Take Your Communications to the Cloud

Rather than using traditional phone lines, today’s modern office phone systems use the internet to enable voice communications (and so much more). Rather than being tethered to point-to-point phone cables, communications are enabled by “the cloud,” i.e., the internet.  Your virtual phone system resides on the internet backbone, so there’s no investment for expensive, on location equipment.

With cloud-based communications, you don’t have to buy a server, switches, or special phone equipment—you can use any device that is able to connect to the internet to communicate within your network. You always have access to the latest, most up-to-date communications technology, since updates are done through your telecom company in the cloud rather than onsite at your premises.


More Features, Less Hassle

Taking your phone system to the cloud allows you to manage and connect every aspect of your business communication systems, so that important callers reach you the first me, every time. It gives you the ability to give out only ONE published phone number to your customers and allow them to reach you anywhere you choose: on your desk phone, your cell phone, and even your home phone—simultaneously. You’ll never need to set up manual call transfers again.

Cloud voice systems are incredibly easy to manage, too. Your business phone extension options are visible and manageable through a simple web page from anywhere in the world. Most plans offer call forwarding, transferring, caller ID with name, “follow me” automated call forwarding capabilities, and voicemail all at no extra charges. You can even have your voicemail delivered to your email, so you can listen on any internet-connected device.


Save Time and Money

Taking your business phone system to the cloud saves you money in multiple ways.

  • Eliminates long distance charges for communications between offices or phone extensions!
  • Only one phone system is needed for any number of physical locations.
  • Lower up front cost versus traditional phone systems.
  • Maintenance, repairs, technical support and programming assistance included with your monthly service fee.
  • Eliminates ongoing upgrade and replacement costs for onsite systems.

Cloud communications systems can be tailored to your business’s needs for security, reliability, and redundancy, making them a dependable, economical choices for all your business telecom needs.
