On the 10th Day of Christmas, VoIP Gave to Me... Business Phones

10 Lords a Leaping!

There is a theory that The 12 Days of Christmas carol has two levels of meaning: the surface meaning, plus a hidden meaning known only to members of the Roman Church in England long ago. Each element in the carol was a code word for a religious reality which the children could remember. It is explained that "10 lords a leaping" is a reference to the Ten Commandments. 

Or that could all be wrong and it's actually the name of a cocktail created at the Hilton Hotel.

On the 9th Day of Christmas, VoIP Gave to Me... Switchvox Integration

Nine Ladies Dancing!

Broad minded as she is, my Honey said "No, no, no, there will be no gaggle of lasses delivered to our doorstep this Christmas...or any other Christmas, for that matter!" I briefly thought about re-gifting, but that wasn't such a good idea.

VoIP Microsoft Office Integration

So, VoIP, give me something more practical that won't get me in trouble.   

I know, how about Microsoft Office PBX integration?  It doesn't seem to make any sense that Microsoft Office isn't tightly integrated with your business communications system these days.

On the 8th Day of Christmas, VoIP gave to me....

Eight Maids a Milking!  I grew up on the farm, and I can speak from experience that's a lot of milk!  The average cow in the United States produces 6.2 gallons of milk per day. That means 48 gallons of milk per day (and they don't take holidays either!).

At the real risk of lactic overload, VoIP re-gifted the maids and provided me with the delightful alternative of Wideband Audio on my VoIP telephone system

Seven Swans a swimming...  I hear that swan meat is supposed to be quite tasty and from ancient times to the nineteenth century, roast swan was on the menu for the King's Christmas dinners and other royal banquets. Since the nineteenth century, the turkey has replaced the swan as the bird of choice for fall and winter holiday feasts.

Six Geese a Laying

Okay, we are now halfway to Christmas with the gaggle of six geese. I frankly can't think of a worse gift to receive than half a dozen honkers. Even as a replacement for a Rottweiler, you really only need one. So VoIP, give something else to me.

Call Center

The VoIP gift of the day is a charming and efficient call center. TeleDynamic provides telephone system consulting as a part of our business.

On the 4th Day of Christmas, VoIP gave to me...

Well, I'll be darned if I don't learn something new every day. All these years I thought they were four Calling Birds, but upon further research, the original verse described "Colly Birds." In old England, a blackbird was called a Colly Bird.

Once my true love discovered that four imported blackbirds would be out of the budget, she figured I'd be better off with a new audio conference bridge

On the 3rd Day Of Christmas, VoIP Gave to Me...

Three French Hens

Since we have limited room for livestock here at our office, the care and feeding of three french hens would be problematic.

Switchvox Premise PBX

Rather, my true love suggested the gift of a Switchvox Premise PBX. The system has a very powerful Unified Communications portal called the Switchboard. It provides a phone book that allows you to "click-to-dial" from your computer.

On the 2nd Day of Christmas, VoIP Gave to Me...

My true love thought that it would be very helpful that when a phone call comes in, a Google map pops up on my screen, showing the geographic location of the caller.  

Map on Incoming Call

Knowing where the call is originating can tell me quite a bit of information: 

  • Do I know a customer in that area?

On The 1st Day of Christmas, VoIP Gave to Me...

My true love dispensed with the Partridge and provided something that I've been yearning for years. Scurrying about, especially during the busy holidays, checking my email and voicemail, voicemail and email. It's enough to make a robot cry.

VoIP Unified Messaging & Unified Communications

With my new VoIP business communications system, I can check my voicemail while checking my email messages, too.

The Future of IT Careers in California

This past November, Georgetown University published a study on career projections. In this study, Georgetown University highlighted technology job growth. Specifically in California, there is projected to be a 27% increase in IT jobs by 2018, the single largest growth of any career sector.

The reasons are obvious as technology continues to spread to every aspect of modern business.
