Hosted Voice Service


This feature-rich VOIP enterprise solution includes true unified communications; telephone numbers and workers are no longer tied to a single phone device. HVS enables users to make and receive calls on a desk phone, personal desktop computer, laptop and/or mobile device.

Productivity-enhancing features like voice mail to email, fax messaging and Simultaneous Ring ensure users never miss a call or a message. Specialty applications, such as Call Center with management features and reports, present multiple improvements over Uniform Call Distribution. The Call Pull feature frees the worker from his desk by enabling users to hand off calls between their desk phone, mobile phone and PC client, if equipped.
