Vocalocity, a company that provides hosted VoIP phone systems, recently announced that it has partnered with American Red Cross to help people affected by natural disasters, and to acknowledge the anniversary of Hurricane Sandy.
In the coming four months, Vocalocity will be donating five percent of new account’s first-month service charges for the affected people. Also, the company will join hands with American Red Cross for various volunteer efforts that include training and certifying employees on First Aid and CPR, contributing to the January 2014 blood drive and sending letters to active military service men and women.
Wain Kellum, Vocalocity CEO said that Vocalocity is always looking for an opportunity to contribute in their communities. “The American Red Cross has identified disaster relief as the first of five key service areas. The unique ability of our phone service to keep people connected when these types of disasters occur, most recently the floods in Colorado, gives us a special connection to the work that the American Red Cross is doing and motivated us to want to do more to help,” Kellum added.
“We are always excited to bring on new partners from the business community, especially when their products or services align with our mission,” said Terri Badour-Duckett, CEO of the Georgia Red Cross. “Vocalocity’s generous donation will enhance our ability to provide help, hope and comfort to those in disaster- affected communities.”
Apart from providing hosted VoIP phone systems to businesses in the U.S., Vocalocity develops in-house, proprietary technologies like mobile apps for iPhone and Android and CRM plugins for Vocalocity Desktop. In its most recent Cloud UC Services Market Share Report, Synergy Research Group confirmed that Vocalocity, the fastest growing provider of voice over IP (VoIP) phone service for small-and medium-sized businesses, continues to maintain a strong lead in the Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) market. The UCaaS market grew 22 percent year-over-year in Q2 2013 with Vocalocity generating annual revenue growth of 45 percent in the same period.
