Founding Father of the VoIP Industry Joins Fone.Do

nerdavid

It is not every day that someone who was instrumental in founding your industry wants to join your startup advisory board! That is why we are very excited to announce that Jacob Ner-David, the former chairman  of Deltathree, one the original VoIP companies is now officially part of our Advisory Board.

20 years ago when VoIP was just an idea, Deltathree was launched, went public,  eventually reaching a $1.5b market cap while changing the stodgy telecom industry for ever. Since then Jacob has been an investor and founder in numerous ventures, one of the latest being the Jezreel Valley Winery.

From the beginning, while I was just starting to formulate my thoughts about the initiative that eventually became Fone.Do, Jacob was instrumental in helping us define our vision and focus. Since then he has always been kind enough  to review our ideas and make fruitful introductions.  So it is only natural to have Jacob join our existing  advisors as an official member of the Fone.Do advisory board.

Looking forward to working together and building Fone.Do into a great company – Thank you Jacob for joining us!

Gmail. Can You Please Teach Me to Use Gmail??

If I would ask you to teach me, an internet savvy person,  how to use Gmail, what would you think? That I was probably joking – right? How about Facebook? Your banking? do you need training for those websites?

Of course not! Nowadays all web applications are designed and built to be easily understood by anyone who uses a web browser.  Well, all except business telephone services.

Installing and maintaining a small business phone system usually means calling a technician and spending hours configuring the system. Then each time you want to change something, again a technician is called to change the configuration. As someone who is a partner in a number of telephone companies, the situation is very familiar to me. Employees leave, new employees come, offices are closed for vacation and messages need to be changed. Each change like this calls for a modification in the phone system.

Why can’t a phone system be as simple as using Gmail? They definitely can!

Go ahead and try out Fone.Do. In only 2 minutes you can be up and running.
