Goldfish’s founder and CEO recently spoke at the UPRISE Festival in Dublin.
Yesterday we attended the UPRISE Festival in the Dublin’s RDS and took the nice Lotus Exige sports. It is driven by Lloyd Spendlove and sponsor it every year. But that wasn’t the star of the show, that our new web-phone the Babelfi, which launched at event.
The Babelfish is the first web-phone to be developed by an Irish company. It allows calls to be made directly from within a web-browser. So it is perfect for hot-desking, remote workers and companies, such as call centres, that want to streamline their operations.
Fans of Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy will recognise the name. It was the fish that put into Arthur Dent’s ear to translate what the aliens were saying. This won’t translate foreign languages, but it will translate what you say into zeros and ones and send it across the super-fast VoIP ne
The Babelfish has been designed by Goldfish as an alternative to traditional softphones, in order to simplify how their customers, make and receive calls. Some of the larger companies they work with have requested a cloud-based phone that can be accessed by their staff from anywhere, without the need for a download and configuration. The result is the Babelfish, which can be accessed via a simple link, with all calls made and received encrypted within a web-browser.

Most customers access our numbers with a VoIP handset, also know as a SIP phone. However, a lot of customers also use a softphone, either as their main phone or in addition to a handset.
All Goldfish customers get a free 3CX softphone for each user on their accounts. There is a preconfigured download in the MyGoldfish Control Panel. It comes pre-configured to the account with the SIP ID and user name already included.
The 3CX can used independently to answer or make calls via your Goldfish number or it can be used alongside our Grandstream handsets and the GSWave app. If you have handset, app and softphone confguredm then if you receive a call they will all ring at the same time.
Our latest wonder of the week brings back images of white suits and screaming girls. But since his boy band heyday, Keith Duffy, Ireland’s favourite member of Boy Zone (sorry Ronan) has moved into the world of tyres with Tyreland.
Now we think they missed a trick by not renaming the company Tyre Zone in Keith’s honour, but by the time he partnered with the company last year, Tyreland were already a well established and respected brand across Dublin.
Just like us, Tyreland began trading 7 years ago during the recession and has grown steadily since. Tyreland are now using Goldfish’s VoIP telecoms services in all six of their branches. Five across Dublin: Glasnevin, Clarehall, Sword, Kimmage and Clearwater; and a sixth branch in Navan. The company already employs 20 staff and is looking for further sites for expansion.
Tyreland offer great value for money – saving motorists up to 20% on their new tyres – and now they also do mobile tyre fitting. So, if you can’t get to any of their branches, Tyreland Mobile will come to you and change your tyres on the spot, at home, work, or given the fine weather, even down the beach. What’s not to love?

Given Keith’s showbusiness heritage it was only a matter of time before he got in on the action and started to help the promote Tyreland on camera. Check out the videos below.
