5 Signs It's Time for Your Business to Upgrade to Hosted PBX

Posted by Erica Berry on Wed, Dec 16, 2015 @ 04:00 AM

With phone support and service at the heart of your business' communications, having an efficient phone system is critical. Traditional landlines can slow your business down with outdated features and tied up lines. In today's fast paced world, keeping communications open and accessible between you, your employees, customers and business partners not only allows for quicker turn around and happy clients, but also can save you money in the long run. However, it's clear that not all phone systems are created equally.

Give Thanks For Free Calling And Texting

Posted by Ian LeWinter on Thu, Dec 3, 2015 @ 02:27 PM

Poor Thanksgiving — dissed again this year by over-zealous retailers putting sparkly red bows on flat-screen TVs and earnest bakery cafés who just love decking the halls. This year I saw Christmas decorations showing up in August. August!! Whatever happened to Labor Day and Halloween, let alone Thanksgiving!? Are we expected simply to skate over these long-treasured holidays, straight over Thanksgiving and land in the heart of the holiday shopping season? Are we to forget the time-honored traditions of hand turkeys, food fights, and turducken altogether?

How Hosted PBX can Help Your Business Save on IT Costs

Posted by John Lee on Wed, Nov 25, 2015 @ 04:00 AM

With all the advanced tools for connecting with today’s customers, it just isn't conducive for businesses to stick with old technology. If you and your staff still use traditional landline phones, you could unknowingly be limiting your business. That's especially the case if you plan to expand soon or want to provide more freedom to your employees to use mobile devices. The costs of maintenance alone on physical landline phones are already problematic. With a hosted PBX system, your business can not only boost efficiency but also save on IT expenses. 

Here's how switching to hosted PBX can help your business eliminate IT expenses:

Mobile Usage Stats, U.S. vs China

Posted by Ian LeWinter on Thu, Nov 12, 2015 @ 04:00 AM

The worldwide mobile landscape is in a state of constant change. Even as I was researching this post, mobile usage stats have increased, leaving me with no alternative but to qualify all data herein with “as of this writing.”

Despite the constant flux (or maybe because of it), the numbers for mobile usage in China are fascinating, especially when compared to the same statistics in the U.S. We Americans tend to think of ourselves as technically competent people (whether it’s true or not) but some of these stats may surprise you.

Voxox Was Made To Share - Share Location, Share Everything!

Posted by Ian LeWinter on Thu, Oct 22, 2015 @ 04:00 AM

When I was a kid I hated sharing. I was always happy sharing the other kids’ toys, dolls or games, but when it came to my stuff — forget about it! Where this attitude came from is anybody’s guess. My family was always generous. My friends were quick to offer anything. But when I was called upon to share, I suddenly “heard my mother calling,” gathered up my things and took off. What a brat, right?

Family Values

Face it. Summer is ending. Autumn is approaching. Everyone seems to be OK with this (what choice do we have?) but close on the heels of autumn come the holidays. Sorry to be the one to break it to you but someone had to do it. We only have a few short weeks before the chaos begins. Every year I’m surprised over how quick retailers are to start their promotions. Last week I got an email from Pier One announcing their 2015 Christmas collections.

Free International Calls Made Simple

Posted by Ian LeWinter on Thu, Aug 27, 2015 @ 04:00 AM

At the end of the month, I leave for a two-week vacation in Italy. It’s exciting, despite the crazy amount of planning that goes into a trip of this magnitude. I bought a Fodor’s Guide to Italy that’s — no joke — 985 pages! There are myriad decisions to be made, from the critically important, “Where are we going to stay?” to the most mundane, “What socks should I bring?”

From Telegraph to Free Calling App: Great Milestones in Telecommunications

Posted by Ian LeWinter on Thu, Aug 13, 2015 @ 11:06 AM

Wait … Who invented the telephone?

It’s always a little bit disconcerting when you find out things aren’t what you thought they were. Classic example: Pluto. Growing up, we were taught that Pluto was the ninth planet, discovered by Clyde Tombaugh in 1930. I wonder how Clyde would have felt about its downgrading to planetoid in 1992? Suddenly Pluto is no longer a planet? Appalling. Years later, tomatoes were called into question. Fruit or vegetable? When I was told that a hare isn’t a rabbit, well, that’s when I lost it. There’s a vague feeling of betrayal that comes with these revelations. I was taught this stuff in school, and now it’s wrong?
