ProFeatures by Class Technologies Makes Zoom a Hub for Collaborative Work


This is something we are all aware of: Businesses, no matter the size, embraced a diverse array of virtual meeting software solutions. What some might not be aware of is that ensuring seamless collaboration and productivity often requires users to navigate a complex ecosystem of applications beyond the core meeting platform.

While video conferencing platforms like Zoom or Microsoft Teams offer core functionalities like screen sharing and video calls, fostering true collaboration often necessitates additional tools. Brainstorming sessions might require a digital whiteboard application like Miro or Mural, while project management tasks might necessitate integrating tools like Asana or Trello. This creates a scenario where users must switch between multiple apps during a single virtual meeting.

Therefore, businesses that seek to optimize virtual collaboration must carefully consider the integration capabilities of their chosen meeting platform. Can it seamlessly connect with the suite of productivity tools their teams already rely on? Does it offer features like real-time document editing or collaborative whiteboarding within the platform itself?

Businesses can explore "all-in-one" platforms that bundle core meeting functionalities with essential collaboration tools. Alternatively, integrating existing meeting software with a suite of well-chosen, compatible applications can streamline workflows.

Class Technologies made integrating software a bit easier with the release of ProFeatures for Zoom.

Class Technologies develops virtual learning and meeting technology for education, corporate training and workplace productivity. Built on the Zoom platform, ProFeatures aims to enhance collaboration and improve meeting efficiency by leveraging AI.

ProFeatures allows users to share their screens and documents simultaneously within the Zoom interface. This eliminates the need to switch between applications and promotes a more seamless flow during meetings.

Users can directly share and edit Microsoft Office files, Google Docs, websites, videos, and other content within the Zoom meeting itself to create real-time collaboration without requiring participants to leave the platform.

Seating charts facilitate participant identification and streamline meeting management. Presenters and speakers can be easily moved to the forefront of the virtual room for better visibility.

ProFeatures also utilizes an AI Meeting Assistant to transcribe meetings, generate summaries and answer questions based on all materials shared during the session, including documents. This improves information retention and overall meeting effectiveness.

"Hybrid and remote workers spend all day in live online meetings," said Michael Chasen, co-founder and CEO of Class. "ProFeatures is the newest generation of features and functionality for virtual meetings, improving collaboration and productivity in Zoom and transforming the way we get things done."

ProFeatures follows a diverse range of virtual learning and training products offered by Class Technologies, including Class for Zoom and Class for Microsoft Teams. Class for Zoom and Class for Teams are next generation virtual classroom technology built on Zoom and Microsoft Teams. Class's virtual classroom technology enables the active learning of over 10 million users from more than 1,500 institutions worldwide.

With ProFeatures for Zoom, Class is committed to the improvement of workforce productivity by enhancing and adding live collaboration to online virtual meetings.
