Vocalocity was founded in 2006 and is based in Atlanta, Georgia. The company was acquired by Vonage in 2013 and now operates under the name Vonage Business Solutions. All aspects of the Vocalocity business were operated inside the United States and its technology is completely owned and operated by the Vocalocity team. This is actually a very important point - did you know that most VoIP providers actually use third party technology to run their business? If your business phone service has an issue it sure is nice to know that your provider is responsible for their own technology thus ensuring a prompt resolution to any service down-time. In addition, creating new features and plugins for customers becomes a much easier task when you own the technology in-house. As the Vocalocity service is now under the Vonage umbrella, it remains to be seen if this continues to be the case.
Traditional business phone systems require customers to use expensive PBX equipment which usually has complex installation and time consuming maintenance.

All you require at your business is a decent Internet connection and IP phones and your calls are routed across the Internet by Vonage Business Solutions (Vocalocity) using state of the art technology. So what are the advantages of the Vonage Business Solutions Hosted PBX:
