  1. 2022 Q2 Newsletter From July 7, 2022 We can’t believe another quarter has gone by and that we’re halfway through 2022 already! We hope that everyone is having a great start to the summer. As always, we’ve been busy and are excited to share these updates with you. Highlights From Q2 In April, we published a new podcast with Xarios Technologies that provides an update on the strategic partnership we launched between KAZOO and Dimensions in March of 2020. This episode focuses on how this partnership has evolved to include more robust call reporting and analytics that provide insight into anything from Call Center metrics to SIP trunk usage. We also touched on the role these data and reporting tools will play in the hybrid or remote workforce. If you would like to be featured on the In the Cloud w/2600Hz podcast or have an idea for an episode, reach out to us at marketing@2600hz.com! The month of May was all about KAZOOcon for everyone at Team 2600Hz! The product teams across the company were heads down finalizing the new features and apps launched at KAZOOcon, while our engineers and QA team were hard at work ensuring they would be ready for the KAZOO 5.1 release. Barring a few hiccups we've all gotten used to with virtual events, KAZOOcon was a HUGE success thanks in large part to our amazing community of partners. If you didn't get a chance to register or had to miss some of the event, the full conference is available on demand here, so you can get fully up to speed on all the exciting new features coming to the platform! We wrapped up Q2 with some exciting inclusions in industry publications. Rocco Research included 2600Hz in their 2022 CPaaS Market Intelligence report, and UC Today featured 2600Hz in their 2022 UC Market Guide. It is always great to be recognized by thought leaders in the industry and even better when they are highlighting the true strength and flexibility of KAZOO!

Check out our Careers page and let us know (or forward it to a friend!) if you’re interested in joining our growing, distributed team.

Prior to Five9, Demetrio was the Director of Customer Experience for Cisco and Global Vice President of Professional Services for Broadsoft where he ran a 200-person team. In August we announced our partnership with TeamMate Technology to provide our customers with a Microsoft Teams direct routing integration. This integration offers a SIP trunk integration from Teams to KAZOO for making outbound and receiving inbound calls from within both the desktop and mobile Microsoft Teams application.

  4. Q1 2021 Quarterly Newsletter From March 30, 2021 It’s hard to believe that we’re almost at the end of the first quarter of 2021 — time flies! Spring has sprung, and we hope you’re having a great start to the new year. As always, 2600Hz has been hard at work which means we have lots of exciting updates for you.

We enhanced the page with more screenshots of our Call Center’s UI so you can see just how user friendly it is. Speaking of 2600hz.com, we’re in the process of expanding the site and, over the next few months, we’ll be adding a handful of new pages and resources. Be sure to keep an eye out!

And, in case you’re looking for tips on submitting or formatting a post in the Forums, we added those for you here. Just as in years past, 2021 is shaping up to be an extremely busy year. We’re closing out the quarter strong with a productive March. First, we released security enhancements to ensure our customers and their end users are even safer when provisioning phones. We also completed a multi-month project that involved upgrading our data centers so that our network is faster and more stable than ever. In addition, we were a Gold Sponsor of Cavell’s Cloud Comms Summit Europe, a multi-day event that convened Service Providers and vendors from across Europe and the US. Our COO and Co-Founder Patrick Sullivan discussed how Service Providers can stay ahead in a competitive market and joined other industry leaders for a panel discussion about innovation in the 2020s. 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.

  5. Q3 2020 Quarterly Newsletter From September 30, 2020 Fall is here and we only have one more quarter of 2020 to go. The 2600Hz team took no breaks this summer, which means we have a ton of exciting updates for you. One of the many things we did in Q3 was create a Product Survey Forum in our Community. Since nobody knows this industry better than you, we would love your input in guiding our roadmap, testing out our prototypes, and providing valuable feedback. You don’t have to be a current customer to participate in the surveys, so check them out and make sure to join the Community and follow the topic so you’ll be notified when new surveys are available. Key Highlights From Q3 Back in July, 2600Hz was named 2020’s Best Wholesale Cloud Communications Provider of the Year by a panelist of industry-leading analysts as part of the annual UC Awards! We are thrilled to be recognized for our innovation and growth, and are grateful for all of our partners. We couldn’t have done it without all of you! Learn more about the UC Awards and see a list of all the winners here. In August we announced a new and exciting partnership with OneBill, a leading billing and revenue management platform provider. Through this partnership, we’re bringing our customers a streamlined integration between KAZOO and OneBill’s platform. This integration enables our customers to streamline and automate order provisioning, billing, invoicing, and taxation to save time, reduce manual errors, and ultimately enhance their customer’s experience. Read more about it here. September was a busy month for us also, as we sponsored and attended the annual Cloud Comms Summit. We are always proud to be a partner of the Cloud Communications Alliance, and never cease to enjoy attending their events. The CCA, along with The Cavell Group, did a fabulous job putting on the multi-day virtual event where we gained a ton of valuable insights about the state of the market (which we summarized for you here). Not only that, but our very own Alisa Bartash had the opportunity to represent 2600Hz in the event’s Shark Tank competition — and won! Other New Product Releases & Updates CSV Onboarding App — Fast SmartPBX onboarding is now possible on all of our platforms with the CSV Onboarding app. It enables you to perform bulk uploads to create new users and associate SIP devices in one job, replacing the process of entering this data manually. Simply upload your csv file, confirm the record mapping is correct and voila! The users will be added to SmartPBX. To make it even easier, there is a .csv template you can download here in the community, and you can learn how to use the app with our video, user guide and FAQs here Dynamic Caller ID App — Also now available on all platforms, the Dynamic Caller ID app helps you and your customers ensure your outbound business calls are answered and reduce the likelihood of your calls being screened with Dynamic Caller ID. This application allows you to set unique rules that modify the caller ID display based on the outgoing phone in just three easy steps. You can set rules that match a feature code, area code(s), or a Regular Expression. Once set, each outgoing call that matches the pattern can display a modified phone number on the caller ID screen. Check out our video, user guide and FAQ here. 988 National Suicide Prevention Lifeline — The FCC has designated 988 as the new nationwide 3-digit phone number for Americans in crisis to connect with suicide prevention and mental health crisis counselors. All phone service providers are now mandated to direct 988 calls to the existing National Suicide Prevention Lifeline by July 16, 2022. 2600Hz has already implemented 988, so for customers using 2600Hz minutes, 988 will automatically route to the hotline. BYOC customers will need to implement it, and you can learn how to do so here. 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 Q2: Our COO & Co-Founder Patrick Sullivan was interviewed by Telecom Reseller’s Doug Green for this CCA podcast, where they discussed the benefits of adding a second UC platform. Listen to it here. UC Today wrote two new articles featuring 2600Hz, WFH Requires Mobile Stability Powered by Cloud and The Benefits of Enterprise Communications White-Labeling. The Xarios team joined us on the Free UC w/ 2600Hz podcast to talk about how call center analytics can transform your business. We also had an in-depth discussion about how coronavirus has changed telecom over the past six months and areas that need to be addressed moving forward. We wrote about the key industry insights from the Cloud Comms Summit and share how you can stand out and capture market.

  6. Quarterly Newsletter June 2020 We hope you, your loved ones, and your colleagues are doing well and staying safe. It’s been a busy quarter for 2600Hz and everyone on our team from Engineering to QA and Operations to Marketing have been working hard to bring you more tools that enable productive remote work. In case you missed it, we released a ton of new products, features, and functionality and we have a lot more great things planned for Q3. Key Highlights From Q2 As part of our commitment to enabling remote work, we reprioritized our roadmap and brought our customers the comm.io desktop app. Video conferencing, a WebRTC-based softphone (we call it a web phone), virtual faxing, and more are built in, giving users all of their personalized communication information and tools in one place, right on their desktop or laptop. Check out the new comm.io site to see all that it can do! What Do You Want In An Operator Console? We are continually enhancing our product suite so we can provide you with the best reseller and end user tools that will help your business be successful. We are going to start sending out product surveys to get your input and to help us identify exactly what you and your customers need. We’re currently working on improving our Operator Console and have a few questions for you based on your customer’s requests and feedback when it comes to operator and attendant functionality. Please take our short 6 question survey that won’t take more than 2 minutes of your time. Your response will make a difference! You can take the survey here. Other New Product Releases & Updates In addition to releasing comm.io, we rolled a TON of new updates, features, and functionality in Q2 and already have more in the works that we’re planning to roll out in Q3. In case you missed it, here are some of the exciting releases and updates from Q2: SMS — You can now send and receive SMS on most 2600Hz DIDs! Receiving inbound SMS is configurable via Webhooks and outbound SMS can be sent by utilizing our APIs or Zapier. If you have a Zapier account, you can connect SMS by Zapier with over 2,000 apps to create automations and custom notifications. Another great thing about SMS, you ask? You can send and receive SMS on softphones and any desk phone that supports message notifications! There truly are infinite useful and creative ways to utilize SMS...check out this blog for some interesting use cases and examples! Voicemail Transcription — This feature helps users stay connected by converting voicemails to text. Transcriptions can be emailed or viewed in the Voicemails section of Comm.io. The feature is powered by Google’s ARS system, so it has phenomenal accuracy. There is a fee for using this feature ($0.05 per minute) so it is off by default for all existing voicemail boxes. New voicemail boxes currently have the feature enabled (although we're going to be changing it to be off by default in the next update) so if you don't want to use it, you'll need to disable it. It’s easy to enable or disable — watch how to do it here! Announce-Only Voicemail Box — Perfect for closures and other informational messages, announce-only voicemail box enables a voicemail box to play a recorded message without allowing callers to leave a voicemail. This feature can be enabled and messages can be easily changed at any time in the Voicemail Boxes section of SmartPBX by going to Advanced, then Options. Hold Music Resume — Hold music no longer restarts at the beginning every time you put a caller on hold! This is ideal for custom/sales messages because callers will now hear a continuation of the message, instead of it restarting at the beginning every time the caller is placed on hold. We’re already planning our first release of Q3, so keep an eye on your email! 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 Q2: UC Today published not one but two exciting articles featuring the 2600Hz team — SMS is Key to COVID-Era Business Survival and 2600Hz Intros Beta Softphone & Video Conferencing. We rolled out a series of video tutorials about how to get started with KAZOO to help new partners get up and running in no time.
