By no means is DimDim the only web conferencing app around. In fact, it’s one of many and a new kid on the block. What separates DimDim is unlike other web conferencing apps, users don’t need a conference call number to access the conference. If a visitor has a microphone, as most computers do, any user can correspond with other members of the web conference.
Through DimDim, users can share whiteboards, computer desktops, PowerPoint presentations, and other files. The whiteboard feature allows for multi-page, instant collaboration. What makes DimDim highly competitive with other conference apps is that it is free to use and there’s no additional software to download unless you are using the screen sharing feature. It is also open source, which means that companies can integrate DimDim into their existing infrastructure.
For small businesses, these elements are key, as they’ll cut down on travel and communication expenses, while still offering a full-featured web conferencing app. One of the marks against other conference apps is that they’re priced for corporate accounts, and DimDim is affordable for those on a tighter budget, without necessarily sacrificing functionality.
