New China on-demand digital conferencing deal

Professionals in China will have greater access to on-demand audio and web conferencing, thanks to a new arrangement between two prominent communications organisations.

The agreement -- to launch new conferencing and collaboration solutions into China -- has been announced by Premiere Global Services, a global provider of business process improvement solutions and communication solutions organization China Enterprise Netcom Corporation Limited (China Entercom).

According to the announcement, the agreement will give Chinese customers 'more access to high quality, on-demand, competitive reservationless event and Web conferencing services'.

China Entercom, which already provides a wide range of telecom services and IT solutions to enterprises throughout the region, will market Premiere Global's full-featured, international conferencing and collaboration applications -- including audio, event and Web conferencing -- to their China-based customers. Premiere Global will provide technical service and support.
