ConvergeOne Chooses Nectar Monitoring and Management Platform as Part of New ConvergeOne Vision Service

FARMINGDALE, NY--(Marketwire - August 26, 2009) - Nectar Services Corp., a provider of VoIP communications services and wholly owned subsidiary of Juma Technology Corp. (OTCBB: JUMT), today announced that ConvergeOne has chosen Nectar's monitoring and management solution as part of the platform for its new managed services offering.

Combining national reach and hands-on service, the ConvergeOne family of companies offers a comprehensive range of value-added communications solutions for businesses of all sizes. The operating companies under the ConvergeOne umbrella include Georgia-based Combest, Idaho-based S1 IT Solutions, and Minnesota-based NACR (North American Communications Resource), which is the largest Avaya BusinessPartner worldwide.

ConvergeOne selected Nectar's Converged Management Platform (nectar/CMP) as the monitoring component of ConvergeOne Vision -- the new 24x7 network monitoring and support service created by ConvergeOne to proactively manage a customer's voice, video, and data in a single converged environment. The nectar/CMP solution has been implemented in the ConvergeOne Network Operations Center (NOC) and will help to provide superior managed services to the NACR, Combest, and S1 IT Solutions customer base.

According to Scott Springgate, Vice President of Services at ConvergeOne, the company is excited about integrating nectar/CMP into the ConvergeOne Vision platform. "The CMP application provides the most advanced monitoring features -- allowing us to offer the highest level of value and services to our customers. In addition to the advanced converged network monitoring enabled by Nectar, ConvergeOne Vision provides root cause analysis, incident resolution, and reporting, as well as support from our own expert technicians."

Besides the agreement with Nectar, the ConvergeOne companies work with other strategic partners to integrate the latest hardware, software, applications, and services into leading-edge solutions for businesses. Among those partners are Avaya, Cisco, Microsoft, Mitel, Hewlett Packard, IBM, and EMC.

David Giangano, Nectar's President of Global Channels, called the new ConvergeOne agreement a notable milestone for the entire Nectar organization. "ConvergeOne put our nectar/CMP solution through a very extensive testing and validation process, and ultimately selected Nectar as the superior solution in the industry. Clearly, it's a great accomplishment for us and a significant endorsement," said Giangano. "The entire ConvergeOne family of companies maintains a stellar reputation for superior service. We are extremely pleased to announce them as partners and look forward to delivering tremendous value into the marketplace together."

Value-added solution providers such as ConvergeOne are using Nectar as a vehicle to effectively transition their business to incorporate a managed services model and drive reoccurring revenue on top of traditional equipment sales.

Anthony M. Servidio, Chief Executive Officer of Nectar's parent-company Juma Technology, added, "This is certainly an exciting announcement for our company. Signing ConvergeOne highlights the enormous value of our services and further expands our reach across the nation and into thousands of new accounts."
