NRG Vision, an energy consulting and engineering firm, is now connecting and communicating with the C2 Enhanced™ solution from Cypress Communications®. Selected for its ability to provide state-of-the-art functionality while cutting NRG Vision’s communications costs in half, C2 Enhanced includes all the indispensable aspects of a digital voice solution plus select VoIP features such as unified messaging and mobility call routing.

As a small and growing firm based out of Atlanta, NRG Vision focuses on energy-efficient project design, development and delivery for industry and commercial clients across the nation. Employees frequently travel to customer locations, making efficient and effective communications key to their success.

“Being a small and growing business that works with large corporations, it’s key we aren’t perceived as being too small to service our customers’ large energy efficiency needs,” said Josh Long, principal and owner at NRG Vision. “The overall suite of services the Cypress C2 Enhanced solution provides helps us establish a large enterprise-grade of capabilities and presents a professional image to our clients and prospects. Features like the auto attendant have allowed us to delay hiring a receptionist while not impacting the ease of connecting to our team. Our employees can spend 20-50% of their time out of the office, so the call routing and voicemail-to-email features help them stay connected to our clients. And, we can create multi-person audio conferences without having to purchase a dedicated conference bridge, which helps to keep our costs down.”

“Additionally, the solution comes with all the equipment and technology necessary for our phones and Internet, so we have one less administrative item to deal with. As our business continues to grow or our current equipment becomes obsolete, Cypress provides us with next generation technology—all with no additional expense.”

The C2 Enhanced solution features unlimited local and domestic long distance calling, 1.0-Mbps business-class Internet access, direct-dial phone number, unified messaging with voicemail and email for every employee, mobility call routing, local number portability, account codes, audio and web conferencing, hunt groups and group call pickup, and all the enterprise-grade PBX functionality users depend on such as call park, call hold, 3-way calling, speed dialing, do not disturb and more.

“For small-to-medium enterprises (SMEs), incremental increases in productivity can have a significant impact on how accessible employees are to clients and how easily they can generate new business,” said Frank Grillo, executive vice president of marketing and customer support at Cypress Communications. “With C2 Enhanced, SMEs get essential digital and VoIP features that they can use to increase productivity—all with no capital investment in hardware, no complex deployment and no technical expertise required on the part of the user.”

With the unified messaging feature, employees have 24/7 access to their voicemails—an invaluable convenience that makes it easy to stay connected. Users can receive voicemails in their Microsoft® Outlook inboxes; listen to messages via their computers, phones or mobile devices; and forward messages just like any email. Find-me/follow-me call routing enables users to easily create routing schemes to ensure that they never miss an important call. Routes can be set to ring multiple devices simultaneously or sequentially and can be further defined based on incoming number and time of day.

For over 25 years, Cypress has been managing enterprise communications and now offers everything from traditional voice and data services to SIP trunking and advanced hosted VoIP and hosted unified communications solutions in 38 states across the nation. With the new year underway, Cypress will continue to evolve its portfolio of hosted communication offerings to accommodate the ever-changing needs of SMEs.
