Hosted telephony offers business owners the opportunity to review their telecommunications provision from an entirely different perspective. Hosted telephony requires no system hardware on site so there is minimal capital outlay. The telephony features such as voice mail and call recording are all held off site and can be employed on a 'pay as you go' basis. All you need is an internet connection to handle the call traffic.
Who Might Benefit?
- New Ventures
Why invest capital in a system that will probably be bigger than your current requirement? Pay on a monthly basis for only the services that you need.
- Growing Companies
Do you know what your requirements will be in 6 months time? Add additional users and features such as voice mail, as and when you need them.
- Seasonal Companies
Does your business change shape and size dependant on the time of year? With 'pay as you go' telephony you can avoid all that hardware being redundant for long periods.
- Technology Companies
Why call in the engineer when changes need to be made? Set up additional users and carry out all programming changes yourself from a simple management tool on your PC.
- Companies Offering Flexible Working
Do you have or plan to have personnel working from home? Using a simple broadband connection and a desk phone, your 'home workers' can operate just as if they were in the office.
How Does It Work?
In partnership with Inclarity Ltd, Whitethorn Telecom can provide a hosted telephony solution which is a software-based communications system that removes the need for an on-site telephone system. An application server provides basic telephony features such as call forwarding and call pick-up which are accessed via an internet connection. To access these services, the organisation connects the supplied telephone handsets into a Local Area Network (LAN) that includes a router and a data switch.
