ConferTel Launches i-Present Web Conferencing Service

Company Enhances Online Presentation and Collaboration Suite

Carlsbad, CA, February 5, 2007ConferTel, a leading provider of teleconferencing solutions, today announced the introduction of i-Present, a robust, full-featured web conferencing service to its suite of online presentation and collaboration services.  i-Present allows customers to hold online meetings using desktop on-screen tools without additional software and hardware.

A high-impact productivity tool, i-Present delivers the features necessary for a successful online meeting and can be readily used by people of all skill levels without extensive training. i-Present features real-time collaboration, presentation/document viewing, application sharing, polling, integrated audio/visual recording, chat, Outlook® integration and more.   These tools can greatly increase the effectiveness of conference calls by allowing the presenter to share anything on his computer with his participants (PowerPoint, Excel, Word documents, applications, web tours, etc.). The service also integrates with MS Outlook® for seamless scheduling and participant notification.

The applications for i-Present include:

  • Presentations and events: Live one-way meetings, such as training sessions, product rollouts and formal presentations where a presenter delivers content to multiple attendees.
  • Collaborative conferencing: Two-way, interactive meetings in which the content, in any software application, can be manipulated onscreen in real time by participants. In this scenario, the host is granted flexible meeting control options and participants can brainstorm, create, and modify documents.

“Web conferencing services are quickly becoming one of the core components of successful, day-to-day business communications, and we’re giving our customers a comprehensive suite of collaborative services,” said Garrett Colbert, ConferTel’s Director of Sales & Business Development. “Combining i-Present web conferencing technology with our audio teleconferencing service allows us to add capabilities that will increase productivity and save our customers time and money.”
