Awards and Promotions
Posted on October 24, 2018 by Casey Houser
Hold on to your hat. The Mobile Breakthrough Award competition has named us the sole winner of the 2018 Unified Communications Solution of the Year Award for our development of the VirtualPBX Mobile Service!
We are extremely excited to make this announcement. Our Development Team has done an amazing job of creating our Mobile 4G LTE service that gives businesses native mobile access to all the features of their Dash Business Phone Plans. And our Sales and Support Teams have reached beyond expectations to make sure all our business customers are happy with their new mobile services.
Yes, this blog shows us patting ourselves on the back. Just a little. But it’s definitely more than that.
If you’re not familiar with Mobile Breakthrough or VirtualPBX Mobile, keep reading for more.
What’s Mobile Breakthrough?
Each year, an independent panel of experts uses the Mobile Breakthrough Award competition to showcase its picks of the best companies, products, innovations, and individuals in the mobile and wireless communications markets.
This season saw more than 200 nominations in categories such Enterprise Cloud Computing, Wi-Fi, Mobile Security, and Leadership. The Mobile Breakthrough committee selected VirtualPBX as the top nominee in the Unified Communications category.
Products and services nominated every year must have been made within a two-year window. The committee looks for developments that could be considered a “breakthrough” in the communications market.
Our selection here marks how far we’ve come, and the success we’ve seen, since the launch of VirtualPBX Mobile earlier this year.
Not Familiar With VirtualPBX Mobile Yet?
Our Dash Business Phone System helps connect businesses small and large. With features like Conferencing and Call Recording, Ring Groups, and Auto Attendant, we try to give our business clients everything they need in a VoIP service.
We already offer our Web Phone and Softphone, alongside desk phones, to connect to Dash. But we wanted to do more. This led us to develop VirtualPBX Mobile – a service that natively connects mobile phones to any active Dash plan and endows those mobile devices with all the features a business’s plan offers.
Businesses can purchase smartphones like the Apple iPhone 8 and 8+ or the Google Pixel 2 or Pixel 2 XL from the VirtualPBX Online Store. Or they can bring their own unlocked devices and simply order SIM cards for all their devices.
From there, transferring existing business phone numbers to VirtualPBX Mobile devices is easy. Users can also opt for new local numbers based on their zip codes. In either case, users can readily keep in touch with individuals through their mobile numbers or business extensions associated with their Dash accounts.
Mobile Breakthrough Awards Excitement
Competition was fierce for the 2018 Mobile Breakthrough Awards. We found ourselves, as winners, alongside such impressive company as Cisco, VMWare, and Verizon.
We’re happy that our hard work has paid off in the short time that VirtualPBX Mobile has been live. As we look even further into the future, we want to keep pushing the communications market to new heights, and with Mobile as one of our key offerings, we’re sure to get there.

It’s been a busy few weeks for awards here at VirtualPBX. First was the 2018 WebRTC Product of the Year Award for our free to use Web Phone, then the 2018 Unified Communications Product of the Year Award for our new 4G LTE Mobile Feature, and now we’re back again with more award news. This time, however, it’s not one particular feature that we’re celebrating, but our core VoIP service – Dash Business Phone Plans – which just received a Top Ten VoIP Solution Provider award.
Enterprise Networking Mag Names VirtualPBX 2018 Top Ten VoIP Solution Provider
In their Top Ten VoIP Providers article, Enterprise Networking Mag details the top features of Dash Business Phone Plans, including:
- Auto Attendant: greets your callers with a pre-recorded message, directing them to the individual, department, voicemail box, or informational message of their choosing. Perfect for businesses of all sizes, Auto Attendant is your virtual receptionist, saving time for your callers and employees, while also working overtime to route callers during off-hours and holidays to pre-selected alternate destinations.
- 4G LTE Mobile: this award-winning feature gives you and your employees the freedom of mobility by allowing you the full use of VoIP features on mobile phones without forwarding calls or installing apps. Additionally, as a first for VirtualPBX customers, 4G LTE Mobile also includes texting and shared data.

If it seems like we were just sharing another award win, you’d be right. This time, however, we’re celebrating the first award to be granted to our 4G LTE Mobile feature – another new feature added to our lineup in 2018.
Seamless Mobile – The Way it was Meant to Be
Employees are happier and more productive when given the tools that they want to use to communicate. That’s why device compatibility has always been a major point of focus for us here at VirtualPBX. And while historically users have been able to use mobile devices on their business phone plans by means of a softphone app or call forwarding, 4G LTE Mobile brings much more to the table and does so without a separate phone plan from a mobile provider.
4G LTE Mobile gives users the ability to talk, text, and share data across all employees on a system. No call forwarding, no apps – 4G LTE natively. Not only does this mean that all devices are on one invoice – it means that administration is all in one place too, letting companies more easily assign devices to new employees, manage call routing, and assemble call reports. It also brings all of the features available on VirtualPBX Phone Plans to the mobile device. This includes call recording, ACD Queues, extension to extension dialing, and more. Users simply sign up to receive a SIM card for an existing mobile device, or purchase a new mobile device from VirtualPBX with a SIM card included.
Award-Winning Features in the Works
Our teams are always hard at work adding new features and functionality. Keep an eye out for updates to the VirtualPBX Product Roadmap where we share upcoming and ongoing projects – who knows, the next entry may be an award winner soon, too! Otherwise, you can always keep up with VirtualPBX news here on our blog as well as on Twitter and Facebook.
