Research In Motion (RIM), makers of Blackberry smartphones, has launched a new conferencing application, BlackBerry Mobile Conferencing. Available on BlackBerry platform, the app easily facilitates organising conferences among a small group of people.
The application is aimed at small businesses having BlackBerry who could use it to schedule conference calls between participants with invites. The app could then automatically dial in participants, and re-connects dropped calls back to the conference through a notifications interface.
The application integrates with native BlackBerry apps, including the Calendar app, and could also sync with other services like both Google Apps and Microsoft Office, with little help from your company’s IT team.
The software, available in the BlackBerry Beta Zone, will be offered for free. It integrates with the calendar of consumer phones, and provides ‘one click join’ to allow one to dial into the conference call without needing the users to remember lengthy phone numbers, extensions and calling codes.
Although the application works well for its intended purpose, other third party applications offer the same and more features with support for different mobile platforms like iOS and Android.
RIM recently created various apps internally in a bid to increase available apps for its platform and made them available free of charge in BlackBerry App World as developers are adopting fast growing Android and iOS instead of Balckberry.
