It might be hard to believe that there are only a couple of weeks left in 2013. It’s been an exciting year and an exciting week yet again in the CaaS field. Here are some of the top stories we’ve been following this week.
Vocalocity (News - Alert), which is owned by Vonage, was named by Deloitte as one of the top tech companies in its Technology Fast 500 list.
“Over the past few years, Vocalocity has grown at an astounding rate, and we credit that success to our customers who choose Vocalocity to power their businesses,” Wain Kellum, former Vocalocity CEO turned Vonage president, said.
“We pride ourselves on being partners with the small and mid-sized business community, and this award acknowledges that commitment,” he added.
The Romanian company 4PSA has announced that they’re introducing its flagship cloud VoIP service, VoipNow Cloud OnDemand, to the U.S. west coast, with a base in Seattle.
“The decision to introduce the new cloud region follows the significant interest of our partners in providing VoipNow services from a West Coast facility. Studies evaluate the growth trend for the US Unified Communications (News - Alert) market at a constant pace of about 19% year-on-year, adding to $2.5B in 2013. With a growth rate above the industry, VoipNow Cloud OnDemand is the perfect choice for both experienced providers and those who are just starting out,” 4PSA CEO Elena Carstoiu said.
PanTerra has also introduced a new version of its administration tools for its unified cloud services.
"PanTerra (News - Alert)'s Admin 5.0 cut our administrative overhead considerably on our most recent multi-location customer migration off of legacy equipment," said Bill Sutherland, president and CEO of Sutherland Networks.
Interactive Intelligence (News - Alert) also announced that it had obtained PCI (News - Alert) DSS Level 1 certification for its CaaS offering, meaning that customers could trust it to safely process credit cards.
"Validation of the Interactive Intelligence CaaS environment's compliance with PCI DSS ensures that a company's payment network meets industry best practices and security controls that card brands have established to keep customer credit card data safe and secure for digital-based processing, storage and transmission," said Intersec Chief Information Security Officer Jeff Tutton.
We wish you the happiest of holidays here at TMCnet and hope you stay tuned throughout the New Year for more exciting CaaS news.
