(PRWeb UK) May 17, 2010
In this difficult time for both the British economy and airline industry, Europe’s leading conference call provider Powwownow is jumping on board with BA and alleviating some of the pressure by offering business travellers free conference calling during the strike period.
The strike, set to run from 18th May to 9th June 2010 in blocks of five days, is going to cause considerable disruption for many people across the Nation. After long negotiations between BA chiefs and Unite, the union that represents the BA cabin crew, it has been determined that cabin crew will continue with their proposed walk-out next Tuesday.
‘At this time of economic uncertainty this is bad news for BA staff, BA management and Britain’, comments Powwownow CEO Andy Pearce. ‘Whilst we can’t get people away on half term breaks or to the World Cup, we can at least allow people to have meetings and continue business as usual, without worrying about whether they can fly or not.’
Business travelers have been hit hard recently. The recent volcanic ash cloud crisis effectively ground business travel to a hault. As the ash cloud lingers whilst remaining unpredictable business travelers can no longer guarantee with confidence that they will reach their destination. The imminent disruption resulting from the upcoming strike presents even further strain on businesses and the wider economy.
In the midst of disruption and uncertainty of this nature technology can come to the fore. Conference calls are a practical alternative to travel allowing business communication to continue unscathed and in turn contribute to the wider economy.
In order to access this offer and make free Powwownow conference calls from the 17th May just visit http://www.flypowwownow.co.uk and register.
Powwownow was founded in 2004, offering customers low-cost conference calling facilities with the ethos of no booking, no billing, no fuss. (The customer does not need to book a conference room and never receives a bill from Powwownow, just the cost of a 0844 call added to their bill). Turnover for 2009 is expected to reach £7m. The company operates in 15 countries including the US and major European markets.
Powwownow employs 32 people and is based in Richmond, London.
