Arkadin Adds ON24 Webcast Elite for Self-Service Webcasts to its Portfolio

July 16th, 2014

Providing Customers with a Complete Range of Webcasting Solutions

ATLANTA – July 16, 2014 – Arkadin announced today the launch of Webcast Elite Provided by Arkadin. With Webcast Elite, business professionals can create, publish and analyze high quality audio and video webcasts in a convenient SaaS environment. The new self-service on-demand solution complements Arkadin’s traditional full-service Webcast solution for larger more complex events. Arkadin is now equipped to handle the webcasting needs of any size business – whether they need a full managed solution with a professionally trained event services team or a simple solution for creating webcasts right from desktops. ON24 is a global leader in cloud-based solutions for webcasting and virtual communications.

“The addition of Webcast Elite to our fully managed webcast offer gives our customers the full spectrum of webcast technology from the market leader,” says Damien Bayle, Arkadin’s Managing Director of Events Business Line. “We’re confident the new Elite self-service solution, coupled with our traditional highly personalized managed-service approach, will be a game changer in making webcast technology available to a much larger segment of business users.”

Webcast Elite is an ideal solution for organizations and professionals with a do-it-yourself approach to technology. Through its simple step-by-step process and support of 12 different languages, non-technical staff can deliver high-quality multi-media broadcasts quickly and efficiently directly from their computers without any training. Applications span sales and marketing campaigns, corporate communications events, training and eLearning initiatives as well as Human Resource programs such as recruitment and new employee induction activities.

The powerful self-service platform is especially relevant for professionals who use the less flexible web conferencing and webinar tools for presentations. The more robust webcast technology takes these online presentations to a higher level through interactive technologies. Audio and video are streamed and played directly from computers or any connected device participants choose to use, including mobile phones and tablets.

Business Benefits:

  • Efficient audience targeting to global audience or specific vertical groups on a regional or worldwide basis
  • Analytics for real-time ROI measurement via an ‘Engagement Score’ that measures attendee participation through surveys, live Q&A and polling features
  • Customizable branding options for promoting corporate identity
  • On-demand viewing in one click or live presentations for up to 1,000 viewers
  • Social media engagement through live interaction with Twitter and Facebook
  • Arkadin Webcast for Value-Added Full-Service Webcasts

For organizations that require dedicated support for more complex webcasts, Arkadin’s specially trained events services team provides a full turn-key solution with Arkadin Webcast. Clients are supported at every stage for producing rich, multi-media experiences that can be broadcast to thousands of participants worldwide. Services include strategic planning to ensure clients have the most appropriate package, fully customized registration and landing pages, invitations, speaker training, event marketing and post-event analytics.
