There are so many business tools out there it's tough trying to find the correct one for your team. The important goal is to find the right tool others are using, making collaboration much easier.

As more and more people are working away from the office, bringing people together is essential to make sure projects are kept on track. To achieve this, we turn to messenger tools, but there are few which tick all the boxes and are used across industries. Can anyone remember the days of ICQ? We used this for team online project management until it was turned in to a chat tool aimed at kids. Same with Skype and recent changes.

CyberLink is attempting to revolutionise this industry by bringing out a combined messenger, video meeting and webinar tool. CyberLink has a history of producing video creation tools and is bringing their lag-free HD quality technology to video meetings, enabling clear 30fps refresh rates. Impressive.

CyberLink U is the new tool, available for Windows, Mac, iOS and Android platforms. Simply described, it enables a business to connect to other team members and open an online chat, video meeting or host an online video presentation for up to 100 people.

CyberLink U is subscription-driven. The Basic subscription is completely free and will enable a small business to host a virtual meeting for up to 25 people, for a maximum 50 minutes per meeting. PRO 50 is $9.95/month and enables up to 50 participants and a 24-hour meeting, where required. PRO 100 is $19.95/month and enables 100 participants. To host a webinar, the Basic plan will enable 25 participants and a 60 minute presentation. Move up to PRO 100 for £29.99/month for 100 participants and an 8 hour presentation and PRO 500 at $99.99/month will enable 500 participants.

Note that this is the iOS and Android version of U Messenger, which enables you to connect to a CyberLink U chat with colleagues.
