March 31, 2005 - Xpedite Systems today announced that the company will be known as Premiere Global Services (Data Communications) with effect from April 4, 2005.
Premiere Global Services Inc is a global outsourced provider of business communications services and business process solutions using email, SMS, voice and fax technologies. The company has adopted the name as a unified brand for Xpedite and Premiere Conferencing, brands previously under the parentage of Ptek Holdings, Inc.
"We believe the new name better communicates the companyâs mission of providing business communications services to enterprises," said Simon Bushell, General Manager, Premiere Global Services UK and Ireland. "The continuing convergence of voice and data has elevated the purchasing of communications services to a more central source in many customersâ IT departments. By marketing its full suite of collaboration and data communication solutions as a single brand, the company aims to take advantage of this trend to deliver additional services", he continued. "Customers are increasingly recognising Xpedite as a trusted provider for their business communication needs."
Changing the companyâs name marks an important milestone. Simon Bushell joined in his current position in October 2004 and has spearheaded developments in business strategy and success. Clients across virtually every business sector now exceed 1,000 in the UK and 40,000 worldwide.
