Ooma Office Delivers Big for a Small Price
By Mini Swamy TMCnet Contributor
For companies big or small, phone services are an essential part of business; the only difference is that big companies can afford more expensive solutions adorned with advanced features, while small businesses have to be content with affordable solutions that may not always have all what they require.
But not anymore, for Ooma, which has been touted as a leader in smart home and business communications systems, has unveiled Ooma Office, a product that has been reportedly designed for small businesses.
“We believe that the size of a business should not determine phone service quality and features. Ooma Office will help small businesses save money and time while presenting themselves in the most professional way,” said Eric Stang, CEO at Ooma, Inc.
Ooma Office blends the ease of do-it-yourself installation with the power of cloud computing and the end result is a highly featured, quality phone system, the likes of which can only be found in far more expensive options.
For starters, as the Ooma Linx remote phone jacks utilize DECT (News - Alert) 6.0 technology, there is no tangle of messy wires and installation is also very simple.
And, the virtual receptionist sees to it that callers are treated well. It efficiently directs incoming calls and handles callers differently depending on whether the calls are made during business hours or after. HD voice technology ensures that the calls are crystal clear.
Businesses, regardless of size, have to grow and Ooma Office has plenty of room to allow for expansion. In fact, it is capable of hosting up to10 lines and can handle five phone extensions. Of course, its big business feature set ensures that all business necessities ranging from music-on-hold to conference bridges, virtual numbers and more are made available.
Comparability has always been an issue with new installations, but Ooma Office has no problems working alongside analog telephones and fax machines. Another refreshing feature is that small business owners can either opt to retain their existing phone numbers or get a new one for free.
The mobile workforce is an important constituent of a majority of small businesses that needs to stay connected to the office. Ooma Office has the answer and has 15 virtual extensions routed to external numbers. This means that customers can be served anywhere at anytime.
Ooma Office costs just $19.99 per line each month for unlimited calling in the U.S. and Canada and is expected to ship in Q2 2013.
Well, with 24/7 customer support also being provided, the reliable and affordable Ooma Office does seem like a good thing to have around.
