PanTerra Networks Transforms Unified Communications Industry

New Generation Software-as-a-Service ("SaaS") Unified Communications Solution Delivers Dramatic Productivity and Economic Advantages to the SMB Market

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwire - October 1, 2007) - PanTerra Networks (www.panterranetworks.com), a leading provider of on-demand unified communications services for small and medium sized businesses, today announced the availability of Worksmart™, a new generation Software-as-a-Service ("SaaS") unified communications solution.

Worksmart is built on PanTerra's comprehensive future-proof SaaS technology platform that delivers an integrated suite of services including voice, secure instant messaging, web collaboration, multimedia conferencing, remote desktop sharing and enhanced mobility services. PanTerra's unified communications solution completely transforms the way communications services are delivered today.

"We are re-defining how on-demand communications services are delivered to the SMB market," said Arthur Chang, PanTerra's CEO. "Traditionally, companies have had to deal with many different vendors providing individually "silo-ed" communications services. This results in significantly higher Total Cost of Operations (TCO), increased complexity in administration and support of the services and lower productivity due to service incompatibilities. PanTerra's Worksmart unified communications solution eliminates these drawbacks while delivering maximum flexibility and functionality in an on-demand manner. Finally, the Network is the Service!"

PanTerra Networks has developed Worksmart to seamlessly integrate multiple communications services while combining common functions like provisioning, presence, administration, contact management, support and billing. A standard set of interfaces allow additional value-added SaaS applications to easily be developed and "snapped" into the Worksmart platform while maintaining all the common interfaces. PanTerra intends to deliver additional SaaS applications focused on specific solutions such as Salesforce automation, enhanced mobility, and financial services. This is the power of Worksmart.

With Worksmart, small and medium sized businesses are able to eliminate costly on-premise hardware or separately siloed hosted software, significantly reduce capital expenses, installation and maintenance costs. Small and medium sized businesses are able to start with just the services and features they need and scale and adapt as their businesses grow. In addition, Worksmart allows fast and easy integration with many third party business productivity applications.
