Seamless Redundancy, A Cloud-Based Phone System Feature

Redundancy is a great feature for your phone server, NOT in your business phone conversations. Ok, so the kind of redundancy we’re actually referring to isn’t the act of repeating yourself over and over again on the phone, but rather packing your small business phone system with a powerhouse of goods. Seamless redundancy, in terms of your phone servers that power up your cloud-based phone system, is the ability to copy your information from one server to another server.
To understand how redundancy works best, we’ll use an example of one way we used to balance phone calls through our system setup that utilizes two servers. Server A and Server B lined up to manage your calls. Should anything happen to Server A, like maybe it’s getting too busy and slowing down, Server B should have a synced copy of information so that it can kick in and handle the extra load. That’s one way to look at redundancy. Two redundant servers with the same information.

The Problem:

Server A acts as the “hot” or “active” server most of the time. The this is set up, it makes essentially every server is an “A” server with live communications between many servers spread out across the US. Your business can connect to any one without skipping a beat. There are a couple of drawbacks to this setup.

  1. Downtime is a little more possible if any data communication loss occurs between the servers.
  2. This design does not include completely seamless redundancy.
  3. Transferring data is not as fast.

 

The problem with this redundancy technique between two servers is that there are only two points of success. Should both servers get bogged down, downtime is more possible. There are also issues with this setup because it exposes any weakness in the communication between the two servers. If you have a slow internet connection or any data loss between Server A and Server B, then they may not sync up exactly. This is where problems abide.

Introducing A Better Cloud-Based Phone System With Mango Voice 3.0

Mango Voice knows how to handle its data. But now, we are handling it with even more efficiency than ever. We’ve beefed up our cloud-based phone system with the latest and greatest technology. We’ve updated our system to integrate dynamic router negotiation with our phone servers. Remember old Server A and Server B? Gone. We now have a figurative wheel of phone servers, integrating together instantaneously in a circle of data. Information gets spun around the wheel so that there is higher redundancy between each data point, no more data loss and a significant reduction in any downtime. Instead of just two points of data, we now have multiple servers passing information.
Mango Voice 3.0’s new cloud-based phone system is zippy. It’s not your grandma’s phone switchboard. Bringing information into the cloud, we are able to manipulate the data faster. Mango Voice can now manage data and ensure the greatest call quality for your small business. Mango Voice doesn’t overcomplicate a good thing. Our phones are still simplified out of the box and ready to plug right in. While all this technology talk may sound complicated, all you have to do is unbox and plug it in. We really do give you a simplified business phone system.

Mango Voice 3.0 Cloud-Based Phone System


 

Advantages of the new Mango Voice 3.0:

  1. Less downtime.Downtime can hurt call volumes and terminate calls prematurely. With this phone system in place, calls are routed to an available phone server and passed through available systems quickly. This prevents downtime and ensures calls are successful.
  2. No syncing issues.Syncing between two servers that aren’t always in full communication was the weak link in the A and B server scenario. Here, there are no syncing issues because the data is being passed through the loop all the time, immediately.
  3. Dynamic router negotiation.The phone system has a router with dynamic programming allowing it to find the best route for the information to pass through to your network. This makes setup even more of a breeze.
  4. Truly cloud-based.Servers that are based in “the cloud” are on a network that enables lightning-fast speeds and quick transfer of data. Cloud-based systems are also easy to access from any physical location at any time.
  5. Seamless redundancy. Seamless redundancy is the instantaneous communication between all phone servers at the same time. This prevents data loss and ensures all systems are up to date.

Load Balancing – The Key To Saving Data

So while our new system sounds amazing, and it is, the key to making it faster and more efficient is the way we load balance your data. Have you ever done a load of laundry and then walked away only to hear a loud “thud, thud, thud,” that intensifies as your clothes start spinning faster in the cycle? An off-balanced load of laundry is just as annoying as poorly balanced data in a server. It’s not efficient.

With our circle of redundancy, we are also able to load balance the data as we receive it. What this means is during those busy call times, we are able to distribute the congestion evenly across multiple points to ensure no calls drop, there is no loss in speed and everything operates as it should.
This system is truly cloud-based. By load balancing through dynamic router negotiation, there are no more syncing issues or loss of data. Our routers can adjust to handle increased call volume by analyzing how each piece is altering the data. It then is programmed to hand it off in the same way it was received. This structure also works with your systems firewalls so that we don’t have to alter anything inside of your security features to have it work effectively with the router. Having multiple data points dramatically reduces downtime.

The Perfect Greeting. Every Time.

It is crucial that when a customer calls a business that two things happen, first they are greeted (letting them know they called the right place), second someone needs to answer the phone. Sounds simple right? Wrong! Too often I take my business elsewhere because I can’t reach the company I am calling.
Food for thought, answering services have shown that 85% of people that get a voicemail or busy signal don’t leave a message or call back. Furthermore, every minute you wait to call them back reduces your chances of reviving the sale by 75% within the first 5 minutes. If you knew there was a service that significantly improved the chances of capturing more calls wouldn’t you jump on it? I Did!
In a world of instant gratification, there is no room for missed calls or voicemails. In the old days when you left someone a voicemail, you waited for them to call you back because you didn’t have the competitor’s phone number. Nowadays with the internet, I can search for a CPA firm and find all 15 of them within a 15-mile radius then call them one by one and the first one to pick up gets my business. Guess what happens if I get a voicemail or busy signal? You guessed it, moving on.
Unfortunately, that is the way it is now and VoIP phone solutions are the best way to give yourself the upper hand. A virtual receptionist allows you to greet every customer perfectly every time. It also lets your customer know that someone will be right with them encouraging them to stay on the line.
Voicemail to email allows missed calls to be sent to your email as an attached audio file. This allows you to access your voicemails after hours or while you are away from your desk. Getting back to your customers sooner than later is a sure way to earn their business and loyalty.
Automated forwarding allows you to send calls to an answering service (or even your cell phone) who takes down the customer’s information and sends you a text notifying you that someone wants to give you their money!
Sounds pretty good right? Well, that doesn’t even scratch the surface of what a VoIP service can do but it’s a great introduction. Stop missing calls today and start taking advantage of those missed revenue opportunities. Call Mango Voice today to find out more!

Is your business fax putting your company at risk?

business fax mango voice
In the age of modern technology, there are many business practices that we assume are safe. Using a fax machine with a fax line used to be a common practice. Now, there are several online companies that offer quick and easy electronic business fax services. The thing that they don’t tell you is that those important documents may be putting your small business at risk.

Why Business Fax Machines Are Out

As they are considered old technology and are thus often neglected security-wise, fax machines pose potential risks to every organisation where they are used. Yet few companies have a comprehensive and enforced policy covering their use. The main problem is that a fax does not guarantee confidential transmission, either for incoming or outgoing faxes. That means it isn’t a naturally secure way to exchange sensitive information.
Computer Weekly – Michael Cobb

Ok, so that beast in the copy room that makes crazy noises when you press the wrong button that’s called an old-school fax machine and if you are lucky enough to remember their melodious noise, then you probably know just how great they are to work with. Let’s also reminisce over the extra line on our business phone system bill that includes the added expense of the unnecessary fax line. Somehow fax machines are always bigger than they need to be, temperamental, and ridiculously complicated.
Enter the modern age. There is an app for everything. Mango Voice recently announced their mobile app available on both iTunes for iOS devices and Google Play for Android devices. So we definitely get the app thing. What you should be aware of is the security involved in business fax transmission. To do that, we’re going to need to explore the process of sending a business fax.

Online Fax Services are Better?

The fax machine: a large box that squeaks whilst taking a piece of paper and eating it, then spitting it out the other side in an obnoxious fashion – repeatedly. This is usually accompanied by sounds that are similar to a broken dial tone that screams. Cherish the memories of your dear busted business fax machine. What else do we do? We have to send fax messages in the world of business.
You scurry to an online solution. With these fancy online business fax applications, they simplify the process by scanning or taking a picture of your documents and then hurling them precariously into the interweb. Cyberspace then passes it around like a hot potato until it lands at the destination that you specified. But what you may not know is that your business fax may have pulled a “Hansel and Gretel” and left a cute breadcrumb trail on the way. With the right information, in the right place, evil ner-do-wells that stalk the internet for vulnerabilities could hack their way into your insecure file data and compromise your important documents.
Not only do un-encrypted messages get passed around with insecure online fax services, but the message once it arrives may sit in someone’s insecure email inbox for days, weeks or months waiting for an email hacker to come along and find your sensitive information.

Security Measures and Why You Should Care

Why do you care about hackers that have all the time in the world to find random fax messages to hack and exploit? Because Fortune Magazine writes articles like this one about “5 huge security breaches at big companies” where the major problem was that no one was paying attention to small details similar to our fax debacle at hand. If huge companies like Walmart, Target, Apple and Home Depot have these problems, odds are your small company may fall into a security trap.
Let’s review quickly the reasons for using an online fax service:

  1. Your fax machine was too terrible to consider fighting with this morning (assuming you have one), there is not possibly enough coffee.
  2. The documents that you are sending are far too important for just email.
  3. And lastly, said documents are also too special and time sensitive for snail mail.

This creates the need in the wonderful world of business for a fax transmission to be necessary.

The Best Cloud-Based Business Fax Solution

Secure Fax by Mango VoiceNow that we all understand the problem, let’s queue the cherubic angel voices with an “ah” as we introduce the new-and-improved extra SECURE Mango Voice Business Fax. We actually listen to our clients and customers. When we hear that a feature could be better, we want to be better. While we have always had security protocols built in, we saw an opportunity to lock down fax transmissions with an added layer of security. We are always staying up-to-date with the latest technology and using it to take care of our clients. Luckily, we have some talent on our team and they know all about creating awesome programs.
Mango Voice Secure Business Fax adds all the security in all the right places. Where other services claim that they offer “secure” fax, the transmission is not nearly as protected as you may think. That’s why we re-thought the process of secure fax making it easier for you to share time-sensitive information without worrying about security issues.
You can still fax from your mobile device by adding an attachment or taking a picture, then using our business fax feature, we will send your message. We’re not really into slinging faxes into cyberspace without all the added safety features. We encrypt the transmission and store your data in our super-secure cloud-based server. Some in the office lovingly refer to this server as “the vault”. Your business fax message doesn’t leave our vault. The recipient of your message then receives instructions with a 2-step verification process for accessing your secure fax message from our vault. It is only available for a specified time frame and then our program encrypts the file once again and locks it up safe.

Phones. Made Simple

Mango Voice lays it out on your cloud-based business phone system couldn’t be easier. Quickly see a list of your files and access them whenever you need. We’ll worry about all the locks and keys and keep your files safe. Trust me, this process is easier than trying to guess if your fax machine is confirming that you sent your fax transmission while the person on the other end watches their machine blink and squeak. Oh, and good luck knowing if you inverted those last two digits. Perhaps the people at that misdialed number will enjoy your message?
Don’t let fax machine security risk happen at your small business. Find a better way to send business fax messages. Do it even better with Mango Voice and save time, money and your ear lobes. Mango Voice offers a full list of features with all of our small business phone system plans.
