We're happy to announce that our Admin Portal is getting a brand new facelift just in time for the new year. Starting today, users will notice a reimagined design when they log into the Admin Portal. The change is entirely aesthetic and will not alter functionality in any way, but the sleek new design is just a preview of things to come. We have many exciting features we're planning to release in 2015, and it all starts with this revamped interface.

InstaPhone for Salesforce offers unprecedented CRM capabilities for sales and support staff. Features such as automatic customer lookup are built directly into InstaPhone for Salesforce, so call center employees can be better prepared to close deals, offer beneficial advice, and create smoother interactions that hone in on a customer's identified needs.
But the possibilities for advanced CRM in InstaPhone are not limited to these preset features. By harnessing the power of SIP.js and InstaCall, users of InstaPhone for Salesforce can retain vital customer information, such as the page and sales items a customer viewed before s/he made the call. This gives a sales representative pertinent information about what the caller is interested in or how far along s/he is in the buying process.

Telecommuting is flourishing in a big way. According to Intuit, 24% of U.S. workers telecommute some hours each week. 4.4% of U.S. workers telecommute everyday of the week, a 100% increase from 1980. But you probably don't need hard numbers to convince you that the general workforce is embracing non-office work time. Employees at your company might work from home via email, IM, and real-time documents.
But what about the office phone at your desk?
Yes, even the device that seemed eternally tethered to your desk is now fully accessible to teleworkers. At OnSIP, we built our hosted PBX solution from the ground up to accommodate mobile workers. OnSIP customers can simply take their desk phones and plug them into an ethernet jack at home to access full PBX functionality. The OnSIP Admin Portal can route calls directly to a worker's cellphone when she's out of the office. And my.OnSIP, our presence-based office directory, connects mobile workers to their offices with click-to-call integration, busy lamp functionality, and seamless instant messaging.
