SPC loves being involved in the community! Our team has recently been volunteering with the awesome kids of Boys & Girls Club in Tustin. A new 9-week program, Summer of Code, hopes to help kids of all ages develop skills in HTML and CSS and educate them about job opportunities in the tech industry.
At the beginning of the program, the kids were asked to form groups and decide on a theme for the website they were going to be creating. Each group can learn to create websites with a layout of a search engine, personal page, multiplication table, or a digital story book. Once they decided what type of website they wanted to build, they started with the basics like terminology, opening and saving their work, and starting a title, header, and paragraphs in their projects.
Now that they are half way through the program, some groups have generated websites full of colors, pictures, and links to other pages. They are learning so fast! We can’t wait to see more of what comes from their learning experience at Summer of Code!

Last week our sales team journeyed far and wide to build our brand by conquering the long stretch of highway we call the 101 freeway. Their week long trek resulted in gaining new partnerships that will contribute to Simple Phone Co. and our new affiliates promising futures.
The objective of this trip was to meet face-to-face with influential IT companies throughout California and educate them on our services and products. The connection we hope to build with these new partners revolves around good communication and trust. There is no better way to do that than to meet someone in person and give them a great story of how SPC came about.
The story goes as such: Our founder, Chris started this company 5 years ago from an IT company. He hated supporting phones, and learned quickly that customers hated the phone companies he referred. Chris worked with friends to build and developed a powerful phone network now called the hosted platform. Thus, Simple Phone Company was created.
Our sales team hits the road again soon to share the story of Simple Phone Company’s creation and build relationships with industry professionals ready to offer the cream of the crop in small business phone solutions. We look forward to meeting with all of you! Contact us here if you are interested in getting to know more about our partner program.
