The power of the Cloud and the future of telephony.

May 1, 2011

There are plenty of people talking about the Cloud these days, but what exactly does it all mean, how does it work and how can it benefit your business.

The Power of the Cloud

The market is dynamic and changing all the time and successful businesses must move with the times. The ready availability of internet solutions for telecoms is proving how powerful they can be to drive productivity and profitability especially in the current economic era of recovery.


Our main question is: why would you drag your business slowly through the traditional methods of communications and data storage when you can enjoy the benefits of the Cloud.

Cloud Telephony.

How it works:

VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) is simply, the transmission of voice traffic over the Internet.

Although originally designed for data networking, Internet Protocol (IP) has become a world standard for data networking.

The Benefits:


The number one reason to switch to VoIP technology is that it saves you money. It has become so popular because of these cost advantages to businesses and the added value which allows for better functionality. Without the need for an expensive PBX box in your office, there is no huge capital outlay, furthermore, the scalability of VoIP means that you do not have to invest in a system that will not accommodate your company to move, downsize or grow.


It is a hugely sophisticated, online self- management system for everything including numbers, sites, where you are and how you would like to be contacted. VoIP allows you to have your own call centre functionality that you can use as much or as little as you wish.


It enhances your business productivity by allowing you to have national numbers non- specific to your location, free site to site calls as well as allowing you to act as one single entity no matter where you are.

There is no need for a cumbersome PBX phone system to be stored in your office as everything  is hosted offsite in a secure and reliable data centre, backed up and monitored 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
