Back in April (April 13th, 2010 to be exact) I posted a video I came across by Tristan Barnum, product marketing director for Digium Switchvox. The post was 5 Things You Didn't Know about VoIP...but Probably Should! The video Tristan did was great, the way I framed it was ok...the response to my post was truly underwhelming.
In my research of VoIP and business phone systems I came across ITBusinessEdge. They did a 6 slide slideshow summarizing Tristan's video...and I think they did a great job! Going through the slides reminded me of how good the information contained there in is. As I am reading more and more on the web about Voice over IP serivces and information, I am coming to the conclusion that there are a lot of blogs out there writing really lame articles and whitepapers about VoIP so they can sell advertising space...and they don't actually know much about VoIP or SIP or other four-letter words I'll refrain from posting.
If you need help with VoIP, IP PBx Phones and Phone Systems, SIP or Unified Communications, please check out this slideshow. It doesn't cover everything, but what it does cover is excellent.
Watch the "5 Things You Need To Know About VoIP" slideshow!
And please, be sure to say thank you to the people at ITBusinessEdge and let Tristan know what a stud she is!
This is a really cool video I came across from Digium. Learn key foundational principles about VoIP, its costs, implementation, and what is perhaps one of the most shocking statements about VoIP that anyone who has done any research into the issue will ever hear! (well, maybe not that extreme..but it is a little mind-bending)
Click her for the video! --->
After you watch the video, let us know what you think!
- What would you add to that list?
- What else do people need to be aware of?
If you want to know what I think about it, get my white paper here.
Yes, it is a shameless marketing ploy by one of our partners. And yes, I feel really good about taking advantage of it...I mean, seriously...you could win a free phone system! It's worth up to 10 grand and it really is an awesome business phone system.
So, here's how it works, per the Digium site:
Is your phone system driving you crazy? Do you wish you had a more effective communications solution for your business? We're looking for companies that have had it up to here with their key systems and PBXs! Tell us your story and you could win an EXTREME PHONE MAKEOVER!
There you have it - tell your story, get a free business phone system (hopefully)
And don't keep this to yourself. Who do you know that...
- Has a phone system that sucks so much you hate it!?
- Runs a non-profit that is in dire need of a phone system?
- Has a call-center that is about to go under because of their technology?
- Is a social- entrepreneurial start up/business and needs to upgrade/get a business phone system?
- Is a great business, but is bleeding money because of poor productivity, lack of employee accountability, and a need for a robust computer interfacing communications system?
Let them know about this chance too! (It never hurts to share)
Best of luck!
This just in...one of our partners, Digium, is giving away a business phone system worth 10-large. I'll have more info up here soon, but for now, if anyone wants to get going on it...
