BASIX™ Garners Prestigious "Product of the Year" Award

Orlando, FL, January 29, 2009 – Acredo Technologies announced today that Technology Marketing Corporation’s (TMC®) Internet Telephony Magazine has named Acredo's premier hosted Internet phone system for business, BASIX™, as a recipient of its 2008 Product of the Year Award.  Each year TMC selects Internet telephony products based on their uniqueness and innovative application for this award.

The award was based on a case study of NewPoint Schools, an Acredo customer.  NewPoint is a system of  charter schools that offer a unique college preparatory education through use of state-of-the-art technology.  The Panama City campus became a BASIX™ subscriber before the 2008 school year.  Their success in bringing VoIP to the classroom, and their satisfaction with the level of service Acredo provided them, illustrated to TMC the value of BASIX™ as a state of the art Internet phone system. "The entire phone system which included thirteen Avaya IP phones, was installed and operational in less than one hour", stated Mike Ross, President/CEO of Acredo.  "The simplicity of use, the quality of the call experience, and the savings that the school will realize were the reasons NewPoint said they were so satisfied with their choice of BASIX™ as their phone system."

This is not the first time Acredo has caught the attention of TMC.  At the 2007 Internet Telephony Conference and Expo Acredo unveiled their hosted broadband model. TMC was impressed by the innovation behind their product and named BASIX™ "Best in Show."

“We’re proud to honor these accomplishments in the advancement of IP communications and look forward to more innovative solutions from Acredo Technologies in the future” said Rich Tehrani, TMC President and Editor-in-Chief of Internet Telephony Magazine.  This continued recognition for excellence and ingenuity from leaders in Internet Telephony serves to establish BASIX™ as the premier provider of Internet phone systems for business.
