Glance.net Offers Free Month of Web Conferencing to Stranded Air Travelers

ARLINGTON, MA--(Marketwire - April 25, 2008) - Glance Networks, Inc. (www.glance.net), creator of "one-click" desktop sharing, today began offering a free month voucher for Web conferencing services to air travelers who have lost valuable time to the recent spate of cancellations, delays and other frustrations at airports nationwide. Glance lets teams instantly collaborate online on presentations, software demos, document editing, design proofing, remote training and more -- all without leaving the ground.

The past month has visited new levels of pain on weary travelers, leaving them stranded and unable to attend meetings. Recently, the Airline Quality Ratings (AQR) survey reported that 2008 is the worst year since the inception of the survey and American Airlines cancelled more than 2,000 flights in the wake of FAA inspections on its MD-80 fleet. On top of that, Aloha Airlines, ATA Airlines, Frontier Airlines and Skybus are either shutting down or filing for bankruptcy protection, which means more canceled flights.

"These kinds of delays have amounted to a loss in productivity that is nearly incalculable. We've heard reports from recent weeks of more than 300,000 displaced passengers who are missing meetings and losing sales," said Rich Baker, CEO of Glance Networks. "Our customers have eliminated or dramatically reduced their business travel by meeting remotely through Web conferencing. We want to assist these stranded travelers and anyone who's fallen victim to air travel delays and cancellations. So starting today, we're offering a free month voucher for Web conferencing to help them catch up on lost time."

The free month of Glance Web conferencing service (a $49.95 value) is available today through May 31 by clicking on http://glance.net/airlinewoe.
