While it is our policy as a company not to endorse political positions or candidates, we are excited to find a new application for our virutal PBX and unified communications technologies in political campaigns. As we have been touting these technologies as enabling greener solutions and more democratic solutions for the workplace (see previous blogs on our project with BGI, and partnership with WorldBlu), we are feverishly trying to keep up with deploying our virtual calling platform for a number of state headquarters in the Obama-Biden Campaign for Change including campaign offices in Nevada, Colorado, New Hampshire, Montana, Wisconsin, Virginia and Pennsylvania.
Specifically, the Obama campaign requirements as they hit the homestretch of the campaign are quick deployment, a flexible platform that can virtually handle hundreds or thousands of calls at once & configurable to specific call trees and local requirements. Working closely with one of our technology and network partners, Aptela, we have been able to ramp up a number of locations connected to different phone banks to help ease the rush of calls that will be escalating as we approach election day.
This is an exciting time for America, regardless of which side of the fence you find yourself - we are excited to be playing a part in this amazing and historic election season! Above all, don’t forget to vote!
