IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

As far as I know it fails on WinXP (but obviously it could be tried), but I read in Experts-exchange a few weeks ago that WinSockXPFix repaired the problem http://members.shaw.ca/techcd/WinsockXPFix.exe
