Cypress Communications® announced today that Technology Marketing Corporation (TMC) has selected its hosted unified communications solution, C4 IP®, to receive the 2009 INTERNET TELEPHONY Excellence Award presented by INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine. C4 IP is a hosted VoIP and 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 INTERNET TELEPHONY Excellence Award honors companies who have developed IP communications products and services that give customers a true advantage. The extensive application process required Cypress to submit case studies of companies that have implemented C4 IP. With the positive impact of C4 IP verified by customers, TMC selected Cypress as a winner. Cypress' application featured two law firms who both increased productivity and collectively saved hundreds of thousands of dollars by avoiding upfront capital expenses and ongoing maintenance costs.
