Government organizations faced with critical communications technology decisions are influenced by factors unique to the public sector including security mandates, regulatory statutes, preparedness and telework initiatives all while continuing to meet high performance expectations. Recently several state governments have turned to iLinc Communications, Inc. (AMEX:ILC), a leading developer of Web conferencing software and audio conferencing solutions, to provide that balance between performance and security.

We use iLinc to perform multiple online training sessions weekly for our staff and managers

    Arizona, Utah, Oregon and Louisiana are all using iLinc's Collaboration Web conferencing suite among their state agencies to reduce travel time, decrease time spent making critical decisions, save money and even realize substantial environmental benefits. iLinc offers the most advanced encryption methods, requires no third-party plug-ins and no changes to network or desktop configurations. Since iLinc can be installed securely behind the agency's firewall, there are no concerns about uploading confidential information to an outside server. iLinc also offers a secure hosting solution for agencies that wish to take advantage of the return on investment associated with a software purchase but would rather have iLinc provide their software as a Web-based software as a service.

"We use iLinc to perform multiple online training sessions weekly for our staff and managers," says David Ray Walker, Training and Development, Distance Learning Group, Oregon Department of Human Services. "The software enables us to reach more students without having to bring everyone into the same location, saving time and money."

In Arizona, iLinc will be used as the Web conferencing software and audio conferencing solution of choice by the Arizona Department of Health Services, Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System, Arizona Department of Commerce, Arizona Government University, Office of the Governor, and Government Information Technology Agency. Other state agencies are expected to be added over the next 12 months.

"We looked at many solutions, and iLinc simply came out ahead in terms of the technology," said Chris Cummiskey, Chief Information Officer for the State of Arizona, and Director for the Government Information Technology Agency. "We're really excited about the iLinc Web conferencing solution and how it will, in a very short time, be able to demonstrate productivity and environmental benefits."

iLinc is the only enterprise-class Web conferencing provider that offers a hybrid license model whereby organizations can purchase iLinc's award-winning web conferencing software in combination with hosting the solution with iLinc. Customers own the web conferencing software providing an unmatched return-on-investment, yet get all the benefits of the hosted Software as a Service (SaaS) model. This flexibility has proven valuable to government entities looking for a range of implementation models across multiple agencies.
