PGi Continues to drive Mobile Worker Productivity With iPhone App
First to Market Application Allows Business Users to Manage Audio Meetings on the iPhone
Sep 2, 2009
ATLANTA, September 02, 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 announced PGi Mobile, a new application ("app") for the Apple® iPhoneTM that empowers users to host and manage virtual meetings directly from their iPhones. Premiere Global launched this easy-to-use touch-screen collaboration application specifically to benefit the more than 40 million iPhone users looking for a better way to meet.
Developed to simplify the business collaboration experience, PGi Mobile enables meeting hosts to launch a meeting with a single click instead of searching for phone numbers and logins. PGi Mobile can search stored contacts so the host can invite and dial-out to instantly connect with attendees. In addition to allowing the host to view who is on a call and who is speaking, PGi Mobile easily accesses meeting features like recording, extra security and volume control through the touch screen interface.
PGi Mobile, which is a free app in the iTunes store and the first iPhone audio meeting app of its kind, – reinforces Premiere Global’s commitment to delivering world-class collaboration tools intended to engage its users no matter where they are – on the road, in an airport or while telecommuting. Premiere Global will launch later this year the next iteration of PGi Mobile to provide the same collaboration application for Blackberry users.
"Collaboration tools are more important than ever for today’s increasingly mobile workforce, which is facing new pressures on productivity," said David Guthrie, CTO, Premiere Global Services, Inc. "PGi Mobile gives our customers a significantly better experience by giving them more control of their virtual meetings. By launching PGi Mobile which allows iPhone users to seamlessly launch and manage meetings from anywhere in the world, Premiere Global furthers its goal of being the technology behind all virtual meetings."
