CommuniGate Systems Brings Enhanced Call Control and Calendar Features to
Pronto! Portable Flash Client

New Pronto! version 1.2 adds Business Class features and Class of Services
capabilities for web 2.0 collaboration.

Mill Valley, Calif. — CommuniGate Systems, the leader in scalable
carrier-class Rich
Media( Internet
Communications solutions, today announced a new version of Pronto!, a
sleek, easy-to-use client interface that brings together Rich Media and
Internet Communications. Pronto! version 1.2 delivers key new call control
and calendaring features, including “click to call” and shared calendar

With version 1.2’s new “click to call” feature, Consumers, SMBs, SOHOs and
Linux users can initiate a voice call as seamlessly and easily as an IM
session. Pronto! integrates status, contact lists, and call management.
Through their contact list, users can instantly place a call to a colleague
or friend who is online with a single click — without changing screens or
looking up phone numbers. Pronto! seamlessly initiates the call through an
attached SIP phone or soft client.

This latest version delivers additional call management enhancements,
including the ability to access voicemail, call records, and call control
configurations, such as call forwarding, all from the integrated Pronto!
dashboard. Also included are improved calendaring features. With version
1.2, users can create and modify calendar events with a simple
drag-and-drop, utilize shared calendars, and merge multiple calendars into
a single view.

“In the age of the virtual workplace and the distributed organization,
Enterprise customers have been demanding solutions that integrate all of
their communication and collaboration technologies — voice, chat, instant
messaging, collaboration, etc. — enabling their employees, partners and
customers to work together more efficiently, thereby increasing both
productivity and profitability,” notes Chris Swenson, Director of Software
Industry Analysis at The NPD Group, “As such, recent growth in the unified
collaborative communications (UCC) solutions market has been strong and
will likely remain so for several years to come.”

“We needed to find an application that delivered high-performance
communications, security and manageability to meet the demands of our
clients,” said Joel Smith, Chief Information Officer of AppRiver. “To date,
Pronto! has been given glowing reviews by our customers. This latest
