PhoneFusion Named as Finalist in 2008 American Business Awards(SM)

6th Annual Stevie® Awards Will Be Presented on June 12 in New York City

FT. LAUDERDALE, FL--(Marketwire - May 15, 2008) - PhoneFusion™ was named as a finalist today in the 2008 American Business Awards. The company's PhoneFusion One service was recognized in the category of Best New Product or Service in Telecommunications.

Hailed as "the business world's own Oscars" (New York Post, April 27, 2005), The American Business Awards are the only national, all-encompassing awards program honoring great performances in business.

Stevie Award winners will be announced during the annual gala on Thursday, June 12 at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York City. More than 600 executives from across the U.S.A. are expected to attend. The ceremonies will be broadcast on radio nationwide by the Business TalkRadio Network and hosted by Liz Claman of FOX Business Network.

With PhoneFusion One service, users have one phone number to give to colleagues, family and friends. When this number is dialed, PhoneFusion One then directs the call to the phone, fax or email as the subscriber chooses. PhoneFusion One delivers standard features one would expect from a traditional phone service, plus some of the most advanced business functionality available. Since launching in January of 2008, PhoneFusion One has been well received by customers and lauded by telecommunications and technology media and industry experts.

PhoneFusion was selected as a finalist from a field of 2,600 entries in more than 40 categories.

"ABA entries grew more than 30 percent this year, so being named a finalist is more of an accomplishment than ever before," said Michael Gallagher, founder and president of The Stevie Awards. "It means that independent business executives have agreed that the nominee is worthy of national recognition. We congratulate all of the finalists on their achievement and wish them well in the competition."

"We are honored to be recognized for providing one of the best services in telecommunications," said Louis Libin, chief executive officer of PhoneFusion. "Our team at PhoneFusion works very hard to come up with practical solutions that give hard-working small business professionals a better way to manage their daily communications.
