SAN JOSE, CALIF. (June 1, 2009) – VirtualPBX and The Oya Group announced today that the Virtual PBX website has been honored with two prestigious ADDY® awards in recognition of its high-quality design, unique approach and ease of use. The awards were given in the business-to-business category at the regional Northern California and local Silicon Valley competitions.

The ADDY Awards are presented by the American Advertising Federation (AAF), and are the world’s toughest advertising competition. The ADDY® Awards represent the true spirit of creative excellence by recognizing all forms of advertising from media of all types, and, especially in the Silicon Valley, home to some of the best B2B advertising in the world.

“We are extremely honored to be recognized as an ADDY award recipient at both the local and regional level,” said Karen Hebert, CEO of The Oya Group. “Our collaborative work with Virtual PBX illustrates our dedication to our customers. We’re very pleased with the re-design of the Virtual PBX website, as this particular project allowed our team to have creative and strategic freedom to push our design process.”

When Virtual PBX brought The OYA Group on-board, the company wanted a complete re-design of the look-and-feel of the website while enhancing usability, increasing sales conversions, and maintaining search compliance. The ideal design would integrate Virtual PBX’s status as the inventor of virtual PBX services and industry innovation leader with a strong customer service commitment. Since launching the new Web site in November of 2008, Virtual PBX has seen an increase in Web traffic and a significant boost in online sign-ups.

“The Oya Group did an incredible job of guiding us through the design process to create a Web site that stands above any of our competition,” said Greg Brashier, chief operations officer for Virtual PBX. “Our new Web site draws in users and is an integral part of our successful business model.”
