Free, unlimited meetings

The term ‘Freemium’ simply comes from the words Free and Premium - it is an entirely free, full-featured meeting room, ready for your use.

Designed as an evaluation product, Freemium offers a free and simple way to join a meeting in just a few clicks and enjoy professional video meetings from anywhere, with up to 3 attendees for 30minutes (subject to fair use).

Meet with anyone

Close offers video meetings that don't require any new or complicated hardware to get everyone in the same room.

You and your teams, partners and customers can access your meeting room at any time, from any device; dial-in using a legacy videoconferencing unit, smartphone, tablet or computer, via web browser.

We also enable you to connect different video platforms and technology, all at the same time, within the same meeting. This means anyone can connect, wherever they are, on the technology they're familiar with.

Native Microsoft Experience

Unlike other providers, Close retains the native end-user experience of Skype for Business.

  • Add an Outlook contact - simply add your Virtual Meeting Space as a contact with the room address as the email address.
  • Skype for Business search - simply enter the name of your Meeting Space into the search, as you would for a normal contact.
  • Video calling experience - click 'Start a Video Call' to initiate a meeting and remain within Skype for Business.
  • Send invites from Outlook - invite a contact with details for other platforms and devices to join – by Audio, URL, IP or SIP/H.323 .

This eliminates the need for expensive training and lowers the cost of implementation and management; users continue using the devices and platform they are familiar with.

No plugins. No 3rd party applications. Simply Skype for Business.
