SUNNYVALE, Calif., October 25, 2005 - ShoreTel, Inc., the fastest growing IP PBX company in the United States and the leader in customer satisfaction, today announced that its ShoreTel 6 IP phone system was named Editors' Choice by PC Magazine. The publication tested and reviewed four of the leading VoIP solutions for small and midsized businesses - those with between 20 and 200 employees
"The ShoreTel VoIP solution won our Editors' Choice for its remarkable integration of complex telephony technology with productivity-enhancing features and solid design," said Oliver Kaven, Lead Analyst, Networking, at PC Magazine. "From the outstanding phones to the well-designed ShoreWare Director management console, we found that ShoreTel was the only contender in this round-up that really inspired users to take full advantage of its many impressive features."
