XO Communications Wins 2014 "Leading Lights" Award

XO(R) WorkTime(TM) Commended for Extraordinary Experience and Worker Productivity Gains

HERNDON, VA--(Marketwired - July 22, 2014) - XO Communications WorkTime mobility application received the distinguished "Most Innovative SMB Service" 2014 Leading Lights award during a June 17 industry executives' dinner at Chicago's Adler Planetarium.

Online global telecom publication Light Reading (www.lightreading.com) sponsored the awards program to recognize next-gen communications technology, applications, and services after evaluating hundreds of award submissions.

"We're thrilled that Light Reading has acknowledged the productivity boost that business workers experience using XO WorkTime," said Nicola Jackson, Vice President of Product and Marketing. "These workers want to make their own choices about which mobile devices to use at work, maintain separate work and personal identities, and use the same kinds of communications channels they enjoy at home in a work environment. WorkTime enables them to control their privacy, mobility, and multi-tasking opportunities just as it helps the company's IT department stay in charge of corporate data, applications, and company-wide telecom costs."

With WorkTime, workers don't have to carry two different phones. Employees can present a professional image to others while they are working on the go from their own personal mobile phones or laptops. Using their business phone numbers and presence, they can call, video chat, text, and instant message from WorkTime mode -- and still preserve the privacy of personal information, applications, and numbers stored on the personal device. What makes this all possible is a simple application downloaded from the Apple® App® Store, Google® Play Android® Marketplace, or myXO™ customer portal.

IT executives benefit from the cost savings associated with having all work-related communications delivered over the private XO network as an extension of the company's XO VoIP, Hosted PBX, and SIP trunking services. Across all business sizes and industries, the dual persona WorkTime application makes it easy for the company's IT department to integrate mobility, BYOD, and unified communications, and eliminate many of the costs and headaches associated with mobile device management. WorkTime also enables the company's IT department to implement comprehensive and scalable business continuity strategies, since employees can use their business phone numbers on personal devices whenever they are away from their desks.
