Premiere Global Communications Operating System Empowers Rogers Wireless Subscribers with New Mobile Conferencing Technology

    Premiere Global's ConferenceAnywhere Application Brings Industry-Leading
Conferencing Capabilities to the Handheld

    ATLANTA, October 15 /CNW/ - Premiere Global Services, Inc. (NYSE:  PGI), a
global provider of on-demand business process improvement solutions, today
announced it has entered into a strategic alliance with Rogers Wireless, the
wireless voice, data and messaging division of Canada's leading communications
and media company, Rogers Communications, Inc. (TSX:RCI) (NYSE:  RCI). As part
of the agreement, Rogers Wireless has utilized Premiere Global's open
standards APIs to integrate the mobile business application,
ConferenceAnywhere, directly from the Premiere Global Communications Operating
System (PGiCOS) into its wireless offerings, enabling Rogers' subscribers to
easily host and control an audio conference call from their BlackBerry(R) or
other handheld device.

    Premiere Global's proprietary ConferenceAnywhere technology provides
Rogers Wireless subscribers with a market leading personal and secure
conferencing service for up to 15 simultaneous participants. The
ConferenceAnywhere application, which can be accessed and activated directly
from a subscriber's handheld device, provides advanced conferencing features
within the existing mobile device menu. These features include "two-click"
initiation of a multi-party conference call, as well as the ability to easily
invite additional participants to join the call, direct dial-out to
participants, call locking functionality for added security, call recording
for later playback, and many more.

    The service is available for Rogers Wireless's seven million subscribers,
and charges are incurred on a subscriber's current monthly wireless bill.
Rogers customers may sign up for ConferenceAnywhere through their DoMore
mobile business application portal.

    "With an estimated 16 billion conferencing minutes connecting through
mobile phones in 2007, mobile conferencing presents a significant channel
opportunity for conferencing providers. This partnership between Rogers
Wireless and Premiere Global is just the beginning of a whole new suite of
collaboration services catering to the remote and mobile worker," said Marc
Beattie, Senior Analyst, Wainhouse Research. "Initiating or participating in a
conference call from a mobile handset has always been a challenge, however by
embedding Premiere Global's application directly into their handheld device
and wireless bill, Rogers Wireless subscribers now have a simple to use and
effective mobile audio conferencing capability."

    "Nearly one in four participants joins a conference call from a mobile
device. We are excited to make this process easier and more effective for the
millions of Rogers Wireless subscribers," said Boland T. Jones, Founder,
Chairman and CEO of Premiere Global Services, Inc. "Enabling Rogers Wireless
subscribers to access and download the ConferenceAnywhere application is a
great example of how partners can utilize our open standards APIs to develop
new applications that leverage our extensive communication technologies
capabilities and the power of the Premiere Global Communications Operating
