I can probably live with option 1 as well, but less sure about the rest of eGov.

What is your view from the Group's perspective Rainer?

We have a number of US and Canada folks who probably used the toll free lines.  I'm thinking most EU based folks used Skype.

I would prefer option 1. Calls to landlines are usually cheap, and my experience from using webex is that most people can use VoIP in even in a restricted enterprise environment once they get beyond the hurdle to activate Java or install an app. I also found the productivity functions (slideshow, chat, online-status, remote mute) quite useful for calls with a larger number of participants.

Hello LC,

We received your feedback regarding the current teleconference provider TurboBridge and realize this service is not the favored solution as originally anticipated.

In researching other solutions, we find there are limited options with dedicated Skype options, let alone VoIP options.

As we look at some solutions, we would like to choose an option without toll free due to higher costs, yet you can dial in using your Skype minutes.  We are trying to determine if there would be any barriers for folks within your groups' participation providing the following options:

1. utilize WebEx with their integrated VoIP solution, without dedicated Skype access with toll option (could use your Skype, mobile or land line)

2. utilize WebEx with their integrated VoIP solution, without dedicated Skype access with toll free option (more cost to Kantara).



Please provide your feedback by COB Wednesday, 29 Feb.
