TelePost, Inc., the premier provider of web-based communication
and collaboration solutions, and OmniSky (Nasdaq:OMNY), the award-winning provider of branded wireless Internet and e-mail services for users of handheld devices, today announced an agreement that makes it possible to initiate and arrange wireless teleconferencing from OmniSky-enabled handheld devices. Under the terms of the agreement, the TelePost wireless Conference Center, a self-administered conference-calling service, is available for subscription on any OmniSky-enabled wireless PDA.
"Our partnership with OmniSky is a further extension of our desire to partner with the very best in the wireless services world in order to provide mobile users with the power of web-controlled, regular phone-based conference services," said Frank Teruel, TelePost's Executive Vice President. "OmniSky subscribers are mobile professionals who will benefit immediately from the power of self-administered conferencing from the wireless handheld device of their choice. We are delighted to be teaming up with OmniSky."
TelePost is the first enterprise teleconferencing solution to integrate the core interactive business tools used by mobile professionals -- web-enabled handheld devices with wireless and wire-line phones. Using the OmniSky service, wireless PDA users can now initiate and control multi-participant calls with the TelePost Conference Center. The extension of the TelePost Conference Center onto wireless platforms allows mobile professionals to use a single TelePost account from their OmniSky-enabled handheld device, and conduct instant conference calls at savings up to 50 percent off the cost of traditional conference call carriers.
"By partnering with TelePost, OmniSky is able to offer our customers another dimension in mobile collaboration from their handheld devices," said Kristine Stebbins, OmniSky's Vice President of Marketing. "Our subscribers will benefit from the ability to use TelePost's powerful web-based conferencing functionality from their OmniSky-enabled PDAs. OmniSky continues to offer mobile professionals improved services that extend the Internet in ways that make sense for them and increase their productivity."
The Telepost Conference Center lets you conduct on-demand conference calls any time of day. No operator, no reservations, no planning ahead. All you need is your OmniSky service and your mobile phone to initiate a conference call. Simply set up a TelePost account online, upload your contact lists to the TelePost site, and you're ready to initiate a multi-party conference call. To arrange a call, simply tap on the names of your friends and colleagues, and they're immediately bridged into a conference call -- premium-quality teleconferencing at up to 50 percent savings over the cost of major carriers.
The TelePost wireless Conference Center gives OmniSky users the flexibility to connect up to seven interactive participants to a conference call. The application also allows OmniSky mobile professionals to manage and monitor the call by adding, muting, holding or disconnecting individual lines to a conference call dynamically with a touch of the PDA screen, without disrupting a conference call. The TelePost Conference Center is available immediately at a monthly subscription rate of $19.95 and $.25/per minute/per participant.
