I am thrilled to announce today that PGi has acquired TalkPoint, an industry leader in self-service and managed webcasting software and services. This acquisition brings market-leading and award-winning webcasting SaaS solutions to the PGi portfolio of purpose-built collaboration products, empowering businesses with tools for any meeting of any size, anywhere in the world.
Founded in 1997, TalkPoint’s cloud-based Convey™ platform provides self-service and fully managed audio and video webcasting for events with up to 10,000 attendees. The best-in-class technology works with a user’s existing telephone, webcam, video conferencing room or video encoder, with no special hardware required. TalkPoint webcasts also work directly through the standard browser on any desktop, tablet or mobile device. No downloads required.
This acquisition furthers our commitment to our SaaS portfolio and growth, and provides PGi entry into the increasingly important and burgeoning webcasting and web events market.
But I’ve also found a fellow innovator in TalkPoint CEO Nick Balletta, a professional that’s as committed as I am to providing user-friendly, frictionless collaboration experiences that drive business growth. It’s no surprise that under Nick and his leadership team’s guidance that TalkPoint has become a key player in the webcasting space with an impressive list of customers. I couldn’t be happier for Nick to be joining the PGi team, and for all of TalkPoint’s technology, events and customer service expertise to be integrated into PGi’s collaborative advantage.
With PGi’s global network and support infrastructure, we can bring the power of the Convey platform to businesses across the globe while enhancing PGi’s portfolio of collaboration solutions.
And, more importantly, this acquisition furthers our overall mission of providing collaboration solutions to the world for the shaping and advancement of ideas.
We are all excited to welcome TalkPoint to the PGi family.
