gotomeeting_logoOverview:
GoToMeeting is an application that allows users to connect for online meetings, desktop sharing, and video conferencing in real time over the internet. The service was developed by Citrix in 2004 and is now used by a large number of businesses and non-profit organizations that need to collaborate with people in different locations.

Price:
After an initial free trial, GoToMeeting pricing is based on the maximum attendees to be connected via the software. Pricing starts at $50 per month for less than 25 attendees and can go up to $500 per month for the highest level of features.

Advantages:
Software like GoToMeeting is almost essential for any organization that is trying to manage remote employees. There are also many features that set GoToMeeting apart from its competitors, including support for mobile devices and landlines. Other key features include meeting recording, toll-free numbers for VOIP conferencing, end-to-end encryption.

Disadvantages:
GoToMeeting can be pricey when compared to some of its competitors. The software also requires a lot of bandwidth and computing resources, which means it could slow down other programs that may be running in the background.
