If you sell goods or services to different levels and systems of government, there is something you should know. The process is very different from typical B2C or B2B selling.

At Carolina Digital Phone, we are proud to be a trusted provider of VoIP services for government systems. Here are seven reasons why we have...

Our customer Gates County contacted us when the IP phones that their employees took home didn’t work. We quickly discovered the root cause: Gates County had Power-Over-Ethernet (POE) in their corporate office.

Most employees didn’t have POE at home, and so their IP phones weren’t getting any power. That’s when Joan Wilkerson, one of our amazing Major Account Executives, sprang into action! She had several IP phone power...
