PGi Partners With Deutsche Telekom: IMeet® Users Say “Auf Wiedersehen” To Soul-Sucking Meetings

Stocks in this article: PGI

PGi (NYSE: PGI), a global leader in virtual meetings, today announced a new, multi-year strategic alliance with Deutsche Telekom – naming the Bonn, Germany-based integrated telecommunications company as the exclusive reseller of PGi’s innovative iMeet video conferencing solution in Germany. As part of this multi-million dollar agreement, Deutsche Telekom will host iMeet in its data centers in Germany, and it will soon make iMeet available to subscribers in the Business Marketplace in the Deutsche Telekom Cloud Center. Deutsche Telekom plans to initially offer iMeet to Germany’s small business community beginning this summer and will expand to the German enterprise and consumer markets later this year.

“We are thrilled to announce our new strategic agreement with Deutsche Telekom,” said Boland T. Jones, PGi founder, chairman and CEO. “In evaluating our strategy to bring iMeet to key markets around the world, it became clear to us that Deutsche Telekom’s deep expertise in the telecommunications industry and global reach make the company an outstanding distribution and business partner.”

Launched in 2011, iMeet is PGi’s next-generation, web-based video conferencing solution that enables up to 15 people to meet face-to-face online – anywhere, anytime, from their desktop, tablet or mobile device. iMeet gives users their own personal meeting room online that combines video conferencing and audio conferencing with social networking and file sharing. iMeet was designed to bring a simple, human and enjoyable experience to online meetings.

“Through this strategic alliance, we are aiming to solve a major need in the German marketplace – especially among the country’s small business community – filling a void for an online meeting solution that is simple, personal and mobile with iMeet,” said Dirk Backofen, Senior Vice President Marketing Business Customers, Telekom Deutschland. “We look forward to building a strong business relationship with PGi in the years to come.”
