TMONE Occupies 27,000 Sq. Ft. Contact Center to Support VoIP

Iowa City, IA — January 3, 2006

TMONE , an Iowa direct marketing firm, today announced its occupancy of a 300 seat facility formerly utilized by telecommunications goliath MCI. The marketing company specializes in acquiring new subscribers for VoIP (voice over internet protocol) an emerging voice and data communications technology (a.k.a. digital phone service) that enables users to transmit voice and data over broadband internet connections substantially reducing the cost of phone service and achieving added functionality not available through POTS (plain old telephone service). The facility marks another expansion for TMONE whose growth will continue to support the VoIP industries press to acquire new subscribers over the next five years. Employing multiple channels to acquire new subscribers, TMONE?s direct response focused marketing solution is comprised of contact center services, direct mail, internet marketing and above the line advertising media. The 27,000 square foot state of art facility is designed to acquire up to 50,000 telecom and information service subscribers a month at full capacity and support millions of customers. The layout of the facility can be viewed at

VoIP (voice over internet protocol) subscriber counts have grown rapidly over the last year (approximately 4 million subscribers at the end of 2005) and according to the comparative estimates of industry observers the aggressive rate of growth is expected to continue over the next five years culminating at over 54 million subscribers lines by the end of 2010. Leading the way to mass adoption in the consumer market are companies like 8×8 (Packet8), SunRocket, and Vonage that developed VoIP solutions early on and have been aggressively marketing in 2005. Entering into the fray are some noteworthy arrivals whose size and resources validate the hype surrounding the new technology. Bellsouth (powered by Packet8), Verizon — MCI, SBC — AT&T and Qwest Communications all major ILEC?s (independent local exchange carriers) have announced the launch of VoIP solutions. MSO?s (multiple service operators) Time Warner, Cablevision, Cox, Videotron, Charter, Comcast, and Mediacom are also bundling VoIP phone service with other service offerings. Other 2005 VoIP announcements are internet moguls Google (Google Talk), Microsoft, EBay (Skype), AOL (TotalTalk), and Yahoo! This commitment to a strong VoIP play by the ESP?s (enhanced service providers), ILEC?s, MSO?s, ISP?s (internet service providers), and dot-coms is writing on the wall for TMONE who has been preparing to support VoIP marketing efforts since the companies launch.

TMONE was founded in 2002 by Anthony Marlowe, President and John Burchert, COO after a successful tenure operating contact center services for Fortune 500 telecom provider MCI. The company has been actively marketing on behalf of telecom providers & information service providers since inception and has been at the forefront of VoIP customer acquisition in 2005. Driving the marketing company to new heights is a talented management team that boasts over 100 years of combined experience direct marketing telecommunications. The management lineup and company history created a natural niche for TMONE and has piloted it to support the budding VoIP market. Key to TMONE?s integrated marketing solution is their expertise in contact center services which enabled the company to field a unique multi-channel approach designed specifically for VoIP. The innovative solution is responsible for successfully acquiring a significant number of new VoIP subscribers for some of the industries most prominent service providers. Among the clientele that will benefit from the expansion is leading Santa Clara, CA based VoIP and videophone communications provider 8×8, Inc NASDAQ: EGHT who contracted TMONE in August of 2005 to provide direct response marketing and contact center services for their suite of Packet8 business and residential internet phone and video phone service offerings.

?The new facility is indicative of the fact that VoIP has transitioned to mass market adoption. IPTV, Wi-Fi and other related technology will follow suit quickly. This sets the stage for true consumer and small business choice in voice and video communications.? said Anthony Marlowe, President.

TMONE?s project management division supports a wide range of ancillary marketing channels used to acquire subscribers for its clientele, and will also be located out of the new facility. TMONE capitalizes on its direct marketing and teleservices expertise with service offerings that add value to its basic acquisition package and allows clients to customize their integrated marketing with wholesale advertising passed though by TMONE. The additional services and marketing media are managed by TMONE and implemented with existing database marketing and contact center services in mind. Offerings include dedicated inbound tele-sales, customer winback, customer retention, welcome calls/up-sell, web collaboration and project management of supplementary direct marketing channels and above the line advertising media such as the internet, radio and television.

?We are happy to locate ourselves in Iowa City and the old MCI facility is a perfect fit,? said John Burchert, COO. ?TMONE will be immediately adding over 200 jobs to the Iowa City – Cedar Rapids technology corridor many of which will require the same skill sets as the positions eliminated by MCI. We will continually grow until we level off close to 1000 employees.?

Pulling from the telecom talent pool left by MCI and the University of Iowa is part of TMONE?s strategy. ?Iowa City is a great town and a great place for our business. We hope to reciprocate positive things to the community. It is easy to understand why FORBES ( ranks Iowa City in its Top 10 best places,? said Corey Poulsen.

How Can VoIP Support Small Business Growth

Article Source: Can VoIP Support Small Business Growth

Here’s the question …. how can you convince your management that a VoIP solution will support your small business?

The best argument for VOIP is lower communication costs … but it’s not the only reason.

I would suggest using hybrid solutions. Where the bulk of communication, voice, and video are done through VOIP …. and emergency services “fall back” in case of Internet fail is done with minimal classical PSTN solutions.

When I say VOIP from now on I mean 90 % VOIP and some minimal PSTN add-ons.


1- Lower communication costs ….

While this is basically clear it still needs to be demonstrated. Assume you have a company that most of its calls are from “overseas” to the USA and vice versa.

You need to get the cost of all such calls currently on one side …. and then compute what would be the cost in case all Intercontinental calls went through a VOIP system.

Now you have the number of calls * local call quantity* local call cost.

You can compare the costs in both situations.

a. I would take the worst case scenario where none of the calls in either side ends in a VOIP end station like Packet8. To make the comparison complete you should add all static costs as well: equipment cost, support cost etc.

b. Simply compare the price of adding a 2MBPS PRI line to increasing your company’s Internet connection BW by 2 MBPS. That will show a lot to VOIP’s favor.

c. Long distance calls are severely affected by duration of the call. While local calls and VOIP goes into the PSTN, are much less affected by the duration. In some places in state calls are not charged individually but a monthly payment is done.

d. Equipment cost per end station is lower. While this is almost always true you need to prove that too by talking to a VOIP equipment provider, for example AVAYA, Cisco, NORTEL. And comparing the prices in both instances.

2. Adding new features to an existing PBX is messy most of the time …. while adding new features, capabilities and capacity is easy in VOIP.

3. A unified communication that has VOIP and IP running on the same enterprise infrastructure is easier to manage …. but of course needs more expertise.

4. You can have ‘local’ numbers anywhere a VOIP provider has a presence. Want to establish a presence in another state or country – start with a VOIP number in the new location that is answered by an existing office.

5. It allows you to virtualize your office. For example, a company provides after hours customer support by employing people to work from home in four time zones. VOIP allows the company’s PABX to be extended cheaply and easily into their home … even though they are in different countries and serviced by different telcos/ISPs.

6. Besides lower costs in contrast to PSTN, VoIP services provide better roaming, a possibility to quicker office relocation and total independence from local telephone companies (meaning that in theory you can buy VoIP services from any service provider on the globe). With VoIP services you can build a PBX which serves the same voice services to all employees around the globe thus making it possible to build virtual offices. You can also easily integrate voice, e-mail and presence services with VoIP technologies.

7. More advantages include …. Ubiquity through Unified Messaging, phone mobility, geographic growth through MPLS networks using centralized services, 50% less cabling in LAN, use a portable with VoIP Client plus headsets and digital/voip phones cease to be necessary, corporate voice can go through a data MPLS network, you can receive calls over the internet on your contact center.

Keep in mind that while trying to convince your company to favor a VOIP solution … it is also important to be open and explain all the pros and cons, everything.

* Quality of voice is similar to regular PSTN solutions but not exactly the same as POTS. It might be undiscernibly but still some difference exists. How close the quality of VOIP depends on how well your company’s infrastructure is ready for VOIP, how good an SLA (Service Level Agreement) you have with you Internet Service Provider.

* When the Internet is attacked intentionally or unintentionally all VOIP equipment, end points, VOIP phones will be affected. It is very rare that a PSTN system is brought down except when a catastrophe happens and everyone is trying to call everyone.

* Voip gained such a bad reputation over the last few years, as everyone still keeps talking about low call costs and free calls. VoIP is a reasonable cost installation but not Cheap at least if you use decent kit. If you try and do everything on the cheap then you get bad call quality etc and loads of hate mail from management.

There you go … most everything you need to develop a strong argument for implementing a VoIP solution in your company. For additional assistance to work through all the specifics …. and find the most cost effective providers (hardware and services) …. I suggest using Their help is NO COST to you …. another advantage.

Atlanta, GA — March 3, 2006

What: Discussion of Employee Performance Support Systems featuring Janet Emery

Information, process, new applications and change can overwhelm the staff or associates responsible for providing important services. Today more than ever, companies are over investing in employee training and retention and under investing in tools for more immediate performance gains Janet’s discussion addresses how to help employees achieve confidence and competence in business processes, products and policies which results in greater adoption of software and standards and increased quality of service.

Virtual Call Center Company OnState Announces Support For Google Voice

Newburyport, Mass. — July 6, 2009

OnState Communications, the leading provider of on-demand virtual call center and PBX business communications systems, today announced that its cloud-based call center and PBX solutions fully support Google Voice, the new voice communications management tool from Google. This support combines with existing Google Talk and Google Apps support as part of OnState’s virtual call center and PBX solutions, and allows Google users to retain all of the inherent product features while building upon them to improve customer-facing communications.

“With this new support, OnState allows you to turn Google Voice into a full-featured PBX or call center for a fraction of normal industry prices,” said Pat Kelly, CEO of OnState. “And while using Google Voice you can reap the benefits inherent to OnState, including multi-modal capabilities, business- and skills-based routing, seamless application integration, reporting and analytics, and our business presence capabilities.”

OnState adds to its product a business abstraction layer called business presence™. This information tracks the availability and activity of workers wherever they are – in the office, working from home, or travelling – and intelligently connects customers to employees based on worker availability, capability, or any other company-defined criteria. OnState combines its business presence knowledge with Google Voice, Google Talk, Google Apps, Skype, Salesforce, SIP, PBXs, and traditional desk and mobile phones to help companies optimize interactive communications amongst employees and customers, independent of device, network, or medium. Businesses can add Google Voice, Google Talk, and even video chat to customer-facing communications, websites, and applications with OnState, and use business presence to direct inbound inquiries to employees that can best serve the query based, independent of employee location or available in-use applications like PBX phones, Google Talk, Google Voice, PC phones, or mobile phones.

Google Voice is designed to facilitate personal communications, but is not well suited for customer-facing applications that allow a company to establish conversations based on business logic and job functions. Business presence layered on top of Google Voice and Google Talk helps companies extend the application to improve customer satisfaction and enhance worker productivity by connecting customers on the first attempt to the person who can best serve them. By allowing office workers, telecommuters, and mobile workers to leverage Google Voice and Google Talk, OnState delivers rich call center features to ordinary employees and everyday business functions at a fraction of the price of conventional premise-based solutions.
