"...rich functionality for creating and sharing information..., brainstorming and creativity, and increasing productivity."

Caucus is the world's best conferencing software. It gives people spaces online where they meet as teams, learning groups, and communities to create and share knowledge, experience, ideas, and information.

In static Web sites, information doesn't change or it is updated oh-so-sloowly. But Caucus is always evolving. You shape the conference center every time you visit. It's personal and meaningful, and it gets better all the time.
