Inter-Tel Frost & Sullivan Award

Inter-Tel has picked up Frost & Sullivan’s prestigious “Product Portfolio of the Year” for 2005 at the industry research firm’s annual awards ceremony. Inter-Tel was also named recipient of the “Best Bang for the Buck” award for its advanced Enterprise Conferencing and Enterprise Messaging applications.

“We are honoured that both Frost & Sullivan and Internet Telephony Magazine think so highly of our products and applications,” said Chris Harris, managing director EMEA, Inter-Tel. “Inter-Tel has always strived to develop technology that tangibly impacts business processes. These awards reinforce our fundamental belief that new solutions are only meaningful if they add value for the customer.”

In her selection of Inter-Tel for the “Product Portfolio of the Year” award, Frost & Sullivan analyst Elka Popova noted that, “Inter-Tel offered a comprehensive product portfolio that offers a competitive advantage, including enterprise telephony, state-of-the-art conferencing, messaging and collaboration applications, along with a wide range of value-added solutions.” Additionally, Popova cited Inter-Tel’s longstanding ability to address drivers that relate specifically to the small- and mid-size business market as another factor in its selection for the award.
