I have to admit, it took me a while to get used to coworkers and industry colleagues referring to our business phone system as “disruptive.” Disruptive makes me think back to my 6th Grade classmate Todd Thrasher, the wild man who made noises in class, interrupted our lessons and refused to sit still.
But a business phone solution? Disruptive?
I’ve seen firsthand what a great business VoIP phone system can do for businesses, so I would tend to describe the system with words like, “empowering,” “easier” or “next-generation” – and for many businesses the most accurate description would be: “transformational.”
Why Our Business Phone Solution is “Disruptive”
I know now that applying the word “disruptive” to our solution is a matter of perspective. It’s true, a cloud-based business VoIP phone solution like ours absolutely disrupts the industry status quo that has long been controlled by legacy copper wire-based phone service providers.
The fact that SMBs are leaving their legacy providers in record numbers is understandably alarming to these providers. And the marketplace is quickly shifting in favor of reliable business VoIP solutions that offer more features and better pricing than old-school wireline services.
The Landscape Has Changed Forever
The contrasts between our solution and those of traditional providers are so striking, they remind us just how fundamentally business telephony has changed in recent years. Following is a quick list of some of the ways our “disruptive” approach assists businesses every day:
- Easy Setup: Once businesses have the basics needed to use our service – high-speed Internet connection, a router and compatible phones – a specialist can walk a customer through the easy setup in as little as 15 minutes. We port existing phone numbers and the transition is usually made with no downtime.
- No Contracts: We don’t require contracts, setup fees, activation fees or cancellation fees.
- Savings: Customers regularly save 30% or more* on their monthly phone service when they switch from their traditional, wire-based phone service carrier. They also enjoy international long distance rates that are 75 percent lower than traditional carriers.**
- Maximum Features: Our system comes preloaded with over 30 features such as Virtual Receptionist, Dynamic Caller ID, Mobile Apps, Desktop Plugins, Voicemail to E-mail and Call Conferencing. Add-on features include Call Recording, Call Monitoring, Paperless Faxing, Call Queues and Voicemail Transcription and many more.
- Mobile Capabilities: Outstanding mobile apps for iPhone and Android give employees the flexibility to make and receive calls anywhere, as if they are sitting in the home office.
- Online Applications: Major applications like our free Desktop extends all the power and control of the business phone system to the user’s computer desktop, enabling powerful plugins and other features that boost business productivity.
- A Cloud-based Solution. As companies around the world move their business systems to the cloud, our hosted PBX solution delivers a reliable, less-expensive and liberating alternative to traditional phone service. And you likely won’t miss that closetful of wires from your legacy system.
- Reliability: Our system configures to allow business continuity through events such as loss of power or Internet outages. We also run multiple, redundant data centers with systems and protocols that produce 99.999% uptime.
- Super Support: We pride ourselves on having expert support and training resources and the knowledgeable customer care team to assist any time – from customer onboarding to troubleshooting to any customer need that arises.
