LoopUp

LoopUp is a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) conferencing solution for remote enterprise meetings. We exist for two reasons: to make conference calls less painful and to make collaboration easy.

Conference calls and online meetings have been painful for a long time - we think too long! 'Who just joined?' 'Who's that speaking?' 'Who has all the background noise?' 'Can you see my screen yet?' These are just a few of the classic frustrations that have plagued conference calls and online meetings for the last 20 years that plague them still today.

LoopUp solves these problems in a simple and powerful way. A LoopUp invite is created in a couple of clicks, formatted with your meeting details. LoopUp alerts you when your first guest joins the meeting, calls out to your phone when you first guest joins the meeting, calls out to your phone when you wish to join, shows you who's on and who's speaking, and lets you share your screen with a click.

LoopUp sells direct to the enterprise market and via major distribution partners including Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise, BT, and Cable & Wireless Communications. LoopUp is delivered globally 24x7 from regional data centers and support teams in Europe, North America and Asia- Pacific.

Hannon Digital 

Hannon Digital was founded by Colm Hannon, an Irish technology entrepreneur in London with a background in elite sport and enterprise social media. In 2009 Colm founded The Digital Leaders Think Tank, an exclusive invitation-only round table think tank for global leaders in digital, marketing and communications. The DLTT members’ feedback to Colm was that they nearly all wanted to work with a digital company that could blend the capabilities of a social media agency with those of a full-service digital marketing agency and a digital communications consultancy: and from that advice Hannon Digital was born.

Today Hannon Digital is exactly what the Digital Leaders asked for; a one-stop shop for B2B digital marketing and communications advice, training and managed services. If you are a leader from a B2B company and you are serious about improving your digital marketing and communications in one of your teams or departments – or across your whole organisation – then get in touch today for a conversation with Colm or one of the team.

Turkish Airlines

At Turkish Airlines, we continue on our journey with the same excitement that started 82 years ago with just five aircraft. But now, as Turkey’s rising star, our fleet has expanded to 298 aircraft both passenger and cargo. Our growth figures have placed us among the world’s leading airlines. In 2013, we made the important decision to sign the order for the largest aircraft in Turkish Civil Aviation history. As a flag-carrier airline, we took this step with the aim of lowering the average age of our fleet and pushing the rising line on our service-quality graph even higher over the next few years. Taking into account the 212 narrow-body aircraft that are starting to filter into our fleet together with the aircraft whose lease period is almost over, our total fleet, including cargo aircraft, is expected to reach 421 by the end of 2020. We expect the current average age of our fleet, which is 6.9 years, to go down to 6 years with the addition of our new aircraft.
