In 2017 Carolina Digital Phone will are rebranding ourselves name to better represent our nationwide coverage of our services as DigitalPhone.io. Deciding on a name that represented our company, mission, and values was not an easy undertaking. After dozens of brainstorming sessions, whiteboard lunches, and late nights with the team, we selected “DigitalPhone.io” for several reasons.
The “Digital Phone” part of our name represents the Digital Technology Age we represent in the Telephone industry: helping our clients grow their unified messaging with Cloud-based Technology. We are the experts in Telephone services and merging this service into a digital cloud-based platform that is a major part of how we innovate for our clients.
The “io” piece represents input and output, which is at the core of our company values. We actively seek our clients’ input on how we can better enhance our platform our output to meet their needs. This leads to better, more efficient output of features and services that serve our clients’ needs more effectively. We took it because it refers to ‘input-output’. And our clients (mostly tech savvy people) understand it like so. While we are not a start up company, the .io top level domain has become a popular alternative for startups. Our company started in 2000 with deep roots in the internet server hosting and cloud-based services find ourselves rebranding ourselves based on the new more advanced technologies we are offering today as we did not offer 17 years ago.
For us, DigitalPhone.io was future-minded, much like our platform, culture, and clients. We are passionate about creating the most innovative communications and technology services and digital platform, that will provide services for or clients for many years to come.
Why does it matter?
It matters because everything we are – from our name to our solutions – is focused on bringing you the best and most innovative technologies available.
Our name changed to better reflect our growing role in the unified communications and digital telephone communications from your desktop, notebook or smartphone device. We are proud of our influence in the communications and technology industries and are well-positioned to reach additional markets, helping new clients in need superior technologies.
We are thrilled that our brand is now fully aligned with our mission and values. We look forward to sharing more as we continue to provide the best solutions and care for our clients.
