Vocalocity, the leading cloud-based phone service for small business, today announced its Vocalocity Desktop solution was selected as an INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine Product of the Year. The selection caps a phenomenal year of growth and accolades for the only VoIP communications provider devoted solely to small businesses and startups.
INTERNET TELEPHONY annually recognizes the most innovative products by bestowing its esteemed Product of the Year Award to the most deserving companies. Magazine editors honor IP communications solutions that demonstrate vision, leadership and attention to detail.
“I am happy to grant Vocalocity with a Product of the Year Award. The editors of INTERNET TELEPHONY have verified that Vocalocity Desktop displays quality and innovation plus provides real needs in the marketplace,” stated Rich Tehrani, CEO of TMC. “I would like to congratulate the entire team at Vocalocity for their commitment to advancing IP communication technologies.”
The tools of the Vocalocity Desktop help small businesses gain intelligence about their customers quickly by automatically pulling crucial information from an incoming caller. Vocalocity Desktop comes configured with free LinkedIn, Google Search, and Caller Locator plug-ins. Once downloaded, Vocalocity Desktop runs in the background on a Vocalocity customer’s computer. When an incoming call is registered, Vocalocity Desktop will automatically display information about a caller which is populated through the application’s various plug-ins. Vocalocity customers can instantly see a caller’s approximate location based on area code, the weather in that location, the caller’s information from Google, and his or her LinkedIn profile.
Vocalocity Desktop was one of many innovations announced last year including apps that allow Android and iOS devices to have command and control over the office phone system. Plug-ins like Microsoft Dynamics that extend large enterprise CRM functions to a small business environment are also available.
“Since our inception, we’ve had a vision to become the best communications provider to small business,” says Wain Kellum, CEO at Vocalocity. “This latest accolade from INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine is definitely a milestone toward reaching our vision and a testament to a very hard working and innovative team. We are enjoying the acknowledgement but realize the best is yet to come.”
In addition to receiving INTERNET TELEPHONY’s Product of the Year for 2011, Vocalocity was also recognized on the Deloitte Technology Fast 500 – recognizing the fastest growing technology companies in the U.S. For the second year in a row, Vocalocity also earned a position on the Inc. 5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The company also earned the Clean Air Campaign’s Telework Catalyst award for a successful teleworking program for employees and managers.
