Versature First Canadian Provider to Integrate Polycom® Media Phone

Versature's Hosted PBX business customers are first in Canada to utilize Polycom®'s advanced video conferencing telephone.

Attention: Business/Financial Editor, Tech/Telecomm Editor OTTAWA, ONTARIO, MEDIA ADVISORY--(Marketwire - March 23, 2009) - Versature, a Hosted PBX provider to businesses across Canada, today announced that it has integrated Polycom's new media phone into its Hosted PBX offering. Easy-to-use phone based video conferencing is now available to Versature customers at no extra fee.

Versature is the first Hosted PBX provider in Canada to integrate the Polycom® VVX 1500?, the first business media phone that combines advanced telephony, one-touch video, and integrated business applications into a seamless, lifelike experience.

By simply plugging in the media phone, Versature users can access all of their existing Hosted PBX features and applications in addition to simple, one-touch video conferencing.

Many of our customers have expressed the desire to be able to hold video conferences as a means of communicating more effectively with remote offices while minimizing their carbon footprint. Video conferencing can also be a powerful tool for businesses to strengthen relationships with key partners and customers."

Versature customers can request the new Polycom media phones and begin holding video conference calls immediately. There is no additional monthly fee beyond the purchase or lease of the media phone.
