Arkadin is an audio and web conferencing service that can help you set up events. They have their own proprietary conferencing systems or, for larger numbers of attendees, use trusted partners to provide extra reliable communications. The software and service is very professional and provides a lot of useful administration tools for setting up and hosting your event.
Arkadin specialize in audio and web conferencing solutions. It is possible to use their ArkadinAnytime audio conferencing and ArkadinAnywhere web conferencing systems together to host a web based event with full audio and visual capabilities. ArkadinAnywhere provides all the usual functionality you would expect from a web conferencing application, such as desktop sharing, text chat facilities and a shared workspace for communal files.As well as these typical features it is possible to customize the application with your own branding and generate reports after the conference detailing who attended and what was said. ArkadinAnytime provides a reliable and flexible audio conferencing solution that your guests can dial into using either a paid for or a toll free number depending on your subscription. It would have been nice to see VOIP included in the system, but the separate teleconferencing facility makes the system extra robust. You can also host up to 100 participants per call.
As well as providing the systems for your web based conferences and events, Arkadin can also provide a full personal service in helping you organise and run the event. They offer various different solutions, such as online training seminars or product launches, which can be tailored to your exact requirements. A consultant will even set up invitations and send them out to your guests as well as ensuring everyone can access the event properly. This kind of service is great if you are not used to hosting large scale web events or don't have the time to set one up yourself.
It is easy for participants to join an event and no download is required on their part. If required, a meeting can be protected with a choice of authentication mechanisms and, once inside, all communications are encrypted using SSL technology.
Arkadin is a professional service suited to clients who want to host events which convey a professional image. As such, this is not the cheapest service around and if you have the time and ability to set up this kind of technology yourself, you can probably do it cheaper. However, if you want a high level of personal service and don't mind paying for it Arkadin is a good choice.
