With this new WebRTC (Web Real Time Communications) product from VirtualPBX, VoIP customers will never have to pay a penny for a VoIP device ever again.
San Jose, California, April 10, 2018 — Today VirtualPBX launched the totally new and proprietary Web Phone which is a browser-based, cloud communications tool that can replace VoIP devices for good. The VirtualPBX Web Phone is built off of the open source WebRTC (Web Real Time Communications) code available in most modern browsers and is available with zero software to install or devices to purchase on Google Chrome and Firefox web browsers. Because the Web Phone is totally native to the web browser a user chooses to use, it also allows customers of the award-winning VirtualPBX Dash Business Phone Service Plans to be literally placing and receiving telephone calls within minutes of signing up for a plan.
“The VirtualPBX Web Phone is the definitive answer for businesses looking to completely cut the cord,” explained Lon Baker, VirtualPBX’s COO, “And because this is still a fully-functioning VoIP device delivered for free over the web, adding the flexibility of the platform came at zero expense to the features and performance of the phone.”
This new option for VoIP users to replace any existing physical phones or softphone software frees them from the burdens of both updating and maintaining firmware in devices and potentially paying licensing fees from various software options. Because the Web Phone draws from the pooled minutes from an account, its impact on traffic over an account is identical to other VoIP devices, as well. Additionally, because the VirtualPBX Web Phone operates over popular web browsers that are also free to all users like Firefox and Google Chrome, it’s an option on virtually any connected device on the planet. Mobile browsers, laptops, and desktops, and any other place a web browser can be opened is an option to send and receive calls on the VirtualPBX Web Phone. And in staying true to the tradition of offering enterprise-grade features with all of the products and services they provide, VirtualPBX hasn’t stripped the Web Phone of any of the core functions that make VoIP so versatile.
“We’ll always have a need to offer customers the best VoIP telephone hardware and Softphone options available,” added Baker, ”But the speed and freedom of the new Web Phone is exactly what more businesses are looking for, and now they can stop looking!”
The VirtualPBX Web Phone is available right now for free and can be used with any VirtualPBX Dash Service Plan and can be added to any account’s list of devices within minutes.
