You had feedback and Sangoma listened! Sangoma recently updated their Peace of Mind Support Package in an effort to consolidate their offerings and make things more consistent for customers.

A POMPs package is an optional support agreement that is purchased by the customer from Sangoma for a single PBXact system. The purchase of a POMPs base package, which is sold as Gold or Platinum and any additional Add-On Feature packages entitles the customer to certain services to be rendered by Sangoma. Some of my customers wonder what has changed and how the two support levels different. So, let’s check out the two support packages in the chart below.

The communication expenses remain the top expense list for most of the hotel businesses despite that more hotel guests are using personal mobile devices than ever before. In order for hotels to survive and become competitive in the hospitality industry, switching to a VoIP system becomes a wise choice in terms of cost savings, work efficiency, and customer experience.

Recently, I have received some inquiries from customers about the 3CX hotel module and the Xorcom Complete Concierge. They were interested in learning about their features, highlights, and the differences between these two solutions. So, let’s dive in together!

If you are one of the many people who handle an overwhelming amount of incoming calls for a living then you can understand that sometimes what your phone comes with, it’s always enough.

Every now and then we think of how much easier our jobs would be if we just had a little extra help. An example would be having two monitors on your desk instead of one. Another might be having your own stapler instead of having to walk to the printer every time you needed to staple something.

All of these things are nice to have, and sure, they would help make our lives easier. But, the reality is that we can probably still do our daily tasks even without them. And if …

If you are looking for new office phones but are keeping a budget in mind, then the new Fanvil X2P should be on top of your list.

This new release comes with everything you’d expect from a high-end model VoIP phone, for the price of an economy phone. And it looks great too!

One of the coolest things I’ve seen in a long time is that Fanvil actually swapped out the handset on this phone and gave it the ability to use a footswitch to answer and end calls! I feel like this is something that has not been done before and would be a great fit for a call center environment!

If you need more convincing, just watch this short video we put together …

A while back we published this video above on setting up the Adtran Total Access 908e as an FXS gateway. To recap a little, an FXS gateway allows you to connect analog phones or stations, to a VoIP based system. It does that by providing an analog interface like an FXS port to which you connect your analog phone, and through the use of witchcraft, translates the signal from analog to digital.

To clarify a little bit more if you’re new to this technology: when we talk about analog gateways, we are generally referring to two types of interfaces, or ports; FXS and FXO.

FXS stands for foreign exchange station, but to get to the points, it’s what PROVIDES dial tone to a device …

#2 How to Hide or Show the Skype

In the past, I have written blogs about the importance of customizing your workplace. One of the best ways to do this is bringing in pictures from home, and even changing the wallpaper on your deskphone!

This process usually falls into the category of “basic” when dealing with most IP phones, and the same goes for the Yealink CP960. The only difference is this is a conference phone, and not like;y to be on your desk!

What I thought was cool is that even though this is a conference phone, and most likely to be used by several different people around the office, it is still fully customizable. Everything from the wallpaper to the ringtone to so much more!

For this blog, we will …
