IP Phone (News - Alert) Warehouse was primarily founded to level the playing field for SMBs and consumers and give them access to VoIP products – generally regarded as the prerogative of ‘large businesses.’ With this in mind, it added Vodia Networks’ mini PBX (News - Alert) appliance to its shelves.
By making the Vodia mini PBX available through IP Phone Warehouse, Vodia Networks hopes to be able to reach a larger customer audience and serve the industry more efficiently.
Typically on-premise unified communications solutions with full PBX functionality are expensive and SMBs, working on tight or shoe-string budgets can ill afford to indulge in such luxuries. But with the entry of the Vodia mini PBX at IP Phone Warehouse, they will now have access to a low-power/high-performance appliance with A-Grade business telephony features.
“We introduced the Vodia mini PBX to fill the current gap in the SMB and SoHo space for a low-cost on-premise unified communications solution with full PBX functionality,” said company officials.
The new Vodia mini offers a very practical and affordable solution. Vodia mini PBX can also interwork with a SIP-based device or service. It also acts as a backup phone system for existing hosted or on-premise phone systems.
“With true plug and play functionality, the Vodia mini relieves businesses from learning the intricacies of IP telephony while at the same time benefitting from the rich features that come with this technology,” noted officials.
The Vodia mini PBX is considered to be the first hardware based IP-PBX appliance for SMBs and Home offices. Value added features such as CRM integration, Microsoft (News - Alert) Lync, fax-to-email and other functionality, normally seen only in larger unified communications solutions, will now ensure that they have higher productivity and a lower total cost of ownership.
SMBs and SOHO will thus have access to a fully integrated phone system that is not only compact in size but also provides the full suite of unified communications features.
