 that brings relevance to communications, is debuting iotum Pronto Conferencing

 communications are relevant to the task at hand and avoiding unnecessary
 interruptions by simplifying the way telephone calls are handled.

 overload.  The iotum service is based on the iotum Relevance Engine(TM) -- an
 intelligent communications platform that understands who is calling and knows
 what to do with the call based on the user's preferences, priorities,
 behaviors, and other contextual information.

 location, iotum can:
     Bring relevant calls to users' attention and send the others to voicemail;
 Notice calling trends, such as back-and-forth calls to the same person, and
 ensure that important calls are brought to users' attention.
     iotum uses standards-based protocols and has a patent pending on the iotum
 Relevance Engine.
     The iotum service is delivered to end-user professionals through
 communications service providers.  Leading the way for relevant
