HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (PRWEB) September 19, 2011
Digium®, Inc., the Asterisk® Company, today announced it has been included by Gartner, Inc., in the “Magic Quadrant for Unified Communications” report.* The report notes, “in 2011, unified communications portfolios have begun to mature with the emergence of integrated UC suites. This represents a shift from the previous years, when broad communication portfolios were not seamlessly integrated. Leaders maintain their positions, although challengers are emerging.” Digium is positioned as a “Niche” player.
“We’re proud that our UC family of Switchvox solutions has been recognized by Gartner,” said Danny Windham, CEO of Digium. “We’ve created a product that offers the functionality of expensive UC solutions, but at a price that smaller businesses can afford. As we continue to advance our Switchvox business phone systems, we know their appeal will continue to grow.”
