    SAN JOSE, Calif., June 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Virtual PBX(R) inventor and
 leading supplier of hosted PBX services, today announced that Technology
 Marketing Corporation's (TMC) Communications Solutions
 ( has named the Virtual PBX Service as a
 recipient of a 2007 Product of the Year Award.
     Virtual PBX provides businesses with a hosted phone service that can
 quickly and inexpensively establish a sophisticated phone system that
 integrates remote employees under one or more main business numbers,
 regardless of where they take calls - at headquarters, branch offices, home
 offices, or on the road. Because Virtual PBX is hosted, there's no need to
 purchase expensive equipment or technology.
     In December of 2007, Virtual PBX released its new VPBX SmartID(TM) an
 all-new, next generation Caller ID service, and the VPBX Recording
 Manager(TM), which allows easy recording, upload, and management of a full
 library of Auto-Attendant greetings for every client.
     The VPBX SmartID(TM) feature adds customizable digital displays and
 verbal information about the purpose and nature of each call. Business
 professionals can easily see and hear when an incoming call is a business
 call rather than a personal call, find out what business it is for, and
 know what function inside the business has been dialed, such as sales,
 support, or customer service.
     The VPBX Recording Manager feature helps Virtual PBX customers maintain
 and manage a library of automated greetings used to answer incoming phone
 calls. Using VPBX Recording Manager, the company's customers can easily add
 new greetings to their systems, assign separate greetings to different
 business numbers, and change the greeting manually or automatically.
