VoipNow 2.0.4 is available. It also includes VoipNow Automation, the latest public release before GA version. GA version will be out at Parallels Summit 2010, maybe the largest hosting gathering in US. I am saying maybe because I don’t know what HostingCon will do this year and in the past last two years it was a disappointment. Anyway, 4PSA is a Silver Sponsor at Parallels Summit, so you are kindly invited to attend and visit us there.
How to test VoipNow Automation?
VoipNow Automation installs automatically with VoipNow 2.0.4, in order to access it you only need a license key that enables Automation. Such a license key is available here (fixed key, thanks), pay attention that this is an evaluation license and you can not install it on a production server.
The front-end (store and portal for the customer) is available here, usually it must be deployed on your company’s website.
It is not possible to upgrade from the previous release of VoipNow 2.0.4 with VoipNow Automation Beta to the final VoipNow 2.0.4 that contains Automation RC.
VoipNow Automation licensing
VoipNow Automation will be licensed per customer (do not confuse with extension, the customer is your end customer, a single entity that pays yours bills). There will be only leased licensing for VoipNow Automation.
In fact, starting with 1 March 2010 we will change licensing for all our VoipNow Platform products and we will withdraw the owned licensing option for service providers. More about this in a future post. The price for VoipNow Automation will start at 1EUR/customer per month and will lower with the number of customers. This will include a higher level of support for service providers and access to our consulting resources in order to help service providers grow the business faster.
VoipNow Automation special offer
Last week, I made an offer to subscribe to a list in order to get an owned license of VoipNow Automation for up to 1000 customers. We received quite a strong interest on this, unfortunately I didn’t mention how someone should register on the list (other that commenting on the article).
This being said, we declare the promotion open. The price of the license is 1000EUR and is subject to the optional 30% per year SUS (free updates and SUS support for another year). The offer is valid until 20 February 2010, to take advantage of the offer, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with reference code: OAUTO in email subject.
