Ryobi Die Casting Chooses e/pop Web and
Video Conferencing for Online Meetings

Real-time collaboration provided by e/pop key to decreasing
business travel and speed time-to-market for Ryobi products


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 industry.

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.”
