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.

My team and I had a great time meeting a lot of potential VoIP Service Providers and getting to know what area(s) they are looking to improve or issues they are trying to find a solution for.
