Expo 2013 in Miami, Fla.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark., Jan. 31, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Allworx, a Windstream
company, today introduced Reach – its new mobile phone client – and System
Software 7.5. The new products will be highlighted in Windstream's booth #506
at IT Expo 2013, being held Jan. 30 to Feb. 1 at the Miami Beach Convention
Center in Miami, Fla.

Allworx Reach is a virtualized Allworx handset that is hosted on an Allworx
server and designed to run on mobile devices that use Apple's iOS or Android
operating systems.It provides a robust level of feature functionality and
integration as part of the Allworx family of IP-based PBXs. Reach is an
Allworx-created solution designed exclusively to work on Allworx systems. It
integrates seamlessly with new or existing Allworx products and requires no
additional Allworx hardware.

"The Allworx Reach and System Software 7.5 will fundamentally change the way
our customers use their Allworx systems," said Chris Hasenauer, vice president
and general manager of Allworx, an award-winning developer of Internet
Protocol based (IP) phones and phone systems for businesses. "Our customers
are looking for innovative solutions for unifying their communications
activities across multiple platforms, and they want those solutions delivered
in a cost effective manner. The products we are announcing today meet those
goals and will offer our customers a clear competitive advantage."

With Reach, you can simultaneously make and receive multiple calls. Almost
every Allworx function is at your fingertips, including seamless conferencing,
transferring, parking, or holding calls. You can listen to your voicemails in
any order you choose and Reach allows you to place calls from the Allworx
system contacts list or your local contacts. There is a comprehensive history
list that tracks every inbound, outbound or missed call. And best of all,
you'll see the status of other Allworx handsets or other Reach users before

Allworx will also feature another new offering at the Windstream booth—Allworx
System Software 7.5. This newest Allworx software release continues to build
on the rich history of product enhancements that has become a key foundation
behind the popularity of the Allworx family of IP PBXs. By adding a new level
of customer-focused functionality, such as multiple call handling, voicemail
messaging, presence and user device status, plus tight integration with
contacts and call history, Allworx demonstrates again that it provides
advanced features based on Allworx customer demands.

One function of the Allworx System Software 7.5 is Shared Call Appearances,
which allows co-workers in a PBX environment to now avoid transferring calls
when a simple hold will suffice. In addition, there is a greatly improved park
capability that provides callers with a wealth of information about calls they
or other callers have parked.

For administrators, there are new User Permission Levels that allow access to
day-to-day administrative functions along with enhanced security level
passwords and strong user password protections.

"We are continuously making updates to our phone systems to enhance the user's
experience," said Hasenauer. "Our Allworx System Software 7.5 release delivers
on our commitment to effortless communications and gives our customers many
new features to simplify their business operations."
