PBX Parachute Recognized for Industry Innovation

PBX Parachute Recognized for Industry Innovation

San Jose, CA, February 3, 2016 —VirtualPBX announced today that TMC, a global, integrated media company, has named PBX Parachute as the recipient of the 2016 INTERNET TELEPHONY Product of the Year Award.

“It gives me great pleasure to recognize VirtualPBX with a 2016 Product of the Year Award for its commitment to excellence and innovation,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “In the opinion of our distinguished judges, PBX Parachute has proven to be among the best communications and technology solutions available on the market. I look forward to continued innovation from VirtualPBX.”

PBX Parachute is a hosted emergency failover system that protects businesses when they need it most. By mirroring the function and hierarchy of an existing, on-site telephone system, PBX Parachute can replicate a business’ total communications system within seconds of a failure of the primary system.

“Companies that rely on a physical phone system are exposed to the risks of disruption or inaccessibility of those networks,” said Adam Denter, Director of Professional Services at VirtualPBX. “PBX Parachute allows for these companies to choose which essential employees stay connected, even when they experience a failure of their primary system or if they can no longer access their offices.”

Most commonly used as part of a comprehensive business continuity plan, PBX Parachute helps companies stay connected to their clients, employees, and most importantly, their productivity all over the nation. Deployed during extreme weather conditions, emergency scenarios, or even through infrastructure renovations, PBX Parachute is the perfect cloud-based compliment to any physical telephone network.

The winners of the 2016 INTERNET TELEPHONY Product of the Year will be featured in the 2016 March issue of INTERNET TELEPHONY Mgazine.
