ISC Telecom, Expanets Merger Completed


ISC Telecom of Oklahoma City has completed a merger into Expanets.

ISC, a provider of telecommunications products and services for businesses in Oklahoma, Colorado and Arkansas, will now be known as Expanets of Oklahoma Inc., said Glen Patterson, president of Expanets of Oklahoma.

Expanets was formed in February 1998 by NorthWestern Corp. of Berkley Heights, N.J. Expanets has annual revenues of $340 million and 40,000 customers in 32 states.

"Expanets offers us the ability to serve our customers with greater product and service offerings, and now with locations nationwide, we will be able to meet our customers' needs wherever they may be," said Patterson, who will remain as president of Expanets of Oklahoma.

Last week, James R. Walker, a 1967 graduate of Oklahoma State University, was named president and CEO of Expanets. Walker has had executive positions with Southwestern Bell Telephone, AT&T and Lucent Technologies.

Expanets of Oklahoma has 60 employees and offices in Oklahoma City, Tulsa and Denver.

Webcasting at Pre-Paid

Pre-Paid Legal Services on Monday announced a webcasting program to keep its more than 200,000 sales associates in the United States and Canada abreast of company news and information.

Through an agreement with Edmond-based webcasts.com, Ada-based Pre-Paid Legal has supplemented its current satellite-based communications to offer sales associates interactive information via the Internet.

"As the Internet continues to permeate every aspect of business, we recognize that interactive webcasting is a highly effective tool for communicating with our associates in the field and for reducing our communications costs," said Randy Harp, Pre-Paid's chief operating officer.

"We have partnered with webcasts.com because they understood our business needs and were able to add significant value to our current program."

Currently, Pre-Paid Legal associates subscribing to the enhanced Internet services can access the weekly webcast of Communication Show to gather the latest information on new sales incentives, special programs and other sales-oriented materials.

Through the relationship with.com, Pre-Paid Legal associates are able to view the webcast at their convenience because the content is archived on-demand for one week after the original webcast date. As the number of associates utilizing the webcasts increases, the company anticipates expanding its relationship with webcasts.com to include additional programming.

Going Hollywood

Lt. Gov. Mary Fallin and an Oklahoma delegation will wind up a three-day movie recruitment visit to Southern California today.

It is the fifth consecutive year a delegation from Oklahoma has visited Los Angeles to ask motion picture producers, directors, writers and location scouts to bring upcoming projects to Oklahoma, Fallin said.

The California mission had three components -- face-to-face meetings with studio executives, a reception for those with potential to bring business to Oklahoma and Locations 2000, an annual trade show sponsored by the Association of Film Commissioners International.

Fallin was to meet with studio executives from Warner Brothers, Walt Disney Pictures, 20th Century Fox and Dreamworks during the trip.
