Thousands of US businesses each year are switching their office communications systems to Voice over Internet Protocol, otherwise known as “VoIP”. The cloud-based technology is cheap, versatile, and service plans include loads of “big business” features that traditional telephone companies charge big bucks for. Meanwhile, business VoIP providers across the nation are battling it out for customers with specials and rock-bottom pricing. To make the process of choosing a VoIP service provider as easy as using the next generation technology, the telecom experts at VoIP-Catalog.com have compared the specials, service records, plan prices, and individual features of dozens of providers to announce their “Top Three Business VoIP Telephone Service Providers.”
Vocalocity was recently acquired by Vonage, and the Vocalocity website and customer service departments have both received some serious upgrades. Enterprise-class products meet SMB service in the new partnership, and to kick it off Vocalocity is offering either IP telephones, or additional months of service to new customers until October 31st. Vocalocity business VoIP can cut the office communications bill up to 80% in the first year, and comes with “Virtual Receptionist” call routing, voicemail-to-email delivery, and custom music and messages on hold and unlimited outbound calling in the US and Canada starting at $19.95/month.
2. Jive Communications
Jive boasts the highest customer satisfaction rating with almost five solid stars. The Jive Communications website features a “Total Cost of Ownership” (TCO) software program that allows potential customers to compare the cost of an onsite PBX (Private Branch Exchange) system to a hosted (off-site) PBX solution from Jive, complete with flowcharts. (Costs are especially reduced for Priority-1, E-Rate eligible institutions.) Many enterprise-class companies, educational organizations, and state and federal agencies currently rely on hosted business VoIP from Jive for their unified communications solutions. That’s because Jive Communications provides every aspect of a business telephony system from Internet to hardware to productivity-enhancing features for as low as $13.00/month per user.
RingCentral business VoIP service is focused on mobility and scalability for growing companies. For SMBs the complication of implementing, managing, and maintaining an office phone system can be dramatically reduced with RingCentral’s “cloud phone system.” Customers can use an analog phone with an adaptor, or lease Internet Protocol (IP) phones during the term of service. In the case of the latter, the IP telephones arrive pre-configured with dozens of robust business features, and just need to be plugged into the router, and activated. RingCentral customers also have the option of downloading the RingCentral Softphone application directly onto a laptop or other Internet-enabled device and making calls on their computer within minutes. Standard service starts at $24.99/month and the “Enterprise-Class plan is $49.99/month per user
As the number of new VoIP providers continues to grow, companies making the switch to VoIP need to realize that price is only one aspect of the decision making process. Long-term reliability, plan features, and customer service should all be considered when choosing a business VoIP provider. While the best products are still offered with no contract, the best deals on price are available to those willing to strike a longer service agreement. The bottom line is that in the current buyers-market, VoIP service providers are willing to negotiate. To compare plans, service reviews and providers, visit VoIP-Catalog.com.
