Ooma® to Provide Small Businesses With Affordable Big Business Phone Solution
PALO ALTO, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Ooma, Inc., the leader in smart home and business communication systems,
today announced the launch of Ooma Office, its first product
specifically designed to address the needs of small businesses. Ooma
Office, shipping Q2 2013, delivers a big business phone service to small
businesses with advanced features and service quality typically found in
far more expensive options.
"We believe that the size of a business should not determine phone
service quality and features. Ooma Office will help small businesses
save money and time while presenting themselves in the most professional
way," said Eric Stang, Chief Executive Officer, Ooma, Inc. "We're proud
to bring our consumer track record of crystal-clear voice quality and
the utmost reliability to the small business community."
Today, small businesses spend upwards of $100 a month for each line of
phone service. In contrast, Ooma Office costs just $19.99 per line each
month for unlimited calling in the U.S. and Canada.
Ooma Office helps small businesses communicate more effectively through
features that inspire confidence and professionalism. Key features of
Ooma Office include:
Virtual Receptionist: Automatically greets and directs incoming
calls and answers differently during business and non-business hours
Big Business Feature Set: Provides all business necessities
including extension dialing, music-on-hold, ring groups, conference
bridges, virtual numbers and many other features
Wireless Workplace: Ooma Linx remote phone jacks utilize DECT (News - Alert)
6.0 technology to allow easy installation and a wire-free workplace
Unparalleled Voice Quality: HD Voice technology delivers
Easy Line Expansion: Capable of hosting up to 10 lines and five
Compatibility: Works with analog telephones (no expensive SIP
phones needed) and fax machines. Small business owners can also choose
to use their exising phone number or select a new phone number at no
24/7 Customer Support: Easy do-it-yourself setup backed with
Most valuable to many small businesses is keeping remote workers
connected to the office. According to Forrester Research (News - Alert), 95 percent of
very small businesses (VSBs) have mobile employees and only half of VSBs
operate from a single office1. Ooma Office keeps mobile
workers connected with up to 15 virtual extensions, routed to external
numbers, allowing them to service customers whenever and wherever. The
Ooma Office online interface also allows remote access to settings (like
the virtual receptionist) to keep your business running smoothly from
just about anywhere.
The Ooma Office starter pack has a MSRP of $249.99 and includes the Ooma
Office Base Station and two Ooma Linx remote phone jacks to support up
to three phone extensions. The Ooma Office starter pack is expandable to
five phone extensions with the purchase of additional Ooma Linx devices.
