Powwownow Announce Unique Conference Call AppBy Powwownow, PRNE
Wednesday, April 27, 2011
Free app will provide a one of a kind cross-platform conferencing solution for all smartphone users, say Powwownow.
RICHMOND, England, April 28, 2011 - The conference call market has become awash with smartphone apps that
only perform a handful of functions, across one brand of phone, and usually
at a cost.
So, where is that completely free cross-platform device we're all waiting
for? The teleconferencing (www.powwownow.co.uk/Teleconference) app
that can work across Blackberrys, iPhones, Nokia smart phones and 'Androids'
as well as allowing people to dial in from a land line with those
extraordinary local, low-cost dial-in numbers users need?
Well, Powwownow (www.powwownow.co.uk/) is proud to announce it's
currently in the office, being tried, tested and polished to perfection, all
ready for its release early next month.
The new app will be the first of its kind, with all of the reminders,
calendar scheduling and contact import features of rival apps - yet with the
ultimately unique aspect of allowing users to teleconference between mobiles,
landline and VOIP providers - wherever the callers are in the world.
There is also the fact that with the Powwownow mobile app, the user is
sent a reminder to their smart phone device three minutes before their
conference call (www.powwownow.co.uk/Conference-Call) is due to start,
we GEO-locate the user and automatically choose the best dial-in number for
their conference call, and because we know who the user is, and what
conference call they're entering, there's no need for them to enter a pesky
PIN as they once did. Meaning no matter who they want to speak to, and no
matter what type of phone they have, they'll be able to connect
simultaneously with up to 30+ people at the single touch of a button.
The first version of the Powwownow app was voted amongst the must have
business apps of 2010 (
none other than CNBC.
Excited much? We are!
Powwownow was founded in the UK in 2004, offering customers low-cost
conference calling facilities with the ethos of no booking, no billing, no
fuss. The customer does not need to book a conference room and never receives
a bill from Powwownow. They only pay the cost of their own call, which is
added to their standard telecoms bill. The company now operates in 15
countries worldwide including the US and major European markets and recently
acquired web conferencing and business collaboration providers, Yuuguu.
Turnover for 2011 is predicted to reach GBP10m.
