Rack-Soft Releases 4PSA VoipNow 1.5 and Provides New Business Opportunities


Wilmington, DE -- (ReleaseWire) -- 10/10/2007 -- October 9, 2007 - Rack-Soft announced today the latest version of the hosted PBX solution for Internet Service Providers, Hosting Service Providers, and enterprises. 4PSA VoipNow 1.5 includes calling cards and callback features, prepaid billing capabilities, outgoing routing rules control on customer level, many enhancements in the system management process, new SOAP API functions, more powerful IVR administration capabilities, and over fifty other new features and improvements. The new release increases productivity, improves user interaction, and provides new business opportunities to xSP market.

The new prepaid billing is effective even on concurrent calls. All accounts on the reselling chain are charged simultaneously, in real time, for phone calls made by their extensions. “4PSA VoipNow supports both prepaid and postpaid billing. With postpaid billing the provider is able to enforce usage limits to prevent abuse, while prepaid billing guarantees that the client can spend only the amount available in his account. The account can be recharged in seconds using the system’s web interface or through the SOAP API, from third party applications”, said Bogdan Carstoiu, 4PSA VoipNow architect.

4PSA VoipNow 1.5 focuses on delivering new services and helping providers expand their business. “The callback and calling card extensions are designed to help our customers setup calling card and callback services without additional investments. With minimal technical knowledge, the time required to design, deploy, and test such services is reduced to several hours. When used as an enterprise PBX, 4PSA VoipNow’s callback and calling card features can greatly reduce phone bills.”, added Mr. Carstoiu.

4PSA VoipNow 1.5 can be installed in high availability environments. The new version also implements internal optimizations that prepare it for the 4PSA VoipNow Cluster, the next generation PBX solution from Rack-Soft, scheduled for 2008.

The product can be installed through the command line installer or by using the ISO image. 4PSA VoipNow 1.5 is also packed for high density virtualized environments, Virtuozzo/OpenVZ, application templates being available for download.
