New York Business VoIP Resellers

In an earlier blog post, we discussed how New York business VoIP providers can offer NYC-based companies the flexibility needed to keep up with the fast paced workstyle. VoIP services allow employees to work remotely and still be as productive as if they were at their desks (they will be able to extension dial their colleagues from their home office phones, for instance). Hosted VoIP also enables you to make moves, adds, and changes in real-time by use of an online admin portal.

Virtual Phone System Reviews: Beware of These

Google reports that 88% of consumers research before purchasing. That's why in a prior blog on hosted PBX system reviews, we provided a list of 5 websites for our potential customers to check.

Panasonic Office Phones: Setting Up the KX-TGP600 [Tip]

OnSIP, as a BYOD (bring your own device) service, offers our customers a boot server that reduces the time it takes to register a phone with our system.

Using the boot server, customers have to only enter a couple pieces of information into the phone's web interface to register the device with the OnSIP service. If you have to provision many phones, this feature will save you a huge amount of time.

One Panasonic IP phone model, the KX-TGP600, requires a few first steps to be completed that prepare the phone for registration. Eric Phipps, one of OnSIP's NOC Technicians, recorded a video that demonstrates the straightforward (yet additional) process to set up the TGP600 before it can be provisioned.
