“Creating new communications experiences.” #SFSBW2015 Interview with Ooma

#SFSBW2015 asked our sponsors to share insights, best practices, and examples of how they help small business owners flourish. Today we hear from Jim Gustke, VP of Marketing, Ooma.

What is your company’s mission?

Creating new communications experiences.

Today’s hyper-competitive marketplace is presenting new challenges and opportunities to many businesses. Has your company changed its approach to doing business to address the changing market?

More companies require employees to work outside the traditional office- and that requires telecommuting, staying connected while offsite, or catching up from home in the evenings.   Business tools and technologies have made that easier, but small businesses often get the short end of the stick with limited options that don’t offer the flexibility found in expensive enterprise solutions. We’ve built Ooma Office to help small businesses run more efficiently and stay connected from anywhere with enterprise level calling features available at a price small business can afford.Ooma Office

What is your company doing to help small businesses compete in today’s market?

Ooma’s smart communications platform makes small businesses run more efficiently and stay connected to the office from anywhere by delivering advanced business phone features from the cloud at an affordable price.

What are the trends you see when you think about the small business marketplace, and how will these trends shape the future of small business?

Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) technology is growing by 32% per year for business, fueled by the adoption of broadband Internet and cloud computing. Companies will continue to innovate as well as improve efficiencies and employee mobility using new technology tools.

Can you share one brief story about how your company is helping San Francisco businesses thrive?

As companies in San Francisco grow, Ooma’s smart communications platform delivers features to accommodate virtually any business situation all while reducing phone bills by up to 75%.  With Ooma, small businesses can invest their money where it matters most- growing their business!
