JamboTECH Expands Focus on Enterprise Solutions in Salesforce Automation and CRM, Spins Off Sister Company Providing Telephony for Local Search

AGOURA HILLS, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 3, 2005 -- JamboTECH (, a managed provider of next-generation enhanced carrier services, today announced a strategic initiative to enhance its core technology for salesforce automation (SFA) and customer relationship management (CRM), which it offers to telecom carriers, master agents, and conferencing service providers.

At the same time, JamboTECH announced that it is spinning off a separate company -- known as Jambo -- that combines powerful telecommunication assets with compelling Internet pay-for-performance technology, delivering local search solutions that enable consumers to connect directly from search result listings to a business via the telephone. JamboTECH is positioned to use similar technology to develop and market solutions that will increase productivity for sales and customer support representatives, helping them more efficiently connect with each other and with their customers.

JamboTECH offers innovative services enabling new and productive ways of communicating. Founded by a team of seasoned telecom professionals, entrepreneurs, and technologists, JamboTECH is a managed provider of next-generation, enhanced carrier services including voice-enabled calling and conferencing services, converged carrier switched services, and integrated mobile solutions for carriers, telecommunication service providers, and CRM companies. These companies in turn market OEM or co-branded solutions to retail customers.

JamboTECH provides the underlying technology platform for several national and international carrier services, while also supplying key services directly to enterprises. Its innovative services are delivered via a fully managed, carrier class network platform. JamboTECH's next-generation services leverage emerging transport layer standards such as IP with the flexibility of soft switch technology to deliver high-margin, differentiated offerings that help attract and retain customers.

Using its proprietary VoAP -- "voice over any protocol" -- system, JamboTECH does not need to rely on traditional telephony. Instead, JamboTECH provides its robust capabilities through any of several protocols to provide enterprises with lowest-cost collaboration and communication solutions, to facilitate efficient SFA, CRM and other group communications.

"We streamline communication and collaboration with tools that are especially critical for large, dispersed groups of professionals who need to be able to communicate freely, often at a moment's notice," said John Melideo, founder, JamboTECH. "Our products provide significant benefits to carriers and service providers seeking high-margin, differentiated offerings. We're enhancing our services and developing new, profitable services that will attract and retain customers."

JamboTECH's BlackPhone suite of communication tools helps businesses improve efficiency, reduce travel costs, and streamline communications via intuitive, on-demand, time-saving solutions.
