Intranets.com Announces Record Web and Audio Conferencing Numbers

Ease-of-Use and Affordability Drive Nearly Two Million Minutes of Usage in Two Months

BURLINGTON, MA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 24, 2005 -- Intranets.com (http://www.intranets.com), the world's leading provider of on-demand collaboration solutions, today announced that IntranetsMeeting, the company's web and audio conferencing solution, has realized record adoption, reaching close to two million minutes of usage over the last two months. Since IntranetsMeeting was launched in February 2004, thousands of users representing hundreds of businesses have adopted the solution to conduct easy online meetings from anywhere in the world.

"Before IntranetsMeeting, we used WebEx to conduct web and audio conferences, but as a small business, we found the cost and the features to be prohibitive for what we needed to accomplish," said David Hitrys, director of marketing at Integrated Computer Solutions. "Since switching to IntranetsMeeting, we've been able to conduct product demonstrations to customers and resellers all over the world at an affordable price with zero complaints from our sales people. In addition, Intranets.com's customer support is superb and really shows they want users to be thrilled with the service."

IntranetsMeeting is a full-featured web and audio conferencing solution that allows businesses to give presentations and manage conference calls -- all online. The solution is ideal for live, interactive presentations, sales demonstrations, staff meetings, training, support teams and more. IntranetsMeeting is offered as a premium service and can be fully integrated with the company's on-demand collaboration suite or purchased as a stand-alone solution.

"In the past, our organization only conducted phone conferences because web conferencing was too expensive for our non-profit budget," said David L. Dieterich, senior vice president and COO of eHealth Initiative. "IntranetsMeeting gives our Working Groups, which often include more than 100 participants from across the country, a new visual aspect to their meetings at a price that fits our budget. We can now leverage PowerPoint presentations and demonstrations in our conferences, making them far more productive and effective for everyone involved."

"When we introduced IntranetsMeeting, we purposely designed it to be easy-to-use, full-featured and affordable for a small business budget," said Karen Leavitt, vice president of marketing at Intranets.com. "Because of this approach, our usage numbers have soared over the last several months. We anticipate this momentum to continue as more and more businesses become disenchanted with many of the complicated and costly web and audio conferencing solutions on the market today."
