It’s an often-used term in competition, but I tend to think it applies in all areas of life. For starters, it’s applicable in the sense that front-loading the beginning of the calendar year with goals, ambition, and resolutions galore can lead to an unnecessary degradation of focus as the months progress. We don’t think that’s acceptable, so we like to think about finishing every day as strongly as we can, that way we can have the chance to close the year better than we began it, too. As it turns out, we are on the right track to do that this year, too.
The Negative Split
Counterintuitive to its name, a negative split is a great thing to have. For competitive runners (or racers of any discipline, for that matter), a negative split occurs when an athlete completes the second half of their event in a time less than it took to complete the first. This means that while you may have started off great, you dug deep and found some more fuel for the fire just when others may have begun feeling fatigued. We think we might be closing in on one right now ourselves.
Okay it’s actually called a softphone, but we think it’s pretty tough. Coming into the year it was one of the most compatible, capable, and complete solutions for modern telecommunications challenges and our VirtualPBX Softphone App is just digging deeper still. After winning the 2015 Innovation Award for its versatility, the free to download app built on that success with security fortifications and first-to-market updates in operating system compatibility. And because everyone loves to see an award-winner looking fresh on the red carpet, we went ahead and gave the Softphone App a friendly interface and modern, clean look.
Still not convinced? True to form of finishing strong, we’ve gone and released some more updates again just to pad the stats a little before the calendar rolls-over. With improvements to background notifications, call forwarding and on-hold music management, and overall performance boosts, this newest upgrade in the Softphone App is the best one yet!
Don’t just read about it, though, go and see for yourself by downloading the free app at either the Apple App Store or on Google Play. Not yet a VirtualPBX customer? Take a look at our plans to unlock the telecommuter-savvy features of the VirtualPBX Softphone. Once you get hooked on the Softphone App, you’ll probably be interested in learning about some of our other success stories, too. Don’t wait too long, though, the year is almost over and then we’re back at square one!
