Outsmart tomorrow, with Cloud Voice

Digital is coming

We don’t know the day yet, but we do know the year: 2025. That’s when analogue will be switched off. In only six years’ time organisations will have to go digital and adopt what was once seen as the technology of tomorrow.

With that looming on the horizon, it makes sense to transform your network ahead of time, to introduce the technology and outsmart tomorrow, today. This is the opportunity Cloud Voice offers Virgin Media Business customers.

“For organisations considering a SMART Workspace journey, choose Cloud Voice and your organisation could be totally transformed” 

 
 

In-house and in the cloud

So, if you want to embark on your SMART Workspace journey with Cloud Voice, we'll help you every step of the way. We'll manage the service, leaving you free to concentrate on what matters. From start to finish, front to back, we’ll take responsibility for everything on the network.

All the functionality you had with a traditional Public Branch Exchange (PBX) on your premises is brought in-house and into the cloud. And, as we have multiple instances on servers if one goes down, the other kicks in, giving you true resiliency.

Creating cost certainty

It gets even better. Unlike traditional telecommunications services, Cloud Voice operates on a licence-based model, so you pay a fixed monthly fee based on your usage – there are no nasty surprises.

Moving telephony and call handling to a single, hosted, managed network makes it easier to predict budgets. And that’s the kind of freedom that allows you to grow, disrupt, surprise and thrive.

Previously an organisation would have to buy a PBX regardless of whether they had 200 employees or 2,000. With the scale and agility of a cloud-based PBX, a business only needs to buy as many licences as it has employees. It’s easy to scale up or down.

Tim says, “We’re creating cost certainty for businesses on their telecoms spend. Previously an organisation would have to buy a PBX regardless of whether they had 200 employees or 2000. With the scale and agility of a cloud-based PBX, a business only needs to buy as many licences as it has employees. It’s easy to scale up or down, so you can respond quickly to the unexpected.”

Unleashing potential

Businesses have a choice of three Cloud Voice licences, each with different functionality and pricing, but all aimed at helping the differing needs for organisations to outsmart tomorrow.

The advanced Mobile Licence, in particular, has truly transformative potential. It takes all the functionality of your desk phone to your mobile, so you don’t have to use your mobile SIM for off-site calls. Mobile use is treated as an internal call, which is free. It’s cheap and easy to run. Everything’s controlled internally from a central management perspective, so you don’t need to deal with multiple supplier relationships and on-site maintenance.

A new era in communications

Cloud Voice will transform communications for organisations across the UK – it’s a huge opportunity for businesses to steal a march on their rivals and outsmart tomorrow.

Here at Virgin Media Business we offer a range of tailored SMART Advisory services looking at each organisation’s needs. Our consultants will show customers where they are today and guide them on a SMART Workspace journey preparing them for the future.
