iLINC SELECTED BY IDe FOR ORGANIZATION-WIDE WEB CONFERENCING
Company Selects iLinc to Eliminate Recurring Service Fees
PHOENIX, Arizona (February 17, 2006) –
iLinc Communications, Inc. (AMEX:ILC), developers of Web conferencing software and audio conferencing solutions today announced that Integrated Development Enterprise, Inc. (IDe®), the leading provider of Product Portfolio Management solutions, has selected iLinc for company-wide Web conferencing. IDe chose iLinc’s Web conferencing software to enable the organization to purchase and own their solution and eliminate recurring fees. IDe projects that their iLinc solution will pay for itself within 18 months by avoiding monthly charges from their previous vendor.
IDe uses Web conferencing organization-wide for sales presentations, marketing Web casts, internal meetings and customer support. The company selected the iLinc hosted software solution, which enables companies to buy their Web conferencing software and host it at the iLinc co-location facility. The result is that IDe enjoys the savings of a one-time purchase fee for unlimited Web conferencing without placing extra responsibility on their IT resources.
“In evaluating a new Web conferencing provider, we were looking for a solution that would address the needs of different departments that depend on Web conferencing and a solution that would make better financial sense for the company,” said Thomas Keddy, technical services manager for IDe. “iLinc offered the best functionality and value as well as outstanding service and support. We are now enjoying a better product and substantial savings.”
“As Web conferencing usage within any organization grows, software solutions become attractive because they offer important benefits over other application service providers including cost savings and a high ROI; better control and security; integration with existing applications; and unlimited usage,” noted James M. Powers, Jr., president and chief executive officer of iLinc Communications. “IDe is a great example of a company using Web conferencing throughout their organization that will benefit greatly by owning the software solution instead of renting it.”
Until the end of March, iLinc is offering special incentives for organizations that wish to transition from their current Web conferencing ASP provider to iLinc Web conferencing software. Interested parties can receive more information by contacting iLinc at email@example.com.
