AltiGen Launches iFusion SmartStations in Australia and New Zealand With Express Online

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA--(Marketwire - May 16, 2012) - AltiGen Communications, Inc. (OTCQX: ATGN) (PINKSHEETS: ATGN), a leading provider of integrated Unified Communications solutions, has appointed Express Online as its distribution partner for the iFusion SmartStations in Australia and New Zealand.

Express Online is a leading Australian distributor of IT solutions for both the consumer electronics retailer and B2B reseller channels.

As the industry's first Apple Made for iPhone communications docking station, the iFusion is well positioned for the growing small office/home office (SOHO) and small-to-medium-sized enterprises (SME) segment of the market which uses the iPhone as a primary communications device.

The iFusion is compatible with the iPhone 3G, 3GS, 4, 4S and iPod touch -- offering the following key features:

  • Hands free talking with a business-grade speakerphone designed specifically for the iPhone
  • Video calling using apps such as FaceTime or Skype
  • Keeps the iPhone fully charged while you talk
  • Utilises iPhone VoIP Apps with existing phone systems (Cisco Mobile 8.1, Avaya one-X Mobile, Skype, Counterpath Bria and MaxMobile for Microsoft Lync, and more)

Danny Moore, CEO for Express Online, said, "With companies looking to implement mobile solutions for their workforce, and the increased adoption of iPhones in both the Enterprise and Small Business markets, the iFusion product offers companies a flexible solution for managing business communication costs. We see this as a great opportunity for Express Online and AltiGen in meeting the growing mobility needs in the market."

David Tang, VP of Service Provider Sales and Marketing for AltiGen Communication, said, "With Australia having the second highest iPhone penetration in the world, we anticipate the iFusion to be a popular business iPhone accessory here. We are excited to partner with Express Online to market the iFusion to its Apple e/retail and B2B channels in Australia and New Zealand."
