TCN and Global Connect Prevail In Federal Circuit Appeal of Web-based Voice Messaging System Patents
St. George, Utah – August 1, 2017 – TCN, Inc., a leading provider of cloud-based call center technology for enterprises, contact centers, BPOs and collection agencies worldwide, in conjunction with Global Connect, another leading provider of cloud-based dialing and communication services, announced today that they prevailed in their appeal against NobelBiz, Inc.
The appeal stems from 2012 and 2013 lawsuits filed over a pair of patents, which NobelBiz believed, covered some minor functions of TCN’s and Global Connect’s systems. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit agreed with TCN and Global Connect on how these patents should be understood and vacated the Eastern District of Texas’ award of around $2 million.
“TCN is pleased with the court’s ruling and proud to finally have our actions vindicated,” said Jesse Bird, co-founder and chief technology officer for TCN. “With unparalleled customer support, service and technology, we continue to be committed to providing original, innovative and reliable contact center technology solutions for businesses of all sizes.”
In 2016, TCN and Global Connect completed a successful merger strengthening their suite of contact center technology offerings to further accelerate growth and momentum in the market. TCN has been growing rapidly and currently serves more than 2,000 customer in various industries, including newspaper, collection, education, healthcare, automotive, political, customer service and marketing.
