EasyITSP - What ya need!
What do I need to do it myself?First you need a plan. How many customers are you expecting, what is your budget, what are your end goals, how quick do you want things running, how reliable do you want your service.
Decide what server/host, voip provider, and merchant you want to use. We have researched it and been down that road already. We would HIGHLY appreciate it if you would go though us if you choose one of our reccomended providers, this way we can get referalls to help pay for our services.
Server: We have dealt with Serverbeach/Peer1 Hosting for a while, and are pleased with them. They have good prices, and awesome customer service and uptime. Multiple locations across the US and Canada is a bonus also.
Voip Provider: After working with multiple voip providers, we have stuck with Voip Innovations/Global Ops. They are rock solid, have great customer service, and are upgrading and rolling out new features constantly.
Merchant: We chose our merchant for the API. Merchant One has an online payment portal, with monthly recurring billing if needed. We plan to integrate Merchant One into EasyITSP, to allow EasyITSP to do all the billing, invoicing, and receipts. If you are interested in this, please contact us to help pay for development.
