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.

Simple Phone Co. and our neighbors, The Longwith Group, are hosting two awesome artists this Friday night from 6-10pm at our office spaces (111 N. Harbor Blvd., Fullerton). Every “First Friday” during the summer months, downtown Fullerton transforms into an art walk, showcasing the best photographers, painters, writers, and musicians the city has to offer. We are excited to invite Jen Fedrizzi and Darilynn Tipton to display their works along our exposed brick walls. Feel free to join us and RSVP at our Facebook event page. We hope to see you there!

Looking for more ways to cut costs and improve productivity within your company? Well, switching your phone service to a VoIP provider like Simple Phone Co. could be the best solution. Here are some reasons why making the transition sooner rather than later is a good choice.

Lower Cost
Switching to VoIP can cut your costs significantly. For Simple Phone Co. customers, there are no expensive phone servers or equipment that need to be installed since our VoIP services are cloud-hosted.  We have also made our plans even more affordable by only charging customers for the number of lines (call capacity) they need. 

You can bring your VoIP phone anywhere in the world and it will work! All you need is power and an internet connection. You will be able to work remotely without having to compromise or pay additional fees. You can even choose to utilize the amazing power of an IP phone, or the convenience of Wifi calling with your smart phone or laptop!

Convenience & Scalability
Managing your calls is as easy as drag-and-drop. Literally. Our Hosted Phone system allows you to set up your call structures using flowcharts and drag-and-drop features. As an administrator, you can do everything from recording your system’s voicemail or menu greetings to adding an extension for a new hire. All of this and more can be done conveniently from your desktop or laptop.
Speaking of adding extensions, you can add as many extensions or devices as you need in our Hosted Phone system. That’s great for a growing business!

Call Features
There are so many to choose from to make your team more efficient. Call forwarding, conferencing, hot desking, voicemail to email…just to name a few. Check out a full list of our features here. The Simple Phone Co. support team can help you manage these features or you can manage them yourself in your Hosted Phone system. How simple!

VoIP systems support features like HD Audio which gives you the kind of audio quality that traditional POTS lines and cell phones could only dream about.

These are just a few of the most compelling reasons to switch to a VoIP service. Feel free to contact our sales team at 844-4-SIMPLE if you would like any more information or to set up your small business plan!
