Digium Expands AsteriskExchange with Shadow CMS Enterprise Call Accounting

Mar 08, 2011 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) -- Digium announced it is adding a new listing category to AsteriskExchange dedicated to custom applications for Switchvox, the company's line of VoIP business phone systems.

According to a release, Switchvox creates custom applications. To jump-start the development and promotion of the Switchvox Solutions category and the AsteriskExchange, the standard fees are being waived for all Asterisk and Switchvox-related listings. AsteriskExchange is a marketplace.

"An important differentiator for Switchvox is our XML-based Extend API, which makes it easy for developers to integrate Switchvox with any web application, and that ultimately benefits the customer by giving them access to a broader range of customized features and add-ons," said Leslie Conway, vice president of global marketing at Digium. "Adding a special Switchvox category in AsteriskExchange makes it easier for end users to find the applications they need." Initial Switchvox applications are available now through the AsteriskExchange, such as Microsoft Dynamics CRM integration solution created by Stauffer Technologies, a Switchvox reseller and Digium certified partner.

"We're excited to have a place to showcase our custom integrations and to offer a solution that we know will benefit other companies," said Ken Stauffer, owner of STI. "Switchvox is an important part of our portfolio and extending its functionality helps us deliver increased value to our customers."
