Clixme Forms Strategic Partnership With SmartMax to Deliver Click to Call Simultaneously With Live Chat

PROVIDENCE, RI -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 15, 2007 --VOIP5000, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: VPFI) (FRANKFURT: VQC1) , a provider of click to call services under the Clixme name as well as other VoIP applications for online businesses, announced today that it has formed a strategic partnership with SmartMax Software Inc., to cross market click to call and live chat services to each other's customers.

This new partnership will include the ability for all Clixme customers to add SightMax's award-winning live chat as an additional form of customer service/contact for their websites. In return Clixme will be made available and integrated into SightMax's live chat service for those customers wishing to use both technologies.

"By adding a live chat option, we now can support customers looking for a packaged solution with both these services," said VOIP 5000 CEO Fotis Georgiadis. "This partnership also creates additional revenue streams for us and has closed the gap with some of our competitors that offer live chat as part of their services."

"Having provided live chat services since 2004, we've learned that giving a buyer as many possible real time options for contacting the seller translated into more sales," said SmartMax Software, Inc. CEO Eric Weber. "Instead of re-inventing the wheel and developing our own click to call solution, we did an extensive search for partners and found that what Clixme had to offer in the form of support, service quality, and technology was a step above everyone else."

Clixme will initially be offered as an add-on for SightMax's hosted live chat service. The companies also plan to work together in integrating Clixme's click to call service into other SmartMax Software products that it sells as solutions for email, webmail, live chat, and monitoring.
