San Diego, California – June 6, 2006 –
a technology leader in real-time communications
software, today announced that Structural Group, a $210
million Hanover, Maryland-based company, replaced its
previous hardware-based video conferencing system with
e/pop Web Conferencing. Structural Group is comprised
of three diversified companies, Structural Preservation
Systems, VSL and Pullman Power, which deliver services,
products, systems and technologies that build, repair,
protect, strengthen and reinforce concrete, steel,
masonry, wood and soils. Structural Group companies’
utilize e/pop’s advanced multiparty video capabilities
for more effective and interactive upper management
meetings in offices located throughout the U.S and to
conduct interviews with potential employees regardless
of physical location.
According to Jason Kasch, IT
director, Structural Group, e/pop Web Conferencing was
chosen because the previous video conferencing system
provided limited functionality and was expensive. With
e/pop, the company intends to extend the reach of its
video conferencing capabilities to customers and
partners as well.
“Our previous video
conferencing system was slow, unreliable and not
entirely IP-based, which caused increased stress and
frustration for both meeting hosts and attendees,” said Kasch. “We chose e/pop because it met all of our needs,
including ease-of-use, low cost of ownership, easy
deployment and management, and it fits nicely with our
corporate culture of team involvement. Now, anyone in
the company or customers for that matter, are just a
mouse click away. And, e/pop is so easy to use that it
has become a self-service application that is available
to anyone regardless of how technical they are.”
e/pop Web Conferencing includes a comprehensive set of
features, including multiparty audio and video, desktop
and application sharing, remote control and a record &
playback feature which records the entire conference
session, including video, for editing and playback
“Video conferencing has significantly changed and
improved the way we conduct business,” said Brian
Gallagher, Marketing Director at Structural Group.
“e/pop has enabled us to interact on a more consistent
basis with our business line leaders throughout the
country. We are able to connect, have productive
and efficient meetings and, by using e/pop, we have also
saved a great deal of money.
