SIP Trunks, Unified Communications and Hosted PBX
In order to run a successful business it is often necessary to look for cost saving measures to maintain the effect running of your business. One way in which you could make potentially massive savings is by streamlining your communications. Both commercial and residential customers have been paying far too much to their traditional telecoms companies for a service which has become antiquated and not fit for the current digital age. Fortunately these days there is far more choice for the consumer. Many business around the world have chosen to switch from their current telecoms provider to an Internet Telephony Service Provider (ITSP). COM-TEL Telecom, under the brand of VoIP International, are an ITSP with a growing reputation for providing first class, professional and affordable phone solutions for businesses in the UK and Europe.
Of course, there's far more to it than just making phone calls!
Businesses these days are looking for the most economical but reliable way to handle their Unified Communications (UC). Fax / Data transmissions, voice and video conferencing and global messaging facilities are equally as important, as is the ability to control and manage them without sacrificing quality.
Unified Communications help make your business more effective and responsive, minimising the time taken to reach important decisions, deadlines and meet targets. UC combines all of your important office marketing communications tools to gain access to data and voice anywhere you are in the world.
