PRESS RELEASE:

New Leader Phone Site Launched - Audio Conferencing Provider Launches New Site Focused on User Productivity

Leader Technologies

COLUMBUS, Ohio (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Leader Chairman Michael T. McKibben today announced the release of a new and improved Leader Phone(R) Audio Conferencing site at www.leaderphone.com. "Traditional audio conferencing is expensive, old technology with few features," McKibben said. "Leader Phone's innovations offer easy-to-use features that improve a company's productivity instead of dragging it down."

Leader Phone fixes the productivity problem with an array of flexible user-managed services like Star*1 direct dialing and Quick Call blast dialing. These features enable you to get people on the phone immediately, without having to drudge through the current cumbersome method of going offline, calling someone, giving them the dial in number and PIN, then both of you re-entering a live call. Another special feature is the powerful Web console that creates new PINs, manages calls with special privacy needs, and allows the user to manage his own account.

"We believe our current and prospective customers will be delighted by the changes to the Website and the introduction of new services," McKibben says.

Leader Phone's new media technology services meet the growing demands for audio conferencing to replace expensive and time consuming face-to-face meetings. An average 6-person in-town meeting, if conducted by audio conference instead of driving across town, can save an organization $1,000 in direct costs.

McKibben tells what happened when a happy, longtime customer participated in a mandatory bid for audio conferencing services. A Leader Phone competitor bid the contract below cost, winning the contract. Four months later the telecom director called. The new provider was failing miserably. The director heard nothing all day long but user complaints and comparisons to the superior quality of the Leader Phone services. "He asked if Leader Phone would take his users back, and of course we said yes," McKibben says with a smile.

"CIOs and telecom directors globally are under increasing pressure to find new and better ways to deploy audio conferencing," McKibben points out. "Leader has been studying these challenges for more than a decade. Our Leader Phone platform is staged to provide large-scale, integrated enterprise solutions. Our support of the entire Hurricane Katrina life-saving and recovery effort when over 1 million of Louisiana's phone lines went down proved that we can handle most any large-scale need. And we can also provide solutions for a one-person home office. We designed Leader Phone technology to deliver the same innovative services and features to large and small clients."
