Gersten Savage LLP Selects Nectar for Hosted Telephony Solution

Law Firm Recognizes Benefits of Hosting

FARMINGDALE, NY--(Marketwire - September 15, 2008) - Nectar Services Corp., a provider of IP communications solutions and wholly owned subsidiary of Juma Technology Corp. (OTCBB: JUMT), today announced that the law firm of Gersten Savage LLP has signed a three-year services contract for Nectar's Hosted Telephony Systems (nectar/HTS).

Gersten Savage is one of New York's top five independent law firms specializing in securities regulation, corporate law and finance.

Partners at Gersten called the Nectar Hosted Telephony platform "a perfect solution" for their mid-size firm.

"The decision to go with Nectar's hosted telephony solution -- instead of buying a new premises-based system -- was really cut and dry for us," said Gersten founding partner Jay Kaplowitz. "With Nectar Hosted, we gain all the benefits of an enterprise-class system without the upfront expense and ongoing maintenance.

"Our firm is getting the best of both worlds: an enterprise phone system at an affordable, fixed monthly cost," concluded Kaplowitz.

The nectar/HTS solution is founded on Avaya's industry leading IP telephony technologies, delivering hundreds of leading enterprise features at a fraction of the cost.

"Nectar's Hosted Telephony platform enables businesses of any size to take advantage of superior systems that were previously only attainable by the enterprise elite," said Jonathan Cerezo, Nectar's Vice-President of Hosted Telephony Solutions. "Our solutions are enabling businesses to operate more efficiently and at a fraction of the cost."

Joseph Fuccillo, President and Chief Technology Officer for parent-company Juma Technology, said firms like Gersten Savage are part of a large trend of hosted telephony adopters. "We are finding that mid-sized businesses, branch offices and home-based workers are embracing outsourced telephony. Nectar delivers all of the benefits with none of the headaches, which is an attractive model for our customers," said Fuccillo.

"In today's world of constant communications, there are greater demands on legal professionals to be always accessible to their clients. We look forward to helping Gersten Savage leverage advanced communications to stay competitive and provide the level of service that their clients have come to expect."
