PHOENIX (PRWEB) July 31, 2008
As organizations seek to reduce expenses associated with rising travel, fuel costs, they increasingly turn to products like iLinc to enable effective employee and customer communication across locations. According to Gartner, by 2011, Web conferencing will be available to 75% of corporate users as a standard facility.
"We are pleased that the industry experts at Gartner placed iLinc in the Visionaries Quadrant in the Magic Quadrant report. iLinc has always been focused on ways to better enable people in organizations to meet and communicate, and we are aggressively working to take our leadership to the next level," said James M. Powers Jr., President and CEO for iLinc. "Evidenced by our newly announced iLinc 10 that delivers one of the most dynamic, elegant, capability-rich user experiences, which also features the iLinc Green MeterTM, the only tool on the market that actually measures travel costs and carbon emissions savings with each meeting—and our recent sale of audio conferencing assets for approximately $5 million in cash and earn out—it is clear why we believe iLinc has both the vision and strategy in place to cement our emerging position as the preferred provider for Web and video conferencing."
With the recent launch of iLinc 10, the boldest statement the software vendor has made, iLinc solidifies its position in the industry by significantly further enhancing collaboration and online sessions for its million-plus user population. The newest version of iLinc Web and video conferencing software underscores the company's aim to revolutionize the way people meet and communicate by enabling them to get more done, travel less, and achieve work-life balance while preserving the environment.
"We expect 2008 to be an exciting and productive year for iLinc and our customers," said Powers. "With the upcoming focus on further enhancing the iLinc Green Meter™ cost and carbon emissions calculator and the momentum of iLinc 10, we hope to further drive our position by continuing to help our customers meet and collaborate online more and travel less."
