Foehn, a provider of managed communications, has unveiled a cloud communications and open-source phone systems guidance for SMEs. The guidance includes educational content such as videos, case studies and whitepapers aimed at SMEs looking to switch to cloud communications with softphone systems and open-source telephony.
The buyers’ guide to hosted VoIP telephony explains the several benefits of cloud telephony and VoIP phone systems. With hosted VoIP telephony, users benefit from the functionality of a private branch exchange (PBX (News - Alert)) that serves a business or office from the cloud to the desktop. In this guide, Foehn's operations director, Gary Muchmore, discusses how SMEs can choose the best solutions for their business communications needs by keeping hosted VoIP phone systems simple.
Foehn's managing director James Passingham introduces the business benefits of modern hosted telephone systems for SMEs. He explains the several benefits of hosted telephony that range from lower cost of ownership and scalability to the need of minimal IT support.
In a video resource titled, “Hosted telephony - the trend of using phone systems hosted in the cloud,” James Passingham discusses the key trends for SMEs using hosted phones. For example, the video covers the latest trends such as start-ups exclusively using cloud phone systems for their e-mail, applications and telephone services.
Another resource, a case study of Low Cost Travel explains how the Asterisk (News - Alert)-based PBX solution helped Low Cost Travel increase call center conversion by 20 percent, call handling productivity by 25 percent and customer retention by 40 percent. The open-source VoIP also changed that company’s business to support remote workers to reduce their cost per employee, to aid their growth.
In another case study, Simon Trigg, director of psychometric test experts, Onetest Express discusses how hosted phone systems met his need for simplicity and flexibility when he was setting up his business.
