As the winner, the real estate firm will receive the grand prize of 2 years of Cypress’ hosted VoIP and hosted unified communications solution --up to a $100,000 value--for free.
Cypress Communications’ hosted VoIP and unified communications solution, known as “C4 IP” for its ability to help enterprises “connect, communicate, collaborate and continue,” integrates traditional PBX (News - Alert) features with advanced VoIP and unified communications functionality into a single solution.
As a full service commercial real estate firm offering brokerage, property management and advisory services, Colliers Dow & Condon is headquartered in Hartford, Connecticut.

“We are excited to be selected as the winner of the Get Your VoIP On promotion.

Colliers Dow & Condon’s employees will be using C4 IP for a robust, yet flexible, communications experience. From the comfort of their own desks, employees can communicate using their office phone, use a PC for calling, or use both the PC and phone. This creates a powerful user experience with real-time presence, chat, video, file sharing and Web conferencing.
