HERNDON, VA--(Marketwired - Mar 12, 2014) - XO Communications announced today that TMC, a global, integrated media company, has named XO WorkTime, a new mobility solution, as a recipient of a 2014 INTERNET TELEPHONY Product of the Year Award. This award recognizes the year's most innovative products in the telephony and unified communications market.

XO WorkTime puts an employee's office phone and unified communications tools on their personal smartphones and PCs. It extends the customer's XO VoIP, Hosted PBX or SIP service to the employee's personal smartphone for a seamless end-to-end unified communications experience. With XO WorkTime, enterprise IT and network managers have the flexibility to implement mobility initiatives leveraging their Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) strategies while also reducing costs and eliminating the need to provide company mobile phones. Employees simply download XO WorkTime to their smartphone or PC and launch the application to talk, video chat, text, or IM as if they were using their business telephone. XO WorkTime also supports dual personas, maintaining separation between work and personal identities on smartphones, ensuring employees' personal phone numbers, applications and information remain private.

"It's an honor to have TMC recognize the innovation that XO WorkTime provides to businesses seeking affordable, enterprise-grade BYOD solutions," said Don MacNeil, chief marketing officer of XO Communications.
