With the advent of Livelink MeetingZone, PVA was able to eliminate many on-site meetings, while still benefiting from the collaboration characteristic of a real-time meeting. PVA can set up and attend Livelink MeetingZone meetings using a standard Web browser, empowering real-time collaboration and eliminating the time-consuming security clearance activities of onsite meetings. Integrated within the secure environment of Livelink, MeetingZone leverages Livelink's robust collaboration and knowledge management functionality, facilitating the exchange of ideas and knowledge capture.
