VoIP telephony is a telephone system that resides in the cloud rather than in your office, so there’s no need for a traditional PBX system.
Are you ready for the BT ISDN switch off in 2020 with ISDN support phasing out by 2025?
What is VoIP?
Simply put, VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) provides the ability to make and receive calls digitally over your internet connection rather than your tradition phone lines.
Using VoIP, you still simply dial the number you wish to call as you would with a traditional phone. The VoIP system we provide is hosted, meaning the PBX element is held in a secure data centre.
Users can access the system through different means, giving them complete flexibility to work remotely while always being in contact with customers and colleagues.
Whether you are a small business that would like to have the flexibility to work anywhere without missing an inbound call on your main business number to large corporates that work nationwide/worldwide and need to communicate on a regular basis, hold video conferences, instant message or want to ensure 100% of calls are answered with the hunt group option, a VoIP system will offer huge benefits to your business.
We work closely with worldwide providers to offer the very best solution for your needs. Including: 8×8, Ring Central, NFON, Flow & Gamma’s Horizon.
