TalkSwitch, the developer of the
industry’s most owner-friendly phone systems for small businesses
announced the shipment of its 35,000th phone system. That’s more phone systems
than any other company that has entered this segment since the launch of the
company’s first product.

With 35,000 units shipped in the USA, Canada, Mexico, Australia and the
UK, TalkSwitch leads the market, well ahead of later entrants like Digium
Allworx, Fonality and Microsoft.

“We’ve sold more systems because we understand small business better,”
said Jan Scheeren, President and CEO of TalkSwitch. “No other company has
focused exclusively on small business telephony as long as we have, and
there’s no shortcut for the history of real-world experience and customer
feedback that we’ve built since we started.”

Scheeren points to the ease of installation of TalkSwitch products as
proof – TalkSwitch was the first company to bring a customer-installable phone
system to the market, and today over 70 percent of its systems are installed
by small businesses themselves. And unlike some new entrants, such as Response
Point(TM), TalkSwitch has never sacrificed its full feature set or
industry-leading usability to facilitate ease of installation.

The TalkSwitch channel includes over 1500 resellers and distributors who
prize the company’s owner-friendly approach and small-business-friendly
channel marketing programs. TalkSwitch traditional PBX and hybrid IP-PBX phone
systems uniquely include free lifetime support and software upgrades and boast
the lowest return rate in the industry. These are all factors that landed
TalkSwitch a PHONE+ Top 50 Channel Program award in October 2008, among many
previous accolades.
