ATLANTA, Apr 26, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Cbeyond, Inc. (NASDAQ:CBEY, news, filings), a leading provider of voice, data and mobile business applications to more than 50,000 small businesses across the country announced today that Technology Marketing Corporation's (TMC(R)) INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine has named Cbeyond's Mobile Workforce Manager as a recipient of its 2009 Product of the Year Award.
Mobile Workforce Manager by Cbeyond is the ideal solution for small businesses with employees in the field as it allows for accurate tracking and managing, leading to increased productivity, reductions in cost, and improvements in customer service. Mobile Workforce Manager has a rich feature set which enables Cbeyond's small business customers to utilize their field resources more efficiently and streamline their daily processes.
"We are honored to be recognized with the Product of the Year Award," said Melanie Kreh, Cbeyond's director of product management. "We launched Mobile Workforce Manager with the small business in mind. The challenge we continued to hear from our customers was a lack of visibility they had with field-based employees which increased costs and negatively impacted their service levels. Mobile Workforce Manager solves this need in the marketplace while helping small businesses grow."
A Cbeyond customer since 2003, Star Distributing, a provider of commercial laundry parts and equipment, leverages Cbeyond's Mobile Workforce Manager to effectively track their service technicians and installation teams while they are working in the field. Julie Lyon, Star Distributing manager said, "Since implementing Cbeyond's Mobile Workforce Manager solution we have been able to manage our time more efficiently, which has positively impacted our business and our employees' productivity. I would recommend Mobile Workforce Manager to any small businesses with field-based employees."
"INTERNET TELEPHONY is proud to grant Cbeyond a 2009 Product of the Year Award for Mobile Workforce Manager. Cbeyond has proven its commitment to quality and excellence while addressing real needs in the marketplace," said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. "We're happy to recognize and honor Cbeyond for their development of IP communications technology. We look forward to more innovative solutions from them in the future."
