Today we want to talk a little about design choices and IVRs. First and foremost, we don’t want to leave anyone behind during our XiVO adventure. XiVO is a platform that adjectives really can’t describe. It’s that good and, frankly, we’re having a hard time believing it’s been around for almost a decade and nobody much talked about it. Leave it to the crazy Americans to only look at stuff from the U.S. of A. Funny thing is that the… Read More ›

But, if you had the winning Superfecta ticket, you made a $316 profit on your $1 bet. For the rest of us, there’s still a Superfecta win to celebrate, and this one’s free. We’ve begun porting CallerID Superfecta to the XiVO platform and today we’ll share that code with you together with lots of other goodies in our… Read More ›

Embed from Getty Images The one thing we’ve learned over the past decade is that everyone’s telecommunications needs are different. We began the Incredible PBX™ project by offering a script for PBX in a Flash™ that enhanced its functionality by adding three dozen applications for Asterisk® plus a rock-solid, preconfigured firewall. We expanded on that initial design by offering installers to support both Elastix® 4.0 and even the FreePBX® Distro and AsteriskNOW. But many asked for something more. Some wanted… Read More ›

We’ve spent a good bit of time documenting a dirt cheap way to learn about VoIP in the Cloud with our Incredible PBX offering using a $10.50 virtual machine at CloudAtCost. Is it production ready?
