Zultys Expands Canadian Presence Through Partnership With babyTEL

SUNNYVALE, CA--(CCNMatthews - May 23, 2006) -

New Relationship Gives SMBs High Quality VoIP Solutions and Services That Increase Flexibility and Productivity While Reducing Costs

Zultys Technologies, the leading manufacturer of communications equipment for businesses and enterprises, has announced it has accredited babyTEL, a leading provider of unified communications solutions, as a preferred Internet Telephony Service Provider (ITSP) for Canada.

babyTEL is making strong headway among Canadian small and medium businesses (SMBs) because they offer flat rate long distance in Canada and the U.S., a rich set of features, and free site-to-site calling. babyTEL can also offer its customers service extensions, so that users can be reached via a single number, whether in the central office, working in a remote office, or on the road. The collaboration between Zultys and babyTEL gives both companies the ability to engage channel partners who can now provide Canadian businesses with a complete end-to-end high quality VoIP solution.

"Small and mid-size businesses are now better able to compete with larger organizations because they receive all the telephony capabilities associated with the larger corporation, and their communications investments are more effectively aligned with their business demands," said Stephen Dorsey, president and CEO of babyTEL. "Zultys is a premier IP telephony vendor and we are extremely pleased to partner with them. This announcement marks an important catalyst to moving Canadian businesses to VoIP and enabling them to take immediate advantage of the cost savings, benefits, and improved productivity it can provide."

Iain Milnes, president of Zultys Technologies, said that VoIP adoption in Canada is exceeding expectations, particularly among the SMB segment of the market. "Canada presents a tremendous growth opportunity for Zultys and is a key part of our global business," Milnes explained. "We are already serving a number of multinational corporations with their headquarters in Canada. We are committed to the market, as demonstrated in the fact that our system already supports the French language. In addition, our alliance with babyTEL creates a unique opportunity to offer exemplary products and services in Canada."

Zultys is also growing its staff in the region with the appointment of Dan Pirro as country manager for Canada. Pirro will support the company's local expansion through strategic partnerships and channel management. Pirro secured the company's partnership with babyTEL, giving Canadian resellers the ability to provide their customers with a more complete VoIP solution. SMB customers will benefit from VoIP hardware and services that will work together and that can be delivered and implemented faster and more easily.

"Today's announcement marks an important milestone in delivering complete, high-quality VoIP solutions to SMBs across Canada," said Pirro. "Through our partnership with babyTEL, businesses across Canada can now combine the productivity enhancing features of our products with babyTEL's cost-effective calling plans. This is a powerful offering for any progressive SMB looking to gain a competitive edge while reducing operating costs."

Zultys is building on its strong momentum in North America with increasing growth in key Canadian markets. The company continues to add certified channel partners to meet the growing demand for its product line, which offers a distinct advantage to solution providers because of its SIP-based scalable platform and intuitive GUI-based management interface.
