SAN JOSE, CALIF. (June 17, 2008) – VirtualPBX, inventor and leading supplier of hosted PBX services, today announced that Technology Marketing Corporation’s (TMC) Communications Solutions has named the Virtual PBX Service as a recipient of a 2007 Product of the Year Award.

Virtual PBX provides businesses with a hosted phone service that can quickly and inexpensively establish a sophisticated phone system that integrates remote employees under one or more main business numbers, regardless of where they take calls – at headquarters, branch offices, home offices, or on the road. Because Virtual PBX is hosted, there’s no need to purchase expensive equipment or technology.

In December of 2007, Virtual PBX released its new VPBX SmartID™ an all-new, next generation Caller ID service, and the VPBX Recording Manager™, which allows easy recording, upload, and management of a full library of Auto-Attendant greetings for every client.

The VPBX SmartID™ feature adds customizable digital displays and verbal information about the purpose and nature of each call. Business professionals can easily see and hear when an incoming call is a business call rather than a personal call, find out what business it is for, and know what function inside the business has been dialed, such as sales, support, or customer service.

The VPBX Recording Manager feature helps Virtual PBX customers maintain and manage a library of automated greetings used to answer incoming phone calls. Using VPBX Recording Manager, the company’s customers can easily add new greetings to their systems, assign separate greetings to different business numbers, and change the greeting manually or automatically.

“Virtual PBX is proud to be recognized with this award for its dedication and hard work in developing such a unique and innovative product for the communications industry,” said Greg Brashier, COO of Virtual PBX. “This recognition serves as a proof-point that we provide small businesses and corporations with the most complete hosted PBX service available in the market.”

“Virtual PBX has been recognized with a 2007 Product of the Year Award for their excellence in the advancement of voice, data and/or video communications,” said Rich Tehrani, TMC President and Group Editor-in-Chief of Communications Solutions, “Virtual PBX has proven they are committed to quality and excellence in solutions that benefit the customer experience as well as ROI for the companies that use them. I am pleased to honor their hard work and accomplishments and look forward to more innovative solutions from them in the future.”

The eighth annual Communications Solutions Product of the Year Award recognizes the vision, leadership and attention to detail that are the hallmarks of the prestigious award. The most innovative products and services brought to market in 2007 were selected as recipients of this year’s Communications Solutions Product of the Year Award for their groundbreaking achievement.
