AltiGen Unveils Go Green Hardware Trade-In Program

Saving AltiGen Customers Thousands of Dollars as They Migrate to the Cloud

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - Feb 4, 2014) - AltiGen Communications, Inc. (OTCQX: ATGN), a leading provider of Microsoft-based Unified Communications solutions, is pleased to announce the launch of its Go Green Hardware Trade-in Program. This new program allows existing AltiGen customers that are migrating to the company's MaxCS Private Cloud hosted IP-PBX and Contact Center solution to recycle their old MaxCS IP-PBX hardware for a trade-in credit towards the cloud service.

The Triton family of PCI cards, MaxAccess cards, and Max1000/2000 DSP boards are eligible for trade-in. AltiGen will test and refurbish these cards for reuse as spare parts.

"We've been using an AltiGen PBX since 2008," said Tim Hall, owner of RE/MAX Central Properties of Ohio. "We were considering upgrading the aging hardware until we learned about AltiGen's 'Go Green' program and the hosted version of the product that we were already using. With MaxCS Private Cloud we no longer need to worry about hardware, and it was great to get credit towards the new service by recycling our old phone system."

"The 'Go Green' program is great for our customers who are on older AltiGen systems or who prefer to move away from managing hardware," said Randall East, Senior Account Executive at AltiGen authorized partner Qbase. "It's a win-win program that saves our customers money while doing some good for the environment."

Customers will receive a $500 credit for each qualified card/board they trade in. Recycling and repurposing the old hardware will help reduce e-waste and alleviate negative impacts to the environment.

"As part of the special 1Q2014 MaxCS Private Cloud promotion, AltiGen will double the Go Green trade-in credit, offering $1000 per card/board until March 31, 2014," said David Tang, VP of Cloud Services. "With this promotion, not only are customers able to start reaping the benefits of our Cloud offering, but they will be able to get a substantial discount towards it."
