ZoomSwitch ZMS20-UC Receives 2011 Unified Communications TMC Labs Innovation Award

Houston, June 1, 2011 - ZoomSwitch's latest headset accessory ZMS20-UC (Rev. A) has won the 2011 Unified Communications TMC Labs Innovation Award. This award honors makers of ground-breaking products that advance unified communications (UC).

The ZMS20-UC (Rev. A) adds USB functionality to existing wireless and corded office phone headsets, allowing users to easily switch between office phone and PC audio communications at the touch of a button.

TMC CEO Rich Tehrani stated, "The TMC Labs engineers have extensive knowledge of the UC market and selected only those companies that demonstrated their out-of-box thinking to transform the industry. We're proud to grant ZoomSwitch with a Unified Communications TMC Labs Innovation Award. ZMS20-UC has shown true innovation and is deserving of this recognition."

Many organizations are piloting UC or are in various stages of UC implementation, which will ultimately result in the elimination of the traditional office phone from a user's desk. During this transition to PC-based UC communications, many companies are opting to keep the desk phone for the time being to ease the process of change management and to add redundancy.

The ZMS20-UC comes into the equation when an organization implementing UC realizes that they have made a significant investment in non-USB wireless and wired office phone headsets. In order to leverage this existing investment, companies use the ZMS20 to add USB functionality to existing headsets so users may communicate through the office phone or the PC interchangeably, at the touch of a button, through a single headset.

Additionally, the ZMS20-UC is often used as a USB adapter for headsets in UC implementations where the office phone is being removed entirely and communications is occurring solely over the computer.

Many companies are using ZMS20-UC as a headset accessory for Microsoft Lync / OCS, Cisco, IBM, Avaya, ShoreTel, Skype and other unified communications solutions.  ZoomSwitch products are compatible with Plantronics CS-Series, Plantronics H-Series and other office headset brands including Jabra, Sennheiser, and VXI.
