Parker is a cutting edge Toshiba Dealership. One of just a handful of Toshiba Dealers nationwide that are allowed to particpate in Toshiba's Beta Program. We test Toshiba's newest products and get to give our input back to development before other Toshiba Dealers even hear about the product. We are sworn to secrecy of what Toshiba is working on next but we can tell you we were recently involved with the VIPedge, IPedge, R4 CIX processor, CIX40 System, the Web Callback application, and the Strata Messaging Voice Mail on LUCA.
Located in the San Francisco Bay Area, we service the greater Bay Area from Sacramento to San Luis Obispo and everywhere in between. We also manage and serve our national clients across the United States through the Toshiba National Account program.

VIPedge - TOSHIBA's NEW CLOUD SOLUTION
Toshiba has virtualized their IPedge VoIP PBX system to create "Virtual IPedge" or VIPedge!

OLD TOSHIBA SYSTEMS:
We currently have a trade in program for old Toshiba systems toward new Toshiba Systems. Ask us!
A customer told us that the phone guy they had used for years had gone out of business. When they called another local authorized dealer, they were informed that they only had one tech available to deal with the older Toshiba systems and he was booked for several weeks. Then they called us. With several techs with over 25 years of Toshiba experience and a supply of used parts we can easily service the older Toshiba product. Older Toshiba is still viable and we can support it without requiring an upgrade, replacement, or putting a maintenance contract on your system. Of course, we can usually offer several levels of upgrade to stabilize or modernize your system now or over time. We'd be happy to discuss servicing your older Toshiba system.
Comcast Internet Increases Bandwidth
Comcast has increased bandwidth again! 100/20 Internet (some would say 20x DSL) is now $199/mo. So if your lucky enough to have Comcast in your area you should at least consider it. Give us a call to get the good and the bad.

We now have the choice of CIX application server(s) (typically flat pricing) or the IPedge application "All-in-One" server (priced per user). Interestingly, these servers (3 sizes) can grow into full IPedge systems by applying the proper licensing.
This can add many big features to a small system at a very economical price. Initially this includes Voice Mail, Strata Call Manager (GUI), and Meeting: Audio Conference bridge, web conferences, and video conferencing (separate or all 3 in a single session). We speculate that ACD will follow shortly. Toshiba will start shipping these on April 8th (We had a head start and we are installing our first one now).
