Vodia Announces Version 67.0 of Its Award-Winning Multi-Tenant Cloud PBX

We are pleased to announce version 67.0 of our award-winning multi-tenant cloud PBX is now available. 67.0 is the evolution of version 66.0: with the increasing need to work from anywhere, we made a few tweaks here and there to make working from anywhere possible and more productive. One example of this is the ability to set working hours at both the extension level and at the domain level. It significantly increases user acceptance if the phone system does not ring early in the morning!

We are pleased to announce version 67.0 of our award-winning multi-tenant cloud PBX is now available. 67.0 is the evolution of version 66.0: with the increasing need to work from anywhere, we made a few tweaks here and there to make working from anywhere possible and more productive. One example of this is the ability to set working hours at both the extension level and at the domain level. It significantly increases user acceptance if the phone system does not ring early in the morning!

We have also made it possible for a second-factor sign-in. Emails are a simple way to do this, of course, but where SMS is available the PBX can now send a message to the user’s cell phone with the login code. Even if the user uses a weak password, this feature significantly increases account security.

Speaking of SMS, we have added more SMS providers, including a simple “GET” provider that can send SMS. With additional scrutiny on the big chat providers for their privacy practices, SMS and MMS especially are seeing a revival, particularly for business: old school telecom providers don’t sell user data.

Another highlight of 67.0 is the ability to easily upload ringtones through the web interface, also at the domain level. Though this sounds like a small change, it makes a big difference for many partners who use individual ring melodies to tailor their customers’ experience. We have also made it possible to upload customer logos in PNG format: SVG looks better, but many clients simply don’t have it. Again, this helps provide a better experience to businesses.

We also updated the Vodia apps in the app stores between release cycles. In the Microsoft store, we were able to list the Vodia app in the Windows Store and in the Microsoft Store for Business. This is very useful for companies that want to control what apps users may install on their PCs.

67.0 also gives you outbound fax capabilities and two-factor authentication. For complete release notes, please visit https://doc.vodia.com/releasenotes670.

We’re excited about 67.0. It will help end-users to work productively from the office, from home and from anywhere. Hopefully we can make getting through the pandemic a little bit less painful.

Rashid Jamalalldeen of Real Telecom Talks about Why The Vodia Phone System Works for Him

Our customers actually started with us, let’s say 400 calls, about 400 calls a day. Five years later there are 3000 calls per day. The reason for that is we applied Vodia functionality to various parts of their organizations and captured all the call records that transacted through the system, and we analyzed, for them, to find the source of the calls, what areas geographically, and thus the customer was able to focus their resources in servicing those areas, reaching many more patients and many more doctors.

VODIA AND HEXIS CONSULTING ANNOUNCE PARTNERSHIP

“Our company has been using 3CX for all our client phone systems before I got here. It has been nothing short of an absolute nightmare,” said Liz DelSignore, DTM, PCM and Technician at Hexis Consulting. “Since switching to Vodia, once the initial set up is complete (whether multi-tenant or single tenant), it has been a much more pleasant experience. Support is always there for you when you need them, and they genuinely will do everything possible to help your MSP. Being a pretty small MSP ourselves, that matters a lot – to both us and our customers. We recommend Vodia to literally every MSP that even asks about VOIP and PBX now.”
