CallTower Expands Partner Program in Southern California to Meet Explosive Market Demand for Business IP Communications and Collaboration

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 10, 2006 -- CallTower, Inc., the leading provider of hosted, intelligent, communications and collaboration services for dynamic businesses, today announced the addition of two regional partners in Southern California, West Coast Consultants, Inc. (WCC) and Sandler Partners, to meet the growing demand for hosted voice and data services and solutions.

West Coast Consultants, Inc. (WCC) and Sandler Partners will now offer CallTower's complete, scalable, end-to-end voice and data suite that provides sophisticated communication and collaboration capabilities to growth enterprise businesses at the flip of a switch. CallTower's unique, hosted services and applications combine and integrate the Cisco® CallManager to the Microsoft® Exchange Server to the mobile device and the desktop or call center phone.

These partners have chosen CallTower for the company's Always-On reliability and scalable collaboration and communication applications that provide businesses with seamlessly integrated inbound/outbound voice and Internet applications that make them more competitive and better service customers. As a result, mid-sized and growing businesses can now seamlessly add collaboration operations and capabilities to their portfolio, and leverage their existing PCs, phones and infrastructure across multiple offices, without having to purchase new hardware. These growing companies can better support, service and sell to their customers and prospects with the functionality and capabilities of much larger organizations -- all with no capital expense -- via the CallTower hosted services and applications.

"Our new partners can now capitalize on the enterprise business trend toward outsourcing of IT, eliminating capital expense of antiquated phone systems, and the complementary trend of requiring advanced collaboration and communication applications," said Mark Harris, executive vice president of sales and marketing at CallTower. "Also, more and more companies are turning to CallTower and our partners to find ways to offer knowledge workers the ability to balance work and home life with advanced unified communications and presence-based technologies, while at the same time enhancing productivity, better serving customers and adding to the bottom line."

The new CallTower partners have already begun selling and promoting CallTower's hosted, Always-On collaboration and communication applications to their customer and prospect base throughout Southern California.

"To better compete in today's fast-moving economy, our customers are increasingly looking for ways to project a Fortune 500 image while still maintaining the agility of a growing enterprise," said Darin Stout, Vice President of Pasadena-based West Coast Consultants. "With CallTower, customers get the capabilities normally reserved for Fortune 500 companies that enable them to wring additional efficiencies out of their day and better manage customer relationships."

"The depth and breadth of CallTower's offering is unmatched in the market. CallTower's use of a dedicated T-1 line to bring traffic to their private network ensures carrier-class reliability and call quality that our customers demand," said Alan Sandler, Managing Partner of Manhattan Beach, Calif.-based Sandler Partners. "Moreover, CallTower's advanced collaboration and presence-based features resonate with customers that are looking to get more from their communications systems. CallTower's sophisticated functionality has enabled our customers to both increase productivity and ultimately improve their bottom line."
