Having visitors drop by the office is nothing new at VoIP Supply, and last week we got to spend the day with SimpleWan’s OEM Manager, Josh Haselhorst.

Josh started off the day by leading some extremely valuable training sessions for our Sales and Marketing Team. Then we were able to enjoy a delicious lunch! Somewhere in between all of the action, we were able to steal Josh away for a quick interview to give you a preview of what they have to offer and what the upcoming webinar will be focused on.

Josh was able to sum up the SimpleWan mission and give some insight on how great it has been to partner with us here at VoIP Supply!

Please check out the interview above, …

Have you ever looked at your desk phone and wondered why there is a blinking red light? Or maybe a flashing green light? I feel like when it comes to weird blinky things there are two different types of people. Either you just say “Ehh, it’s always been that way” or “why is this blinking! It’s never blinked before!”

Either way, if something is grabbing your attention, then it is probably a good idea to know what it is trying to tell you. Even if it means knowing how to make it stop so the guy next to you with OCD leaves you alone.

No matter what phone you have on your desk when it comes to notifications they are all generally similar. So let’s …

Here at VoIP Supply, we know that not every business is the same.  So, when it comes to VoIP service, the most important thing to keep in mind is the size of your business. Keeping this in mind will help guide you when looking to switch to VoIP.  What does that mean exactly? Well, there are several different options to consider when looking to deploy and maintain VoIP in your office. In order to help better understand what options you should be considering, we put together this video to help narrow down your search!

Being one of the leaders in VoIP, we get a lot of questions in regards to VoIP service.  It is never an easy thing to understand and it takes time to learn the ins and outs.  Thankfully, you have us!

There is no quick answer when it comes to the cost savings of switching to VoIP, so we put together a short video to help make you aware of how your calling habits can help you determine just how much you will save!

Statistically speaking, most of us will spend around 90,000 hours of our lives working. Some of us will spend most of that time in an office, or at a desk. What I can’t tell you is how much of that time you will spend daydreaming about being somewhere else.

While I’m sure it would add up to a couple thousand hours, one thing we can say for sure if that it is important to have things with us at work that remind us why we get up and go through the grind week-in and week-out.

Maybe a picture? Or a souvenir from a memorable trip? No matter what it is, you have to have a little bit of your own personality on your desk, but …

If you have a desk phone, then chances are you have a headset. I can’t even imagine someone who still uses their handset at work. It is a thing of the past, and honestly, maybe we should get rid of the handset all together.

Okay, maybe that is going a little too far, but having a headset for your desk is something everyone should (and most likely does) have. It is something that is relatively inexpensive and can make your day flow much easier.

There are all types of headsets out there.  Some people are fine with having a basic wired headset, while other people can’t live without the freedom of going wireless.  The preference comes down a matter of how often you get up

What if I asked you what your most important piece of technology is? You would have to say your smartphone, right? Smartphones have become an essential part of our lives. They are almost an extension of ourselves!

If know everyone, at one point or another, has had that sinking feeling when you reach for your phone and it’s not there. It has to be one of the worst feelings in the world! And thinking about how upsetting forgetting or losing your phone makes you feel has to make you wonder how we ever got through a day in our lives without one!

Now that I have you checking to make sure you have your smartphone on you, my next question is when is it hardest …

It is no secret that entry-level IP phones are packed with features. They even do more than regular analog phones, period. Even as you climb up the IP phone scale to an executive level phone, it always seems like the phone will have some features that you could never imagine using.

But as we all know, there will come a time where you will need to use something that you never thought you would ever use, and this doesn’t just apply to your desk phone! This happens all the time in our everyday lives. As much as I’d like to blog about the time I actually needed to use a check to pay for something, we have to stick to the world of VoIP!

How

This day and age, it is hard to imagine a business that runs successfully without the Internet. It’s the lifeblood of any sustainable organization, and lately, it goes far beyond having a website and being able to send emails.

Most businesses need the Internet to function. If you are running an e-commerce business then having, or not having the Internet is life or death. If you are running a brick and mortar business, then chances are you use VoIP for your telecommunication needs.

These examples of how having the Internet for your business are extremely important, but the Internet dependability still goes even further! While the possibilities of what the Internet can do for your business are endless, this blog will stop at WiFi.

Everyone knows by now that the way we work has changed from the past. The days of having to be in the office all the time or waiting a full day for a response to an email are long gone. Now, more than ever, people are bringing their office with them on the go, and now responding to important messages can be almost instantaneous.

We are able to achieve this style of work largely because of the popular BYOD trend that has been taking over businesses. Tons of new gadgets are coming out faster than we can buy them, which has made working from home or on the road simple. It seems that even with all of these new toys there will always be some …
