With the ability to host data and communications on the Internet, the cloud is a sure way for businesses to achieve flexibility and affordability in their everyday communications.
For Momentum, a leading provider of cloud-based business solutions, the cloud has enabled the company to successfully operate over 100,000 digital voice lines for more than 350 independent cable operators, municipalities, value-added resellers, managed service providers and direct subscribers throughout the nation.
The benefits to cloud-based business solutions are numerous, as outlined in a recent article. Momentum has focused largely on bringing these benefits to its clients, and helping them achieve flexible and quality services through the company’s smart, personalized telephony solutions.
Affordable set-up cost: While it was once necessary to break the bank on installation and maintenance of “traditional” phone systems, cloud business solutions doesn’t require on-site maintenance visits, tedious installation and a PBX (News - Alert) box. Instead, Momentum offers services from two simple usage plans and pool usage per business.
Long-term savings: Businesses can run their businesses more effectively, and at a cheaper cost, by hosting the phone system via the cloud. In addition to its extensive business offerings, Momentum also offers virtual services, like fax and a toll-free number.
24/7 business: Business and commerce can take place at anytime, anywhere, thanks to cloud-based telephony. With no servers on site, business will run as usual – even in the event of an emergency or crisis.
Enhanced functionality: With cloud-based business solutions comes an expansive list of useful and practical features, including voicemail to e-mail and call-forwarding. Momentum offers the standard features, like call block and call waiting, as well as enhanced features including Do Not Disturb, Find Me, and optional blocks.
Flexibility and scalability: By implementing business solutions via the cloud, small business environments gain the flexibility and scalability to adapt to changing needs at any time. As Momentum says: “It’s your business – you make the rules.”
