ATLANTA, Aug. 24, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- PGi (NYSE: PGI), the world's largest dedicated provider of collaboration software and services, today announced that IT World Canada (ITWC) chose iMeetLive to host engaging, self-service webinars, helping the award-winning media and content marketing company reduce software costs by 25% and nearly triple revenue from its company-sponsored webinar program.

iMeetLive makes it easy to create professional quality webcasts and webinars for up to 10,000 people. The secure, cloud-based iMeetLive webcasting platform provides marketing and corporate communications teams with self-service and fully managed webinars for lead generation, town halls and other events. iMeetLive's robust feature set includes on-demand recording and replay, social media integration, audience interaction, event analytics and more.

"Sponsored webinars are integral to ITWC's thought leadership and demand generation programs—a key source of revenue for our business. Using the self-service dashboard, iMeetLive makes it so easy for us to plan, launch and host webcasts," said Donna Butts, ITWC general manager of events. "We've nearly tripled the number of sponsored webinars we host each year, which helps us not only drive growth within our business, but also deliver more qualified leads to our clients. With the 25% cost savings and PGi's amazing support team, we could not be happier with making the decision to switch to iMeetLive."

In addition to webcasting, PGi's expanding iMeet portfolio of unified communications and collaboration (UC&C) products includes all-in-one web, video and audio conferencing and an award-winning smart calendar app. PGi recently announced the integration of iMeet into all popular video room systems and endpoints, extending the utility of an organization's video investments to any desktop or smart mobile device.
