RingByName’s partnership with VTech, the world’s largest manufacturer of cordless phones, VoIP devices, electronic toys and other fancy electronic stuff, brings the best value to you and your business. VTech has recently leveraged their long experience making business phones under the AT&T brand (you may have heard of those guys) to release a line of IP phones under the VTech brand. RingByName is proud to partner with them and provide you with the most advanced VoIP phone service.
The new VTech IP phones are great. They look great, they work great, and they’re priced at the value-end of the market. Their IP desk phones provide all the needed features and their cordless phones offer business people that aren’t anchored to a desk a great solution for staying connected anywhere in the office. But their coolest innovation is their conference phones. Ever been on a conference call with a group of people and you couldn’t hear everybody? What about being in a group and needing to huddle over a conference phone to all be heard on the other end? VTech has applied their cordless phone expertise to solve these problems with wireless microphones! Their conference phone has four wireless, rechargeable microphones that can be placed around the room or even held in the hand of the person talking. We have one in our office and we love it.
At RingByName we’ve long believed that a phone needs to be reliable, easy-to-use, and inexpensive since all the brains of the phone system should be in the cloud — not the phone or some other box stashed somewhere in your business. VTech agrees — which might seem surprising. The truth is that for quite a few years the “hardware guys” like VTech have fought the cloud as a threat to their ability to sell expensive and complicated devices. Those expensive devices allowed their distributors to make big money upfront and the complexity supported their service model of charging for setup and maintenance. So what happened? Did the hardware guys just suddenly change their mind?
I think it’s safe to say that they had their minds changed for them. It’s simply not possible for an on-premise phone system to keep up with the power and flexibility of a cloud-based system. A cloud-based solution can be updated regularly and easily; is easy to use and manage from anywhere via a web browser; and scales effortlessly. So the hardware guys decided to “join ‘em” and we’re happy they did. It’s an indisputable endorsement of the cloud model for business phone systems when the part of the industry that perhaps is the most threatened — by being forced to offer low-cost, “dumb” endpoints rather than expensive, fancy phone systems — comes around to wholeheartedly supporting the cloud model.
