CallTower Launches Consultant Access Program, Provides Telecom Consultants With Personalized Access to Hosted IP Market and Product Knowledge

Advanced Hosted Services, Market Experience, and Support Enables Independent Consultants to Confidently Recommend Hosted Voice/Data Services to Mid-Market Clients

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - June 8, 2007) - CallTower, Inc., the leading provider of Always-On, hosted communications and collaboration solutions for businesses, today announced the launch of the CallTower Consultant Access Program (CAP). The CallTower Consultant Access Program provides leading North American telecommunications consultants with unique access to hosted telephony services, customer ROI evaluations, RFP development support and valuable education on the fast emerging, hosted voice and data solutions market.

The CallTower Consultant Access Program will provide the customized information and support that Consultants require to better understand why, how and where hosted-PBX and IP-based Unified Communications solutions best meet the needs of their clients. This program is the industry's first of its kind to deliver education and sales support focused on hosted voice and data services targeted at the mid-market customer.

CallTower provides mid-market companies nationwide with hosted, enterprise-class IP communications. Its IP-based, hosted-PBX and communications services combine advanced applications into consumable, scalable solutions for medium-sized businesses. As the only provider to host PBX services, Exchange and Microsoft Live Communication Server all on one integrated platform, CallTower leads the way in delivering truly unified communications

The Increasing Mid-Market Demand for Outsourced IP Communication

CallTower created the new CAP Program to respond to the increasing mid-sized market demand for advanced, scalable outsourced voice and data services and applications that allow these companies to become more competitive at reduced capital expenditure levels.

"The North America small and medium business (SMB) segment for hosted business-VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) is set to reach US$416 million this year -- from about US$165 million in 2005. Between 2005 and 2010, the cumulative growth rate will cross 56.9%," according to a recently published AMI-Partners' report -- "SMB Interest Perks Up In Hosted VoIP."

"The concept of hosted VoIP is analogous to software-as-a-service (SaaS) where upstarts like Salesforce.com and NetSuite are gaining rapid adoption. Similarly, the concept of voice communications as a service is becoming very appealing as these small businesses have almost no IT/voice communications expertise and resources," says Sanjeev Aggarwal, AMI-Partners' New York-based Vice President for SMB Infrastructure Solutions.
