Intermedia Launching Conference Bridges Service for Small and Mid-Size Businesses

Rounds Out Suite of Communications Offerings on Heels of PBX Launch

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - August 26, 2010) -  Intermedia, the world's largest Microsoft Exchange hosting provider, is set to launch its Conference Bridges offering next week. The service is an add-on to the company's hosted Exchange offering. It allows customers to host conference calls featuring dial-in numbers and pass codes for a flat-rate monthly fee. The launch comes on the heels of Intermedia's hosted PBX debut and supports the company's evolution into a full business communications provider.

"Our customers can manage Conference Bridges in Intermedia's HostPilot® Control Panel, right alongside Intermedia's services for business email, hosted PBX, document management, mobility and secure instant messaging," says Jonathan McCormick, COO, Intermedia. "Our focus is on providing small and mid-size businesses with the enterprise-class services they need to compete -- in a way that is simple to set up, use and manage."

Conference Bridges help companies speed decision making, increase sales, and cut unnecessary business travel. Because Intermedia offers the service for a flat monthly fee, there are no per-minute charges and no minimum usage commitments. A bridge number can be set up for a specific user or be shared amongst a department or the company. Intermedia's Conference Bridges come in two options -- an Open option that allows participants to speak as soon as they join, and a Moderated option that requires a moderator PIN to be entered before participants can speak. Toll-free and direct dial-in numbers are provided with the service.

Intermedia is the premier provider of communications services, including hosted Microsoft Exchange, to small and mid-sized businesses. For an affordable monthly fee, customers get business email, VoIP telephony, smartphones, instant messaging, fax, conference bridges and other communications delivered as a service with 24x7 support. Intermedia also empowers thousands of smaller VARs and MSPs -- as well as select Fortune 500 companies -- to sell communications services under their own brand. Founded in 1995, Intermedia was the first company to offer cloud-based business-class email and now has over 250,000 premium hosted Exchange mailboxes under management -- more than any other provider.
