Posted by Natalie DeCario on January 14, 2019 at 6:00 AM

As with any technology cycle, providing Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) is becoming a challenge in terms of differentiating yourself from other providers. The solutions offered may be identical and delivered at a fairly standard price. You try to attract customers on service and reliability, but your competitors are taking the same approach. In order to gain new business, you either have to give up your margin or differentiate yourself somehow. 

If you want to stand out from other providers, offer Communications Platform as a Service (CPaaS) to customers. Combining CPaaS and UCaaS offers a truly integrated solution and provides value to enterprises.

Get Ready for Rich Communication Services

Posted by Ivan Serrano on January 8, 2019 at 1:46 PM

Billions of people and businesses connect via text message every day. Despite still being the most universally used feature on smartphones, the way the world communicates has vastly gone past the capabilities of standard SMS. Unlike other apps such as WhatsApp and WeChat, standard SMS does not support group messaging features, animated stickers or read receipts. To combat these issues, Rich Communication Services (RCS) was created. With RCS, SMS text messaging will be replaced by a protocol with fewer restrictions.

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.

What Does Kari’s Law Mean for E911 and My Business?

Posted by Sara Warhold on November 15, 2018 at 8:20 AM

The original version of this post contained an incorrect surname for the victim. We regrettably apologize for the mistake and any stress it has caused. 

What is Kari’s Law?

In 2013, Kari Hunt's husband stabbed her to death in a motel room. Her young daughters were in the room, on the other side of the bathroom door trying to call 911. Because the motel had a multi-line telephone system (MLTS) that required hotel guests to dial a 9 to reach an outside line, the girls were unsuccessful in reaching help. After 4 failed attempts to reach emergency responders, Kari Hunt tragically died of her injuries.
