February 11, 2009

CHICAGO and LONDON, Feb. 11 /PRNewswire/ — InterCall, the world’s largest
conferencing and collaboration services provider, and Huddle.net today
announced a global partnership that delivers the world’s first unified
collaboration, communication and social networking platform for the
enterprise. Through the partnership, InterCall customers can access Huddle’s
features — from secure online work spaces to project management tools — from
their conferences for more effective and boundary-less working practices.

“Through this partnership with Huddle, our customers around the world will
benefit from an experience that takes collaboration to the next level,” said

Scott Etzler, InterCall’s president. “Many of our customers are already
familiar with Huddle from LinkedIn and Facebook, so we’re excited to extend
that experience to conferencing so they can be even more productive.”

The new relationship means that InterCall conferencing customers can
schedule phone and web meetings in Huddle and share dial-in details, documents
and meeting minutes. In addition, they will benefit from Huddle’s full range
of project management and collaboration tools including discussions,
whiteboards, tasks and document versioning and audit trail.

“Huddle offered by InterCall is a true differentiator in a marketplace for
both companies and realises our vision of end-to-end collaboration and social
networking for business, in one place. Our partnership means that the users
across the globe can now take advantage of Huddle and work together better,
online or during live conferencing, regardless of their size or budget,” said

Alastair Mitchell, co-founder and CEO, Huddle.net

Huddle, which can be quickly rolled-out online to teams, features secure,
VPN-like access from any computer. By using its customizable workspaces,
customers can by-pass email, avoid FTP servers and eliminate USBs and CDs.
It also offers a unique RSS feature that keeps teams on track with up-dates
and deadlines. Huddle features tailored training programs and
award-winning-customer support.

Under the terms of the deal, InterCall will be reselling Huddle globally
and giving each of its customers a free Huddle account. Similarly, Huddle’s
enterprise customers will be able to take advantage of InterCall’s
conferencing services.
