CallTower Non-Profit Organization (NPO) Program Provides Advantages of Advanced, Hosted Communications Plus Annual Five Percent Donation Back

CallTower's Hosted Cisco® CallManager, Integrated Microsoft® Exchange & LCS Suite Increases Productivity, Provides Cost Savings, Global-100 Class Service to NPOs

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 27, 2007 -- CallTower, Inc., the leading provider of advanced, hosted communications and collaboration solutions, today announced its new CallTower Non-Profit Organization (NPO) Community Donation Program, a service that provides qualified North American non-profit organizations with a five percent annual cash donation back to the NPO based on their total annual fees for CallTower hosted voice and data services.

Qualified non-profit groups can now utilize affordable, hosted, advanced IP-based voice and data services that in the past were only available to Global 250-type companies and receive an annual five percent donation back from CallTower.

By using CallTower's advanced, hosted voice and data services, growing and multi-site NPOs can now better support, service their communities with the functionality and capabilities of much larger organizations -- all with significantly reduced capital expense. CallTower's services and applications also allow NPOs to increase their internal and external communications and collaboration productivity and reduce their local, long distance and conferencing telephony costs.

Providing Non-Profit Organizations With Advanced Technology and Features

As telecommunications and messaging costs-per-employee are rising, most not-for-profit organizations are experiencing challenges in how they efficiently manage the growing IT infrastructure demands of email, voicemail, fax and other client support services, as well as the capital expense to deliver these new technology solutions.

CallTower's services and applications include: hosted voice, data and network services, all Internet, email and fax messaging, Microsoft® Exchange and the Microsoft® Live Communication Server (LCS) integrated with the Cisco® CallManager, secure T-1-based telephony hosted in Tier-1 data centers, calling plans, network administration, single-wire connectivity, call center functions, disaster-proof access to all data and voicemail, and 24/7/365 U.S.-based customer support.

CallTower transforms an organization's communications processes into a competitive advantage that allows these groups to be more successful in today's marketplace. CallTower provides solutions to solve support and organizational challenges that previously required additional human resources. CallTower allows non-profit workers to communicate with, support, and service their donors, stakeholders and constituents better.

"By switching to CallTower, our volunteers have experienced extreme ease with communication efforts. CallTower delivered our multi-site organization a hassle-free solution that provided us with unique voice and data capabilities and made our communication more efficient," said Kaivalyamurtidas Sadhu, Senior Administrator of BAPS West. "We strongly recommend CallTower to Community-Based Organizations who offer various philanthropic services to society."

CallTower Cost Saving Programs to Qualifying NPOs

CallTower has two programs that assist North American Non-Profit Organizations.

--  The CallTower Teleconnect Program is based on the California
    Teleconnect Fund that is available for not-for-profit (NFP) organizations,
    and provides these qualified organizations a steep discount on select
    telecommunications services offered by CallTower.  This program provides
    advanced new hosted IP Communications telephony and data services at a
    fraction of the cost, and was created to meet the needs of qualified non-
    profit organizations that are looking to update their current
    infrastructure with advanced new hosted telecom and data solutions.
--  The CallTower Non-Profit Organization Community Donation Program is an
    annual program that provides qualified non-profit organizations with a five
    percent annual cash donation back to the NPO, based on their total
    CallTower service fees for the year.
"CallTower believes in demonstrating corporate responsibility across North America and giving back to the communities where we and our customers live and work. Our advanced, hosted services and applications, combined with our new Community Donation Program, are a perfect solution for NPOs that want to communicate, collaborate and more efficiently support their community," said Mark Harris, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing for CallTower. "CallTower is committed to developing secure, Always-On applications that improve the productivity of knowledge workers -- both within a business or a not-for-profit organization. With CallTower, non-profit organizations -- like their business counterparts -- can virtually eliminate their capital expense for telephony and data, add collaboration and communication applications, and immediately benefit from all the features and functionality."
