Powwownow was founded in 2004, offering customers low-cost conference calling facilities with the ethos of no booking, no billing, no fuss. (The customer does not need to book a conference room and never receives a bill from Powwownow. They only pay the cost of their own call, which is added to their standard telecoms bill.)
Powwownow is Europe's fastest growing free conference call provider and operates in 15 countries including the UK, US and major European markets.
In 2011, Powwownow was included in the Sunday Times Tech Track 100, the league table that ranks Britain’s 100 private tech companies with the fastest-growing sales over the last three years.
Powwownow and Audio-Cast are trading names of Via-Vox Limited, which is a UK incorporated company registered at Companies House (Company Number 04646978).
