Winner, winner, chicken dinner! Looks like the press loves Zultys’ cloud offerings as much as we do.
tl;dr – Zultys cloud solutions are just as awesome as the award-winning premise version – in fact, it is the same core software and features.
Zultys has a single software stream of solutions – that means whether you install a phone system in your office in a Zultys server, run Zultys on VMware, throw Zultys in your data center, use Extenda’s data center, use Zultys’ data center, or just rent the system from Extenda, Zultys or another vendor, it is the exact same multi-media unified communications system, with the same features and interoperability between locations.
Below is the press release regarding the various 2015 Product of the Year honors won by Zultys.
