Introducing Kazoo BETA: A Free Visual Cloud Business PBX with Full API Access for Developers and Companies of All Sizes
At 2600hz, we believe communication is the fabric of our lives, and it is especially crucial to the business world. Yet many companies today struggle to find inexpensive alternatives for combining services offered by Google Voice and Skype or are stuck with expensive PBX contracts. Kazoo is designed to eliminate that problem for IT consultants, and developers struggling with their telecom solutions.
Today, we are excited to announce a new service that brings the costs and experience of using a business communication service way down. Getting started with a PBX from the ground up has never been easier.
What is Kazoo BETA?
Kazoo BETA equips any company with five free seats on a complete, visual, cloud-based PBX packed with a suite of over 40 features. We give your company the custom tools it needs to communicate best. To name a few, each user now has direct access to their own number, voicemail, customized greetings, and conference bridge. Remote workers can now instantly sync their cellphone to their work number in a Ring Group to answer business calls from their cellphone wherever they are — by using just a few clicks of a mouse. And then reset it back to ring separately whenever they need to. For those who want to bring their current phone system to VoIP, Kazoo BETA seamlessly brings your carrier to Kazoo through our PBX Connector.
PBX Connector: Bring your current phone system to Kazoo
This is all powered on top of Kazoo, a powerful, distributed, API-driven telephony platform with a graphical interface that visualizes all the work under the hood for any end user to understand instantly.
At 2600hz we love cool technologies that change the world. Since day one, our goal has always been to share our technology with everyone so that others can use the building blocks we provide to dream up whatever application or service they can to help them and their users communicate smarter. That’s why we’ve built an API toolset which gives developers open access to all the Kazoo features.
For Developers: An API Tool to Access Every Feature
Every day, we continue to be amazed at what our users and developers are doing with Kazoo. Ideas like placing Kazoo powered iPads in emergency ambulance vehicles connected to stream video and updates to emergency rooms with incoming patient medical information in realtime. Or providing real-time configuration tools to IT professionals on their Android smartphones. Or powering faxing services for compliance for doctors and dentist offices. We even have clients who use a phone’s keypad to open maglocked doors without having to be onsite. All it takes is a little bit of creativity and open access to dream up applications that change this world. We hope you’ll join us.
Kazoo BETA includes the ability to host SIP-compliant phones on our platform, a free inbound phone number (yours to keep!), free E911 support and our suite of configuration and management tools. You also get full access to our APIs and some free minutes to try out the service.
