If you are still using a PSTN phone network (regular phone line from Verizon or the likes) in your business, it is time for an upgrade. A VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) phone system is less expensive and more versatile. You have heard about and might already be using a service such as Vonage, Basic Talk, Magic Jack, etc. in your home, so why not in your business?

VoIP phone systems are not tied into the old PSTN network, making them less complex, easier to manage, less expensive (no copper phone lines to maintain) and overall more functional. These factors make VoIP the perfect solution for everyone (unless you have no internet access).So why haven’t you made the change? Perhaps you don’t want to make the initial investment or you figure, “if it isn’t broke, don’t fix it.” This is perfectly understandable, change is tough for everyone but in this case it shouldn’t be. Your IT personnel will no longer have multiple networks to manage, your future wallet will love the extra weight it’s put on and your employees will appreciate the convenient features that can be built into the phones.

With the affordable care act and rising healthcare costs on everyone’s minds, Business First was looking at ways companies are using Telemedicine and Telehealth solutions.

Veraview was selected as one of the local WNY companies that has been successful at launching Telemedicine solutions with our clients.

You can read the full article at Buffalo Business First.

“Veraview LLC sees the potential for a double-digit revenue increase in its telemedicine and telehealth business.

The videoconferencing company, founded in 2000, has clients that use telemedicine and telehealth. According to company officials, those business units, which were about $6 million last year, could rise by 10 to 15 percent.

Telemedicine is when doctors use video conferencing equipment when a patient needs to see a specialist. In rural areas, as an example, this can be helpful as the patient and spouse can be with an urgent care doctor in the room who knows an injury requires surgery. The family and doctor can interact with a specialist miles away to share x-rays and other diagnostic information.”

Congratulations to the Recipients of this year’s USDA’s RUS DLT grant. The awards were announced in March. NYS had 6 grant awardees.

Veraview is proud to have been part of the process assisting two of our clients securing the nationally and highly competitive grant.

Congratulations to Cattaraugus Allegany BOCES and the Seneca Indian Nation Health System.
