VoIP Supply (VoIP Supply, LLC)

http://www.voipsupply.com

 

A brief synopsis of the website / application:

VoIP Supply is North America’s leading supplier of VoIP equipment and solutions. We represent over 90 different brands, carry over 6,500 SKU’s and have over 100,000 customers worldwide. Until about 18 months ago we only sold VoIP equipment and were simply referring customers to various places to find a VoIP provider.

Over time VoIP service requests increased, so last November we built a little application that would capture a customer’s VoIP service need/preference and match that with up to 5 potential VoIP providers who offered what they need.

Since then, we’ve helped a little over 4,000 companies find the right VoIP service for their business with our web based Hosted VoIP Service Quotes application (http://www.voipsupply.com/phone-systems/hosted-voip).

Why did you start this company?

VoIP Supply was started in 2004 to fill the void in the marketplace for a single place to buy everything you need for a successful VoIP deployment. Hence our tagline, “Everything you need for VoIP.”

At the time there was no single outlet for everything you needed, so we decided to create it and since then we’ve grown to become the dominant outlet for VoIP equipment and services online.

Was your company started on a shoestring budget or funded?

VoIP Supply was started on a shoestring budget of $75,000.

Who is your competition, and what do you do better?

Our competition ranges from large publicly traded telecommunications and networking distributors to small regional integrators. The VoIP equipment and VoIP service markets are so fragmented at times that it seems like everyone is a competitor.

That said we differentiate ourselves through our customer experience, industry/product expertise, accessibility and simple, easy transactional processes. We also offer a ton of ancillary services such as consultations, device configuration, nationwide installations, technical support and even a legacy equipment buyback program.

Why would a small business, entrepreneur, freelancer, etc use your product?

The reason is simple.

VoIP Supply makes the processes of finding, evaluating and purchasing a VoIP phone system, system component, or VoIP service simple and hassle free whether you are using our website or calling into our team of sales associates.
