Sento Corporation (Nasdaq:
SNTO) specializes in Right ChannelingSM, a proven methodology
designed to optimize customer contact solutions and ensure that
companies make informed choices for multi-channel communication
that support their business goals and customer expectations. The
following is a Q&A with Becky Green, Senior Learning &
Quality Manager, and Ken Guymon, Director of IT.
Q: We understand that Sento uses TurboMeeting to conduct
remote training for their representatives. Can you give us some
examples of how you use TurboMeeting?
A: “We have used Turbo Meeting on a number of occasions for
training and meetings, including our company wide meeting
consisting of many users. We have shared numerous PowerPoint
presentations, web tools, and various applications. We use
TurboMeeting several times each week.”
Q: Where there any problems or specific issues that you
needed to resolve with a Web conference solution?
A: “We felt we needed to reduce the time it took to get meetings
started as we were spending more time on troubleshooting then
the presentations. We needed an easy way for the participants to
view the presentations and at the same time we were looking to
reduce or contain our costs.”
Q: Can you describe how your TurboMeeting installation went?
A: “It was a very simple installation. Following the
instructions, it was completely setup in about 15 minutes.”
Q: What specific features of TurboMeeting are most important
A: The features we like and use are Interactive Meeting,
Seminar, Recurring Meeting, the Record feature, the ability to
Change Controller and Presenter features, as well as the Chat.
We haven’t had any issues with these features.
Q: Can you think of specific examples of how efficiency or
productivity has been improved?
A: “When used for training or meetings there are no issues
getting connected to RHUB, which saves a lot of time. It is very
easy to hold a meeting, and for users to join meetings. The fact
that users can view the meeting with no download has greatly
improved our ability to have people view our presentations.”
“With our TurboMeeting-500, we recently hosted a large meeting.
This meeting held 80 attendees who used “View Only” to the
presentation without any download, along with 18 interactive
attendees who had rights to present. It worked like a charm.”
Q: Have you used other Web conferencing solutions?
A: “In the past we have used the mainstream Web conference
solutions. We found that when we scheduled a meeting or
training, many participants had a difficult time getting
connected for one reason or another. At times we found that we
spent more time troubleshooting connectivity issues than in the
meeting or training itself!”
Q: “Are you satisfied with the TurboMeeting, or are there any
changes or additions you'd like to see?
A: “We are highly satisfied. It would be nice if when we
schedule a meeting in TurboMeeting, it would automatically
update our Outlook calendars on our Exchange server with the
meeting information – this would save us the need to schedule a
meeting in two places.”
Q: Do you have any additional statements you’d like to add?
“RHUB is much easier to use then our previous providers. We just
provide our students a URL for the training session and we are
able to start. There’s no software the student needs to install
or lengthy troubleshooting to get the students connected.”

“RHUB was very easy to setup and requires very little technical
support or administrative work for the company’s IT Department”
