Atlanta (Vocus) July 1, 2009
Cypress Communications® has garnered yet another award for product innovation, with Technology Marketing Corporation (TMC) naming C4 IP™ a 2008 Communications Solutions Product of the Year. C4 IP is a hosted unified communications solution that enables small-to-medium enterprises (SMEs) to connect, communicate, collaborate and continue™ working productively in the face of any situation.
The Communications Solutions Product of the Year Award recognizes the vision, leadership and groundbreaking achievements within the communications industry.
"Cypress Communications has been recognized with a 2008 Product of the Year Award for their excellence in the advancement of voice and data communications," said Rich Tehrani, TMC President and Group Editor-in-Chief, "Cypress 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."
Cypress personifies this innovation award by delivering and managing a comprehensive hosted VoIP and hosted unified communications solution, C4 IP. Capitalizing on a new hosted delivery paradigm, Cypress is able to deliver advanced communications options to companies whose size, budget, and technical expertise would normally prevent them from utilizing this productivity-enhancing technology.
In addition to easing the technological burden on the small to mid-sized enterprise (SMEs), C4 IP also brings with it increased flexibility and scalability. Cypress takes on the challenge of keeping up with the rapid evolution of communications technologies, bringing advances and new applications to SMEs faster than if they attempted it themselves. The solution can also be scaled up or down as the business changes without any additional investments in hardware or software.
In addition, Cypress has developed and deployed new functionality for C4 IP - including advanced automatic call distribution (ACD) capabilities and automatic failover options - increasing the solution's value without creating additional capital burdens on current or prospective users.
"C4 IP has been tremendously successful in the marketplace, and we are proud of all the recognition the solution has received," said Frank Grillo, executive vice president of marketing at Cypress Communications. "But even with 14 awards for product innovation, we are not complacent - we will continue to lead the industry through innovation, enhancing our current offerings and delivering additional products that can impact our customers' bottom line."
C4 IP is a hosted unified communications solution that comes complete with converged voice and data services; audio, video, and Web conferencing; and a powerful suite of collaboration tools to connect employees, such as chat, find-me/follow-me, desktop sharing and real-time presence. Delivered as a fully hosted solution, C4 IP enables SMEs to benefit from productivity-enhancing unified communication features - without capital expense - delivering substantial operational savings.
