Company Continues Long-Lasting Streak of Product Innovation Awards

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwired - Mar 24, 2017) - Masergy today announced that TMC has named its Global Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) as a 2016 Cloud Computing Excellence Award winner. Masergy's UCaaS offering was selected for its extensible, highly scalable IP communications infrastructure, redundant carrier-grade platform for voice, video and mobility communications as well as providing comprehensive 24/7 client support that has achieved a record 70.3 Net Promoter Score (NPS®).

The Cloud Computing Excellence Award, presented by Cloud Computing magazine, recognizes companies that have most effectively leveraged cloud computing in their efforts to bring new, differentiated offerings to market. Judges -- once again -- selected Masergy's UCaaS as the winner, this year noting their advanced unified communication features, built-in automatic failover and disaster recovery to increase reliability.
