    CHICAGO, Jan. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- InterCall, the world's largest
 conferencing and collaboration provider, today announced the launch of its
 InterCall Web Meeting platform. This new conferencing service makes it
 easier than ever for businesses of all sizes to bring people together.
 InterCall Web Meeting was launched in response to customer demand for a
 simple tool that incorporates the most popular Web, audio and video
 conferencing tools. InterCall Web Meeting is a single unified interface
 that gives users a simple strategy for success. With one click from their
 desktop, they are collaborating with others in seconds.
     It is well known that conferencing saves businesses time and money, and
 provides the advantage of getting work done in the most efficient way
 possible by letting users remotely collaborate with colleagues and
 customers. But in the race to make conferencing the closest thing to an
 in-person meeting, more and more features were added to the point that the
 technology became overemphasized.
     According to Scott Etzler, president and CEO of InterCall, "The genius
 of InterCall Web Meeting lies in its ability to capture the essence of how
 people collaborate and deliver a solution that makes sense for everyone.
 Users can now focus on the interaction, not the technology. The unified
 features of this product are so simple, it will revolutionize the way
 people access the different types of communication they use in their
 everyday business."
     "We believe the launch of InterCall Web Meeting will drive employee
 demand for Unified Communications and Collaboration," said Bob Wise, Vice
 President of Marketing and Strategic Development, InterCall. "This is a
 simple way to experience many of the benefits of unifying your
 communications into one service without the expense and complexity of
 on-premise installations."
     The launch of InterCall Web Meeting also gives InterCall customers more
 choices. The company's suite of services already includes Microsoft(R) Live
 Meeting and the WebEx(TM) Business Suite. "Our mission is to serve
 businesses of all sizes. We want to provide our clients with a variety of
 choices that allow them to choose the best solution for their needs," said
     To ensure that InterCall Web Meeting users have the best possible
 experience, InterCall is backing it with the proprietary SwitchTower(R)
 network. This technology allows InterCall Web Meeting users to scale up to
 services that require more bandwidth, such as multipoint video, with no
 drops or delays. SwitchTower also protects users from hardware or software
 failures with built-in redundancy.
