More often then not when I’m looking at a new software I find myself thinking about how it can be made useful for my clients, how I would need to modify it to suit their needs, and what the best way to present it would be.
It’s not too often when I come across a piece of software that immediately makes me want to setup a demo, call up clients and simply say, “You HAVE to see this, this software is for you!”
The other day I had one of those rare moments. Looking through my email there was a newsletter which mentioned OpenVBX , so I signed up for an account with Twilio and got my $30 of free sandbox credit, and then went on to install OpenVBX (with the DreamHost One-Click Installer). It took me about 10 minutes to setup my first call flow, menu items, voicemail, and finally get my first call into the sandbox number.
I haven’t tried modifying the themes yet, or taken too close a look at the API, but it all seems so simple, right out of the box, and I’m already thinking about those first few calls.
