ON24 Reports Surge in Registrant Mobile Device Use
ON24, Inc., the global leader in webinars and virtual communication solutions, reported today that use of mobile devices by webinar registrants increased significantly in 2013.
According to ON24 Chief Product Officer and CTO Jayesh Sahasi, ON24's "one-click access / no downloads / no apps" philosophy is fueling the use of mobile devices to register for and view ON24 webinars and other rich media content:
- 6% of ON24 viewers use mobile devices to register for webinars
- In 2013, the use of mobile devices by webinar registrants increased by 76%
Today's business user demands access to webinar content from any device, anytime and anywhere. "We have under way an ongoing effort to enhance the mobile support we provide to end users," said Sahasi. "We continue to build on and extend our technology lead for a wide variety of mobile devices, including iPhones and tablets—underscoring our commitment to providing ubiquitous access to online content," said Sahasi.
ON24 also affirmed today that it is making its webcasts accessible directly via Google Glass. "We understand that it is very early for use of Google Glass in the enterprise," Sahasi continued. "But because many ON24 users are already accessing ON24's virtual communications technology on mobile devices, making the platform available via Google Glass—with no app or downloads required—is consistent with our leadership position in the industry."
