Chicago (January 13, 2005) – InterCall, one of the largest service providers in the world specializing in conference communications, received the 2005 Audio Conferencing Service of the Year Award at last night’s Frost & Sullivan Excellence in Information and Communications Technologies Awards Banquet.
Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this Award to a company that has efficiently allocated resources to improve market share without affecting other performance factors. InterCall received the Award for its numerous achievements including continued growth in market share, revenues and profitability, as well as innovation in the market.
“InterCall is honored to receive this prestigious Award,” said InterCall President Scott Etzler. “The continuous improvement of our products, service levels and processes is one of the core values upon which InterCall was founded. Attending to those values is the main driver behind our improved revenue and market share figures and, as we continue to do so, we believe that these types of achievements will continue throughout 2005.”
According to Frost & Sullivan, InterCall further advanced its industry leadership in 2004 despite an intensely competitive market by out-performing all other dedicated Conferencing Service Providers (CSPs). InterCall increased market share and achieved double-digit revenue growth due to the strength of its high quality products and partnerships within the conferencing industry.
InterCall currently meets the needs of its global client base in all areas of conferencing including audio, video, web and streaming. InterCall also has recognized the need, from a service provider standpoint, to enter into a more collaborative marketplace to meet the remaining needs of the consumers. The company has developed integrated products with leading players in the web conferencing industry to satisfy these additional market needs.
“InterCall has accomplished its growth objective by meeting customers' needs whether in reservationless audio conferencing, web conferencing or by helping a client host an event,” notes Frost & Sullivan research analyst James Regan. “It has retained its hold on the market with some smart innovation and partnership development strategies as well as through internal development. It is preparing for the future in the new conferencing and collaborative market by enhancing its current partnerships and better integrating its products with Voice Over Internet Protocol (VOIP).”
