Implementing Unified Communications Solutions to Increase Workplace Productivity

PHILADELPHIA, PA & AUSTIN, TX - September 12, 2011 - Alteva, a WVT Communications company (NASDAQ: WWVY), and cloud -based Unified Communications (UC) solution provider headquartered in Philadelphia, today announced that its Founder and Chief Innovation Consultant, William Bumbernick, will join executives from leading business communications companies, Digium, Fonality, and ICON Voice Networks, on a SMB panel at ITEXPO West, September 13 -15th in Austin, TX. The session titled, "Unified Communications Unleashed," will take place September 14th from 9:00 -9:45am.

A recent study undertaken by Webtorials found that reducing an employee's unproductive time by 25 percent can yield an extra six weeks in productivity each year, per employee, which should be an immediate call to action for business owners to fix these inefficient communications issues. This session will discuss the true benefits of UC for the SMB market, including best practices, deployment options, strategic opportunities, integration into existing processes and technologies, and end user education. Attendees will leave with a clear goal to drive UC implementation in their businesses.

"There are many different drivers when it comes to creating efficiency and improving workplace productivity. Implementing various types of technologies, especially those of a collaborative nature, top that list including hosted VoIP and UC," said Bumbernick. "Not only will collaborative technologies save money, but allow businesses to streamline processes, permitting more time to concentrate on what they do best - be it customer service, sales, or innovation."

ITEXPO is the event with an educational program that teaches resellers, enterprises, SMBs, and Government Agencies how to select IP -based voice, video, fax, and unified communications to purchase or resell. It's where service providers learn how to profitably roll out services their subscribers are clamoring for. ITEXPO is where buyers, sellers, resellers, and manufacturers meet to forge relationships and close deals.
