New York, NY (July 14, 2008 )- M5 Networks Announced Finalist for New Product of the Year M5Connect in Coveted Annual Telecommunications Industry Honors. The American Business Awards are the only national, all-encompassing awards program honoring great performances in business.

More than 2,600 entries were submitted for consideration in more than 40 categories, including Most Innovative Company, Best Executive, Best Corporate Social Responsibility Program, and Best New Product or Service. Finalists were selected by business professionals nationwide during more than five weeks of preliminary judging.

M5Connect is ideal for connecting SaaS and custom applications with the M5 IP Telephony platform. It's a service provided by M5 Networks that allows client applications to interact with or control an M5 phone though a simple web API. In the simplest scenario, an application can request the M5 phone dial out. In more complex scenarios, a client application can perform screen pops as well as additional phone controls, including answering, disconnecting, holding, resuming, transferring calls.

Computer Telephony Integration is nothing new. What's new about M5 Connect is how easy it is to connect software and maintain a perfect user experience. This illustrates the true power of the Cloud approach. Voice is a mission-critical piece of enterprise software, and connecting it to other enterprise software unlocks important data while driving productivity.

President and CEO of M5 Networks Dan Hoffman commented, "M5Connect is simply the greatest new product out there. Clients actively using it are beyond pleased and are reporting quick and measurable business impact. The awards just keep rolling in for M5Connect and we as a company are very proud of the new product!"
