Technology Marketing Corporation’s (TMC®) Unified Communications magazine has named Cypress Communications® as a recipient of the 2008 Unified Communications Excellence Award for Cypress’ hosted unified communications solution, C4 IP™. As an enterprise-class hosted VoIP and hosted unified communications solution, C4 IP made its mark on the communications industry in 2008, garnering a total of 9 awards for product innovation.

“For Cypress, 2008 was a year of many achievements, and we are honored to receive the Unified Communications Excellence Award from TMC’s Unified Communications magazine,” said Frank Grillo, executive vice president of marketing at Cypress Communications. “This award again confirms what we at Cypress have always believed—that C4 IP is a transformative solution that can make a real difference for small-to-medium enterprises (SMEs). And in an economy where SME budgets and personnel resources are stretched thin, we look forward to helping them boost productivity and conserve cash in 2009.”

C4 IP features productivity-enhancing tools such as Microsoft® Outlook integration, real-time presence, audio and Web conferencing, mobility features and support for remote locations and remote workers. Because C4 IP is a fully hosted solution, there’s no upfront capital investment in hardware or software, no ongoing maintenance costs, and no need for companies to hire and train additional IT staff to manage the solution. Cypress hosts and manages everything from the network to the phone on each desk, so SMEs can reallocate their resources—both budget and staff—to other projects that can bolster their bottom lines.

“Cypress Communications has proven they are committed to quality and excellence while addressing real needs in the marketplace. Unified Communications is pleased to grant a 2008 Unified Communications Excellence Award to their C4 IP hosted unified communications solution,” said Rich Tehrani, TMC President and Editor-in-Chief of Unified Communications magazine. “We’re proud to honor their hard work and accomplishments and look forward to more innovative solutions from Cypress in the future.”

A full list of Unified Communications Excellence Award winners are published in the November/December, 2008 issue of Unified Communications magazine,
