SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - April 16, 2010) - AltiGen® Communications, Inc. (OTCQX: ATGN), the leading provider of integrated Microsoft-based Unified Communications solutions, realizes immediate success with its new MaxMobile software for the iPhone now available with the latest VoIP Unified Communications platform -- Max Communications Server 6.5 Update 1. Therm-Omega-Tech, Inc. has experienced firsthand the power of bringing business-class PBX functionality to smart phone devices.

In February, Therm-Omega-Tech, Inc., a leading manufacturer of reliable Tempered Water Systems and Automatic Temperature Control Valves for Fluid Management since 1983, found themselves in the middle of the record setting blizzards in Warminster, Pennsylvania. Like most businesses in the area, Therm-Omega-Tech employees were stranded at home for days at a time due to major roadways being shut down during a Pennsylvania state of emergency. Just days before the snowstorms hit, Bardissi Enterprises, a certified partner of AltiGen Communications, deployed the MaxMobile solution for key sales executives at Therm-Omega-Tech as a part of a beta test for the revolutionary new MaxMobile software. When the storms hit, contrary to most business in the area, sales resumed as usual for Therm-Omega-Tech as both national and international calls continued to roll in via the employee's iPhones, which were running MaxMobile. Inbound callers were unaware of any disruptions in service as the iPhones functioned as normal business extensions with full PBX features.

"Paul Driscoll, Sales Manager for Therm-Omega-Tech, informed me that he received his usual sales calls throughout the day on his iPhone due to the MaxMobile install, which allowed him to quote and close three new deals -- even one prospective customer who called in from out of the country," stated George Bardissi, President of Bardissi Enterprises. "Therm-Omega-Tech is now going to deploy the iPhone MaxMobile Solution for the rest of the company staff. The AltiGen MaxMobile iPhone solution combined with Microsoft SBS 2008 and Exchange 2007 brings all the company resources directly to the palm of your hands, allowing companies to conduct business remotely regardless of storm disasters or any other factors preventing travel to the office."

"Our latest version of Max Communications Server brings advanced, enterprise class mobile PBX features to the Apple iPhone," stated Jerry Fleming, AltiGen's President & COO. "MaxMobile allows smart phones to act as the primary business PBX extension and dynamically redirect all PBX extension calls to the mobile phone -- completely transparent to the calling party. With critical business-class PBX functionality, integrated with advanced smart phone features, MaxMobile offers true mobile communications on a single smart phone platform."
