2014 CTIA E-Tech Awards Select Voxox Mobile App and Cloud Phone Small Business Web App as Finalists

Voxox®, the most comprehensive cloud-based rich communication service for consumers and businesses, today announced that two of its products — Cloud Phone web app for small businesses and Voxox mobile app for consumers — were named as finalists in the Mobile Cloud category of CTIA’s annual Emerging Technology (E-Tech) Awards competition. Representing the most innovative and cutting-edge emerging mobile services, solutions and technology, the E-Tech Awards finalists feature the best in areas such as the Internet of Things, M2M and the cloud. Winners will be announced at the E-Tech Awards ceremony, which will take place on Wednesday, September 10, at 12:30 p.m. at Super Mobility Week, held September 9-11, 2014 at the Sands Expo and Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.

“CTIA awards recognize the best and most innovative products and services for wireless companies looking to improve their operations and their engagement with their customers,” said Robert Mesirow, CTIA vice president and show director. “Perfectly positioned for retailers to prepare for the holiday buying season, Super Mobility Week attendees will see what will be the next hottest devices and services.”

Cloud Phone is a virtual PBX service, which empowers small business owners with a dedicated toll-free or local business telephone number that can be forwarded to a user’s existing phone. Cloud Phone supports multiple employee extensions worldwide, and offers convenient telephony features, such as sophisticated call routing, transcribed voicemail-email delivery, web callback and more. The all web-based service is managed through a sleek user interface and can be set up in under a minute. Launched in February 2014, Cloud Phone has already won multiple awards for its simple yet effective phone solution for one-to-10 person businesses. A 30-day free trial is available to all new subscribers.

Voxox’s consumer mobile app for iOS and Android offers consumers an unmatched combination of communication features, such as free worldwide calling and texting to all phone numbers, two-way electronic faxing, on-the-fly language translation, group rich-media sharing, voicemail transcription, and much more. A powerful OTT service, Voxox is revolutionizing the way consumers communicate by allowing users to communicate with Voxox users and non-Voxox users alike, without ever having to leave the app. All Voxox-to-Voxox communication is free, as is all inbound communication to Voxox accounts from non-Voxox contacts. New users receive free credit for their Voxox account, which will be topped up every month.

“To have not one, but two, of our products recognized by such a well-respected industry group like CTIA is a tribute to the hard work and dedication of the Voxox team,” said Bryan Hertz, co-founder and CEO of Voxox. “Our mission is to create true unified communications for both business and consumer users, and this honor shows that we are well on our way to achieving our objective.”

Along with CTIA’s two other awards programs, Hot for the Holidays and MobITs Awards, there were almost 300 entries submitted and scored by more than 50 industry experts, analysts and media.

Super Mobility Week attendees and online users will also have the opportunity to choose a “Crowd Favorite” by voting for their favorite product, not just finalists, in each program. Online voting is open now and runs until Monday, September 8, at 5:00 p.m. ET. Super Mobility Week attendees can still vote via text onsite starting September 8 until 10:00 a.m. ET Wednesday, September 10.
