Web-4M is Collaboration Without BoundariesTM
goal for Web-4M was simple: to create the best
collaboration tool on the planet (full-featured), and make it useable
anyone (browser accessible), on any computer (cross-platform), on any
network (firewall tunneling) at an affordable price. We believe we have
Web-4M isn’t the only collaboration software out
there. We also know that most of our competitors lack important
features. Some don’t do audio (or do it badly) or video, some won’t let
you host on your own server, some only work on Windows servers and
clients, and some simply cost a fortune. Here are some key reasons we
believe you should consider Web-4M.
Web-4M is Full Featured
does everything you want collaboration software to
do. Audio, video, application sharing, conferencing, recording,
editing, chat, whiteboarding, email, news, calendaring...etc. All over
the web, all with one program. No extra programs, no separate phone
conference, no additional costs. Just one browser accessible program.
Web-4M Requires No Software Installation
client software is a Java applet, which is automatically
downloaded and run by your browser. This eliminates mass distribution
of software. Upgrades are handled automatically by the software. The
server, of course, does need to be installed on your webserver, unless
we host it for you.
Web-4M is Cross-Platform
Web-4M server is 100% Java, and will run on almost anything which
supports Java. We currently support Linux, Windows, and Solaris
servers, and some of our customers are using Mac OS X as the server. On
the client side, Web-4M runs with both IE and Netscape/Mozilla on the
Windows, Linux, Solaris, and Mac platforms. Even our audio is
cross-platform, allowing full-duplex phoning and audio conferencing
among all platforms.
Web-4M Runs on Your Server (or Ours)
you host Web-4M on your own server and network. While we will
host if asked, we find that most of our customers already have a good
Internet connection. Because Web-4M is easy to configure and manage, it
is reasonable for our customers to manage their own Web-4M installation
- fully supported by us of course!
Web-4M Drills through Firewalls
companion software product, Secure Access-4M, allows clients to
penetrate their firewalls, or your firewall, by routing communication
via port 443 SSL (HTTPS) requests. Secure Access-4M then routes these requests (and
responses) to and from the Web-4M server.
Web-4M Integrates with Any Portal
server-side API simplifies integration with any portal
architecture. This feature allows users who have been authenticated by
another mechanism (LDAP, JDBC for instance) to be automatically logged into Web-4M,
and optionally sent directly into one of the multimedia rooms for a
conference. The API also allows adding and deleting users, and creating
and removing rooms.
Web-4M can be Customized
there is a feature you absolutely must have, and Web-4M doesn’t have
it, let us know and we will give you a quote. Our prices are
reasonable, and we roll the new code right into Web-4M, so your
enhancements are maintained as part of the system.
Web-4M is Reasonably Priced
our pricing to the competition. We beat everybody who has a
halfway decent collaborative tool, and many which aren't halfway
decent! With systems starting at just $1300, and discounts for
educational and non-profit users, everyone can afford world-class
