Outlook Plugin

Schedule and launch a VC from your email

Most video conferencing meetings are organised via an email invitation, so what if there was a way to join a VC call directly from your email, without the usual infrastructure requirements associated with this type of meeting? Thanks to the power of The Omega Cloud, this seamless transition between receiving a meeting invitation and joining a secure video conference from practically any device is now possible with our bespoke plugin for Microsoft Outlook.

Featuring a flexible licensing model and low monthly fee per user, our Outlook Plugin solution allows VC meeting organisers to invite an unlimited number of participants directly from a button displayed in their email. Confirm the date, time and virtual meeting room (VRM) and send a VC invite just like you would a meeting request. It’s that simple. Participants will then receive an invitation email containing a unique pin to securely join the meeting from either their browser, VC system, or telephone.

New features added November 2018:

  • MOBILE INTEGRATION – Receive an Omega Cloud meeting invitation on your phone and join the video conference from your mobile device
  • CROSS-PLATFORM SUPPORT – The Omega Cloud VC plugin is now compatible with Outlook for Mac, Outlook Online, and Windows
  • MEETING START COUNTDOWN – Users who have clicked on the ‘join via browser’ link will be presented with a countdown if the meeting is not yet active
  • ADDITIONAL MAC COMPATIBILITY – Users can now join a meeting manually via Skype for Business on Mac

The Omega Outlook plugin further refines and augments the immediacy and simplicity of video conferencing.
