Emily R Posted October 7, 2020 Report Share Posted October 7, 2020 Q3 2020 Quarterly NewsletterFrom 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.
