Many of our employees have families that have evacuated the affected area, and we all want to help in some way.
Austin, TX (PRWEB) September 21, 2008
As thousands wait for relief from the devastating effects of Hurricane Ike, hundreds of businesses are left without electricity or the vital phone services they need to keep their operations running. Press 8 Communications is reaching out to these companies, offering them their top of the line hosted VOIP business phone system at no cost while recovery efforts are underway.
"Here at Press 8 Communications, we have been touched by the difficulties our fellow Americans are having during yet another hurricane disaster," says company CEO Tamara Field. "Many of our employees have families that have evacuated the affected area, and we all want to help in some way."
Small businesses based in areas affected by Ike may miss hundreds or even thousands of calls from customers and distributors because of a lack of electricity and telecom systems. Press 8 is offering these companies the opportunity to have their phone systems up and running again in a matter of minutes through their VOIP based business phone system.
Through the Hurricane Ike Relief Effort businesses will receive free setup and free multi-line service while they wait for their regular communications systems to come back online. Once the system is set up incoming calls will be forwarded to Press 8's facilities, where their carrier-grade soft-switch and media gateways route the calls to individual cell phones or landlines.
Displaced workers can continue to do business from any location they are able to receive phone service, and every system includes a personalized voice mail system that can be accessed via any standard telephone, the Press web-based control panel, or forwarded to an email account.
Because the process of setting up the system and forwarding the calls can be accomplished in a short period of time, businesses can have full communications up and running by the end of the business day.
Companies who establish an account with Press 8 during the Hurricane Ike Relief Effort are under no obligation to continue their service when recovery efforts are complete. When their regular communications systems are online a quick phone call is all that is needed to cancel their account.
"It's just our way of giving back to those in need," says Field.
