Comcast Business Receives 2017 INTERNET TELEPHONY Product of the Year Award

Comcast Business VoiceEdge Skype for Business Companion recognized for industry innovation and quality

PHILADELPHIA, PA – January 30, 2017 – Comcast Business today announced that TMC, a global integrated media company, has named the Comcast Business VoiceEdge Skype for Business Companion as a recipient of a 2017 INTERNET TELEPHONY Product of the Year Award. These awards recognize the most innovative and highest quality IP communications brought to the market, or updated, in the past year.

Comcast’s Skype For Business Companion dynamically provides voice service to customers while using the Skype for Business client. Using click-to-dial, customers can initiate phone calls directly from a Skype for Business contact or within a message window using a Business Voice Edge device. During a call, customers can utilize a range of basic voice features using the Companion app, such as placing a call on hold, call transfer, call resume, moving a call to a new device, looking up caller details using the web, or placing their phone on “do not disturb.” 

Comcast Business VoiceEdge is a cloud-based, managed phone system designed for smaller and mid-market businesses. It offers a range of unified communications (UC) features and has a mobile app for both IOS and Android devices.

“Winning this INTERNET TELEPHONY award reflects our commitment to innovation and developing the highest quality voice products that exceed the needs of our customers,” said John Guillaume, vice president, product management and strategy at Comcast Business. “As organizations become more distributed with remote teleworkers and satellite locations, technology that enables real-time communications is essential to helping businesses collaborate and work more effectively to stay competitive.”

“It gives me great pleasure to recognize Comcast Business with a Product of the Year Award for 2017. I have always been impressed with their commitment to excellence and innovation,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “In the opinion of our distinguished judges, the Comcast Business VoiceEdge Skype for Business Companion has proven to be among the best IP communications solutions available on the market. I look forward to continued innovation from Comcast Business.”
