By: Alon Cohen Though I have used VoIP for many years, we always had two “regular” home phone lines delivered by the “regular” phone company. One served as our main home phone line, the other as my fax line. But now I have gone cold turkey on both and am all digital. I have found out that I really can not justify the expense on these phone lines, and by smartly moving my numbers to Phone.Com Virtual Office and Phone.com Home Phone and by simply managing my numbers on-line I can now not only save money but I can also gain

In fact an experienced IT manager will try to satisfy the company needs five-ten years a head. Yet as budgets are shrinking the two requirements seems to collide. While at the same time the operational requirements mount. If you are a PBX distributer you are probably feeling the price and budget

Written by Brian Scott, COO Phone.com and Phone.com Labs The internet needs a free, universal registry of telephone numbers. That’s sort of tangentially related to ENUM (Telephone Number Mapping), but I would guess that legacy telecom is too snooty to cooperate with any sort of movement like that. It would be wonderful if, after receiving a nuisance call, or identifying a fraudster/phisher, I could look up the company that provides service for that phone number, perhaps with an abuse contact that I might actually have a conversation with. I see a lot of parallels between abuse of phone numbers and

Using Software as a Service (SaaS) as your office Phone solution “Software as a service” (SaaS, typically pronounced ‘Sass’) is a model of software deployment where an application is hosted as a service provided to customers across the Internet. By eliminating the need to install and run the application on the customer’s own computer, SaaS alleviates the customer’s burden of software maintenance, ongoing operation, and support. Using SaaS also can reduce the up-front expense of software purchases, through less costly, on-demand pricing.” See Wikipedia for more. Phone.com is committed to freeing companies from traditional telephony infrastructure, its failure rates, hidden
