Gizmo Project for Business Debuts; All Calls Free Plan Plus Asterisk PBX Support Helps Companies Call Free and Tap High-End Features.

SAN DIEGO -- SIPphone, Inc., developers of the free Gizmo Project Internet calling and IM software, today announced their All Calls Free calling plan is available for businesses worldwide, providing significant savings for small to mid-sized companies who want to enjoy free calling between co-workers and/or remote offices. Any business using the free Asterisk PBX software, or other premium PBX solutions, can also boost savings and workforce efficiency with access to high-end features previously only available to large businesses.

Using Gizmo Project as an office softphone, workers can easily place PC-to-PC calls without the burden of special VoIP phones or the expense of traditional phone call charges. Further cost-savings occur when employees use Gizmo Project to make free calls to landlines and mobile phones of co-workers in 60 countries under the All Calls Free plan. The United States, Brazil, and most European and Asian countries are included and a full list of countries may be found at Calls to other countries, or calls to people who do not have Gizmo Project are billed at the industry-low rates found at

"Large companies have been able to link offices together and use the Internet to save money on inter-company communications. Now small- and mid-size businesses can also have their employees call each other for free no matter where they are located," said Michael Robertson, chairman and CEO of SIPphone. "Companies running the Asterisk PBX or other premium PBXs also gain a new communications tool that can route calls through almost any network, allowing mobile workers to be reached anywhere as if they were physically in their office," Robertson added.

A wide variety of Asterisk PBXs, premium PBXs developed by such companies as Trixbox, SwitchVox, Epigy, webFones, and other SIP-based PBXs are supported by Gizmo Project. Workers can be called via their PBX or directly through the Gizmo network.
