Most companies fall into one of two camps: those that use, understand, and embrace the Google way, and those that don’t. If your team uses Gmail and Google Calendar, it’s likely you also use Google Hangouts for your team meetings.

Hangouts has been one of our top-requested integrations, and now it’s here. Starting today, all Lucid Meetings account owners can select to add a Hangout to their Lucid meetings.

Making Meetings Accessible

Apr 3, 2013 by Chris Higgins in meeting technology (2 minute read)

We strive to make software that "just works."

That's a core value we feel makes Lucid Meetings different from competitors -- we cut out the hassles you face with plugins, we make sure our software works beautifully on mobile devices (in case you want to join a meeting on your smartphone or tablet), and we strive to reduce clutter wherever we can.

Your iPad Meeting Application is Here

Jun 20, 2012 by John Keith in meeting technology, release announcement (5 minute read)

"iPad Sales May Reach 66 Million In 2012"

With a headline like that, it's no surprise that we've focused some attention — quite a bit of attention actually — toward making Lucid Meetings work very well on the iPad.

This focus is especially warranted when considering that as many as 71% of iPad users are management level or higher in their organization. Managers need to meet, and the iPad is a natural fit for the task.

Here at Lucid Meetings, we're dedicated to making your online meeting life as easy as possible. Attending a Lucid Meeting is as easy as pointing your web browser in our direction. We do the rest.

And when that web browser happens to live on your iPad, we take special care to deliver an even better experience in the form of an Apple iOS Web Application. Such applications use Web 2.0 technologies to deliver a focused solution that looks and behaves like a built-in iOS application.

Part I: Software Costs

As you may have seen, we recently announced new pricing for Lucid Meetings. You may have wondered how we arrived at the prices we did. Then again, maybe you didn't. Either way, prepare to be informed.

We wanted to make sure we could save teams money on their software costs, and to do that, we needed to do some research. What do teams pay for their meeting software today? Our investigation revealed three main ways that people use and purchase software for collaborative meetings.
