Interview on Paul Riss, Ceo, voxcorp.net
Sortoflife.com: First we would like to know that from what type of idea you have started the voxcorp.net? What services are you offering?
Paul Riss, Ceo, voxcorp.net: We started as a telephone company that resold landline services from the incumbent carriers. But we always said that packet telephony was the future and that was where we would invest our time and money. Consequently, we built our own packet-swtiched network. We carry packets of data over the Intenet to complete high-quality Voice over IP telephone calls.
A few years ago, Gartner estimated that there will be 300 million mobile VoIP users by the end of 2013. We believe they are correct, and that all of the wireless telephone services will be over the IP network five years from now. Why wait for 5 years to save money on your wireless bill when you can use VoX VoIP and save money now?
We offer low-cost mobile VoIP services to consumers who use an Android device. That means, if you download our app to your smart phone or tablet, you can makes calls to more than 60 countries for 2 cents a minute. Or you can chose some our our low cost country plans, such as calling to a cell phone in Briatain or in Mexico for 7 cents a minute.
Sortoflife.com: How was the response from the users at the beginning? What is the secret of the success of voxcorp.net?
Paul Riss, Ceo, voxcorp.net
Paul Riss, Ceo, voxcorp.net: Our customers love the product. They encourage us to make more international calling plans. The interesting thing is, we have instances of people in France calling a mile away to someone in France, or people in Britain calling their next-door neighbor in Britain, using our calling app, because it costs them less than what their incumbent wireless carrier charges. Especially when a consumer cannot afford an unlimited plan, our calling app saves them money, because the overage charges on carriers such as Verizon or Vodafone range from 30 to 45 cents a minute. If you buy a 500 minute plan for $9.95 a month from VoX and you go over your plan minutes, we charge you only 2.9 cents a minute.
Sortoflife.com: Would you please explain to us about your offered services and other details?
Paul Riss, Ceo, voxcorp.net: We have many calling plans. You need to go to our web site, www.voxcorp.net to see all the plans. We offer both unlimited calling plans and per minute calling plans. For example, for $29.95 each month, you can make unlimited calls to more than 60 countries. For a limited time we are offering a free trial too. If you type in the promotion code FreePlan, you will receive a free trial to several of our calling plans, such as calls to India, Britain, Brazil, the USA, Mexico and other. All the plans are sold from the web. Consumers need to go to our web site or to Google Play to download our app.
Sortoflife.com: How can you afford to offer unlimited messaging?
Paul Riss, Ceo, voxcorp.net: Messaging is data. Data traveling over the Internet is free. We are happy to offer free features to our subscribers. In some countries messaging is 25 cents for each text message. We plan to market in those countries via a mobile wallet partner to help people save money.
Sortoflife.com: How safe the total system is? Is it an encrypted services? How do you facilitate clients with security?
Paul Riss, Ceo, voxcorp.net: We are very security conscious. We have several significant control features in our systems. We have to have high security levels because we cannot let others steal minutes from us. Our IT staff is well-trained in security and we are congnizant of every attempt to penetrate our system.
Sortoflife.com: What about the pricing? Do you think it is justified? Is there any option for corporate or custom package?
Paul Riss, Ceo, voxcorp.net: Our pricing is lower than Skype and Vonage. We have many corporate customers and various packages for individual consumers and companies. Several companies are interested in our app because they have a “bring your own device” philosophy with their employees. If the employee pays for his own mobile phone, but the company reimburses him for usage, how does the employee make personal phone calls and keep personal phone time records away from his employer? Well, the answer is to use the VoX mobile VoIP app for personal calls and the circuit-switched line that the wireless carrier provides for business calls. There is an amusing video about this topic on youtube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5n8c6LuK0pc&feature=plcp where a preacher recommends that everyone who has a company-provided mobile phone, download the app for personal calls.
Sortoflife.com: What can users expect from VoX in future? What features and activities are going to be added to your service and system?
Paul Riss, Ceo, voxcorp.net: Our goal is to take our video VoIP calling and add it to our mobile app. We have excellent video calling over a fixed broadband connection and we plan to take that technology and add it to our mobile app so that our customers can make video calls to other customers.
Sortoflife.com: Would you please offer something special to the readers of this exclussive interview?
Paul Riss, Ceo, voxcorp.net: We are still at the beginning of the mobile Internet revolution. We anticipate this movement will dwarf the PC revolution. We are very excited about the apps we are developing and the cost savings that we believe we can deliver to the consumer. Mobile VoIP is the future, and interactive mobile video calling, video blogging and video conference rooms are much closer than people realize. The Internet will drive down the costs of mobile telephony, so that voice traffic may eventually be free. Why not take advantage of the dropping prices now and download the Vox app from www.voxcorp.net? It runs over 3G, 4G or WiFi, and I have personally found that to be very useful. If I can’t get 3G, because I am in a large office building, I can usually get WiFi, and if I am in the car, I am using 3G or 4G. Some of our customers have made calls from an airplane over the airplane’s WiFi service. And just think, if you have a United States phone number, and were flying over China, the phone company and the tablet still thought you were in the United States when you made that call, and you probably only paid 2 cents a minute for making that call from the airplane.
