Chicago Business VoIP Launches New Service
By Anshu Shrivastava, TMCnet Contributing Editor
Chicago Business VoIP (CBV), a local provider of hosted phone solutions, has launched a new service providing small businesses with a phone/fax communication solution. The service is targeting firms with less than ten employees, or multi-site companies with ten or fewer users per location.
Company believes that the small businesses in Chicago and across the US are facing two specific challenges when it comes to communication services. These challenges are the upfront capital investment required to purchase, maintain, and manage a phone system; and the high cost for long distance and local calling, specifically Bands A, B (News - Alert), and C traffic in IL.
The only investment that the new solution from CBV requires is the Cisco (News - Alert) IP Phone, according to company officials. The solution uses clients existing internet access, and replaces the need to order phone/fax lines from the local phone company; phone lines.
Company officials said they are offering two free reports to help businesses lower their overall cost for voice communications. The first report is the “Per minute voice usage fees -- What your local provider doesn't tell you.” This report offers a complete understanding of hidden per minute usage fees.
This report, officials said, helps businesses gain an understanding of how the local provider makes money from the business for voice communication services. The second report is the “VoIP believe the hype,” a one page description which offers 25 specific phone system features.
Chicago Business VoIP helps small businesses leverage voice technology, scale their business, increase productivity. The company offers clients with a feature rich, flexible alternative to traditional phone solution. The service is delivered over a network built end to end with products and services from Cisco Systems (News - Alert).
“CBV was launched to give small businesses access to the same technology larger business have access to, at a price ANY small business can afford,” said Tim Conti, president at Chicago Business VoIP.
He also said in a statement that with the CBV solution all clients are “guaranteed access” to the latest in voice technology, free of charge for the life of the contract.
