Amsterdam, The Netherlands and Cambridge, Mass. (PRWEB) September 09, 2013
Thinking Phone Networks, the leader in unified communications as a service (UCaaS), today announced the availability of high quality unmetered voice service to allow enterprise companies to make unlimited desk phone, mobile UC client, and softphone calls to fixed line and mobile users throughout Western Europe, the United States, and Canada at a fixed per user rate (see list of supported European countries below).
Thinking Phone Networks customers can select ThinkingVoice PBX service or the complete ThinkingSuite UC solution, the latter of which includes mobility communications support for smartphone and tablet devices. Integrated into all of Thinking Phone Networks’ UCaaS services is a powerful analytics capability that gives enterprises greater visibility into workforce activities and the ability to streamline business processes for competitive advantage.
“We are truly excited to be the first player in the European market to offer unlimited fixed rate calling via a complete cloud PBX service with best-of-breed features and functionality,” said Ronald Rubens, Thinking Phone Networks vice president – Europe, Middle-East, and Africa. “Our pricing allows enterprise companies the opportunity to control costs and cost-effectively move their communications services to the cloud with an award-winning and deeply-integrated platform.”
Positioned by Gartner, Inc. as a “Leader” in the 2012 “Magic Quadrant for Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS), North America” report (by Daniel O’Connell and Bern Elliot, published November 19, 2012), Thinking Phone Networks offers a full suite of communications services spanning voice, mobility, video, analytics, presence and messaging, contact center, and conferencing. Services are deployed from a resilient multi-data center cloud infrastructure with hardened facilities located in the United States and Europe to serve the needs of global enterprise customers.
“All new and emerging communications and collaboration services are being offered as cloud solutions, consistent with the increasing trend toward procuring IT in the software as a service (SaaS) model,” noted Steve Blood and Bern Elliot, Gartner analysts. “During the next five years, we anticipate that this trend will fundamentally change the traditional ROI model for premises-based communications solutions, in which IT leaders now typically have to build a business case for the capital purchase of perpetual licenses.”

With ThinkingSuite, enterprises benefit from best-in-class communications services along with significant upfront capital and ongoing operational cost savings compared to legacy premises hardware such as traditional PBX systems.
