Burlington, MA – September 15, 2021 – Vodia Networks (“Vodia”), maker of cutting-edge software-based telephone systems, is pleased to announce Version 68 of the company’s cloud PBX is finished and has been released. The release notes are available at https://doc.vodia.com/docs/releasenotes680.
Vodia will host a webinar to take distributors and resellers through Version 68 on Thursday, September 23, 2021 at 10:00 AM EDT. Register here to attend: https://my.demio.com/ref/k29TqDegmi9z9Vy6
What can users expect from 68?
- Changes have been made to the naming convention: “multi-tenant” has become a well-known word for hosting multiple clients on one system, so they are now referred to as “tenants,” and “hunt groups” have been renamed “ring groups,” while “agent groups” are now “queues.” Inside the tenant the scope is more within the tenant – for example, the address book is now called “the shared address book” instead of “the domain address book.” These changes will gradually find their way into different languages and into the documentation.
- Version 68 also brings a lot of new features to both the back end and the front end. Over the last six months there was an increase in web front end and PC app users – it’s likely the pandemic was a major factor here and, consequently, it was necessary to bring the front end to the next level. The parking and pickup of calls has been redesigned, the queue view has been improved and new functions specifically for the queue manager have been added.
- On the back end, the queue report email has been redesigned and now provides charts of agent activity for the day, week, month or quarter. Groups have been introduced to address the bulk management of permissions like most user interfaces do today.
- Email can now be set up with just a Vodia email address. This is optional, as users can still use their own servers, but the company wanted to simplify the setup process, especially for smaller installations, e.g., with the Vodia IOP. The IOP software update interface has been improved and now shows the administrator when the files have been written to the SD card and it’s safe to restart.
“We listened to requests from our distributors and resellers and worked tirelessly to accommodate them, and we’re sure Version 68 is another milestone in the history of the Vodia PBX,” said Christian Stredicke, CEO of Vodia Networks, Inc. “We believe it’s the industry’s finest, most robust and resilient and easy-to-use cloud PBX, and we continue to improve it. We thank our partners for being part of our continued success, and we hope you’ll continue to reach out to us and let us know what you think of 68.”
“Version 68 is the next iteration of our cloud PBX, the most robust, feature-rich PBX available, a full UC suite for resellers worldwide,” said Kyle Asbury, Director of Sales and Marketing, Vodia. “As with our previous versions, our channel partners can brand their own cloud – including AWS – and PBX. Our pricing is per individual seat license, which means high-margin, recurring revenue for resellers – we give them the key, and from thereon it’s self-hosted. Version 68 is replete with numerous back-end and front-end improvements and, coupled with our complete training and deployment support, this is a great opportunity for resellers to jump in. I want to invite everyone to join us for our September 23rd webinar and take a look under the hood of 68. It’s truly impressive.”
