VoIP has become huge in the past decade or so, and as such it's a fantastic time to become as Internet Telephony Service Provider, or an ITSP for short. For businesses, VoIP is quickly replacing traditional phone service as the norm. The industry has been doing great as a whole: worldwide, the telecommunications sector revenue grew a huge 8% from 2012 to 2013, a total of $68 billion. In addition, global VoIP subscribers in the residential sector totaled 212 million in 2013, an increase of 8% from 2012. These numbers are promising, so if you're looking to get on board to provide this service, take a look at what you need to do!
Our Guest Post today comes from Nick Nielson, the Outreach Coordinator at WhichVoIP.com. The infographic below was created to show the different types of telephony setups, with a focus on VoIP, that are commonly used in the business environment.
As the Wholesale VoIP market continues to grow and set records, more entrepreneurs and competitors are entering this industry. It is easier than ever to become a telecommunications provider, which means many operators are going through a telecommunications learning curve. VoIP Innovations has recognized this market trend and has built a unique wholesale VOIP BackOffice (Titanium III); providing aggregation, automation, and innovation. The focus of our service is to provide ITSP’s and resellers the coverage, tools, and automation they need to more efficiently manage their business. Recently, VoIP Innovations released yet another set of Titanium III BackOffice features, but where and how do they decide what the market wants?
This post is brought to you by Nick Medina, VP of Business Development for VoIP Innovations.
Working for North America’s largest Wholesale VoIP Provider, I often get the chance to engage with customers who are excited about launching their new VoIP business. Many times they have bought a switch and are extremely focused on the technical operations of the business. However, when I ask who their target market is, I quite often hear, “We are hoping to signup everyone that needs phone service.” Unfortunately, hope is not a strategy.
It has been estimated that Obama and Romney spent over $2 billion dollars trying to win the 2012 Presidential election. Many industries saw a piece of the $2 billion, one of them being the telecommunications industry, which benefited from the intense demand for predictive dialer services.
In 2008, VoIP Innovations' parent company, ABG Capital, started a popular Thanksgiving tradition, their 1st Annual Turkey Bowl. Employees wanting to participate were put into teams, and spent an afternoon playing flag football games. This activity quickly became a favorite among the ABG Capital team.
This year, the team carried on the tradition and hosted their 5th Annual Turkey Bowl last Friday. Four teams played until there was a champion. Afterwards, the participating employees chose an MVP and Hands of Stone award. Those winners will be announced at the ABG Capital Holiday Party next month.
ABG Capital would like to take the opportunity to wish you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving. We are truly grateful our valued customers and dedicated employees.
