Voxox®, the most comprehensive cloud-based rich communication service for consumers and businesses, today announced that TMC, a global, integrated media company, has selected two Voxox products -- Cloud Phone and Hosted PBX – as winners in 2014 Communications Solutions Product of the Year Awards.
“Cloud Phone and Hosted PBX were designed to offer easy-to-use phone services for small to medium sized businesses at a fraction of the cost of traditional business phone systems,” said Bryan Hertz, CEO and co-founder of Voxox. “We are delighted to see these products recognized as they both enable busy entrepreneurs to save valuable time on managing their IT and instead focus on the big picture of running their business.”
Cloud Phone is a virtual PBX service that provides ”micro-businesses” (one to 10 employees) with a dedicated toll free or local business telephone number that can be forwarded to a user’s existing phone, including mobile and landline phones. The dedicated number supports multiple employee extensions per account, sophisticated call routing, and transcribed voicemail-to-email delivery, all managed within a sleek, simple web-based user interface. As an HTML5 application, Cloud Phone offers a seamless user experience for toggling between mobile and desktop environments with no specialized equipment or skills required to operate. Cloud Phone scales quickly and allows for an easy transition to an advanced VoIP system that supports hundreds of phones if business growth demands.
The Voxox Hosted PBX offering caters to businesses with a physical location (or locations). The customer can purchase or lease desk phones from Voxox, and the rest of the responsibilities of maintaining and supporting the phone system are covered by Voxox and managed remotely via the cloud. Hosted PBX allows small and medium-sized businesses to have an advanced telephone system at an affordable cost, without the upfront investment in expensive premise-based systems.
Both Cloud Phone and Hosted PBX are powered by the Voxox proprietary unified communications Service Delivery Platform, which enables these solutions to offer innovative features at highly competitive rates to customers. Developed in-house, this sophisticated cloud technology enables Voxox to bypass expensive licensing fees that competitors have to pay, allowing Voxox to offer its customers some of the most competitive rates in the industry.
“Congratulations to Voxox for receiving a 2014 Communications Solutions Product of the Year Award for not one, but two entries,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO of TMC. “Cloud Phone and Hosted PBX have demonstrated true innovation and are amongst the best solutions that facilitate voice, data and video communications brought to market in the past twelve months. I look forward to continued excellence from Voxox in 2014 and beyond.”
Voxox is an innovator in unified cloud communication solutions for consumers and businesses. For consumers and its operator partners, Voxox delivers cutting-edge mobile and desktop applications that integrate voice, video, messaging, fax, media sharing and more.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
