Awards and Promotions

I have a friend who is spending his first holiday season with his new spouse this year, and I am always interested to learn how different families approach the season. Just as we are a giant melting pot of cultures, holidays, and celebrations, the way we mark those occasions can vary widely, as well. This is, of course, one of the things that make our home so wonderful and, if nothing else, at times quite interesting. One tradition that I still have a difficult time reconciling myself with, though, is the one where some families open a gift on Christmas Eve, rather than waiting until the morning. Of course, while that may be anathema to my family, and me it in no way means that our own pastimes aren’t looked at with equal side-eyes. In the spirit of acceptance of all traditions, regardless of when you do or do not like to give and receive gifts, we teamed up with our friends at Snap Recordings to once again offer you something very special as part of our favorite VirtualPBX tradition.
Holiday Traditions That Won’t Get Re-Gifted
From now until the end of the year, you can get a free holiday recording from the professional voice talent at Snap Recordings. This year, we’re even extending the offer to include both VirtualPBX customers and the general public alike, because it is the season of giving, after all. This means that one of the Hollywood voice actors from the professionals at Snap Recordings can be your voice of the season for free. Recordings that can normally cost up to several hundred dollars are already completed in several different varieties and available for you to download right now, just by heading to the Snap Recordings and VirtualPBX mini site. Simply head there, download the recording of your liking, and upload it into your Dash business phone system and you’re all set to put the holidays on cruise control.Seasons Greetings and Well-Earned Time Off
In addition to having the simplest way to manage and upload your new, free, Snap Recordings Holiday Message, Dash also makes it easy to skip out of the office a little early, too. We all know the many mobility and location-flexibility benefits that come from Dash’s cloud-based features, but the platform does more than even that. Sure, it’s nice to get to work from the road to get a jump on the holidays and time off, but when the office is definitely shut-down for a period, Dash also lets you manage that with ease, too. Setting holiday hours, out of office notifications, and generally managing all of the schedule changes that occur this time of year is a breeze with the full complement of Dash Support Guides and Videos, so there’s nothing to hold you back from getting the most out of your time with loved ones this year.
The Real Holiday Traditions Are At Home
Getting to break away from the grind and get close to those who matter most to us is what this season is really about. That’s why, though it may seem like something insignificant at first, we put as much time and energy into designing the tools you need to completely shut yourself off from work to be with them as we do into the ones that let you work hard the rest of the time. So please, enjoy our gift to you from us and Snap Recordings and get your free holiday message here. And if you need any help uploading it into your Dash system or anything else over the holidays, just know that our lights will be on all night long through the holidays, just like they are 365 days a year. That means that you can always reach out to our Expect Support Guides if you need anything between now and, well, ever.
Rest easy by the fire with your family this year knowing all is well with your phone system. And, of course, thank you as always for being the most important part of our VirtualPBX community, and have a safe and happy holiday season!

We’re thrilled to announce that we’re ending the year on a high note, it seems, because we were just named the winners of the 2017 TMC Unified Communications Excellence Award! The specific area that the award was given to highlight is our totally reimagined approach to SIP Trunking which, apparently, really won over the review board. In act, in our recent SIP Trunking press release about the award, you can see some of the glowing commentary that the recently revamped technology garnered.
How SIP Trunking Won the 2017 Unified Communications Excellence Award
SIP Trunking is a technology that was developed to help companies that had already made large investments into on-site PBX’s take advantage of some of the mobility and customization that can only be provided by a cloud-based telephone system. SIP Trunking was an essential bridge to the advantages of a hosted PBX when larger organizations realized they needed to access them but that were also still financially beholden to their on-site hardware investments. We go into much finer detail on the underlying technology of SIP Trunking and how it generally relates to hosted PBX in our KP360 Tech Talks Blog for anyone looking to learn more, but the way we delivered SIP Trunking to a modern audience is what really earned us this award.
The Modern Face of SIP Trunking
We developed our SIP Trunking platform to satisfy the most rigorous technical demands of our largest enterprise customers. But to differentiate it from other options and to have it dovetail with the well thought out design of our total line of user-centric Dash VoIP Plans, we packaged it as cleanly as possible and in a way that no other option on the market can offer. Like with all of our products, we didn’t deliver a finished product until we knew it would put the needs of our end users at the forefront. The employees and admins of all of our business telephone systems, their needs and pain points, and our two-way feedback channel that goes into the development of all of our products are solely responsible for the win of the 2017 TMC Unified Communications Excellence Award. Without these insightful and fruitful relationships, none of this could have been possible.
That being said, it is with great gratitude and honor that we accept this award on the behalf of the hundreds of dedicated contributors in our BETA community, the thousands of companies they represent, and the millions of customers that we hope to help them service at the highest level. Thanks to you all and thank you to TMC for recognizing all of the hard work that went into our newly redesigned SIP Trunking platform.

We’ve told you about it, you’ve waited for it, you’ve set reminders for it, and the time has finally come! It’s time for you to shake off your tryptophan stupor and get your head in the game for the massive Cyber Monday Sale. We’ve never done this before, and we’ll never do it again, so if you want to upgrade your entire business communications system for prices that you’ll swear are typos, now is the time to act. For only the remaining hours of today, this day only and possibly never again, we are giving 20% discounts on all Dash Plans as well as including one free month of VirtualPBX Concierge Service!
What This Means in Real Dollars
We’ve never been shy about how much our customers save when they switch to VoIP. Why should we? When you have something that has helped thousands of companies save literally up to 80% over an on-site telephone system, you really need to talk about that. Think about your telephone bill and then take 80% off of what you’re currently paying. Pretty substantial, isn’t it? That’s the type of benefit we’re talking about with switching to VirtualPBX and a cloud-based telephone system. But the great thing is that savings on service are just the beginning because the flexibility, features, and around-the-clock 24/7 support that comes with every Dash Basic, Pro, and Unlimited Plan makes switching even more valuable. And now, for only a few more hours, you can save an additional 20% up front by taking advantage of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity with the VirtualPBX Cyber Monday Sale!
No Time to Lose
This Cyber Monday Sale is only going to last for Monday, November 27, 2017, and only for the 24 hours as recognized here at our headquarters in San Jose, California. That means that you’ve only got until 11:59 PM PDT to save and the clock is ticking. Plus, remember that all plan sign-ups today during the sale get a month of VirtualPBX Concierge Service for free to streamline your transition and make your configuration a no-brainer, just like this deal! Act now and leave making a leftover turkey sandwich for later because this deal, much like Aunt Patty’s Pumpkin Pie, is going fast and won’t last forever!

If you’ve noticed the changes in your local supermarkets, shopping malls, and coffee shops, then you’re very well aware that the holiday season is upon us. While I would argue that technically, it isn’t, the retailers of the world seem disinterested in the specifics of the calendar and many of whom are well in the swing of things for their biggest seasonal sales bumps of the year. We don’t blame them at all, in fact, many of our own customers have been working hard to prepare for their own Small Business Saturday events. That’s why we’re going to let you in on a little secret we’ve been keeping for a while now…
VirtualPBX Cyber Monday Sale!
That’s right! We’re having our largest sale ever on November 27, 2017, the Monday after Thanksgiving and more commonly known as Cyber Monday. We’ll be having savings of 20% on all Dash Business Phone Service! We’ve never done anything like this before but wanted to make this Cyber Monday one you’ll never forget. Plus, in addition to the great savings that will only be available for one day (Cyber Monday, to be exact), we’re also extending incredible deals that include our award-winning VirtualPBX Concierge Service, too. Add that to the existing deals we have on VoIP phones and hardware currently running as part of our online store grand opening, and November can be the biggest month for savings that your business has ever seen!
Mark Your Calendars
Again, the VirtualPBX Cyber Monday Sale is only going to last for one day and one day only, so you definitely won’t want to miss out. Let us help you out by sending you a reminder, simply sign up for notifications at the bottom of the promotion page, and we’ll keep you in the loop for the big day. Plus, you can always get the low-down on our latest news and promotions by following us on Twitter and Facebook, too. No matter how you remember to check out the deals, though, make sure to enjoy your pumpkin spiced everything in the coming days because you’ll need all of the energy you can get to snag all the savings we’ll offer your business!

We’ve just wrapped up construction on our shiny new online retail shop and we’d like to invite you to come check it out! Because we understand that a house warming party is more fun with some door prizes, though, we’ve decided to make the new online store grand opening well worth your while. Right now, you can enjoy up to 20% off selected VoIP phones and devices for the next week! Don’t delay, though, because these deals won’t be around forever!
What Makes VirtualPBX VoIP Phones so Great?
Well, besides the current deal of up to 20% off on all of our in-stock VoIP phones, adapters, and other VoIP equipment, our list of recommended hardware is special in another way, too. Because we’ve been in the VoIP industry for as long as there has been a VoIP industry, we know a thing or two about how to spot quality hardware. Every item on our recommended list of devices is subjected to the most stringent battery of assessments to test for things like sound quality, durability, reliability, and overall value compared to products with feature parity. As a result, we’ve assembled the most highly scrutinized list of products for businesses with budgets ranging from bare bones to bigwig. And no matter which items you want, everything is already priced to please even the most restrictive of accounts payable clerks with our new online store’s grand opening savings! To make it even easier, we’ve even extended the promotional savings to every phone you can find right here on VirtualPBX.com just like the Yealink phone below, too!
Act Fast, Tell Your Friends
The only thing better than getting a killer deal is being able to share your good fortune with other people, too. That doesn’t mean we’re suggesting that you outfit your colleague’s office with new VoIP phones along with your own purchases (we’re not going to stop you from doing that, either, though…), but it does mean you can share these deals with them online. But don’t wait, because the grand opening savings on our new online shop are only good for a short time. Then we just stay open, really. So go ahead and pick out your favorite phones today and if you have any questions, make sure to ask us through the site’s online chat or on Twitter or Facebook and we’ll be happy to help!
