Fonality’s PBXtra Wins PC Magazine Editors’ Choice Honor over Digium and
Other SMB Phone Systems

Award Recognizes Fonality for Ease of Use and Hybrid Hosted Architecture

LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE) August 9, 2007 -- Fonality®, the leading maker of phone systems for small and medium-sized business, announced today that its award-winning PBXtraTM IP-PBX was named Editors’ Choice by PC Magazine in a roundup against competing open and closed source phone systems of similar price. PBXtra is a VoIP-capable phone system designed to be purchased, installed and managed by non-technical professionals. More than 2,000 companies with 45,000 phones in 37 countries have adopted PBXtra and placed more than 75 million VoIP and traditional calls.

PC Magazine praised PBXtra for its ease of use over competing products such as TalkSwitch’s  244vs and Digium’s Asterisk Appliance. According to the review, “Fonality’s PBXtra Standard, a PBX solution with all the basic features that a small or medium-size business needs, offers a number of unique features that simplify management, and a well-designed Web interface elegantly ties its many features together.” Of all of the products reviewed, PBXtra earned the highest rating.

“A PC Magazine Editors’ Choice is about as good as it gets when it comes to reviews,” said Fonality CEO Chris Lyman. “PC Magazine took special note of our patented hybrid-hosted architecture which is what has allowed us to gain such rapid direct adoption into the SMB.”

Fonality’s PBXtra business phone system delivers more functionality with significantly improved ease-of-use at 40 to 80 percent less than the cost of comparable systems from larger companies. Out of the box, PBXtra supports advanced auto-attendant features, telecommuters, branch offices, drag and drop call controls, conferencing and cross-office intercoms, as well as a host of other easy-to-use advanced features. Fonality and its partners provide 24/7 technical support and a patent-pending hybrid-hosted architecture ensures reliability by allowing real-time monitoring and remote system management.
