer rain outside the office window or a colleague’s perfume, all odors are transmitted between you and your participants in real-time. Read More
