Digium® Expands Listing Opportunities for AsteriskExchange and Waives Listing Fees for a Limited TimeNew Switchvox Solutions Category Adds Value for Users, Integrators and Developers
March 02, 2011
Digium®, Inc., the Asterisk® Company, announced it is adding a new listing category to AsteriskExchange dedicated to custom applications for Switchvox™, the company’s line of VoIP business phone systems. Switchvox provides an easy way to create custom applications that integrate the communications system with business processes to improve productivity. Individuals and companies who are already developing for Switchvox are encouraged to promote and potentially sell their applications in this new category on AsteriskExchange. To jump-start the development and promotion of the Switchvox Solutions category and the AsteriskExchange, the standard fees are being waived for all Asterisk and Switchvox-related listings.
“An important differentiator for Switchvox is our XML-based Extend API, which makes it easy for developers to integrate Switchvox with any web application, and that ultimately benefits the customer by giving them access to a broader range of customized features and add-ons,” said Leslie Conway, vice president of global marketing at Digium. “Adding a special Switchvox category in AsteriskExchange makes it easier for end users to find the applications they need.”
AsteriskExchange is a dynamic marketplace offering everything needed for success with open source and unified communications. Users can quickly find both free and commercial Asterisk- and Switchvox-related products. User reviews, ratings and popularity rankings, along with an advanced search tool simplify the process of finding the right product. The list of AsteriskExchange categories includes IP phones and gateways, speech recognition and synthesis engines, voice prompts, video integrations, call center solutions, vertical application packages and more.
Initial Switchvox applications are available now through the AsteriskExchange, such as a custom Microsoft Dynamics CRM integration solution created by Stauffer Technologies, Inc. (STI), a Switchvox reseller and Digium certified partner based in Cleveland, Ohio. “We’re excited to have a place to showcase our custom integrations and to offer a solution that we know will benefit other companies,” said Ken Stauffer, owner of STI. “Switchvox is an important part of our portfolio and extending its functionality helps us deliver increased value to our customers.”
Other applications listed in the new Switchvox Solutions category include:
