2008 World Series: Oranges for Cheesesteaks?

Press release from: Alteva

/ PR Agency: MRB Public Relations
Philadelphia, PA and Tampa, FL – October 22, 2008 – The Philadelphia Phillies and Tampa Bay Rays will soon battle it out on the field in the 2008 World Series. In each respective state, thousands of people are already placing bets on who should win this year’s title. In particular, two hosted phone system providers are actually betting oranges for cheesesteaks in a friendly, VoIP competitor match up. Alteva is apparently putting a dozen cheesestakes on the line against Telovations’ two bushels of oranges.

Representing the Phillies: Hailing from Philadelphia is Alteva, leading provider of Hosted VoIP solutions in the Northeast. Alteva provides businesses with a telephone system that requires minimal installation and configuration while eliminating monthly phone system maintenance charges and reducing overall telephony costs. With a sophisticated open standards infrastructure, Alteva enables businesses to easily integrate existing business applications and add a steady stream of new Alteva or third-party “mashup” applications.

Representing the Rays: Based in Tampa, Telovations provides growing businesses in the Southeast with a hosted, managed, IP communications solution, including telephone equipment, telephone service and a high-speed T-1 connection to the Telovations private, secure and fully managed Cisco Powered RealTime Network(SM).

“Just like major league sports, business is all about competition. These guys on the field are fierce competitors, but off the field many of them are good friends,” said William Bumbernick, President and CEO of Alteva. “Our industry is no different. While we compete on opportunities, we also have a common goal to educate businesses about how Hosted VoIP or IP PBX solutions are superior to the traditional customer premise based PBX model. Most importantly, it is a great opportunity to show our support for our Phillies, especially since our offices are located in the heart of Philadelphia,” added William Bumbernick.

“Hosted IP communication solutions have surpassed premise based systems and there’s no reason for businesses to purchase, install and maintain systems that will be paid off by the time they’re obsolete,” said Telovations President and CEO Rick Schonbrun. “Plus, Tampa is the best team in baseball and it’s hard to find a good cheesesteak down here.”
