The 6000 has proven to be exactly what our company needed. I am not an expert on the MCK line or on telecom in general - (a consultant bought and installed the box for us). However, I can tell you that the 6000 was a perfect fit because of it's multiuser capability. There were six people in the remote office and the 6000 we purchased allows for up to eight voice connections. It appears that the 3000 is more for single user situations ... but I may be wrong.
Tech Support update: The morning after I posted my first tech support update, I received a follow-up so that a replacement box could be be sent out. It could have been coincidence, but it almost makes me think they may have someone that reads this board. Nothing wrong with that - shows they are interested in what investors (even us little guys) have to say about their company. Keep in mind that I was up and running without the replacement since there were only 1-2 ports that I suspected to be bad. I repeat that overall the tech support experience was a very positive one and led me to believe that they care about their customers. Read my previous post for more details.
If you have read this far then answer this question for me: How does a company with many remote locations successfully implement this product? Take for instance the recent release where they had a company that was planning to implement this product in 160 branch offices and tie them back to a central PBX. I believe this company was a stock broker company. Question #1: Are they going to have to stack 160 of these boxes at their data center and feed each of them into their PBX? Question #2: How does that affect formerly local calls made out of their branch office to local clients. Say for instance that a branch office is in Houston but the data center is in Dallas. That means that any calls that the Houston office makes to local clients would really be LD calls. Would this actually work ... especially in sitations where workers would be logging many, many, hours on the phone??
Enough talk about the company - what about the stock? If it had risen this high over a three-year period I would not even consider taking some profits. But this kind of rise on no news and with the supply about to be doubled it sure is tempting to walk away. I wish Robertson would give a comment on why they support this move and how they expect it to benefit the shareholders.
Well it looks like it is here!! Just saw the news (alert only) on Yahoo this morning. According to the IPO prospectus (believe it or not I actually tried reading through it!!) this can only be done after six months from the original offering unless (Robertson Stephens, etc. approves). So I suspect this won't happen until late April. If they did approve anything earlier, then you would have to think RS would only be doing something to benefit long-term since they hold (or at least held) 1/3 of the outstanding 3.8 Mil.
Dilution concerns??: I guess you can't really have any earnings dilution when you are at zero earnings? Float considerations: probably really good timing since we have gotten to ride this thing up on very thin float and with these extra shares it should take a little more selling to push it down. I still would not be surprised to see a short-term hit if anyone is actually willing to part with their shares!
Overall how do you find the 6000 (feature wise, capability wise, etc.)? I was thinking of picking up one of the MCK boxes for our office...not sure if I would get the 6000 or one of the 3000 series. What made you decide on the 6000? Anyway, glad to see an investor using a unit. It's always best when you can pick up valuable info on the boards...that's the stuff that leads to buying and holding, DD of your own and valuable company/product info, not some turkey posting MCKC to 300...MCKC the next RMBS...etcetcetc. Keep up the good posts.
