Ottawa (January 16, 2009) - Protus, the provider of the highest quality software as a service (SaaS) communications tools for small-to-medium-businesses (SMB) and enterprise organizations announced today that Technology Marketing Corporation's (TMC) INTERNET TELEPHONY has named MyFax, the fastest growing Internet fax service, and my1voice, the cost-effective, feature-rich virtual PBX phone service that travels with the user from phone to web, recipients of the 2008 Product of the Year Award.
"INTERNET TELEPHONY is pleased to grant a 2008 Product of the Year Award to Protus for their virtual PBX service, my1voice, and Internet fax service, MyFax. They are committed to quality and excellence while addressing real needs in the marketplace," said Rich Tehrani, TMC President and Editor-in-Chief of INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine. "We're proud to honor their accomplishments in the advancement of IP communications and look forward to more innovative solutions from them in the future."
"This dual honor marks significant accomplishments for us," said Joseph Nour, CEO of Protus. "In the last year we launched my1voice while continuing to make improvements and deliver the service our MyFax customers expect. Winning award for both MyFax and my1voice is a testament to the determination of the entire Protus team."
MyFax allows users to securely send and receive faxes via e-mail. Since faxes are sent and received using existing email accounts and the Web, the need for fax machines, fax servers, fax supplies, dedicated lines, and costly long-distance charges is eliminated.
my1voice enables calls to be answered by a Virtual Auto-Attendant and personalized and professional greeting messages can be created. With the call forward Find Me Follow Me feature, incoming calls can be forwarded to additional phone numbers in sequential order or all at once so that they are never missed. Voicemail messages can be stored and managed online just like email and you don't need to switch phone services when signing up.
A full list of Product of the Year winners will be published in the February, 2009 issue of INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine. INTERNET TELEPHONY has been the authority in IP communication since 1998.
