Ubiquiti UNIFI UVP Review

Apr 15, 2016  

When I first saw this phone’s picture I had to get one. Finally, a company who got it. A modern, fresh design, all screen - with smart functionality. But in the end a disappointment. The Phone I have been a proponent of moving to VOIP but maintaining the traditional phone on the desk (Polycom, Yealink, Cisco etc) as from a user’s perspective - it just works. Softphones are great, but a lot of users have problems with them, or the computer is not quite up to the job. Read more.

Reaching those difficult to reach places

Apr 13, 2016  

If you are lucky enough to work in an office or surgery which is newer than 5 years old then this article will be of no use for you. For buildings which are older than this, you might find it useful to read on. In the olden days (which is what my children refer to my childhood as!) commercial buildings were wired to power things, phone sockets for phones and CAT5 for computers (well actually, there were some predecessors to CAT5 - but we don’t need to go into that in this article).

As part of these ongoing concerns we have reviewed our documentation site (the Wiki), our main web site (which we publish our updates on and how you log onto the console). Read more.


Porting in your number

Mar 8, 2016  

When you move to babblevoice you’d love to bring your number and we love to help you out Unlike mobile phone porting, which is straightforward, (just get a PAC code off your existing provider pass this to your new provider and everything will be sorted), we have to know all about your numbers, whether you want them ported or not, and then of course there’s the obligatory kidney required! You may have direct dial ranges, there maybe associated numbers to the main number, are they multiline (on an existing PBX) or a collection of single line numbers, they may be faxes / or alarm line numbers.

Call Recording

Feb 8, 2016  

Over the Christmas break we noticed that the bins were getting rather full (mainly with wrapping paper – the children have been good this year so Santa was rather generous). So time to send in the happy young children, balance them precariously on top of the bin and ask them to jump up and down a few times. This produced unbelievable results, the bin was now only a third full. Which gave us an idea. Read more.

babblevoice desktop

Nov 10, 2015  

Today we are delighted to announce babblevoice desktop – a utility designed to make it even easier to use the phone you already have!
