iLinc Communications, Inc. (AMEX:ILC), a leading developer of Web conferencing software and audio conferencing solutions, announced today that an unnamed Fortune 500 provider of telecommunication services had selected iLinc as its Web conferencing solution. After a rigorous evaluation, the company chose the iLinc Suite for its proven ability to ensure attendees can get into online meetings reliably and with ease. The new customer utilizes virtual classroom Web conferencing to provide employee training across all of its locations in more than 30 states.

They needed to improve the training experience for their new and existing 15,000 employees

    "They needed to improve the training experience for their new and existing 15,000 employees," indicated Jason Walker, iLinc's VP of Sales. "The company will standardize on the iLinc's Web conferencing Suite, and particularly LearnLinc because of its enhanced feature-rich virtual classroom distance learning capability, most notably its recording ability, attendee survey tool, and participation meter that allows session leaders to know each attendee's level of engagement in training. Also important, specifically within the company's IT group, is its ability to now centrally manage administration of the Web conferencing software all the way down to the user level," concluded Mr. Walker.

Before using iLinc, the company utilized online meeting software from WebEx. The company switched to iLinc's Web Conferencing Suite, because of the product's superior virtual classroom distance learning features and functions, among other reasons.

LearnLinc is a powerful virtual classroom tool for distance learning with a host of industry-leading features such as: application and desktop sharing; breakout groups; electronic hand raising; integrated audio; multimedia courseware; participation monitoring; synchronized Web content; streaming video; polling; surveys; testing and assessment. iLinc was recently awarded a Gold Award as a leader in customer satisfaction, features and ROI by the e-Learning Guild, a national group of e-Learning design, development, and management professionals. It enables organizations to train geographically dispersed teams, all at the same time, with high levels of interactivity.

"The switch by yet another Fortune 500 organization evidences the continued success of our direct sales efforts. As a part of our sales strategy, we actively uncover organizations that are users of our competitor's products, and then provide to the customer what we believe to be an industry leading product with an unmatched return on investment, said James M. Powers, Jr., iLinc's President and Chief Executive Officer.

Continued Dr. Powers, "As one of the very few, enterprise-class providers that is focused on Web conferencing, we are winning over more and more of the Fortune 500 that truly appreciate the feature depth and reliability that the iLinc Suite of conferencing products provides. As our web conferencing solution is scrutinized by those who consider it mission critical to their business, using factors like usability, scalability and reliability, they often switch to what we believe to be a superior product offering.

Our indirect sales channel is expanding and new partnering opportunities opening up as consequence of recent changes in the Web conferencing industry, notably the acquisition of WebEx by Cisco and recent acquisition by IBM. To that end, we have identified key telecommunications providers who are actively pursuing a unified communications strategy to compete with Cisco, Microsoft and IBM. For example, we are in discussion with several potential partners in the IP PBX space who see iLinc's enterprise class Web conferencing solution as a key component of their unified communications strategy," concluded Dr. Powers.
