VirtualPBX Receives the 2018 WebRTC Product of the Year Award

WebRTC Product of the Year AwardVirtualPBX Web Phone Honored for Exceptional Innovation

San Jose, California, July 12, 2018 — VirtualPBX announced today that TMC, a global, integrated media company helping clients build communities in print, in person and online, has named the VirtualPBX Web Phone as a 2018 WebRTC Product of the Year Award winner.

“It gives me great pleasure to honor VirtualPBX as a 2018 recipient of the WebRTC Product of the Year Award for their innovative solution, the VirtualPBX Web Phone,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “Our judges were very impressed with the ingenuity and excellence displayed by VirtualPBX in their groundbreaking work on the VirtualPBX Web Phone.”

The VirtualPBX Web Phone is the simplest way to make a phone call as it requires no additional hardware or software to begin and because it is browser-based, users never need to manage any updates. Introduced just three months ago in April 2018 and available for all VirtualPBX Dash Business Phone System users for free as part of their plan, the VirtualPBX Web Phone has been adopted quickly by existing customers. It has also gained significant traction in the VoIP market, where it’s ingenuity and low-barrier access outpaces the competition.

Says Luis Daniel Garcia-Ruiz, VP of Devops at VirtualPBX of the 2018 WebRTC Product of the Year Award, “What is especially exciting about receiving this award so soon after its induction is that we’re just getting started. My team has already begun work on version two of the VirtualPBX Web Phone, which will add new functionality and features to the already impressive interface.”

Features already present in the VirtualPBX Web Phone include Call History, Company Directory, Call Transfers, Call Holding, and Quick Key Shortcuts. Minutes used are pulled from shared plan minutes and the VirtualPBX Web Phone can be used as a device in any call routing scenarios already present on a customer’s account including cell phones. The only thing needed to get started is a VirtualPBX Dash Business Phone Plan.
