UniVoIP, a provider of IP-based communications solutions including a virtual PBX, recently revealed it has launched its proprietary Unified Communications (News - Alert) (UC) platform –OfficeConnect version 5.01—designed to address the business telephony needs of its customers.
OfficeConnect boasts several robust features that gives customers access to an enterprise class phone system with no required additional hardware to buy. It allows employees to connect with each other and clients, no matter where they are and they can connect with different locations including international offices by using a single phone number.
With UniVoIP, any required routers and all set-up fees can be rolled into one low monthly lease,
Additionally, Version 5.01 is now enhanced with wireless and cordless support including support for Mitel DECT (News - Alert) and handsets and headsets on the Mitel 5330, 5340, and 5360 IP Phones.
Another attractive feature of OfficeConnect is the distinctive ringing, which gives subscribers the ability to choose between pre-defined ring tones. Users can then set the ring tone and differentiate the tone based on whether the call is originated internally or externally. In essence, this capability allows users to differentiate between calls targeted directly at their extension versus group calls.
With advanced call features and virtual PBX (News - Alert) functionality, OfficeConnect is more powerful than any traditional premise-based phone system. Simply plug in a phone at a new location and you are ready to start calling. Moves, adds and changes are all done through a Web portal.
With UniVoIP OfficeConnect, customers also benefit from a single vendor deal. There is no separate phone system vendor, long-distance service provider, local phone lines provider, Internet service provider and the maintenance firm.
OfficeConnect services are all delivered over the Internet or other private connection. The service is hosted in the cloud at UniVoIP's secure and fully redundant datacenter.
There are many benefits of unified communications overall. And in a recent piece focusing on Nextiva, a provider of business phone systems that offers virtual PBX functionality, TMCnet noted the company’s offering powers a dramatic slash to costs, improves productivity, and enables seamless integration with an existing network infrastructure, helping any type of business to keep its competitive edge in an increasingly expanding vertical.
