Famed founder, Alan Levy does it again.
Successfully taken an idea to disrupt the antiquated terrestrial radio business and made it a reality with BlogTalkRadio. Now, Levy is at it again with a game changing solution in a $10 billion market. Cinchcast Connect is a new platform which simplifies corporate conference calls and webcasts by providing more functionality to customers at half the cost.
Levy believed that by combining blogging and telecommunications, an interactive online platform for two-way conversations could be established. With a background in telecommunications, Levy came up with the idea of an Internet radio network that was accessible to anyone, as a host or a listener, with a phone. This idea was patented in January 2012, dating back to April 2007.
Cinchcast Connect gives enterprise customers more control over their event experience and event-related expenses. With the click of a button, clients are up and running with everything they need for their live or recorded event. The conference bridge, Q&A management console, slides, and online event stream; it’s all integrated into one robust, browser-based solution. There is no need for expensive operators, no unused line charges or hidden fees, and no hoops to jump through to launch an event. The process is simplified and puts the user in control, resulting in cost savings of up to 50%.

Destia’s May 1999 IPO was shortly followed in December 1999 by the sale of the company to Viatel in a transaction valued in excess of $1 billion. Prior to joining Destia, Alan, who is also a CPA, held the CFO, Managing Director of Europe and EVP Legal and Finance positions at Viatel.
