AnswerFirst Launches New Website to Market Answering Services to Columbus Metro Area

Tampa, FL, Feb 27, 2013 (PRWeb.com via COMTEX) -- AnswerFirst Communications, an international live telephone answering service and customer service solutions provider specializing in answering services, messaging services, virtual receptionist and call center solutions announced this week that they've launched a new website to market their virtual receptionist solutions and answering services to businesses in the Columbus Metro market.

According to their website, AnswerFirst is based in Tampa, FL and began providing basic answering services in 1985. AnswerFirst now employs almost 100 people across the United States and provides complete contact center and customer service solutions to more than 1700 companies around the globe. Their corporate website provides location-specific content for several major U.S. cities along with general information about the services that they provide globally.

AnswerFirst's Marketing Coordinator, April Gillmore, said, "We did some market research at the end of 2012 and one of the things that we learned is that our main corporate website gets hundreds of hits from the Columbus Metro region. There was enough website traffic from this segment of our market that we decided to create content and a website that is specific to Columbus Answering Services. We still provide location specific information about Columbus on our main site, but it is much less detailed than what we've made available on this region specific site. Location specific content includes topics like information about disaster preparedness specific to a particular region and what downtime issues are likely to affect businesses that operate in these particular areas coupled with information about the solutions we offer to assist business owners in these areas." AnswerFirst CEO, Matt Herron, stated, "A large part of our overall marketing strategy for 2013 is to provide very specific information about our services and what we actually do for our partners on a daily basis instead of providing a broad generic description of who we are and the services we provide. Launching the Columbus Answering Service website is one of many milestones in our plan to differentiate our services and target very specific markets and partnerships." For more information about AnswerFirst's answering service and call center solutions please visit their website or call.

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.

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.
