Mount Arlington, NJ (Distributor) — July 19, 2011 — Exigent Technologies, a New Jersey Managed IT services company announced that that it has partnered with M5 Networks, the market leader in business phone systems. Exigent is proud to offer its customers this new kind of telephone system in which the hardware is located in a secure datacenter, rather than the customer’s office. Customers access the telephone system and related applications and services through the Internet or other private connection.

The industry has standardized on hosted solutions using VoIP (Voice Over Internet Protocol) as the platform for modern phone systems. In other words, telephone systems are transitioning from hardware and cables in a closet to software in the cloud. This progression has allowed for more features and innovation as well as support for today’s increased need for mobility. With M5 Networks, companies get a solution that is fully managed with a monthly subscription that includes support, maintenance and upgrades. The solution is flexible enough to meet customer needs now and into the future.

Exigent Technologies is also an M5 customer. “For us it was an easy decision” said Daniel Haurey, Exigent’s President. “When we looked at the costs and benefits of a hosted solution versus a traditional, on-premise PBX, there was no question that the hosted model offered the most features and long term value with the least risk possible. The M5 solution stood above the rest because of its record of reliability and customer satisfaction.”

M5’s Director of Partner Operations, David Beagle added, “Exigent has a long history of success in managed IT services, especially with small business. The addition of hosted business phone systems from M5 will further differentiate them and deliver even more value to their customers.”
