Structural Group Chooses e/pop Web and Video Conferencing to
Connect Management and Personnel in Offices Throughout the U.S.

Award-winning specialty contractor replaces traditional video conferencing
hardware with e/pop® IP-based conferencing software

San Diego, California –  June 6, 2006 WiredRed®, 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 on-demand.

 “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.
