TMC Presents Ribbit With 2008 Communications Solutions Product of the Year Award

Ribbit for Salesforce Recognized for Outstanding Innovation, Enabling Sales Efficiency (May 20, 2009)

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 05/20/09 -- Ribbit, a BT company, announced today that Technology Marketing Corporation (TMC) has named Ribbit for Salesforce as a recipient of a 2008 Communications Solutions Product of the Year Award.

Ribbit for Salesforce helps sales organizations do more with less by reducing their administrative burden, and helping them become more responsive and collaborative. Ribbit offers a voice-to-text conversion capability enabling salespeople to dictate notes and memos using their mobile phones, which automatically flow directly into and their email inbox -- eliminating the need to type updates. The solution further simplifies sales management by storing and organizing voicemail like email in, with messages fully mapped to leads, contacts, and in-progress deals. In addition, all voice messages are delivered as SMS or email so salespeople can respond or forward immediately, without dialing into voicemail.

"Ribbit for Salesforce has been recognized with a 2008 Product of the Year Award for their excellence in the advancement of voice and data communications," said Rich Tehrani, TMC President and Group Editor-in-Chief. "Ribbit has proven they are committed to quality and excellence in solutions that benefit the customer experience as well as ROI for the companies that use them. I am pleased to honor their hard work and accomplishments, and look forward to more innovative solutions from them in the future."

The Communications Solutions Product of the Year Award recognizes the vision, leadership and attention to detail that are the hallmarks of the prestigious award. The most innovative products and services brought to market in 2008 were selected as recipients of this year's Communications Solutions Product of the Year Award for their groundbreaking achievement. The 2008 Communications Solutions Product of the Year Award winners can be found on the INTERNET TELEPHONY and Customer Interaction Solutions websites.

"It's more important than ever for salespeople to have the tools they need to build and maintain customer relationships, and successfully close deals.
