In recent years, screen sharing over the Internet has brought
enormous productivity advantages to all kinds of business, yet Mac
users have been widely underserved. Glance is bridging the gap by
extending its simple online screen sharing tool to the Mac community.
Glance’s new version brings Mac users the same lean, no nonsense
design that PC-based users already enjoy in more than 2,600 companies
worldwide. While Mac users have always been able to view Glance
sessions, now they can host sessions as well. Glance’s one-button
interface makes it the simplest screen sharing tool available.
“The Mac version of Glance works perfectly for Mac and PC attendees
— we haven’t had one issue. It’s easy to use and most importantly
for us, it’s a one-click start,” said Brian Niles, founder and CEO of
TargetX, which provides marketing communications services to 450
colleges and universities nationwide. “When it comes to simplicity,
the entire Glance experience is very Macish. We just don’t need all
of the bells and whistles from other companies that typically add an
extra 10 minutes to setting up a demo. With Glance, it’s
instantaneous and I don’t know of any other Mac products that work

two minutes. Users get to pick their own personal URLs. Session
guests do not need any software. They connect instantly with nearly

* Review creative. With Glance, Mac users can now share designs,

avoid costly revisions.

sales experience by demonstrating applications, web services,
designs, simulations or tools, right from the sales person’s computer

emailing bulky presentations and allows users to show PowerPoints,
Keynotes or other visuals in full color in real time.

show customers detailed product information from a web site or
internal catalog while they are on the phone, which is ideal for
companies with complex products or extensive catalog listings.
* Show financial portfolios, travel destinations, real estate
listings, insurance illustrations. Business can be closed more
quickly using Glance by enabling Mac users to show customers exactly
what they are talking about.

minimize costly fulfillment errors by allowing customers to watch as
their order information is completed, so they can correct mistakes
