VirtualPBX Softphone App Wins 2015 Innovation Award

Softphone App Honored for Exceptional Innovation by INTERNET TELEPHONY & TMC

VirtualPBX Softphone App Wins 2015 Innovation AwardSan Jose, CA July 7, 2015 — VirtualPBX announced today that TMC, a global, integrated media company, has named the VirtualPBX Softphone App as a 2015 INTERNET TELEPHONY TMC Labs Innovation Award winner presented by INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine.

The INTERNET TELEPHONY TMC Labs Innovation Award honors products that display innovation, unique features, and significant contributions toward improving communications technology. The awards are bestowed to those companies demonstrating ground-breaking contributions to the industry.
“Mobile is no longer a third screen and, for many people, it’s the primary access device for their personal internet usage,” said Lon Baker, VirtualPBX COO.

When used in conjunction with VirtualPBX hosted telephone service, the VirtualPBX Softphone App is essentially a mobile office in the palm of an employee’s hand. Available for free on the iTunes App Store and on Google Play, the softphone app makes any computer, tablet, or smartphone into a feature-rich VoIP extension.

“We’re in the business of helping professionals work the way they want to,” Baker added, “so it only makes sense to mirror the convenience and flexibility of a mobile platform as part of our unified communications solutions for business.”

Able to mirror all of the same features as the robust suite of VirtualPBX’s cloud-based phone systems, the VirtualPBX Softphone App can receive calls dialed to a business number and extension. Furthermore, as an added value for satellite employees, the softphone app can also mask outgoing calls as originating from an office number, therefore protecting the private contact information of the employee using it.

“The INTERNET TELEPHONY TMC Labs Innovation Award represents the best and the most unique products and services that this industry has to offer. VirtualPBX has proven their commitment to quality and the further development of the IP communications industry through its VirtualPBX Softphone App,” stated Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “Congratulations to the entire team at VirtualPBX for earning this great honor. I look forward to seeing more innovative solutions from them as they continue to contribute to the future of IP communications,” Tehrani added.

The 2015 TMC Labs Innovation Award winners will be highlighted in the July/August issue of INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine.
