While some may argue that having remote workers limits dialogue and idea sharing, this is no longer true with the latest telecommunications technology. Using a hosted phone system such as GenVox, managers, coworkers, and clients can easily and efficiently communicate with offsite staff as if they were in the office.
In the first part of “What Does a Phone Number Say about Your Business?” we discussed Direct Inward Dialing (DID) numbers and toll-free numbers as two possible options your business might pursue when enhancing your company’s accessibility. In part two of this blog, we will explore two additional types of numbers: vanity numbers and virtual numbers.
When you commit your business to a specific type of phone number, whether it’s a DID number or a vanity number, you are making a choice that will impact your visibility and accessibility for many years to come. But how should a company decide what kind of phone number to get?
GenVox, one of TelWare’s hosted business phone solutions, has recently released a new mobile app update! The version 2.0 update offers better user experience and higher quality visual aids for its users. It also has many backend updates for communications and connectivity.
Our 3CX customers will be excited to read about the brand-new features available in the V16 release of 3CX. As usual, TelWare has been testing the beta version internally prior to release, ensuring the best possible consumer experience. Now that the new update has been implemented, we are thrilled to inform you of the latest highlights of 3CX Version 16!

TelWare has been amazing to work with.
