Take Charge of Your Product: Control Your VoIP Business

Posted by Daniel McFarland on Oct 22, 2015 2:49:00 PM

"There are so many worlds, and I have not yet conquered even one."

– quote on Alexander the Great, Plutarch.

For Alexander, control was everything. Conquering all and uniting everything under one flag was his goal. Upon hearing that there were an infinite amount of worlds that existed in the universe, he wept. Although he conquered so much, there was still much to be had. In the business world, you too should keep that mindset. Be a conqueror, grow your empire, and stay in control.

Chat with Nat: New BackOffice Feature and Other Wholesale VoIP News

Posted by Natalie DeCario on Sep 26, 2014 2:40:00 PM

Welcome back to another weekly Chat with Nat where I get to fill you in on some great wholesale VoIP news. I want to first mention that on Monday we’ll have a brand new employee starting in our Support Department. His name is Tim Klein and we’re excited to have him start and get up to speed.

Speaking of other new things, this week we launched a Carrier Ranking System for our wholesale VoIP BackOffice. This new system is going to be great for our customers because they’ll be able to see very specific key metrics for each carrier such as their last outage or average time for port completion. They also see where that carrier ranks and they have the ability to add their own one to five start rating. For more information on the Carrier Ranking System, take a look at this blog post we published yesterday.
