IVCi Announces New Audio and Web Conferencing Services

Mark Weingarten,  Assistant Vice President of Customer Service and Operations, IVCi LLC.

Interview with
Mark Weingarten,
AVP of Customer Service & Operations

By Nina Parker

Q. What should our customers know about IVCi's new audio and Web conferencing services?
A. This is an exciting new offering because we are providing our customers a one-stop shop for all of their conferencing needs. Our clients can now expect the same level of reliability from their audio and Web conferences as they experience with their video conferences; they will have the full support of the experienced IVCi team to make sure each call is successful. In addition, our new Web conferencing services will allow customers to quickly and easily share their PC with other meeting participants. What a great way to collaborate!

Q. Why do customers need to manage their audio calls?
A. Very often when audio is part of an IVCi video conference, it is either not managed at all, or it is managed by another service provider. When either is the case, IVCi cannot ensure the complete success of the conference. Since most of our video calls have an audio component, we needed to find a solution that would connect the two services seamlessly - and by managing the audio we are now able to do that. We can disconnect and mute participants whenever needed, and reconnect anyone that drops off. Gone are the days that a single noisy cell phone user disturbs the whole meeting when their noise is amplified on a video or AV system. As a single provider, we monitor all aspects of the meeting, and in this way make sure it is successful.

Q. Is the audio conferencing service easy for anyone to use?
A. Absolutely. IVCi handles all aspects of the audio call when it is integrated with video. We supply users with a participant code that is unique to their account, and all they have to do is dial in. There is also a feature called 'click to call' that lets a user click on a link and go into a browser page, which will allow the system to call them. This makes it easy for users who find it tedious to enter 20 digits when making a call. This is especially useful for attendees that might be commuting. There is nothing more frustrating than trying to type all those digits in when you are supposed to be "hands free" and watching the road.
We also recommend IVCi's audio conferencing service for those customers who are not using video. Meeting participants simply just use the participant and host codes to conduct audio calls, then use the service the same way they would with their current provider. If they want more functionality, they can use their browser and control the call themselves. When the conferences have a large number of participants, we can manage the call as an event, which means an operator connects everyone and stays on the call throughout, guaranteeing a successful experience for all.
I should also note that all of these services are very competitively priced. I'm not a sales-person but I thought I would throw that in.
