VirtualPBX is happy to announce its winning of the 2019 WebRTC Product of the Year Award from INTERNET TELEPHONY Magazine and WebRTC World.
This marks the second consecutive year that the VirtualPBX Web Phone has been recognized for its excellence in browser-based communications.
Advancing the WebRTC Market
As in past years, the 2019 WebRTC Product of the Year Award highlights the products that companies have developed for use in a broad range of communications activities.
Other recognized organizations include those that have built a visual interpreter for the blind and online meeting spaces.
VirtualPBX addresses its business communications audience with Web Phone, which was recently released as Version 2.0. The upgraded version improves upon the essential telephone functions that were available in the initial version.
Now customers of the VirtualPBX Business Phone System can use Web Phone to take and transfer calls, access individual user’s address books and call history, manage voicemail, and access the VirtualPBX Status Site through an updated desktop and mobile interface.
Further additions, including Texting (SMS) capability and CRM Integration are forthcoming as Web Phone features.
2019 WebRTC Product of the Year Reactions
VirtualPBX COO Lon Baker expressed his excitement about the award win and spoke further on the extensibility of the Web Phone as a platform that will continue to evolve to meet customer demands.
“Winning the 2019 WebRTC Product of the Year is an excellent comment on how hard the VirtualPBX team has worked to bring Web Phone into its current state,” Baker said.
“It was a great phone to begin with. Now, with Version 2.0, it’s even better because of its extensive set of core features. We’re all looking forward to additions like SMS and CRM that will help our customers make the most of their phone plans.”
The free, full-featured Web Phone comes with every VirtualPBX Phone Plan and runs on Chrome and Firefox browsers. It can compliment a host of office phones or work as a user’s primary phone on their computer or smartphone.
Rich Tehrani, TMC CEO, noted that innovation in the communications market helped the award winners stand out.
“It gives me great pleasure to honor VirtualPBX as a 2019 recipient of the WebRTC Product of the Year Award,” Tehrani said. “Our judges were very impressed with the ingenuity and excellence displayed by VirtualPBX in their groundbreaking work on the Web Phone.”
Innovation and continued effort will allow future Web Phone releases to continue to improve and, perhaps, reach future awards milestones like this year’s.

If you haven’t yet started with VoIP, this could be your chance. Choose VirtualPBX, or switch from your current provider, in our July 2019 Sale and you could save $2-5 per user for the life of your account.
This sale works a little differently than our other promotions. When you sign up for VirtualPBX in the month of July, you will save $2 on Basic, $3 on Essentials, $4 on Advanced, and $5 on Enterprise for each user you add.
No promo code to enter. Only flat-rate discounts for everyone on Monthly and Annual subscriptions.

Savings Upon Signup
To give you an idea of what you’ll save at signup, consider this example:
You’re a midsize business of 25 employees. Each of those 25 are placed in an Annual Advanced account that affords them Unlimited Local Minutes and Automatic Call Recording.
Normally, this signup would cost $24.99 per person, resulting in a monthly total of about $625.
Our July 2019 Sale drops that cost to just $20.99 per person. This lowers your monthly cost by $100 to just $525.
Life of Your Account
This sale extends beyond your initial signup. Unlike other promotions you may have seen, you can expect to receive those same savings for as long as you’re a VirtualPBX customer.
Consider again that your midsize business has purchased the annual Advanced account.
Our July 2019 Sale will have dropped your yearly costs by $1,200!
Choose Our July 2019 Sale Now
Ready to get started with the VirtualPBX Business Phone System?

It’s another exciting week here at VirtualPBX. We’re happy to announce our receipt of the 2019 Unified Communications Product of the Year Award, presented by TMC and INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine, for development of our SIP Trunking service.
TMC, an information technology marketing brand, and its IP communications magazine, INTERNET TELEPHONY, announce the top Unified Communications products every year in their Product of the Year awards. This year’s honored developers include some of the biggest names in the communications market. We’re in good company and have worked tirelessly to bring our customers a service that’s award-worthy.
What do we bring to the table? Our VirtualPBX SIP Trunking service lets companies transform the state of their PBX servers and get away from costly necessities like PRI lines. We help businesses make partial and complete transitions from on-site telephone service to hosted, VoIP telephony.
What Our SIP Trunking Service Offers
Let’s take a quick overview of the highlights that made TMC CEO Rich Tehrani exclaim, “Every year, I am more and more impressed by the innovative options available to clients in search of unified communications. The 2019 winners are driving the industry forward, and I can’t wait to monitor the continued success of these companies.”
Private branch exchange (PBX) servers are not only expensive, they come with a maintenance costs like upkeep and the purchase of PRI lines to handle telephone calls. We let companies keep their PBX investment and replace their PRI lines with flexible, cost-effective SIP trunks that only demand a small cost-per-minute fee.
PBX servers and their attachment to PRI lines can also create headaches regarding uptime. Dropped calls and static may regularly mar users’ calls. We offer the Five Nines of uptime to make sure businesses can reach their customers without added stress.
Easy Call Volume Expansion
PRI lines come only in large blocks of service – 23 lines at a time. With VirtualPBX, you start with 20 channels and 5 burstable channels. Then you can purchase lines individually if you need more.
No More Long Distance
Long-distance charges on a business’s phone bill can be a shocker. You shouldn’t have to pay more because you do business across the country. VirtualPBX SIP Trunking lets you call across the U.S. for a single, affordable rate.
Join Trunking and VoIP
For many businesses, use of a traditional PBX can feel like a trap – stuck in the same loop of high costs and restrictions. VirtualPBX lets businesses use SIP Trunking in conjunction with our Dash Enterprise Phone Plans to have some calls exit through trunks and others through VoIP. No matter their journey, though, everything exists in a single account.
Product of the Year in Our Eyes
VirtualPBX CEO Paul Hammond had this to say about our award win:
“It’s a great honor to be recognized among the best in the telecommunications industry.
“We strive to make the best SIP Trunking product on the market. The validation of winning the 2019 Unified Communications Product of the Year Award lets us know we’re on the right track and primed to impress those who matter most: our customers.”
With only a couple years of service under its belt, VirtualPBX SIP Trunking has risen to a point of recognition. This, however, doesn’t mean its done growing. You can get to know it further in our SIP Trunking Whitepaper.
We look forward to assisting many more businesses with this service in the years to come. Helping them fully realize the cost savings and features available with hosted phone service.
