Desktop Softphone Won The 2017 Communications Solutions Product of the Year!

Desktop Softphone Won 2017 Product of the YearWe just got some terrific news from TMC, one of the telecom industry’s most trusted monitors, and we are pleased to share it with you today. The VirtualPBX Desktop Softphone won the 2017 Communications Solutions Product of the Year for 2017! We’re thrilled to have received this prestigious honor from a panel of judges whose experience ranges from all corners of the telecommunications industry over the course of the past few decades. With this type of legitimacy and those impressive credentials, it’s incredibly satisfying and humbling to have been recognized among the dozens of other impressive products that were released in the past twelve months.

VirtualPBX Desktop Softphone and CRM Integration

desktop softphone crm integrationIt makes sense that this is the year that the judges chose to award the VirtualPBX Desktop Softphone with the product of the year, however, because it has undergone some impressive changes so far in 2017. As many of you already learned from either our VirtualPBX New Products Newsletter or by following our Product Roadmap, we recently launched a new collaboration that made the already popular softphone take off to new heights. By introducing the VirtualPBX Desktop Softphone and Salesforce CRM Integration, we’ve empowered sales teams across the globe to leverage their favorite existing software platforms in ways they had never been able to before. With complete data visualizations covering a myriad of call and lead closure and advancement metrics, and by being able to one-click-call directly from the CRM platform they already trust, sales teams are more suitably equipped to never miss a beat in the increasingly hectic world of sales. We’re proud to have done more to not just successfully overlap two of the most integral digital business tools available, but to have made specific adjustments whereby the sum of the parts now are greater than the whole thanks to this integration.

Always More to Come

We’d be lying if we said this wasn’t a hugely significant win for ourselves and our customers, but that’s not what it’s all about, either. Of course the praise and recognition from the industry is special to us, but that’s always just motivation to press our horizons out even further. That said, thank you to everyone who participated in beta testing, contributed to the feature requests on our Product Roadmap, and for everyone else who trusts us to deliver them the very best business communications tools we can. Without you all none of this would be possible. Make sure to stay tuned to the regular channels and on Twitter and Facebook for what is yet to come. We’re looking forward to having you along for the journey!

We Have a Winner! #MobileYear Sweepstakes Winner, James Doyle

MobileYear Sweepstakes WinnerThe #MobileYear sweepstakes ended at the end of January and we’ve connected with our winner, mister James Doyle of the greater Tampa Bay area in Florida, for a brief chat about how he plans to use his winnings. As you recall, we proudly partnered with Remotive and Sneek, two awesome companies for remote professionals, to put together a prize package of distance working assets worth well over $1,000. Together with one free year of Dash Business VoIP Service, James is all set to tackle anything his business gets tossed his way. And as we found out, it turns out this is about the best possible timing imaginable for him, because he’s recently launched a new business.

Serendipity and Swoll

For those that may not be aware, “swoll,” is one of those new terms to describe what the youth in America refer to as being really bulked up from a lot of working out. And while James never actually used that term, it’s definitely related to his new business. James has always had an entrepreneurial spirit and, after honing his customer service skills through a successful career in the hospitality industry, he decided to combine his passion for fitness with his love for, well, dessert. Enter the newest sensation sweeping the fitness nation, FREEZINda! This is James’ patent-pending concept of an easy and enjoyable way for athletes to eat protein powder in a nice, frozen, ice cream-like form. The good timing of becoming the #MobileYear sweepstakes winner coinciding with the launch of a new business can’t possibly be overstated, especially with James’ bi-coastal lifestyle.

With You Wherever You Work(out)

James may call Tampa Bay home, but he has family in San Diego, enjoys vacationing in the summer all the way up in Anchorage, Alaska, and has business partners and franchises popping up all over the country so, clearly, he’s a man on the go. James recognizes the importance of establishing a good amount of momentum as soon as possible after launching a new company and counts the flexibility of his new remote working toolbox among his best assets to accomplishing that. Plus, considering he has employees, franchise opportunities, and supply partners scattered across the globe, he is going to be on the move a lot over the next year.

Stay Tuned for the Next Opportunity

We don’t make a habit of running sweepstakes that often, but we had a record-breaking amount of turnout for the #MobileYear sweepstakes, and really that can’t be ignored. While we can’t guarantee when the next such opportunity will come along, we can definitely tell you it has gotten us thinking about how we’re going to execute on the next one. The best way to keep in the loop for whenever that may be is to be like James and follow us on Twitter and like us on Facebook. Plus, you can always get some insight into what we have coming around the corner by taking a gander at our interactive VirtualPBX Product Roadmap. You can comment on what we’re doing, make suggestions, and you just might even get some inclination of what else we have brewing in the sweepstakes department, too.

Thanks to everyone who entered and helped to make this #MobileYear Sweepstakes such a huge success and please join me in congratulating James and wishing him luck with FREEZINda!

Game of Phones: Kazoo 4.0 and KazooCon First Day Recap

game-of-phonesFirst things first, I wish I could take credit for that super catchy play on words, but alas that credit belongs to the folks at 2600Hz. That’s the theme of the much-anticipated KazooCon 2016 After Party, and yes, you can bet your bottom dollar we’ll be there. However, one thing I can’t guarantee is that Las Vegas rules won’t apply – as in, what happens at KazooCon stays at KazooCon. Either way, I’ll keep you posted. In addition to coming up with fun ways for telephone engineers to unwind, the clever folks at 2600Hz have spent most of the day making sure we’re waist-deep in the latest and greatest feature of their all-new platform, Kazoo 4.0. Now, for many of you who are super excited about the ins and outs of the newest technology from 2600Hz, I regret to inform you that the technical information about the update made my brain melt a little. However, all is not lost! You can get every little bit of information on the update online by visiting Kazoo 4.0 on GitHub.

Not All for the Engineers

With so much having been accomplished over the past year at 2600Hz, needless to say, Kazoo 4.0 is just the tip of the iceberg. That being the case, once again presenting on the State of the Union was 2600Hz COO, Patrick Sullivan. Patrick was keen to stress a lot of the functionality of the new Kazoo platform, of course, but there were several other key takeaways fro his keynote –

  • Even having a bigger, badder, and much more intuitive Kazoo UI is no reason to throw out the old system entirely and therefore the old Kazoo UI will remain available for archiving on GitHub.
  • Because relationships are so important to the development of Kazoo, so too is an equivalently important support system for the people who use it. That’s why there’s a totally new Kazoo Support System that, based on how good this new platform looks, likely won’t be a place you spend a lot of time at.
  • Reinforcement of the policy of “Open Core vs Open Source” which is a new way for people to choose to contribute chains of code to the master technology or to create proprietary products from the original. This supports the many entrepreneurs who rely on Kazoo as the basis of their own products.

Looking Forward to a Bright Future

Ultimately, whether it was from the product team behind Kazoo 4.0, leaders of regional telecom reselling companies, or even the CPO of Vonage, Omar Javaid, there was one consistent theme throughout the day. Specifically, the state of technology makes this a very exciting time to be in hosted communications, both as a supplier or a consumer. The added functionality of the hardware and software available is redefining how we will communicate with each other beyond whatever we could have imagined. Additionally, insofar as the Kazoo 4.0 platform is concerned, Patrick Sullivan eloquently mentioned that holistic improvements from software, hardware, and servers all contribute to eliminate uncertainty in service. And no matter where you fall on the telecom user/engineer spectrum, that’s something we can all get behind.

More to Come

Remember that you can follow us on Twitter or like us on Facebook for updates on KazooCon 2016. We’ll be back tomorrow with even more from the biggest event in the hosted business telephone business!

Tell your Friends! All New Dash Free Trial!

Dash Free TrialIt may seem tough to believe, but Dash was only introduced to the world earlier this year. In light of the overwhelmingly positive reception to Dash from both industry examiners, customers, and even our own peers, all of the accolades that Dash has received reminds us why it seems like we can’t ever remember a time when it wasn’t around. Well, we’ve got some more news for you about Dash that will also have us trying to remember what life was like before. Starting today, Dash will be available to try out for up to two weeks as part of the new Dash free trial.

Dash For Everyone

Dash broke the mold for user experience when it was introduced and subsequent iterations aren’t held to any lesser of a bar. That is why the new Dash free trial comes with the ability to add up to 5 users on our Essentials and Advanced plans. This way your entire team, from the sales engine of your business to the folks who make sure you have enough coffee in the break room, can try out your new phone system. Plus, with totally commitment-free use for up to 60 calling minutes or two weeks, whichever comes first, your team will have all the time it needs to explore the award-winning VoIP platform.

Don’t Skimp on the Details

We never do! Unlike other trials or demos that offer the “sneak peek” style of experience where various features and functions are locked, we want you to experience the whole enchilada. That’s why we have all of the enterprise-grade features that have made Dash so popular available to everyone on the Dash free trial. You wouldn’t expect to take a test drive in a new car but not be allowed to use the radio, would you? So why would you expect anything less than the total, full-throttle, and unparalleled experience that comes from the still all new Dash?

Get Started Now

Get started today by signing-up for your own, no strings attached, Dash free trial. After you do that make sure to follow us on Twitter or like us on Facebook for a constant stream of news and tips on how to get the most our of Dash and all of your business communications needs.
