CallTower’s Exponential Growth in Hosted Voice/Data Gets Company Named To CMP Media’s Fast-Growth 100 List

CallTower Is Identified as One of the Fastest Growing Solution Providers Across All Specialty Areas and Business Models

San Francisco, CA, September 07, 2006 --( CallTower, Inc., the leading provider of Always-On, hosted telephone and collaboration solutions for businesses, today announced that the company has been identified by CMP Media’s CRN as a Fast-Growth 100 company in 2006. CallTower placed 30th on the new 2006 growth list that was announced this week.

CallTower was named to the CRN Fast-Growth 100 list because the company has demonstrated consistent year-over-year growth since its inception in 2001. Most recently, CallTower commenced a two-year growth rate of 192.01 percent.

CRN’s Fast-Growth 100 identifies the 100 fastest growing solution providers across all specialty areas and business models. The profiles and data developed by CRN’s editorial staff provide insights into which models and technology are proving to be the most lucrative. 

CallTower’s aggressive growth is based on the company’s development and delivery of a complete, secure, scalable, end-to-end voice and data suite that provides productivity applications and connectivity from the Cisco® CallManager IP PBX softswitch to the Microsoft Exchange Server to the mobile device and the desktop or call center phone. 

With CallTower, mid-sized and enterprise businesses can better support, service, and sell to their customers and prospects with the functionality and capabilities of much larger organizations – all with significantly reduced capital expense. 

“This list, created by our editorial team, recognizes the Solution Providers that have worked tirelessly to support their customers. We salute them on their superior growth,” said Dan Dignam, publisher of CRN. "What makes this list so unique, and compelling, is that it represents such a large cross-section of the channel universe. What's more, this is a dynamic list. While 25 companies that were on CRN's 2005 Fast Growth 100 ranking made the grade again this year, sheer ingenuity and investment savvy propelled 75 new solution providers to growth rates worthy of the final cut." 

According to CRN, it was harder, and therefore more prestigious, to rank on this year's list. The growth rate of the 74th-ranked company on the 2005 CRN Fast Growth 100 (12 months' growth) is approximately equal to half the lowest growth rate on the 2006 CRN Fast Growth 100 (24 months' growth). In other words, after adjusting for the change in methodology from 12 months' growth to 24 months', the slowest 2006 company grew as fast as the 74th 2005 company. 

“CallTower’s almost 200-percent company growth over the past two years is a reflection of our ability to provide businesses with a unique, disaster-proof voice and data advantage that in turn increases their revenue and decreases their capital expense. CallTower’s advanced, hosted voice and data services give both resellers and their business customers the opportunity to be more competitive, and as a result, increase revenue,” said Mark Harris, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing for CallTower. “With CallTower, companies can use their telephone and email services to create an integrated communication and collaboration system and can immediately deploy and benefit from all the features and functionality to increase revenue, save time and capital expense.”
