Nectar Named as CRN Emerging Technology Vendor

Company Recognized for Software Innovation and Channel Strategy

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - July 15, 2010) -  Nectar Services Corp., a software firm specializing in managed services for the voice and data networks, and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Juma Technology Corp (OTCBB: JUMT), today announced it has been selected by Everything Channel as a CRN Emerging Technology Vendor. The annual list recognizes companies that are delivering high margins for solution providers with innovative and easy-to-use technology. 

Nectar received this distinction for the company's real-time network monitoring and management software, the Converged Management Platform (nectar/CMP), combined with the firm's robust channel support program and go-to-market strategy.

The nectar/CMP software delivers proactive monitoring for today's advanced voice communication networks and the data infrastructure that supports them. By providing a unified and business view of a company's converged communications network, the Nectar software enables its partners to expedite problem-resolution and reduce downtime. 

"With our Nectar Converged Management Platform software, we are enabling the Nectar partners to really transition their business from a traditional communications VAR to a true Managed Services Provider," said Edmond Baydian, Chief Services Officer. "Our partners now run their Service Operations Centers using the Nectar software, which allows them to better serve their customer base while operating so much more efficiently," said Baydian.

"Solution providers are always looking for new and innovative technology to solve business problems for their customers. As this industry has shown, today's emerging vendor can be tomorrow's Cisco, Google or Facebook and getting ahead of technology can help a VAR grow their business and differentiate their offerings," said Kelley Damore, VP, Editorial Director, Everything Channel.

The vendors that make up the CRN Emerging Technology Vendor list were founded in 2004 or later, have revenue under $1 billion and have an active U.S. channel strategy. Final selection to the Emerging Technology Vendor list was made by the CRN editorial team after a review of submitted information.

Anthony M. Servidio, Chief Executive Officer for parent-company Juma Technology, lauded the achievement. "It is a wonderful distinction to have our solution and our company recognized as an emerging software vendor for IP technologies. Since our channel program launch just two and a half years ago, the adoption rate has been amazing. Being named as an innovator by CRN Magazine is a testament to both our software and our channel program, and of course to our incredible team that supports our reseller partners and helps them to be successful," said Servidio.
