CallTower Named to Fast-Growth 100 List by CMP Media's CRN

Identified as One of the Fastest Growing Solution Providers Across All Specialty Areas and Business Models; CRN Is the 'Voice' of the Channel

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - July 17, 2007) - CallTower, Inc., the leading provider of Always-On hosted communications and collaboration solutions for businesses, today announced that the company has been identified by CMP Media's CRN, vital information for VARs and technology integrators, as a Fast-Growth 100 company. CallTower placed 33rd on the new 2007 growth list that was announced this week.

CallTower was named to the CRN Fast Growth 100 list because the company has demonstrated consistent year-over-year growth since its inception in 2001. Most recently, CallTower commenced a two-year growth rate of 165.61%

CRN's Fast-Growth 100 identifies the 100 fastest growing solution providers across all specialty areas and business models. The profiles and data developed by CRN's editorial staff provide insights into which models and technology are proving to be the most lucrative.

CallTower's aggressive growth is based on the company's development and delivery of a complete, secure, scalable, end-to-end voice and data suite that provides productivity applications and connectivity from the Cisco® CallManager IP PBX softswitch to the Microsoft® Exchange Server to the mobile device and the desktop or call center phone. With CallTower, mid-sized and enterprise businesses can better support, service, and sell to their customers and prospects with the functionality and capabilities of much larger organizations -- all with significantly reduced capital expense.

"As the channel's vital resource, CRN is solely focused on the Solution Provider community. This list, created by our editorial team, recognizes the Solution Providers that have worked tirelessly to support their customers. We salute them on their superior growth," said Robert DeMarzo, Editor of CRN.

"What makes this list so unique, and compelling, is that it represents such a large cross-section of the channel universe. What's more, this is a dynamic list. While 59 companies that were on CRN's 2006 Fast Growth 100 ranking made the grade again this year, sheer ingenuity and investment savvy propelled 41 new solution providers to growth rates worthy of the final cut."

"CallTower's growth over the past two years is a reflection of our ability to provide businesses with a unique, disaster-proof voice and data advantage that in turn increases their revenue and decreases their capital expense. CallTower's advanced, hosted voice and data services give both resellers and their business customers the opportunity to be more competitive, and as a result, increase revenue," said Mark Harris, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing for CallTower. "With CallTower, companies can use their telephone and email services to create an integrated communication and collaboration system and can immediately deploy and benefit from all the features and functionality to increase revenue and save time and capital expense."
