Happy Friday the 13th, everyone! It sure seems like there have been a lot of these lately, doesn't it? Pay no attention; we'll think positive thoughts and avoid breaking any mirrors, walking under ladders, and crossing any paths of black felines. Instead let's focus on recapping this week and the VoIP-related matters at hand! The sooner you get through this business day, the sooner you can go home, curl up with some popcorn and get spooked by a villain in a hockey mask. We present to you, Chat with Nat: Delights + Frights on Friday the 13th.
In Case You Missed It
There is no need to be superstitious about cyber security threats; they are very real indeed, and strike real fear in business owners. Our post this week, Top Five Cyber Security Threats Every Organization Must Consider, is one that all business owners should read and keep at the forefront of their minds. In case you missed it, take a look now.
A Scary Good Time at ITW2016!
ITW is the world’s largest gathering for the global wholesale telecommunications community and its tradeshow just wrapped up this week. We were excited to be there involved in the industry on an international level and especially travel to the great city of Chicago. Of course we had to take in the view of Lake Michigan (not Camp Crystal Lake) and eat deep dish pizza, too. Thanks to all of you who stopped by our booth to chat with us and see demos of our BackOffice--and of course get massages and pick up some fun swag! Nick, Nat, Tim, and Corey enjoyed meeting you!
New VIU Videos
You have nothing to fear here--these are no scary movies; just two newly created educational videos that we uploaded to our VoIP Innovations' University YouTube page. Go ahead and click!

New! Customer Feedback System
Today marks the release of our new and improved Customer Feedback System! Your feedback always has and always will be important to us and this is why we believe we have made substantial improvements to the way we handle your requests moving forward. Here are some of the changes we made to the form:
- A 7 business day turnaround to receive a response
- Email notifications upon status changes
- Ability to add notes to a pre-existing feature
- Ability to 'upvote' features in evaluation that have been submitted by other customers
This is frighteningly fantastic, right? Check out our wiki article on the topic, written by Technical Support Representative Cameron Nutter, for more information!
Please note: Since the system has been revamped, any feature requests that were submitted prior to 4/1 have been closed, but you are more than welcome to resubmit them if necessary.
Spring Promotion...Halfway Over!
As we mentioned last week, due to such an overwhelming popularity, we will be extending our 25¢ Toll-Free, 25¢ Local DID, and 65¢ E911 deals until May 31! Along with all of this, we will also still be offering Free Porting and No Activation Fees until May 31 as well. It would be horrifying to let this deal pass you by...
Have You Used our Referral Program Yet?
Our referral program is live! Once a customer spends $25, if they refer someone they get $25 in credit AND the person they referred gets $25, too. So make sure to run and tell your friends! Just don't run through the woods to get to them; that never ends well.
A Visit from Future Entrepreneurs
Last Wednesday, we welcomed the students of the Canon-McMillan School District’s Entrepreneurship Program to our office. Twice a year, as part of our community outreach efforts, we welcome the class and their teachers to our office for an educational field trip. As pictured, President Jason Voorhees Tapolci and Marketing Communications Manager Natalie DeCario were two of the featured speakers. We hope the students had a fantastic day with us, as we are already looking forward to their next visit!Still on the Search...
Don't be scared...we still have the Technical Support Representative available, so apply if you think this position would suit you!
