No Network Networking ... on the Biggest Network of All

CARLSBAD, Calif., August 9 /PRNewswire/ -- When the typical small business network resembles, "Hey, Julie! Where's the Parsons file?" it's hard to persuade decision makers that they need networking hardware and software. They're costly to install and maintain and, if they fail, work can grind to a halt. Unless the business uses NetOffice.
NetOffice provides a virtual network - an Internet-hosted service that connects users without investments in servers and software or the cost of installation and maintenance. The subscription-based service takes only minutes to activate and personalize, and new users can be added ... or removed ... at any time.
Complete Business Systems for Small Business
With built-in customer relationship management (CRM), email marketing, file storage and sharing, and toll-free telephony to handle incoming calls and faxes, NetOffice replicates the most sophisticated business systems. Yet the comparative cost is minuscule
No one appreciates business expenditures better than an accountant. For Kim Callahan, who runs Small Business Network in Valdosta, Georgia, the time she saves for herself using NetOffice is often time she saves for her clients, as well.
"One of the things I like best about NetOffice is that it helps keep me organized. It shows me exactly what I've done, what I've sent to clients, what I've received from them. So I can respond to their needs almost automatically."
Information in Advance ... and on Demand
She responds by utilizing two advanced features - automated email marketing and fax-on-demand. "I use NetOffice's email campaigns to send clients tax and accounting information that affects their businesses. Instead of using postal mail and paying for printing and postage," she emphasizes, "I set up NetOffice to send the information. It gets there faster, costs nothing, and takes a fraction of the time I used to spend."
When her clients want the latest general information, Kim makes it available as on-demand faxes. Clients call her toll-free number (which is part of the NetOffice service), select the right information from the audio menu, and use their phones' Touch-tone(R) keys to have it faxed to them instantly... without Kim having to do a thing.
Cost Avoidance and Reclaimed Time
"I figure that NetOffice saves the cost of a fax machine, paper, ink, and a separate phone line," Kim states. "If the phone's not tied up for faxes, I can handle more calls. I can also keep everything in one place - all my faxes, voicemail, client data, files, and so on - and be able to access it even when I'm not in my office."
What does that add up to? "NetOffice saves me about two hours a day, and I can use that time to take on additional clients."
About NetOffice
NetOffice eliminates technology barriers, simplifies workflow, and makes it easier for employees to get things done (and for small businesses to compete against big ones). The company's hosted services integrate the essential data- and phone-based technologies small businesses rely on and makes them available through a Single Point of Contact online.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

Featured Whitepapers

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

- Summary


Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
