"Originating Profit" Get the eBook to Build a Successful VoIP Business

Posted by Daniel McFarland on Nov 30, 2015 12:00:00 PM

“When I look back at the difficult times, I remind myself that I used to be the type of person who had to learn things the hard way. As a child, if my mom told me not to touch something hot, I had to touch it to see for myself. After living much of my entrepreneurial life in this manner, it finally occurred to me that there had to be a better way.” – Jason Tapolci, President and CEO of VoIP Innovations.

Despite being occasionally burned by a shoddy deal or falling victim to brief mishaps, Jason Tapolci continued his stride, improved the business model of VoIP Innovations by leaps and bounds, and transformed his company into a wholesale VoIP industry leader.

Inspired by the teachings of “Scaling Up”, by Verne Harnish, Tapolci's eBook, “Originating Profit: Overcoming Challenges in VoIP Entrepreneurship”, shares how he turned VoIP Innovations into a success. Available for free from VoIP Innovations, you can download your own copy of “Originating Profit” in PDF format.

Creating a Successful Telecommunications Business (Part 2): Support

Posted by Daniel McFarland on Nov 19, 2015 10:30:00 AM

According to Jason Tapolci, President of VoIP Innovations, support is not limited to helping your customers through call centers, but it involves "non-human interactions as well." Human interaction is important and it goes back to the people that you hire when creating the best support team as possible, but having non-human interaction, such as thank you messages and a flawless ticketing system, can make or break your company.

9 Features You Need to Manage E911 Numbers

Posted by Daniel McFarland on Nov 3, 2015 11:30:00 AM

In case of an emergency, you should always be prepared. E911, or Enhanced 911, is the term used for emergency dialing over VoIP. Dialing for emergency respondents over VoIP works the same way as traditional means, just dial 9-1-1. However, the emergency dispatch process works a little differently than it would if the call was made on a land line. As you could imagine, E911 uses IP phone technology to trace a call.

Due to the mandates imposed by the FCC, requiring interconnected VoIP services to feature E911, you probably already know the importance of these emergency services. But what about managing these services? Read on to see how these nine management features will help you to get the most out of your service as a VoIP provider.
