Intermedia, the world’s largest Microsoft Exchange hosting provider, is set to launch its Conference Bridges offering next week. The service is an add-on to the company’s hosted Exchange offering. It allows customers to host conference calls featuring dial-in numbers and pass codes for a flat-rate monthly fee. The launch comes on the heels of Intermedia's hosted PBX debut and supports the company's evolution into a full business communications provider.
"Our customers can manage Conference Bridges in Intermedia’s HostPilot® Control Panel, right alongside Intermedia’s services for business email, hosted PBX, document management, mobility and secure instant messaging,” says Jonathan McCormick, COO, Intermedia. “Our focus is on providing small and mid-size businesses with the enterprise-class services they need to compete – in a way that is simple to set up, use and manage."
Conference Bridges help companies speed decision making, increase sales, and cut unnecessary business travel. Because Intermedia offers the service for a flat monthly fee, there are no per-minute charges and no minimum usage commitments. A bridge number can be set up for a specific user or be shared amongst a department or the company. Intermedia’s Conference Bridges come in two options – an Open option that allows participants to speak as soon as they join, and a Moderated option that requires a moderator PIN to be entered before participants can speak. Toll-free and direct dial-in numbers are provided with the service.
