We are thrilled our C4 IP unified communications service continues to win awards, and thank TMC for their recognition

Cypress Communications® announced today that Technology Marketing Corporation (TMC®), a global, integrated marketing company, has named the company’s hosted unified communications solution, C4 IP®, as a recipient of its 2010 Unified Communications Excellence Award.

This is Cypress’ 31st award for excellence and product innovation.

“We are thrilled our C4 IP unified communications service continues to win awards, and thank TMC for their recognition,” said Frank Grillo, executive vice president of implementation, support and marketing at Cypress.

“Unified communications is truly helping people be more productive in their communications,” he continued. “People instinctively recognize that different communications methods are best for different purposes. Sometimes an IM or an email is best and for other communications only a phone call will do. And tying them together in an easy-to-use platform creates great efficiency. With C4 IP, we bring these benefits to small-to-medium businesses.”

C4 IP is a hosted unified communications solution that enables small-to-medium enterprises (SMEs) to connect, communicate, collaborate and continue®. C4 IP delivers voice and data services and a powerful suite of collaboration tools that include Microsoft® Outlook integration, unified messaging, real-time presence, file and desktop sharing, chat, and audio, video, and web conferencing.

Cypress manages the solution from its expansive IP network down to the phone on each user’s desk. There’s no equipment to by, so firms can implement the solution with no upfront capital investment. C4 IP users get everything—from Cypress’ expertise to all the equipment they need—for a single monthly cost. And with C4 IP’s scalability, customers only pay for what they need and can scale services as business needs change.

“Cypress Communications has proven its commitment to excellence while providing solutions in the UC marketplace. We are pleased to grant a 2010 Unified Communications Excellence Award to C4 IP,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “Congratulations to Cypress on receiving this award and we look forward to future innovations.”

Unified Communications Excellence Award winners are published in the October 2010 issue of Unified Communications magazine, Unified Communications magazine is devoted to educating readers on employing unified communications (UC) solutions.
