Q4 2020 Quarterly Newsletter From December 15, 2020
We wish you, your loved ones, and your colleagues a happy holiday season. We are very thankful for each and every one of you and hope you are staying healthy and safe. Here’s to 2021!
Key Highlights From Q4
Back in October, we released a new app for anyone tired of screening potential spam, anonymous numbers, and other bothersome calls. In just a few clicks, the new Blacklists app will block unwanted calls before they ever ring your device. The app helps you manage unwanted calls and makes it easy to ensure only important calls are coming through. All you have to do is create a list and add the numbers you want to block. Then, you never need to worry about those numbers again! See just how easy it is here.
In November we hosted another successful Product Focus Group. After getting an incredible amount of helpful feedback during our first ever focus group in October, we wanted to see if a second round would live up to the first, and boy did it ever! A huge thank you to everyone who participated and shared their thoughts. Because they are so helpful and engaging, we’ll be hosting monthly Product Focus Groups starting in January. We hope you’ll join us! Sign up for our Product Feedback Group here so you don’t miss the invite.
We sponsored the Cavell Group’s Cloud Comms Summit European Series in December, which took us on a virtual trip to France, Germany, Benelux, and Spain. Each event explored key market insights, best practices, challenges and solutions in those areas. We’re always excited to be part of Cavell Group’s events, meet and mingle with industry colleagues (even if virtually), and learn from Cavell’s group of experts. We look forward to attending more of their events in 2021!
In Case You Missed It
It wouldn’t be a 2600Hz newsletter without some media and press updates. Here’s some news and a few marketing highlights from Q4:
Our COO & Co-Founder Patrick Sullivan chatted about all things UC with UC Today publisher Rob Scott in this video interview.
The Xarios team invited us to join them for an article about call center analytics called The Writing’s on the Wall — Call Center Analytics During Remote Work.
UC Today wrote a few new articles featuring 2600Hz, including 2600Hz Staying Close — Even Though Remote Holidays, 2600Hz Has Evolved UC Automation in Four Major Ways, and 2600Hz and OneBill Partner on Integrated Revenue Management.
The OneBill team joined us on the Free UC w/ 2600Hz podcast to talk about how streamlining your billing operations and revenue management can enhance your customer experience, and our very own Emily Ransford joined for an episode all about the 2600Hz Community.
