iotum creates and sells innovative web based conference calling services. We
own and operate a conference bridge, and are the creators of an unique
conference call management application called Calliflower which is
delivered to customers via our web site and social networks such as
Facebook. We sell direct, through affiliate networks, and via white
label deals. We partner with carriers and share termination revenues
for calls delivered to us.
Competitors are largely companies marketing individual features such as desktop sharing/meeting invites (i.e Webex, Microsoft LiveMeeting) and free conference calling services such as FreeConferenceCall.com or traditional conferencing services such as those offered by incumbent carriers. Web-based startups such as Rondee.com are striving to provide similar services to Calliflower.
Conference calling hasn't changed significantly in 30 years. It's expensive and painful. Calliflower is a unique, patent pending service, with a disruptive zero-configuration friction-free adoption model.
