Digium, Inc., an Asterisk Company, announced that Switchvox, the company’s turnkey voice over IP (VoIP) unified communications (UC) solution designed for small- to mid-sized businesses, grew more than 30 percent in 2010, making it the company’s fastest growing solution.
Switchvox, which is based on Asterisk, an open source telephony engine, provides enterprise-class features at a price businesses can afford, the Company said. New features included integrated iPhone and BlackBerry mobile applications.
According to a release, the popularity of Digium and Switchvox with analysts and industry organizations showed continued growth in 2010. For the fourth year in a row, Digium was included in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Corporate Telephony. Additionally, Digium was selected for several awards, most notably Switchvox received Everything Channel’s Top MidMarket Value Product Award at the Midsize Enterprise Summit.
At the beginning of 2010, Digium released enhancements to Switchvox, bringing many of the benefits of Switchvox from the existing web interface to the handset, the Company noted. Later in the year, Digium extended key functionality to smartphones with its free Switchvox Mobile applications that seamlessly integrate the Switchvox phone system with the iPhone and BlackBerry smartphones. Along with these new features and business benefits, customer productivity gains and cost savings contributed to Switchvox’s continued growth.
“We’re very pleased, at the current rate of growth we’re experiencing on our Switchvox business,” said Leslie Conway, vice president of global marketing at Digium. “We understand that businesses have to be smart with their expenditures and select phone systems that deliver the most value. It is critical that their system not only serves their needs today, but also provides the flexibility to grow with them tomorrow. Switchvox does this and more.” More information: www.digium.com
