Quikteks has been serving the Fairfield area in New Jersey since 2002, providing IT support to small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs). When it found that many companies were moving toward cloud-based IT solutions for all their IT needs, it decided to enter into a partnership with 8x8 (News - Alert) Inc., a provider of cloud-based communications solutions.
As a result of the partnership, companies can now make full use of 8x8’s virtual office enterprise, which provides a cloud-based VoIP phone system and simultaneously access Quikteks’ wide range of IT services.
"Since the virtual PBX (News - Alert) system works in the cloud, companies with telecommuters can enjoy the professionalism of clients calling a PBX system while reaching workers at their home office without the caller knowing that the person is not in the office," noted Andrew Rich, CEO of Quikteks LLC, in a statement.
The advantages of a cloud-based VoIP phone system are many. Companies, regardless of their size, will have a reliable alternative to expensive PBX systems and experience the flexibility and cost savings of a hosted VoIP solution without having to invest in expensive PBX systems that are difficult and often frustrating to maintain.
Perhaps the best part of such a system is that it offers the full functionality of a regular PBX system that is housed on-site. Companies will have access to unlimited calling plans but experience lower monthly bills. As it is hosted in the cloud, it can be accessed by anyone, anywhere and at anytime and thus helps to keep everyone updated and in touch. And, being scalable, it can grow along with the growth of the company.
Moreover, there is no need for office space and no need for ugly cables and wires, so typical of the traditional PBX. Also, VoIP PBX can be customized according to the needs of the business..
By partnering with 8x8, Quikteks will enable companies to utilize virtual PBX along with a wide range of IT services – all from a single location.
