(562) 437-1411 ext 2721 Launches Corporate Solution: For Business

LONG BEACH, Calif. – March 09, 2015 –, the nation's leading privately-held provider of HD audio conferencing and collaboration services announces today the launch of For Business for mid-market to large organizations. Corporate customers now have the unique ability to use services on a large scale and leverage seamless and cost-efficient ways to increase productivity.

"We see a growing trend at enterprises to reconsider how they source and use conferencing services", said Marc Beattie, Senior Analyst & Partner at Wainhouse Research. "This trend is being driven by new initiatives for unified communications, web conferencing, and free services."

In a recent study Wainhouse Research conducted of IT decision makers (ITDM) at large enterprises, 83% stated they re-evaluate services at least every two years, 88% said they have participated in a free conference call, and 88% claimed the free conference meeting was about the same or better than their traditional paid services.

"Given that free conferencing minute volume is approximately 10% of the North American market, this is a significant trend, and the numbers suggest that free conferencing services for business are well positioned to compete equally with other business services," said Beattie.

With an estimated $3 billion spent each year on toll-free calls, For Business delivers a secure, high-quality solution to save companies up to 80% of their annual conferencing and collaboration spend. For Business even offers an interactive savings calculator to demonstrate the advantages of choosing its services.

"We're excited to launch For Business and deliver our best offerings to the corporate customer seeking white-label teleconferencing and significant cost savings," said Founder David Erickson. "There is no longer a need for mid-market to large organizations to pay incredulous amounts for conference calling and collaboration when the offering is secure, robust, and free."

More than 250 million users per year depend on services. The conferencing service is currently used by more than 800,000 businesses worldwide. For Business offers the following business features in addition to the standard capabilities:
