IOCOM Customer Acquisition Accelerates; Highlights Diverse Industry Uses

New Customer Acquisition Through Midyear 2014 Is up 46% From the Previous Year

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - July 29, 2014) - IOCOM, a leading provider of video conferencing and collaboration solutions, proudly announces rapid customer growth for its award winning platform VisiMeet, highlighting that new customer acquisition through June 2014 is up 46% from the previous year. According to many leading research analysts, the growth for visual communications is exploding for providers of efficient software-based solutions that leverage the cloud for delivery and access. Meanwhile, legacy hardware manufacturers with household names are witnessing declining growth and eroding margins as they struggle to re-engineer their bulky platforms to support the cloud and leverage trends for mobility and "bring your own device" (BYOD).

Evanston, IL-based Acquirent provides recruiting, training, outsourced sales and management services to a diverse array of clients both large and small. Acquirent recently deployed VisiMeet to serve the needs of its dispersed sales team as well as support customer initiatives. Acquirent CEO Joseph P. Flanagan commented "in order for Acquirent to be most effective with our clients, we have to understand and be part of their corporate culture. Acquirent works quite extensively with our clients and we believe we can be stickier with them leveraging a strong visual communications platform. VisiMeet allows us to understand our clients and their needs by having greater connectivity."

Flanagan noted that his company had been using a variety of products that lacked an immersive experience due to poor quality audio/video, inability to support more than 1:1 meetings, and confusing user interfaces. Flanagan adds "we did a complete market analysis and selected VisiMeet because it was the easiest to operate for new users and the most stable solution for both us and our clients. We have used Skype in the past for certain clients and found it to be a 'minor league' product in comparison to VisiMeet. When we saw the stability of VisiMeet including the strength of the video, voice connectivity and screen sharing capabilities, we felt other products paled in comparison."

Greater Minneapolis-based Bormann Marketing is a leading distributor of professional audio/video and professional entertainment products. Simply put, they know audio and video. President Jon Bormann has been delighted with the platform since implementing, stating "every Monday morning we use the service to hold a company meeting. We also invite our manufacturers to join us in doing product updates and trainings. I have found the meetings to be far more productive and engaging once everyone started seeing people live. Participation is up, more attention is paid to the material, and we have better interaction so all in all a more productive use of our time."

Hammond, Indiana-based PacMoore offers contract manufacturing and packaging for the food industry. It provides the service of processing, creating and packaging materials that their customers either use further in their food manufacturing processes or sell directly to their customers. Over 300 employees operate out of two production facilities along with multiple remote locations for sales and service.

Among the strengths PacMoore offers is a commitment to customer service, quality, training and flexibility. Scott Reid, Vice President of Operations commented "VisiMeet was chosen due to its ease of use, flexibility and the ability to intuitively use with little to no training required. Initial usage was smooth and easy and IOCOM support has been exceptional and readily available."

PacMoore leverages VisiMeet for activities occurring between their manufacturing facilities, for meetings with customers and consultants, and for meetings requiring the participation of individuals traveling abroad. Reid concluded "We have found IOCOM to be setting the bar very high, as I would consider them to be an industry leader in their offerings to support video conferencing that is very robust and functional across all business platforms being used."

Tim Hackett, IOCOM CEO, comments "we are seeing increasing uptake of VisiMeet across a broad spectrum of industries and use cases, whether it be sales teams, human resources, manufacturing or executive leadership roles". He adds "the imperative for real time, easy to use, high quality, and interactive visual communications from anywhere and on any device is being adopted by industry leaders who see collaboration as a business enabler. Acquirent, PacMoore and Bormann Marketing are three respective leaders in their fields who we are proud to welcome as valued new customers."

IOCOM develops, markets, and supports enterprise visual communications and collaboration solutions that enable multi-point collaboration for a variety of uses. IOCOM delivers innovative cloud-based solutions that enable multiple groups or individuals to instantly collaborate anytime and anywhere over their chosen medium. The company is the first collaboration software developer to integrate multiple high performance data and video windows with high performance audio across any device including Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, Android devices and WebRTC endpoints.
