LoopUp, Cable & Wireless Communications to Deliver Conferencing Solution to Caribbean Businesses

LoopUp, the business collaboration and remote meetings company, today announced its partnership with LIME, the Caribbean business of Cable & Wireless Communications. Under the terms of the partnership, LIME will distribute the LoopUp product as LIME Conferencing as part of a managed service agreement to business customers in its 14 countries of operation.

“We’re pleased to team up with LIME, our first partner in the region,” said Steve Flavell, co-CEO of LoopUp. “LoopUp stands out in the world of everyday conference calls. Following our September opening of LoopUp’s regional hub in Barbados, we’ve been actively seeking to partner and bring LoopUp to the corporate market within the Caribbean and surrounding areas including Panama and Trinidad.”

Eugene Nolan, LIME’s director of product and process, believes this partnership fits perfectly with his company’s commitment to delivering exceptional services to customers. “Our own team had already begun using LoopUp throughout the region and was benefiting from its better meeting experience, so naturally we wanted to partner with LoopUp and deliver the same service to our own customers,” he said.

LoopUp gives business professionals everyday conference calls that address the classic frustrations involved in remote meetings, such as not knowing who’s on the call, annoying background noise, and difficulty sharing a presentation. Call leaders can quickly send out call details then get an alert on their desktop or mobile when their first guest arrives, which takes them straight into LoopUp’s conference call app on their browser or mobile device to:

  • Know what’s happening on the call (who’s on and who’s speaking, and view their LinkedIn™ profile)
  • Join by having LoopUp call a phone of their choice (without needing to use dial-in numbers, access or pin codes)
  • Control the call: call leaders can add missing guests, mute background noise, record the call and share their screen without needing to launch another collaboration tool

LoopUp opened its Barbados office in September 2012. For more information, please visit http://loopup.com or, for regional inquiries, email Wayne Atwell via [email protected]

Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, whic...

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
