BroadWorks® Application Software Provides Framework for mindSHIFT's Managed VoIP Services

GAITHERSBURG, MD - September 5, 2006 - BroadSoft, Inc., a leading provider of VoIP application software, and mindSHIFT Technologies, a leading Managed Services Provider, have teamed up to provide an integrated voice solution to small- and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) in the Boston, New York, Philadelphia and Washington, DC areas. Marketing its product as Hosted Voice over IP (VoIP), mindSHIFT has already signed up a major client with locations stretching across the East Coast.

mindSHIFT selected BroadSoft's BroadWorks® platform to deliver hosted PBX, because of its robust VoIP features, such as selective call forwarding, find me/follow me, LDAP integration for personal directories, and remote, at-phone and web control of personal calling features.

"The BroadWorks application platform provides excellent mobility and flexibility for our customers," said Paul Chisholm, chairman and CEO of Fairfax, Virginia-based mindSHIFT. "Hosted VoIP gives small- and medium-sized organizations all the features and benefits of carrier-class communications, including scalability, reliability and redundancy - at an affordable cost. Also, BroadWorks features, such as visual voicemail in Outlook and conferencing, blend perfectly with our managed IT services."

Almost immediately after offering its new hosted voice solution, mindSHIFT landed a multi-office VoIP customer. "We found the mobility and security offered by mindSHIFT's Hosted VoIP solution to be a great value," said Debbie Lambert, founder and managing partner at Johnson Lambert & Co., a CPA and consulting firm with offices in six states. "Working from our various locations and numerous offices, VoIP gives us the flexibility and end-user control to improve our productivity and better service our customers."

"mindSHIFT has earned a well-deserved reputation for providing dependable managed IT services throughout the Northeast, and hosted PBX is a natural extension of their service offerings," said Michael Tessler, president and CEO of BroadSoft. "Integrating BroadSoft's next-generation applications with mindSHIFT's enterprise-strength IT services gives telecommuters, road warriors and in-office employees at SMBs a winning combination of easy-to-use productivity enhancers."
