NEWARK, Del., Aug. 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Conference Group recently completed a month-long giveaway to celebrate the launch of its new Group-e mobile conference app. During the giveaway, contestants could enter through a special contest page on The Conference Group website. No purchase was necessary for the contest, which allowed one entry per person each day. The grand prize, a $200 Amazon gift certificate, was given to an entry randomly selected from the whole pool.
The purpose of the giveaway was to increase awareness of The Conference Group's free mobile app, Group-e. The app itself costs nothing, and is compatible with the iPhone, Android, and BlackBerry devices. "With the increase in mobile phone restrictions while driving, there was a demand for a mobile app like Group-e that makes connecting to a conference call available with one touch. It also removes the hassle of having to remember dial-in numbers and passcodes. But one of the best things about Group-e is that it truly is an app for everyone. It works with most conferencing companies' audio bridges, and not just with the Conference Group services," explains Sean Shannon of The Conference Group.
Group-e is the first app of its kind. Few other companies have been bold enough to publish a free app that is compatible with more than just their own group audio conference systems. However, the demand for this kind of app certainly exists: it is becoming increasingly common for businesspeople to forego their traditional desk phones and conduct business remotely via smartphone. Innate handling of group calls on these phones can be clunky without a third-party app to assist with organization. This innovation is the latest to be produced by The Conference Group, which has established itself as one of the leading providers of conference call services.
