I recently came across a software-based IP-PBX company from Germany that I have never written about before. Vertico Software GmBH makes a product called Starface which comes in a variety of flavors, from software to an appliance or hosted solution.
The company supports SIP trunking and one of the latest news items Vertico Software released in fact is a partnership with Broadvox, one of the leaders in the SIP trunking space.
The communications software company focuses on low-priced, fully-functional solutions which seem like they have all the bells and whistles a growing small to medium needs.
There is extended backup, different music-on-hold based on individual users or groups, an installation GUI for beginners, an XML menu available on SNOM hardware and a client which allows things like screen pops, call deflection, ad-hoc conferencing and more.
There are other advanced features like rules-based call forwarding, LDAP connectivity, virtual conference rooms with PIN-based access, visual conference participant control, presence detection and dissemination, and connectivity with CRM systems.
One thing setting this system apart from many others on the market is support for many languages (6 in total).
The German company is looking to expand in the US so if you are a reseller or small to medium business looking for a flexible and reasonably-priced solution with built-in international support, check out the company’s website.
