Jinfo is moving to an easier to use online platform for its webinars and Community sessions. Find out more and learn about the benefits.


As Head of Product at Jinfo, I'm delighted to announce that our programme of enhancements continues apace.

Following internal review of our current option and customer feedback we are moving Jinfo's webinars and Community sessions to a new platform.

We evaluated a range of options and have chosen a platform called Zoom. Zoom offers a number of features which will make it quicker and easier to register and get more out of the sessions, including:

  • Intuitive to use
  • Option to view presentations from PC/laptop/device and dial in from phone
  • Extensive "local number" dial in options, if your environment means it's preferable to use a phone rather than PC for audio
  • Additional in-meeting features that make it easier for attendees to interact
  • No local software download required, making it more accessible to our users - although additional functionality is available with download
  • Simple chat box. 

We are switching to the new platform from 1st October for all our webinars and Community sessions. It will also be our platform of choice for individual calls with customers, where we often use features such as screen-sharing, with Zoom being a stable way to do that. 

Try Zoom before the switch

If you'd like to try Zoom out before the October 1st switchover, do book into a Zoom walkthrough with me on 13th September at 7pm (11:00 Pacific / 13:00 Central / 14:00 Eastern / 19:00 (BST) / 20:00 Europe) or 17th September at 2pm (08:00 Central / 09:00 Eastern / 14:00 (BST) / 15:00 Europe) where we'll run through key features.  

We also have a quick guide available for download.
