Pioneering ThinkingSuite software platform recognized for Unified Communications leadership and innovation.

Thinking Phone Networks, the smart choice in cloud unified communications, today announced that global integrated media company Technology Marketing Corporation (TMC) has named its pioneering ThinkingSuite software platform as the INTERNET TELEPHONY Unified Communications Product of the Year. This marks the third year in a row that Thinking Phone Networks has received the award.

“It is with pleasure that we recognize Thinking Phone Networks with a Product of the Year Award. The editors of INTERNET TELEPHONY have verified that the first-of-its–kind ThinkingSuite cloud UC platform continues to display quality and innovation while providing solutions to real business communications challenges,” stated Rich Tehrani, CEO of TMC. “I congratulate the team at Thinking Phone Networks for their commitment to advancing IP communications technologies.”

According to industry analysts, cloud unified communications (UCaaS), combined with the explosion of the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) movement, represent disruptive forces as corporate enterprises seek to replace legacy premises-based systems and align disparate technology applications to enhance collaboration among increasingly distributed and mobile workforces.

Thinking Phone Networks is uniquely positioned to help such midsized and larger companies capitalize on these game-changing market dynamics by offering deeply integrated and analytics-driven single platform collaboration capabilities spanning mobility (including smartphone and tablet support), voice, video, presence, messaging, conferencing, and contact center.

According to Steve Kokinos, president and CEO, 2012 was a banner year for Thinking Phone Networks with significant growth and industry leadership recognition. In the last 12 months, the company’s enterprise user base doubled, its cloud channel partner roster grew by more than 100 percent, and employee headcount also doubled. Additionally, Kokinos said, Thinking Phone Networks is actively recruiting additional team members for both its Cambridge headquarters and its research and development facilities just outside of Ottawa, Ontario.

“Winning TMC's prestigious Product of the Year award rounds out a sensational year for us," said Kokinos. “It comes on the heels of being named both a 2012 UCaaS Magic Quadrant ‘Leader’ by Gartner, Inc. as well as recognition by Channel Partners magazine as offering one of the top channel programs in the industry. Such awards recognize the efforts everyone in our company is making to deliver cloud communications solutions that enhance enterprise collaboration, streamline business processes, and lower costs.”

Thinking Phone Networks’ Unified Communications Product of the Year Award will be featured in the January/February 2013 issue of INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine.
