Wow, we just shipped our one millionth phone! Over 10 years ago, Sangoma (and Digium) decided that having a seamless end-to-end Unified Communication system was important. And at that time, end to end system meant just the phone and the UC systems. So, we decided to release our own phones.
These days, a UC system includes Sangoma’s UCaaS service (or on-premises version), the desk phone, mobile and desktop client software, Sangoma’s collaboration-as-a-service client (TeamHub), and Sangoma’s video meetings service (Sangoma Meet).
The UC industry has come quite a long way in 10 years, but the phone is still part of the system, especially for brick-and-mortar businesses. And we are proud to serve all of these customers.
As I said in the press release about this news, “Many of our customers use both desk phones as well as our mobile and desktop clients to communicate. And since we manufacture our own desk phones and develop our own cloud communications software, we are able to provide deep integration between our phones and our cloud communications services, in a way that other phone manufacturers or UCaaS companies simply cannot do. This kind of integration has contributed to the successful growth of this important product line at Sangoma, differentiating us from our competitors and leading to this one-million-unit milestone.“
So, thank you to all the users of these phones, the distributors who fulfilled these phones, and the resellers who put our solutions into the end-user businesses. Let’s count the next million.
