Virtual PBX services are gaining popularity as they dramatically improve inter-office collaboration and improve the overall customer experience.

More significantly, the research found that overall enterprise virtual PBX equipment market grew 6 percent over 2010.
The report also showed that the economic situation in North America and EMEA challenged the PBX and unified communications markets in 2011, causing small and medium businesses to not have the funds available to hire new employees at a rate that necessitated meaningful sales of PBX lines.
