PGi And AppDirect Alliance Brings IMeet® To A Cloud Marketplace Near You





ATLANTA, Oct. 22, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --  PGi (NYSE: PGI), a global leader in virtual meetings for over 20 years, today announced a new, strategic alliance with AppDirect, a leading cloud service marketplace company, to bring an innovative virtual meeting experience and other cloud-based business applications to small businesses and midsize companies around the world.

Under the terms of this multi-year alliance, AppDirect will offer PGi's cloud-based collaboration solution, iMeet, to its new and existing channel partners for inclusion in their cloud marketplaces. In addition, PGi will refer and resell AppDirect's platform services to its new and existing large channel partners, allowing AppDirect to build and manage cloud services marketplaces on their behalf.

"Every business – from start-up to global enterprise – needs reliable collaboration tools to stay connected and competitive in today's increasingly mobile world," said Boland T. Jones, PGi founder, chairman and CEO. "iMeet was built for the way businesses work today, and it's the ideal solution for enhancing business productivity and growth through more personal and collaborative virtual meetings. By reselling AppDirect's cloud marketplace platform to our global carrier partners, PGi will increase access to iMeet for businesses of all sizes worldwide."

iMeet is PGi's cloud-based collaboration solution that lets people meet face-to-face online from anywhere, anytime on any device.  iMeet was designed to drive more personal connections in virtual meetings, and it is commonly used for recruiting interviews, sales presentations, corporate training, team meetings and more.  iMeet incorporates the popular tools businesses use to collaborate, such as HD video, social networks and file sharing, and offers a full suite of desktop and mobile meeting apps.   

"We're seeing that small businesses prefer to acquire cloud applications in a bundled fashion and from a trusted provider, which is exactly what we've set out to make possible at AppDirect," said Daniel Saks, president and co-CEO, AppDirect. "With the increasing demand for virtual collaboration services, we're thrilled to offer our channel partners the opportunity to include iMeet in their cloud marketplaces."

AppDirect's state-of-the-art platform allows service providers to bundle leading cloud-based services with their traditional offerings. By bundling services, customers get the added convenience of receiving a single bill and accessing a single portal to manage all of their business applications.
