For the small business, it’s a big decision. Stay with your old dial tone system because you know how to work it, or jump aboard the new-age train and get a Hosted VoIP provider with all the new phone system features. The statistics show that most are moving in the direction of the Cloud, but there’s still a big problem. Most companies with a new-age Hosted VoIP system aren’t really utilizing it to its full (or even half of its) potential. You end up with a Cadillac of a phone system that you’re trying to push up a […]

Seriously. Vader probably had Jive. All the signs are there. Video chat, multiple locations, custom sound files—plus you never see him manage it. And you know Vader would never have had a direct line to get to him—it would have been an auto-attendant set up to screen his calls. Darth has always struck me as the type that would want control of his system. I mean, he could have one of his commanders manage it for him, but I’d hate to see that guy get choked if he messes it up. You may not think you relate to Darth Vader. […]

In fact, if you can think of a way to make phones or PBX management more boring, there are some competitors who would likely be interested in talking with you.

With any other phone system, you decide how a phone call routes with either a drop-down menu, an automatic default, or a […]
VoIP is all over the place. It’s the hip new technology, so it’s being adopted in a lot of different ways, and nobody’s really doing a good job of explaining those options. Do I want hosted, or on-premises, or what? Can I just buy a magicjack? How does it even work? It can feel like a frustrating nightmare to try and map the landscape. Let me share an industry secret: the big money in the industry is in the enterprise—companies with hundreds or thousands of phones who want to know a lot of technical details about how a system could […]
