Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) continues to gain momentum as legacy phone branch exchange (PBX) contracts run out and business owners realize the cost savings and features available through VoIP.

After 4 failed attempts to reach emergency responders, Kari Hunt tragically died of her injuries.

It’s likely that some of those features were critical to your upgrade while others went unused. The choice of a phone system was critical, because it required a sizable capital investment. Today, with the introduction of Communications Platform as a Service (CPaaS), a cloud solution offers a communications upgrade that is flexible and agile, while supporting an increasingly mobile staff.
Today we're wrapping up the 2018 TADHack Global Hackathon! Congrats to the organizers, our co-sponsor, and the participants for making this another successful hackathon. There were over 3,000 participants and through their hard work over the weekend the teams were able to complete over 100 hacks.
The teams built solutions that ranged from a smart motorcycle rider airbag and jacket, to an encrypted prescription service, to an SMS notification system that monitors humidity, temperature, movement, and noise. Though all of the hacks were unique and well designed, there could only be a few winners.
We chose Global Winners as well as Location Winners for South Florida. Our decision was based on the creativity, innovation, and real world application of their solutions. We're proud to say that these services were all built using our Apidaze communications APIs. Be sure to check the links to watch the pitch videos for each solution.
We are pleased to announce a new strategic partnership with KPN, a leading Dutch telecommunications company and IT service provider. As a result of this partnership, our CPaaS product, Apidaze, is featured in the KPN API Store.

A 2015 “Forecasting Utilization of Toll-Free Numbers” report from the North American Numbering Plan Association (NANPA) estimated that by Q1 2018, 100% of toll-free numbers would be in use with a 66% probability of exhaust. In comparison, 85% of numbers were in use in Q2 2015 with a less than 1% chance of exhaust.
