eircom, Irish provider of fixed and mobile telecommunications, and PGi, a provider of virtual meetings whose European headquarters are located in Clonakilty Co. Cork, today announced a new, multi-year strategic alliance.
With this new alliance, eircom will offer PGi’s full suite of video, web and audio conferencing solutions, including iMeet and GlobalMeet, to its business customers in Ireland. iMeet delivers secure, cloud-based video conferencing that enables up to 15 people to meet face-to-face online – anytime, anywhere, from their desktop, tablet or mobile device. GlobalMeet has an easy-to-navigate user interface, requires no software downloads for meeting guests and offers a unique “connect me” feature that automatically calls attendees, making dial-in numbers and passcodes obsolete.
Commenting on the announcement, Peter Smyth, director of marketing & product development for eircom said “eircom is committed to offering the most up to date technology and innovative solutions to our customers. We are delighted to work with PGi who are experts in delivering fully integrated web conferencing and audio conferencing solutions. The new range of products will be of huge benefit to our business customers and will undoubtedly lead to greater efficiencies for them. In today’s business environment where managing time and costs are key, more and more businesses are moving towards web and audio based meetings and our new services facilitate these requirements.”
“We are excited about our new strategic alliance with eircom,” said John Stone, PGi EVP Europe & Managing Director. “eircom has incredible scale and a strong enterprise customer base in Ireland, which is a solid complement to PGi’s deep expertise in the virtual meetings space. Together, we look to provide Irish companies with solutions that help them collaborate in more meaningful ways whilst increasing business productivity.”
