    SAN JOSE, Calif., Aug. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Virtual PBX(TM), inventor and
 leading supplier of hosted PBX services, today announced that the U.S.
 Local Business Association (USLBA) has honored Virtual PBX with a 2008 Best
 of San Jose Award in the Telecommunications Services category.
     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.
     "We're proud to be a part of San Jose, one of the 10 largest cities in
 America," said Greg Brashier, COO of Virtual PBX. "It makes this award,
 marking Virtual PBX as the top telecommunications company in the area, very
 important to us. And with all the competition in Silicon Valley, being
 first here is terrific."
     The USLBA "Best of Local Business" Award Program recognizes outstanding
 local businesses throughout the country. Each year, the USLBA identifies
 companies that they believe have achieved exceptional marketing success in
 their local community and business category. These are local companies that
 enhance the positive image of small business through service to their
 customers and community.
     Various sources of information were gathered and analyzed to choose the
 winners in each category. The 2008 USLBA Award Program focused on quality,
 not quantity. Winners are determined based on the information gathered both
 internally by the USLBA and data provided by third parties.
