LITTLE ROCK, Ark., Feb. 12, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Allworx, a Windstream company, has announced that its new mobile phone client, Allworx Reach, was awarded Best of Show for SMB Solutions during ITEXPO East 2013 in Miami, Fla.
Allworx Reach, a virtualized Allworx handset designed to run on mobile devices, was introduced during the communications conference, held Jan. 30 to Feb. 1. Allworx developed the mobile application as a way for customers to manage their multiple communication systems through a single Apple or Android device.
The Reach application fundamentally changes the way customers use their Allworx systems by making accessible on mobile devices nearly all functions and features of Allworx phones, including the ability to simultaneously make and receive multiple calls, as well as managed voicemail, tracking calls, seamless conferencing, transferring, parking, and holding calls. Allworx Reach integrates seamlessly with new or existing Allworx products, requiring no additional Allworx hardware.
Products and services recognized for the ITEXPO Best of Show Award program demonstrate raw creativity and technological innovation. Evaluated by the editors of Technology Marketing Corporation (TMC) throughout the conference, nominated products must excel in the following areas: the product's feature set, its innovative qualities, ability to work with existing standards and products, and contribution to the development of future communication product and services.
"We have seen the concept of the 'mobile enterprise' grow exponentially as employees are required to do more work away from their desks or offices," said Chris Hasenauer, vice president and general manager of Allworx. "Allworx Reach is designed to help employees on the go to continue working easily and effectively. We are honored to be recognized by TMC as an innovator in this arena."
