Centrepoint Technologies Becomes TalkSwitch

Leading developer of telephone solutions for small businesses puts highly succesful TalkSwitch brand name front and center with customers

OTTAWA, ON - July 26, 2005 - Centrepoint Technologies, a company specializing in the design and manufacture of innovative telephone systems for small and multi -location businesses, announced that effective immediately the company will operate as TalkSwitch®.


The name has been changed to reflect the success, recognition and prominence of the TalkSwitch brand in the marketplace.

"We're proud of the hard work and effort that has gone into building a truly remarkable product and a valuable brand name," said Jan Scheeren, President and CEO, TalkSwitch. "The TalkSwitch brand has been so well received in the marketplace that most of our resellers and customers already identify us by that name. This was a logical evolution for our company, and we're very confident going into the future under the TalkSwitch name."

Telecommunications solutions from TalkSwitch are ideal for small and multi -location businesses with up to 32 telephone users per office. Each TalkSwitch telephone system comes loaded with a host of features including multi -level Auto Attendants, Call Cascade options, Voicemail and much more. TalkSwitch systems are available with traditional telephone network connections or with combined traditional and Voice over IP (VoIP) network connections. VoIP capabilities can also be added later to the traditional systems.

Since its inception, TalkSwitch has been dedicated to addressing the specific needs of the small business market. It was the first to introduce a telephone system designed to be completely installed, configured and managed by the end user, and the first to allow system capacity to be expanded over the local area network. This pioneering approach has since set the standard for the design of telephone systems for the small business market.

TalkSwitch has recently announced interoperability partnerships with Cbeyond Communications and Mediatrix Telecom Inc., and was a founding member of the SIPconnect Interface Specification group. Under the TalkSwitch name, the company will continue its rigorous interoperability -testing program with other leading VoIP service providers and equipment manufacturers. Additional interoperability announcements will be made in the near future.

"TalkSwitch systems have changed the way small businesses think about telecommunications," said Scheeren. "That legacy of innovation will continue under our new name, and we look forward to delivering the same level of expertise our customers have come to expect from us over the last 15 years."

TalkSwitch systems start as low as $695 USD and are available from TalkSwitch Authorized Resellers or online at www.talkswitch.com. The VoIP -enabled TalkSwitch 48 CVA is available for $1795 USD.
