Posted by Tristan Barnum

Big news today! We've officially announced Cloud Phone, a new virtual PBX service designed for one-10 person businesses. Cloud Phone’s features go beyond the scope of Voxox's consumer applications, but are more basic than Voxox's hosted IP-PBX and SIP trunking business phone solution.

The all Web-based service provides a dedicated business telephone number, supports multiple users per account, and integrates sophisticated call routing and voicemail-to-email delivery within a sleek, simple design. It's accessible and cost-effective for even the smallest of businesses! We have three subscription options, ranging from $19.95 to $49.95 and a 30 day free trial.

We'll be demo'ing Cloud Phone this week at Mobile World Congress held in Barcelona, Spain, February 24-27, 2014 (Booth #1E43 – Hall 1) and at the Channel Partners Conference & Expo held in Las Vegas, Nevada, February 26-28, 2014 (Booth #4036).
