“CTIA awards recognize the best and most innovative products and

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.
