Citrix Online Named 2008 North American Web Conferencing Company of the Year


Frost & Sullivan, a global research and consulting firm, has named Citrix Online, a division of Citrix Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq:CTXS), the 2008 Web Conferencing Company of the Year. The annual award is presented to a company that has demonstrated unparalleled excellence within its industry. Citrix Online was singled out for its market-leading services and successful market penetration. The company delivers simple, affordable software-as-a-service solutions for remote PC access and online collaboration.

“Citrix Online has been successful in addressing the most demanding end-user needs – simplicity and pricing,” said Roopam Jain, principal analyst with Frost & Sullivan. “GoToMeeting and GoToWebinar represent easy-to-use, cost-effective online conferencing and collaboration services that are driving adoption by SMBs, which have traditionally found holding Web conferences out of their reach due to the high costs and complexity associated with them.”

Citrix® GoToMeeting® is a secure, cost-effective and fast way for people to meet, conduct trainings, demonstrate products, and collaborate online. Citrix® GoToWebinar™ is a do-it-yourself webinar service so simple to use that anyone can conduct online events from a PC, with up to 1,000 attendees.

“Most of our customers are small and medium-sized companies that, in the past, could never have afforded the advantages of web conferencing,” said Brett Caine, general manager, Citrix Online. “Our simple applications, designed for SMBs and delivered as software as a service, have changed that. GoToMeeting and GoToWebinar empower our customers to do more and travel less – reducing costs and gaining more time to focus on building their business. This is a huge competitive advantage, and it’s exciting to hear so many success stories from the entrepreneurs, professionals and mid-size companies that make up our customer community. Their success is a motivation for us to continue to deliver new collaboration services, and help our customers grow in ways never before possible.”

The Frost & Sullivan award recognized Citrix Online’s competitive strategy, customer satisfaction, and leadership, as well as outstanding management and consistent growth within a particular Frost & Sullivan Industry Research Group (IRG). To qualify for the award, a company’s customer service offerings and performance must be of very high caliber. In addition, the company must demonstrate proven expertise in taking advantage of market changes by capturing and solidifying market presence, or through execution of innovative strategies within the existing competitive landscape.
