Virtual PBXs are overtaking traditional hardware-based PBX (News - Alert) systems. The advantages of virtual PBX solutions are endless, a major one being the fact that it eliminates the expensive infrastructure costs at business premises.
Recently SimpleSignal, a provider of Unified Communications (News - Alert) and Collaboration (UC&C) solutions, launched a comprehensive solution that supports the communications strategies of modern businesses.
The new One Number solution for Unified Communications and Collaboration (UC&C) includes a complete range of integrated applications and calling features which enable customers to leverage advanced mobile PBX technology in their day-to-day business communications. The service extends all the functionality of a desk phone and advanced office PBX system to any mobile device.
The company also simultaneously unveiled a new text message system that gives users the added convenience to send and receive texts directly through their business phone number.
Some of the innovative features powered by the One Number offering include 4-digit dialing between extensions, call transfer, hunt groups, call centers, conferencing, call recording and more. Call swapping, which allows seamless transfers between a user’s deskphone and mobile phone with no interruption in the call, is also included.
“In today’s business world, companies are being built around their networks, not a physical location,” said Michael Sterl, VP of SimpleSignal (News - Alert), in a statement. “SimpleSignal’s One Number
UC solution is the “killer app” needed by these progressive, virtually-oriented businesses to enable mobility for their workers, while unifying their network.”
Offered as part of the company’s UC&C toolbox, the new text message service combines One Number with text messaging for the ultimate communications solution. The service offers the advantage of enabling users to access text messages from multiple mobile devices at the same time, without the need to disclose their personal mobile number.
