AltiGen Launches MaxCS Private Cloud

Cost-Effective V-Dedicated Hosted IP PBX and Call Center Managed Service

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - Jan 16, 2014) - AltiGen Communications, Inc. (OTCQX: ATGN), a leading provider of Microsoft-based Unified Communications solutions, is pleased to announce the launch of MaxCS Private Cloud, a unique virtual dedicated IP PBX and Call Center managed service offering for small-to-medium-sized businesses (SMBs). This new solution leverages the innovative technologies of AltiGen's MaxCS all software VoIP business communications system, which has been deployed by over 10,000 customers in more than 20 countries worldwide.

MaxCS Private Cloud is powered by AltiGen's new MaxCS 7.0 software release, which is optimized for cloud deployment and includes the following key functionalities:

  • Dynamic SaaS licensing for PBX/Contact Center features
  • Support for Polycom VoIP phones behind NAT/Firewall
  • Web-based Partner Portal for MaxCS Private Cloud Ordering/Management

"Unlike other hosted IP PBX or IP Centrex services that are deployed on a shared hosting platform, MaxCS Private Cloud is a unique dedicated managed service," said David Tang, AltiGen's Vice President of Cloud Services. "Each customer receives a full-featured IP PBX and Contact Center system, delivered as a secured virtual cloud instance from AltiGen's scalable and resilient cloud network."

MaxCS Private Cloud offers the following benefits for SMBs.

  • Eliminates the need to invest CAPEX in a phone system
  • Reduces OPEX and maintenance costs
  • Lowers monthly communications costs
  • Allows customization for vertical markets (e.g. Pest Control, Insurance, Financial Services) leveraging AltiGen's flexible APIs

MaxCS Private Cloud is sold and supported by AltiGen's extensive authorized partner channel.

"The migration of our AltiGen phone systems in New York and Texas to MaxCS Private Cloud was seamless and painless," said NuTravel Technology Solutions CEO Carmine Carpanzano. "We were able to reuse our existing AltiGen phones and our employees did not need retraining. We had experienced an extended power outage during Hurricane Sandy, so incorporating the disaster recovery capability of MaxCS Private Cloud was very important to us. Our local authorized AltiGen partner, Reliance Technologies, made the whole process quite easy."

"The response from our customers to MaxCS Private Cloud has been overwhelmingly positive," said Sunil Arora, Vice President of Reliance Technologies. "New customers as well are finding the affordable monthly subscription more attractive than an upfront purchase. The paradigm is definitely shifting." 

Whether upgrading from an existing AltiGen phone system or deploying as a first time customer, MaxCS Private Cloud will provide an easy to manage solution that reduces communications costs and lowers the total cost of ownership (TCO).
