CounterPath Recognized as Leading Softphone Client Product for Its BlackBerry and SaaS Offerings

TMC Awards CounterPath with Two Product of the Year Awards Further Validating CounterPath's Strength in the Unified Client Market

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/27/14 -- CounterPath Corporation (NASDAQ: CPAH)(TSX: CCV), a leading developer of award-winning desktop, tablet and mobile VoIP software products and solutions, has been recognized by TMC, a global, integrated media company, for the Company's innovation with their new BlackBerry OS softphone client application and for cracking the code on SaaS by enabling a services based client offering that enterprises can quickly and cost effectively deploy across their organizations, leveraging the iTunes and Google Play online stores.

With the market for softphone clients being accelerated by the expansion of all IP-based communication platforms for voice, video, messaging and presence and CounterPath's current strength in the enterprise with its Windows, Mac, iOS and Android softphone clients, the Company sought to round out its application suite of clients and address the global opportunity held by BlackBerry.

CounterPath's Bria BlackBerry Edition is a SIP-based softphone app with exceptional voice quality, customized for the BlackBerry® Z10, Z30, Q10 or Q5. Featuring an intuitive interface and advanced security settings, the app includes the ability to swap between two calls, merge and split calls, and perform attended and unattended transfers, making Bria BlackBerry Edition a superior BlackBerry VoIP application for enterprises.

CounterPath was also recognized for its Bria Software as a Service (SaaS) offering. The Bria SaaS solution combines the complete suite of Bria suite of softphones (desktops, tablets and smartphones) with CounterPath's hosted Client Configuration Server (CCS) and enables enterprises and operators to easily and efficiently procure, distribute, provision, and manage softphone clients; essentially solving the go-to-market problems for enterprise customers. CounterPath has used the Bria SaaS offering to build momentum in the channel with partners such as TeleDynamics, WTG, and Interwork.

"It gives me great pleasure to recognize CounterPath with a 2014 Product of the Year Award for its commitment to excellence and innovation," said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. "In the opinion of TMC's editors, Bria BlackBerry Edition and Bria SaaS are deserving of this outstanding designation. I look forward to continued innovation from CounterPath."

"It is a notable honour to be recognized by TMC for not one, but two of our recent product offerings," said Todd Carothers, EVP Marketing and Product for CounterPath. "The awards are a testament to the continuing efforts by CounterPath to innovate and build client and server solutions that leverage the latest mobile VoIP and fixed-mobile convergence technology. Our SaaS offering in particular has strongly resonated with the channel as it helps customers, enterprises and operators quickly and easily deploy a seamless, simple and integrated communications solution within their organization or directly to their customers."

The winners of the 2014 INTERNET TELEPHONY Product of the Year are featured in the January/February 2014 issue of INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine and online at www.itmag.com.
