January 26, 2018
RestcommONE Marketplace Partner Blog Series For the past year I’ve had the privilege of being embedded with the Telestax team as they’ve built and launched the RestcommOne Marketplace. As with any product launch (at least the ones I’ve been a part of), it’s had its share of wins and losses (or strikes and gutters if you’re a Big Lebowski fan), but it’s come a long way since the public announcement in May.

Chat bot appointment scheduling is great for business!

January 23, 2018
RestcommONE Marketplace Partner Blog Series In today’s blog post, let’s look at appointment scheduling and appointment rescheduling. Ben Franklin famously observed in his 1748 piece, Advice to a Young Tradesman, that “time is money.” If you’ve been idle, he explained, you’ve “spent, or rather thrown away,” the money you could have made.

Long Live CPaaS - Or Why APIs Are Here To Stay

January 1, 2018
A Bit of History For many years telco vendors (e.g. Ericsson, Cisco and Huawei) held the keys to the castle by designing and deploying complex proprietary network solutions that were often focused on one singular aspect.
