CHICAGO, September 19, 2012 – InterCall, a subsidiary of West Corporation and the world's largest conferencing and collaboration services provider, today announced the launch of a new online community for small business leaders.
"InterChange is the intersection of commerce and collaboration, providing small business leaders a cost-effective and easy way to enhance their lead-generation efforts. The site connects prospective customers, potential investors and decision makers in one location," said Kathleen Finato, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Business Development at InterCall. "InterChange also features collaboration and meeting technologies from InterCall to help drive business success."
This free community is organized into various sections where small business leaders can meet with their target influencers, attend webcasts, and take advantage of exclusive offers from leading brand companies and other small businesses. In the Networking Café, visitors can chat and network with partners and customers, view job listings, participate in live discussions and explore current promotions and offers. The InterChange Resource Center houses whitepapers, presentations, videos and other collateral that visitors can put into a virtual briefcase for later viewing.
While the community is free to participate, for a small investment businesses can design a “storefront” in the Small Business Marketplace. They can showcase products and services through uploaded videos, collateral and presentations. They also can communicate one-on-one with visitors in real-time, highlight special offers, access lead information for anyone who comes to their booths, and direct attendees to their websites and social media sites.
Throughout this inaugural week, InterChange will host a series of InterCall-sponsored webcasts developed to benefit small businesses.For more information and details on how to open a booth in the Small Business Market Place or Enterprise Exchange, visit the InterChange storefront in the community.
