San Diego, California – August 22, 2006 – WiredRed®, a
technology leader in real-time communications software,
today announced that Ryobi Die Casting, one of the four
companies owned by Ryobi Limited in Japan, has chosen
and deployed e/pop® Web Conferencing for more efficient
sales and marketing meetings, and to communicate more
interactively with customers and its parent company in
Japan. Ryobi Die Casting U.S., based in Shelbyville,
Indiana, is a world-leading die casting manufacturer
that supplies products to various industries, including
cylinder blocks and transmission cases to the automobile
Ryobi found out the benefits of web and video
conferencing first hand after utilizing it on an as
needed basis from a leading service provider. However,
the company decided it was more cost-efficient to own
and manage the use of its web and video communications
in order to further reduce business travel required by
the sales, marketing and engineering departments.
“We are very impressed with just how easy WiredRed’s
e/pop is from an end-user perspective and I am also
extremely pleased that it was so simple to install and
deploy,” said William Baker, IS/NT Group Manager for
Ryobi Die Casting. “Anyone in the company can use e/pop
regardless of their technical expertise. Sharing
documents is as simple as a couple of mouse clicks.”
The Production Quality Engineers (PQE) at Ryobi Die
Casting will utilize e/pop to meet online with customers
located all over the world to discuss and edit design
plans, and with the use of high quality web cameras, the
engineers will be able to troubleshoot die cast part
design issues remotely – a task that previously required
an on-site visit.
Because e/pop requires only a standard PC with a
high-speed Internet connection, Ryobi Die Casting U.S.
in Indiana can also meet “on-the-fly” with the Ryobi
headquarters in Japan from anywhere and at anytime.
“So far, our sales and marketing teams have started
using e/pop for meetings and customer presentations,”
added Baker. “We plan to roll the system out to
engineering, including our Product Quality Engineers and
other departments before this fall.”
