Need a Marketing Guru for your IP Communications Co.?

April 27, 2009

I am the luckiest person on earth sometimes to be surrounded by so many positive and inspiring persons in the IP communications industry, from open source developers to entrepreneurs to early adopters and we can't leave this group out... those marketing experts. But Jaymie Scotto, Michael Corr, and Ilyssa Miller's successful efforts in the last area moved me to get an interview recorded at didx.net/podcast.

I met Jaymie online when I asked a question about how to use the Deal Center for Comptel 2007. I was expecting a curt, probably rude answer, but instead was told in a few kind words what to do and even a phone call to guide me through.

Skuku and other Mobile VoIP Applications Avoid Roaming

March 1, 2009

Paul Deane and I met Ziv Rotblit of Skuku (only 3 months old and already serving 20 countries) at GSM in Barcelona this year. Their services lets you turn your PC into your cell phone anywhere in the world" is very accurate. They offer their users the added flexibility of staying in their home network with their own number and local plan prices no matter where they are in the world. 

Essentially, their technological breakthrough is the convergence of the GSM network and the Internet. They can help people traveling abroad save a lot of money on their roaming charges, but the beauty lies in the fact that they do it from their own cell number that doesn't change no matter where they are in the world. 

Skuku users can also receive calls and text messages directly to their number so there's no need to notify clients or business partners that they're traveling.
