What is Hosted Telephony?

hosted telephony

Hosted telephony or as it’s sometimes called Cloud telephony or VoIP (voice over IP), is a means of delivering your business communications through the internet as opposed to an on premise system and is managed in a private data centre by your provider.

Here are just some of the benefits a 1CONNECT Hosted telephony solution can bring to your business;

  • Bria Stretto softphone app allows users to work from any device in any location and calls made and received are presented as a landline number.
  • Scale the number of users and features in line with your business needs on a pay as you use basis.
  • Users have access to a central portal where they can set their landlines to divert to mobile, join or remove Hunt groups and divert numbers to hot desk phones.
  • Free calls to landline and mobile number bundles included
  • Integrate CRM and email through our customer apps, providing real time analytics.
  • No upfront capital investment required, simply pay on a per user per month basis.
  • Full support package as standard.
  • New features and software updates applied in real time to all users via the Cloud, meaning you don’t have to worry about future proofing your communications.
  • Upgrade your current handsets to the latest models by leading vendors such as Cisco and Poly.
  • Hosted on Broadsoft platform offering the highest levels of reliability and disaster recovery.
  • No unnecessary line rental charges and expensive maintenance costs for on premise hardware providing significant savings on call charges.

ISDN Switch Off

BT have announced that traditional ISDN lines will be switched off in 2025 and are encouraging businesses to embrace the new technology and benefits that hosted telephony can provide.

If you are currently in a telephony contract due to expire before 2025, then now is the time to look at upgrading your business communications to one of our 1CONNECT packages.

Take a look at our video presentation to see how the ISDN switch off could affect you.

Integration

While there is great value is adopting a VoIP system, there is even greater value with integrating VoIP with the other software applications used by your organisation. Working with 1Connect, integration specialists Monda Go provide an application to connect your CRM, sales or accounting software with your VoIP system unlocking easier ways of working by releasing new features enhancing your communications.

Counterpath

a leading provider of Unified Communications (UC) software to enterprises, service providers and original equipment manufacturers.

1CONNECT offers the Bria Stretto softphone app for desktop and mobile platforms which can be used in conjunction with or as a replacement for your desk phone. After installing the app powered by Counterpath technology your chosen device immediately becomes another extension of your business phone system.

The use of the softphone is well-suited to a bring-your-own-device (BOYD) environment where the app can be used exclusively for calls related to your organisation, without the need to provide the user with another physical device.
