Competing in SaaS or VoIP

January 19, 2016

In this growth hack article, there a number of good points about SaaS companies that can be extended to the VoIP space as well. (Voice is just an app today, right?)

"SaaS is getting increasingly competitive." You think? Look at all of these marketing apps.

How Do You Choose a Marketing Firm?

January 18, 2016

I find it interesting that most service providers treat marketing as separate from the business as a shed in the backyard is separate from the house. Service providers would not hire someone off fiverr or elance to configure routers or phones, but would use any platform like that to hire people to manage their brand or marketing.

At the very least, when hiring a marketing firm, check their track record. Do they have any home runs?

Uh Oh, Microsoft is Closing the Gaps

January 15, 2016

Some folks think I am picking on the VoIP space (see this post). Maybe I am. Hosted PBX started for me in 2003 when Broadsoft's second customer rolled out its platform and signed me up as their first agent. It has been a struggle ever since.

Is There Anything Impressive About VoIP?

January 11, 2016

I am getting peppered with email invites to lunch-and-learns, webinars and other events to learn about "impressive" companies. Is there anything impressive about VoIP? Is anyone doing anything really unique? I am having a hard time thinking so.

Data Center M&A to Start off 2016

January 11, 2016

Verizon put its Terremark division up for auction. Windstream sold its data centers to TierPoint. Rumor has it that CenturyLink and AT&T are looking at selling their data centers.

The market for data centers is at a high - and the telcos need cash, so a sale makes sense.

Telco Troubles, Clec Version

January 6, 2016

You forget how many CLECs there are in the US until you check a PUC list like Texas.

The big names in the channel are Birch, Level3, Zayo, EarthLink, TelePacific, XO, WIND, Integra, Mettel, Granite, Bullseye, C-Link, AireSpring, Broadview, GTT. Lot of varying business models in that list alone.

The copper retirement issue is front and center for CLECs (see this Fierce piece).
