Be a part of the Unified Communications future
Beatriz Castanheira @ 17 May
With IPBRICK's "telephone center" you have four ways of communication at your disposal - Voice, Videoconference, Chat and Email. The time when you had to dial someone's phone number is over now! With IPBRICK.UCoIP, the four ways of communication are easily accessible through a click, without having to memorize phone extensions or emails.
You only need to choose the person with whom you wish to communicate, searching by name or department, and you can easily start a conversation.
If you still wish to stay linked to the past, but with one foot in the future, you can always connect your phones to the telephone center and continue to communicate in an old fashion way. You can still click in the telephone icon of the person that you wish to contact and place the call on your phone.
Does it really make sense to keep using your old phone when you can make calls, videocalls, videoconference, send instant messages and emails, everything through a computer or a tablet (at just one click away)?
If you still have doubts that the Unified Communications solution of IPBRICk is going to put your company one step ahead in corporate communications, just watch the video and ask for an account to try the solution!
18 years overcoming challenges
Beatriz Castanheira @ 04 May
On the 5th of May, IPBRICK, S.A. completes 18 years!
18 years ago we began our journey in the world of Open Source solutions for companies. Since then, many were the challenges that we set ourselves, the first of which was the creation of IPBRICK OS, which allowed to take these solutions to a wider range of clients. Over time, we specialized IPBRICK OS for it to become an important reference among Open Source solutions dedicated to Corporate Communications.
Since we are a company of challenges, the most recent one was the development and commercialization of IPBRICK solutions in Private Cloud, whose installation and configuration is made through an almost 100% automated process, that leaves behind the physical servers and the procedures that require too much human intervention.
Looking back, aware that it was a long journey, at the age of 18 we can state that today IPBRICK is a brand that has been able to accompany the market trends and that it is now considered a worldwide reference in the area of Corporate Communications, also in Private Cloud now.
Thanks to you, to our partners and clients, who accompany us and helped us build this journey.
We are a happy company to know you are still on that side.

Located in the Central Region of Portugal, Ovar is know as the Museum City of Azulejo (portuguese tiles). There is even who consider that walking through Ovar is like strolling in an open-air museum, where we encounter beautiful tile panels on every corner, which enrich the architectural heritage of the city. But is beauty is not the only thing that makes it stand out. In Ovar we can find the Dr. Francisco Zagalo Hospital, which is a reference in healthcare provision and stands out for offering a hospital service of excellence and proximity, to the population. Looking forward to keep assuming itself as a hospital unit of reference, it started a project of document dematerialization with the help of IPBRICK, S.A. and in partnership with Fullcom.
Currently, the approximately 160 users of the Hospital of Ovar use iPortalDoc, the Document and Process Management solution of IPBRICK, to manage the processes: Correspondence, Internal Information, Quality and Financial. They use the Correspondence process to handle the received and sent Correspondence. The Internal Information process, to manage information notes, internal communication, authorization of terms of liability and registers of material in the operating room. They use the Meetings Module, to manage the meetings of the Board of Directors, as well as the Contracts Module, to manage contracts with suppliers. The complaints that arrive at the hospital are managed in the Quality Process.
The project, inserted in the action SNS sem papel 2020 (a portuguese action that consists in transforming the national health service into a paperless service), has revealed itself as a success in the dematerialization of registers and processes, which are now managed by a set of applications, among them iPortalDoc, and, thus, are completely dematerialized. In addition, they are promptly and safely handled, and all their information is associated to each process, avoiding the circulation of information in paper format and its subsequent printing.
