A recent Siemens study found that more than 40% of the work week is spent managing communication inefficiencies. Many of these communication inefficiencies are a result of email overload, telephone tag, and constant interruptions throughout the day from your inbox or phone. Email and phone calls cause interruptions in your work day, making you and your team less productive. 

Better, smarter communication solutions can reduce wasted time, boost productivity and increase profits. At Voxer, we understand what wastes time at companies, and what helps them become more productive. For nearly five years, we've worked to develop one of the smartest and quickest communication solutions on the market: Voxer Business

We call Voxer Business 'The Next Generation of Push-to-Talk' because Voxer gives you the instant voice you get with traditional push-to-talk solutions, coupled with the respond when you want to convenience of texting. Here are two ways Voxer Business can drastically reduce the amount of inefficient communication at your business:

1. Cut Down on Phone Calls: If a phone call is made each time something needs to get done, large amounts of time are spent dialing numbers, waiting for someone to pick up, exchanging pleasantries, leaving voicemails and so on. Over time, this can be hugely expensive for a business. Voxer Business is a faster way to communicate because it's a live messaging service. Your voice can be heard in real-time, but everything is also simultaneously recorded and saved as a message. 

2. Reduce Email Volume: Almost everyone has been confronted at one point or another with email overload. A recent survey by the technology market research firm, Radicati Group, reports that a typical email user sends and receives about 105 emails per day! Much of the back and forth of email can be eliminated with Voxer Business. Replace the lengthy back and forth of email with short audio messages sent from your phone or desktop.

It's Wednesday, which means it's time for another installment of Walkie Wednesday. On Walkie Wednesdays, we share tips and tricks for the optimal Voxer experience. 

This week, we're diving into Location Sharing. Voxer's Location Sharing feature enables you to view your friend's location of the last vox they sent. With Location Sharing, friends can view your location too. This feature can come in handy if you're trying to meet up with a friend and want to know their ETA. Or if you are meeting up with someone and need to know where they are. It's especially useful if you are traveling with friends or a large group

How it Works: To view your location, open a chat and select a message you sent, select the location pin in the bottom right hand side of the chat and a map will appear showing the location of that vox. To view a friends location, perform the same steps. 

How to Turn it On/Off: You have the ability to turn Location Sharing off. By default, Location Sharing will be enabled in your Voxer app. To turn off Location Sharing or turn it back on go to settings > your account > switch "Location" on or off. 

Please read our iOS, Android, and WP8 support pages for more detailed instructions.

We recently launched Voxer for Web, the complete push-to-talk Voxer experience you have with the Voxer app, now available on your laptop or desktop! Our web team has been listening to your feedback, and we are happy to announce Voxer for Web 1.2.0 is now available for all Voxer Business users. Version 1.2.0 is complete with new improvements that will make your Voxer for Web experience the best yet. 

Improvements Include:

1. Increased Speed: Clicking the Push-To-Talk button used to create a one-two second lag before you could begin recording, this has been fixed and now works instantaneously! The increased speed cuts down the message sending time by over ninety-eight percent!

2. Chat Width: Chats are no longer stretched to fit the screen when switching from multiple chat windows to the only one open at a time. Chat windows are now sized accordingly to the width of the screen and number of chats you have open.

We hope these improvements make your experience on Voxer for Web even better! Questions or feedback? Please let us know in the comments below or reach out to us directly by emailing support@voxer.com

One of my passions has always been music. I've been a musician for more than 50 years now. For the last 15 years or so, my favorite thing to do is share music online through a little-known internet rare oldies station called Rockin' Radio

There are three other DJs besides myself on Rockin' Radio. Two of the guys live in Atlanta, which is where Voxer comes in. I love using Voxer's group chat feature to record the incredibly detailed and sometimes rather long conversations about radio that myself and the other DJ's have.

On more than one occasion, I've driven home from work (a 45 minute drive sometimes) and voxed the entire way! I'd use an iTrip and plug my iPhone into the dash, and we can talk and chat the entire way. What's awesome about Voxer is if I can't catch the conversation live, I can open the app back up and hear all that I missed and pick up right where I left off. 

Thanks Voxer for a great, great app!
