VirtualPBX Features: Virtual Phone System Benefits

The Original "virtual PBX" for Business

In 1997, our founder, Stephen Lange coined the term and developed the first “virtual” PBX service for businesses. Long before the concept of “the cloud,” his original vision allowed businesses to transmit calls over the internet, granting flexibility without the high costs and restrictive nature of the telecom giants at the time who told him it couldn’t be done. Nearly three decades later, our vision is the same – to offer flexible communications solutions with real human support and to drive innovation as a private company that only answers to ourselves and to our customers.

Over 25 Years In Businesses

In July 1997, Stephen Lange founded VirtualPBX – the first hosted PBX service for businesses in a basement in San Francisco’s Haight Ashbury district. Originally having created a dietary recommendation tool based on a caller’s dialpad selections, the dynamic telephony technology behind the scenes, which operated on an internet connection rather than expensive physical PBX hardware, became a far more valuable service. Soon, Lange’s business expanded and CEO Paul Hammond was brought on board. Their combined vision saw a focus on product excellence and customer intimacy that continues to drive the business forward today.

Now, as a fully remote company with employees scattered across the USA, we use our own tools to stay connected while helping our customers to do exactly the same.
