Nefsis Basic Serves Free Web Conferencing

by Andrew Garcia
Nefsis Basic provides a free, minimal Web collaboration service for two users. The cloud-based collaboration software allows a registered user to invite one other person to meet and collaborate in an always-on Web meeting room using voice over IP audio and low-resolution video, while simultaneously sharing their desktops or documents. Available for free with registration, Nefsis Basic also comes with 14 days of free access to the more robust Nefsis Pro. Pro allows users to set up and schedule multiple meetings and invite as many people as are licensed, providing access to HD-quality video and additional collaboration tools, including individual applications or screen region sharing, document distribution, media file sharing, and collaborative whiteboarding. Users can also use Nefsis Pro for remote troubleshooting, as the host can take over participants' PCs. Nefsis works on Windows PCs running Internet Explorer, Chrome or Firefox.
