San Francisco, CA and Dallas, TX - June 25, 2007

Open Source Asterisk PBX is ready for business with latest user interface from Third Lane Technologies. ABP Technology signs multi-year Master Distribution agreement with Thirdlane; a software provider that enhances Asterisk or Asterisk Business Edition to become a user friendly easy to manage PBX.

Alex Epshteyn, President of Thirdlane says “We are delighted that ABP has selected our product to sell and promote it to its reseller partners. ABP is an ideal partner for us because they provide marketing expertise, tech-support and training required to help resellers become successful. For us it’s also great to work with one company that can cover the Asterisk community from Alaska to Argentina like they do.”

“We are impressed with Thirdlane’s product line especially by the fact that a single product and vendor offers a product that can be used for customer premise based solutions in small businesses all the way to a small hosted PBX solution that resellers can manage for a part of their customer base. This product highlights some of the transitions taking place in the market and blurs the line between reseller and managed service provider” says Robert Messer, President of ABP Technology “We see this as a great complement to larger scale carrier or third party hosted PBX solutions where the reseller may need more control over the application. Our resellers are consultative sales people and are the most successful the more choices they have to provide their customer with the most appropriate solution. ”
