SCHAUMBURG, IL -- (Marketwire) -- 03/23/10 -- Conference Plus, Inc. (ConferencePlus®), a subsidiary of Westell Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: WSTL) and a leading provider of global conferencing services, announced the launch of Mobile Connect, a mobile conferencing solution for ConferencePlus customers. Mobile Connect, which is currently available to download for free at iTunes and the Apple store, gives customers the ability to host and moderate their conference calls from their iPhone.
Mobile Connect is designed to give customers complete control of their Conference Anytime reservationless teleconferencing accounts. This design integrates the key functionality from the ConferencePlus Account Dashboard management console into the mobile application. Customers receive real-time access to an unlimited number of reservationless conferencing account profiles and can manage them directly from the Mobile Connect application. Call moderation features are available with one touch including the ability to start an audio conferencing recording, mute/unmute lines, and immediately access an operator for assistance.
"We constantly solicit feedback from our customer base to ensure the online tools we offer are on target," said Greg Doerr, COO, ConferencePlus. "Repeatedly we see positive feedback on how essential our Account Dashboard console has become to our customers' day-to-day operations. This assessment helped spur the development of the new Mobile Connect application, where we made it a top priority to most closely replicate the Account Dashboard user experience for our customers," Mr. Doerr added.
In addition to moderating their teleconferencing accounts and calls, customers can also launch audio conference calls from the Mobile Connect application. This functionality includes the ability to dial out directly to anyone in their iPhone address book.
"Our goal as a conferencing services provider is to give our customers the conferencing tools they need to be more productive and flexible in their daily communications," said Greg Doerr. "In today's business environment, more customers have a need to easily and safely conduct meetings from their mobile phones. We believe our new Mobile Connect application helps to fill that need," Mr. Doerr added.
