New Solution: Remote Presentation for Skype keeps businesses connected

According to CEO Tony Bates, Skype has topped 250 million monthly users worldwide, becoming the global standard for video web conferencing. The possibilities for businesses are obvious and expansive - but how to keep all those minds and divergent thinking styles on the same page? CS Odessa is rising to that challenge with their new Remote Presentation for Skype solution for ConceptDraw MINDMAP®.

Presentations are an established way of sharing ideas across a workforce, there's no better software to create them than ConceptDraw MINDMAP. Using the Remote Presentation for Skype solution, you can include a workforce that is spread across the globe. What's more, MINDMAP's ability to present an array of document types means you can work with Microsoft® Word®, Microsoft PowerPoint®, and Microsoft Project® files, or any number of mind map formats. The possibilities are limited only by the user’s imagination.

For example, you might want to use a Microsoft PowerPoint presentation to update your remote team on the current status of a project. The PowerPoint slides contain notes for extra detail, and you need to pass on supporting documents to get everyone up to speed. To do this is simple - import the PowerPoint presentation to MINDMAP, embed the supporting documentation, and fire up a Skype conference call with the team. Once it begins, all participants receive the briefing file. Details about each slide can be read by hovering over the 'Notes' icon, giving out vital information without upsetting the flow of the presentation. At the end of a session, each user is left with a copy of the presentation materials, notes, and supporting documentation. All participants are up to speed in an instant – all through low-cost, effective collaboration using Skype and ConceptDraw MINDMAP v7.

ConceptDraw MINDMAP retails for $199, and supports Macintosh OS X and Microsoft Windows. The ConceptDraw Remote Presentation for Skype solution is a free add-on that is available for download from the ConceptDraw Solution Park, located at
