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 Wise. 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.
