Asterisk is free open source software for building communications applications. It allows attached telephones to make calls to one another and even connect to other telephone services. Founded in 1999 by Mark Spencer of Digium, Asterisk was originally designed for Linux operating systems. Now, it runs on a variety of operating systems, including NetBSD, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, MacOS, and Solaris. It can also be installed on flash drives and embedded systems based on OpenWrt.
Though initially developed for companies in the United States, Asterisk eventually gained worldwide recognition because it is freely available under open-source licensing; and its modular and extensible design further added to Asterisk’s appeal.
At present, Asterisk has been deployed in 170 countries and installed on over a million servers worldwide. It has over 86,000 community members and gets around two million downloads every year.
The Asterisk software – one of the company’s most popular products – is a world leader in open source telephony systems. It can convert an ordinary computer into a feature-rich voice communications server. It can create and deploy a broad range of telephony applications and services, such as IP PBXs, VoIP gateways, call center ACDs, and IVR systems.
Another popular Asterisk product is the Switchvox IP PBX solution. While its system is based on the Asterisk open source software, it differs from the latter in that it is administered through a user-friendly graphical user interface rather than raw configuration files and custom scripts.
Aside from the standard features of a phone system, the Switchvox PBX also has unified communications capabilities like advanced voice messaging, instant messaging, desktop fax, drag and drop control, multi-party conferencing, and advanced IVR.
Asterisk also has specially designed IP business phones called Digium Phones. All models feature HD Voice, plug-and-play deployment, contextual soft keys, multiple line appearances, and advanced applications. These are the only phones that allow users to take full advantage of the Asterisk software.
Other Asterisk products include SIP trunking, telephony cards, and VoIP gateway.
Asterisk’s products have received plenty of recognition over the years. In 2015, Switchvox became the recipient of TMC’s Internet Telephony Product of the Year Award and Unified Communications TMC Labs Innovation Award. Switchvox also won the Unified Communications Excellence Award in 2015 and 2016.
Meanwhile, Asterisk’s IP phones was also awarded the 2016 Internet Telephony Product of the Year Award and 2014 Internet Telephony Excellence Award.
Switchvox Cloud had also been hailed as Product of the Year by Unified Communications and TMC on several instances.
After being acquired by Salesforce in 2011, the customer support software platform Assistly was remarketed as Desk.com and reimagined as Salesforce’s small business partner. As SaaS customer software for small businesses, Desk.com functions as an out of the box service option for small businesses that need a wide variety of customer service options.
Desk.com provides customer support software that is simple to use and clearly created with the small business in mind. The software is cloud-based and mobile, allowing its users multi-channel access that can turn emails, calls, and chats into tickets for customer support. In addition, Desk.com software allows its users to help customers through social media by giving them access to social media applications all rerouted through their inboxes. In this way, users can access all customer responses (from all platforms) at the same time. The software also allows customers to access their own accounts and monitor their own status, removing a need for certain service calls.
Desk.com software also allows users to quickly and efficiently analyze data, including customer satisfaction and performance. Companies can clearly see how their agents are performing, and the software can highlight changes or areas of concern. The software also works to scale for growing companies. It can easily be connected to other Salesforce products and a host of partner apps, including cloud-based business communication apps and many call center apps.
A review of Desk.com in PC Magazine notes that the program is simple, easy to use, aesthetically pleasing, and reasonably priced. While the review does comment that it may be too simple for larger businesses, the magazine claims that it is perfect for customer support tickets. Finances Online calls it one of the leading help desk software apps, noting its one channel where teams can “collaborate to handle, prioritize, personalize, and manage responses with efficiency to satisfy customer concerns via email, phone, chat, and social media.” Known for its excellent customer service, Desk.com won the Stevie Award in 2014 for best customer service.
