Jul 22, 2009

ATLANTA, July 28, 2009 - Premiere Global Services, Inc. (NYSE: PGI), a global provider of on-demand, applied communication technologies, today launched the PGi component for Adobe® LiveCycle® Enterprise Suite (ES) that integrates directly into the Premiere Global Communications Operating System (PGiCOS), a powerful, on-demand multi-modal communications platform.
 
Premiere Global Services, Inc. (NYSE: PGI), a global provider of on-demand, applied communication technologies, today launched PGiCOS email, a web services-based, fully-scalable email delivery platform positioned as a SaaS-based alternative for high volume email senders.

PGiCOS email offers simple integration with the PGi Communications Operating System to readily enable business rules for trigger transactions. As a cloud-based solution with powerful disaster recover capabilities, industry leading security settings and real-time results streamed or in batch, PGiCOS email has run with five-nines uptime since its creation in early 2009. PGiCOS email is the first infinitely-scalable on-demand alternative to premise-based email deployments, and it empowers the biggest mailers with full control along with better economics, robust deliverability tools and world class support.
 
PGiCOS email offers a next generation API that can optimize the transmission of extremely large broadcasts and marketing campaigns and handle individual or small batch transactions. Built on restful APIs, PGiCOS email distributes traffic over multiple facilities with hot-hot failover, and it contains enhanced deliverability controls like fine grain throttling per customer per ISP and automated throttling based on real-time calculation of bounce, click and feedback loop data. PGiCOS email is unique in the marketplace, with pricing based on capacity rather than cost per thousand.

"LeadLife launched our first PGiCOS email job using the API toolkit Premiere Global provided, and the process has been seamless. PGiCOS email helps make our business more competitive by getting our messages out quickly and with reliable deliverability, without a need to architect internal systems for email transmission," said Lisa Cramer, president of LeadLife Solutions.
