Primerica Goes Global with Just-in-Time Resources

Just-in-Time Resources Makes Global Communication Easy!

DULUTH, Ga., June 20 /PRNewswire/ -- When John Addison, co-CEO of Primerica and Glenn Williams, President, want to coordinate, motivate and communicate with the company's 100,000+ representatives, they use Just-in-Time Resources' communications platform, the JET. "The JET lets me reach our representatives when I need to," said Addison. "This is an awesome piece of technology." As leaders in the largest financial services marketing organization in North America, Addison and Williams needed regular, private, secure communication with Primerica's agents. As the company expanded globally that need was increasing, as was the complexity of the solutions. Then they found the Just-in-time Enterprise Transporter (JET), a multimedia distribution solution developed by Just-in-Time Resources (JiTR) of Calgary, Alberta. "We used to use satellite feeds, and we shipped videos and DVD's," said Williams. "Today, it's the Internet that has the broadest reach, and the JET's really easy to use. What is most valuable to the field is that they can now access communications as they need it and whenever is convenient for them."

The JET is a secure, private, scalable internet-based communications platform that gives Primerica greater reach, increased flexibility and much lower costs than their old satellite technology or conference calls. "Primerica is in the business of changing lives," said Williams, "and this technology will help us do that. It's much more flexible and also reduces expenses." Using the JET, live broadcasts are now delivered and distributed over the Internet from Primerica's studios, EPN-TV. Head office receives detailed reports, and can track who has accessed what content. This aids in future planning and coordination.

Primerica representatives will truly benefit from the new JET. They access archives on-demand and through DVD-quality, multi-format downloads. Archives are fully documented and indexed so agents can search for topics by keyword and access the video content directly. They can watch broadcasts when it's convenient, and access the content they need to see, regardless of location and time zone. Agents can burn CD's or DVD's, or they can transfer content to portable mp3 or video players and take them on the road. The JET has brought them increased freedom, flexibility and a significant reduction in their monthly expenses.

Primerica wanted to make broadcasts more accessible; JiTR enabled live, on-demand and archival access. Primerica wanted to lower costs; JiTR is saving them thousands of dollars previously spent each month on distribution. Primerica wanted an easy to administer solution; the JET is a centrally administered tool, new subscribers can be given access in minutes. Primerica wanted an easy to use solution; the JET looks like a simple website, if you can open a browser, you can use a JET. The JET takes the complexity out of globally distributed video and multimedia communications.
