James Passingham (r), collects award

When we were planning Voxivo, we threw away the rule book and started from a clean slate.

The Internet Telephony Services Providers Association (ITSPA) has announced that the winner of the 2018 award for Best VoIP Software is Foehn, the business communications developer, for their latest cloud phone system Voxivo. The category is one of four additions to this year’s awards, reflecting the popularity and highly competitive nature of the award entries.

The award recognises Voxivo’s innovative approach to cloud phone system design, where simple and intuitive features enable both IT and business employees to take greater control of system management and configuration. In this way, businesses can reduce the cost and reliance on third party technicians, as well as providing a more pleasurable user experience and better engagement with new features by employees.

Based on an agile, secure open-source framework, Voxivo incorporates 18 years of specialist cloud phone development headed-up by Foehn’s CTO James Passingham. On accepting the award, Passingham commented:

“When we were planning Voxivo, we threw away the rule book and started from a clean slate."
"We wanted to design something that broke away from traditionally technical, complex phone management and give users more control of their personal phone requirements, just like other business applications. After two years of intensive development work, I believe we got it right and it’s rewarding now to receive praise from customers that bear testament to our ‘deliver excellence’ approach.”

Presented at the Barbican Botanical Gardens in central London, this year’s awards celebrated their tenth anniversary. Eli Katz, Chair of ITSPA, commented:

“This year’s field of finalists was particularly competitive and demonstrated the strength and growth of the sector. This special event provided not just a great way to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the Awards, but also a way of recognising the achievements of ITSPA and our members over the past twelve months.”
