Taking VoIP Beyond Talk

    New Unified Communications Demo Centre Open to Public,
    Lets Business Test and Try Advanced Tools Before Buying

    TORONTO, Dec. 4 /CNW/ - Quartet Service Inc., a leading information
technology outsourcing firm focused on the mid-tier corporate market in the
Greater Toronto Area, is delighted to host the grand opening of its Unified
Communications Laboratory (UC Lab).

    DATE: Wednesday, December 5, 2007

    TIME: 4 - 7 P.M.

    PLACE: 1867 Yonge Street, Suite 102

    PROGRAM: hors d'oeuvres, beer & wine, brass quartet, draws and more

    "When VoIP is just voice you save money," says Robert Bracey, Quartet's
President and CEO. "But when you take VoIP beyond simply talk and mix in all
these new applications watch out, especially for agile small and medium-sized
businesses who traditionally get the short end of the stick when it comes to
emerging technologies. Not anymore."
    Among the VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) applications on display at
the lab:

    -   Integrating voice, data, video, security, and wireless into a single
        communications repository;
    -   Turning Outlook into a single platform for all communications,
        including email and voicemail which means you can listen to your
        email messages and talk to your Outlook calendar to set appointments;
    -   Transforming phone calls into videoconferences, and much more.

    "We want customers to see and feel the power of these new tools," says
Mr. Bracey. "Our lab is a true demo centre where customers can try new things
like talking on their VoIP phone and then walking outside and seamlessly
getting connected to the wireless phone companies' networks without dropping
the call. Not only is it cool, but it also saves customers a ton of money."
    Quartet invites companies with 30 to 500 employees to visit the lab and
experience the applications and advanced VoIP technologies from Cisco,
Microsoft and HP.
    "With the resources we have in this high-tech hub, there's no limit to
what we can do blending voice and data into unique customer-tailored
configurations," says Mr. Bracey. "Size no longer matters when it comes to
getting the most advanced VoIP business solutions. This total connectivity
takes the hassle and complexity out of the equation."
    Quartet is a Microsoft Gold Partner with infrastructure and information
worker specialization, Cisco Premier Partner in the VoIP category and
certified Blackberry Partner. It specializes in serving the growing call from
mid-tier companies for sophisticated technical services such as remote
management, disaster recovery and third-party IT infrastructure management.
