Chichester, England (PRWEB) May 30, 2006
WiredRed®, a technology leader in real-time communications software, today announced that The Dental Channel has chosen e/pop® Web Conferencing to teach new dental techniques without requiring users to spend time and money commuting to lectures. e/pop empowers The Dental Channel, a company dedicated to professional development for dentists, to offer its distance learning tools to dentists located throughout the U.K., eliminating the need to travel to special facilities for certification training. The Dental Channel produced an award-winning CD-ROM that is used throughout the U.K. by dentists seeking certification in various specialized fields of dentistry.
The Dental Channel was seeking a method by which it could complement its existing learning materials and make the information as available and accessible to its client base as possible. It discovered WiredRed’s e/pop Web Conferencing software and decided to pilot the application.
“We decided to trial a 25-user license to first gauge the amount of interest in the remote lectures and secondly, to see whether the software could meet our demands,” explains The Dental Channel MD, Andrew Gould.
e/pop offers a solution to organizations looking for a convenient and secure form of communication. With features such as multiparty audio and video, remote control, record & playback and application/desktop sharing, e/pop provides the ability to conduct online meetings and training seminars with anyone at any time, no matter where they are located. The technology is ideal for organizations seeking to offer the opportunity for career development and advancement without the burden of travel.
“The positive feedback gained since the pilot scheme has been so promising that we have now decided to fully implement the technology into our system,” comments Gould. “The beauty of e/pop is that our dentists can gain an hours worth of education and professional development by hearing and seeing presentations from subject experts and interacting with the lecturer.”
“The reason that employees attend conferences is to gather information, meet colleagues and take a break from the office. But this is not always practical for professions such as dentistry,” comments WiredRed U.K. MD Tom Sloan. “The time spent traveling to and attending such lectures is best spent back in the practice attending to the needs of the patients. The service being provided by The Dental Channel means they can attend lectures that fit into their schedule.”
