  LoopUp, Cable & Wireless Communications to Deliver Conferencing Solution to
  Caribbean Businesses

Business Wire

LONDON -- February 11, 2013

LoopUp, the business collaboration and remote meetings company, today
announced its partnership with LIME, the Caribbean business of Cable &
Wireless Communications. Under the terms of the partnership, LIME will
distribute the LoopUp product as LIME Conferencing as part of a managed
service agreement to business customers in its 14 countries of operation.

“We’re pleased to team up with LIME, our first partner in the region,” said
Steve Flavell, co-CEO of LoopUp. “LoopUp stands out in the world of everyday
conference calls. Following our September opening of LoopUp’s regional hub in
Barbados, we’ve been actively seeking to partner and bring LoopUp to the
corporate market within the Caribbean and surrounding areas including Panama
and Trinidad.”

Eugene Nolan, LIME’s director of product and process, believes this
partnership fits perfectly with his company’s commitment to delivering
exceptional services to customers. “Our own team had already begun using
LoopUp throughout the region and was benefiting from its better meeting
experience, so naturally we wanted to partner with LoopUp and deliver the same
service to our own customers,” he said.

LoopUp gives business professionals everyday conference calls that address the
classic frustrations involved in remote meetings, such as not knowing who’s on
the call, annoying background noise, and difficulty sharing a presentation.
Call leaders can quickly send out call details then get an alert on their
desktop or mobile when their first guest arrives, which takes them straight
into LoopUp’s conference call app on their browser or mobile device to:

  *Know what’s happening on the call (who’s on and who’s speaking, and view
    their LinkedIn™ profile)
  *Join by having LoopUp call a phone of their choice (without needing to use
    dial-in numbers, access or pin codes)
  *Control the call: call leaders can add missing guests, mute background
    noise, record the call and share their screen without needing to launch
    another collaboration tool

LoopUp opened its Barbados office in September 2012. For more information,
