Hosting a webinar shouldn’t be rocket science. Audio and web conferences aren’t brain surgery. And, customer care doesn’t include a system of beeps and prompts. It should be user friendly, reliable and supported by a team of professionals, which is exactly what we deliver.
Focus on Your Conference
We understand your needs so you can focus on the substance of your conference and not the technology.

How We Got Here
In 2000, a fearless and persistent team of entrepreneurs set out to build a great audio and web conferencing technology company. We wanted to build a company that we would all be extremely proud of – one that succeeded in the market because of great products and remarkable customer service. We felt that if we could succeed at this, impassioned customer referrals would follow and our continued growth would be assured. When we began our journey, we were guided by a number of principles. These principles are as true today as they were when we started:
Passion, innovation and useful technology are the cornerstones of our business but we also live by a set of key principles to ensure customer success and employee engagement:
- Build products that are rock solid and really easy to use.
- Provide exceptional customer service.
- Deliver outstanding value to our customers.
- Create a work environment that we want to go to every day.
