ConnectSolutions Awarded 2013 Unified Communications TMC Labs Innovation Award

SAN FRANCISCO --(Business Wire)--

ConnectSolutions announced today that TMC, a global, integrated media company, named ConnectSolutions' NextUC Enterprise as a 2013 Unified Communications (News - Alert) TMC Labs Innovation Award winner presented by INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine.

The NextUC Enterprise solution is the first to market with a simple, "instant on" Microsoft (News - Alert) Lync service that easily integrates with Microsoft Office365 to enable Exchange unified messaging. Whether a company has five employees or tens of thousands of employees, NextUC Enterprise provides organizations of any size with frictionless desktop or mobile access to unified communications (voice, video/audio, secure instant messaging from any device in any location with an Internet connection) in less than five minutes.

"When ConnectSolutions acquired NextUC in early April, we became the only provider of a complete range of cloud-based UC services to companies and institutions of all sizes," said Michael Fitzpatrick, ConnectSolutions CEO and co-founder. "We are delighted to accept TMC (News - Alert) Labs' innovation award for NextUC Enterprise and their recognition of our success in bringing enterprise-class unified communication solutions to small and midsize businesses."

"ConnectSolutions has displayed its commitment to quality and innovation in the development of the unified communications industry," said Tom Keating, CTO and TMC Labs Executive Editorial Director at TMC. "I look forward to more innovation from ConnectSolutions and continued effort toward improving the future of the UC industry."

"We're pleased to bestow ConnectSolutions with a Unified Communications TMC Labs Innovation Award," stated Rich Tehrani, TMC CEO. "ConnectSolutions NextUC Enterprise has shown true innovation and is deserving of this recognition."

The TMC Labs Innovation Award honors products that have demonstrated innovation, unique features, and noteworthy developments toward improving communications technology. The TMC Labs Innovation Award is not granted to the best-selling products, but instead to those representing a significant contribution to the industry.

2013 TMC Labs Innovation Award winners are featured in the July 2013 issue of INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine.
