SAN JOSE, CA— If you are an executive in the hospitality industry, then listen up because there’s a new virtual PBX solution on the market that offers tangible benefits for your operation. Voice Carrier is making a major competitive moves in the virtual PBX market by acquiring hospitality VoIP solutions provider PBillX.
I hadn’t heard of PBillX until the acquisition. But I can see why Voice Carrier went after this deal. PBillX is the maker of an award-winning product called P$X. It’s a virtual PBX system that targets the hospitality industry.
Specifically, PBillx develops P$X software, a solution to provide a certified property management system (PMS) interface to open source Asterisk VoIP solutions. Voice Carrier has integrated the P$X software with its own VoIP PBX systems and service to create a paradigm shift in the way the hospitality industry uses its telephony infrastructure.
“PBillX established itself as an innovator in bringing state-of-the-art VoIP capabilities to the hospitality industry where many properties are still using outdated, expensive and difficult-to-maintain legacy PBXes,” says Gary Johnson, president and CEO of Voice Carrier.
“Now with P$X software in our hospitality portfolio, we can deliver a hybrid, cloud-based, on-premise PBX with a seamless integration to the hotel’s existing PMS. This coupled with our uniquely priced VoIP service plans allows Voice Carrier to provide hotels with unprecedented cost and operational savings over conventional PBXes—the bigger the hotel, the bigger the savings.”
The P$X software interfaces with the hospitality industry’s most popular PMS systems, including Micros Fidelio, Opera and Suit8, Protel, Amadeus Hospitality, Brilliant, Newhotel and Silverbyte/Optima. Hotels that choose Voice Carrier’s new hospitality solution can still use their existing in-room analog phones and phone system infrastructure while tapping into new functionality, lower monthly phone bills and a new potential to boost occupancy and revenues by marketing unlimited
local and long distance calling to prospective guests.
Voice Carrier is serious about the opportunity. The virtual PBX provider just joined
Hotel Technology Next Generation and the Asian American Hotel Owners Association. Voice Carrier will also be participating in major hotel industry conventions in the company months.
