MARKHAM, ON: pulse, a leader in computer telephony solutions, today announced the arrival of the newest addition to its software family – pulseconference. Although conference calls are nothing new, their popularity is continuously increasing. It was only natural for pulse to add this product to its award-winning platform.

For many businesses and individuals, conference calls alleviate the unnecessary expense and inconvenience of travel. pulseconference allows effective and timely communications between businesses, employees, investors, suppliers, and customers on a 24/7 basis no matter where they are physically located.

With its many features and unparalleled flexibility, pulseconference can be used for many applications, like business conferences to review annual or quarterly reports, strategy sessions, and budget planning. pulseconference includes a forum feature to allow conferencing between a group of individuals or authorities to discuss the issues at hand. This conference can then be broadcasted simultaneously to many other callers with listen-only rights. Additionally, pulseconference provides inbound conferencing for entertainment services like sports or teen chat and party lines.

Users can call into the pulseconference system from cell phones, traditional phones, trigger a call back from a web site, or over a VoIP line. Through a web interface, they can monitor their activities (mute, disconnect, etc). There is also an administrator (operator) feature for the conference call coordinator to view and control the proceedings and participants via a web display.

“As the telecommunications industry continues to grow, we need to expand our line of products,” said Jay Kunarathnam, director of product development at pulse. “Offering our clients cost-effective yet state-of-the-art products has gotten us to where we are today and will help pulse continue to succeed in the future.”

“I agree,” adds pulse’s director of marketing and sales, Mohan Markandaier. “The popularity of conferencing is growing and it is a valuable tool in today’s marketplace. Two of our largest teleservice clients (one in Venezuela and the other in London) have already successfully added the pulseconference software to their service profile.”

WIMBLEDON, London (PRWEB) August 24, 2006

A survey by Lightspeed Research, an online market research solutions provider, revealed that an overwhelming number of travelers felt that the recent suspected terrorist plot at Heathrow airport would not affect their travel plans.

The poll, which ran in 9 countries around the world, asked respondents to state how the recent suspected terrorist plot at London’s Heathrow airport would affect their travel plans.

In total 78% of the 35,586 respondents stated that it would have no effect on their plans to travel. While the majority felt it would have no effect, 15% stated that they would travel less for leisure, while 5% would cancel their travel plans altogether. Business travel seemed to be least affected with only a mere 1% of respondents stating they would travel less on business.

Italian respondents felt the most affected - with 21% stating they would travel less for leisure and 8% stating they would cancel all their upcoming travel plans.

The two countries’ travel plans that appear to be the least affected by the alerts are the Netherlands (92%) and the UK (88%).

The Poll was conducted in the US, Great Britain, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden and Australia among 35,586 respondents in August 2006.
