Big Business Presence on a Small Business Budget

Business VoIP solutions from Novera's Vonage solutions let you work the way you need to (and want to) by giving you the power to customize your phone system and mobilize your workforce. Learn more about our small business VoIP features that help your business compete with the big guys. The following are just a FEW of the features you'll enjoy with business VoIP.

  • Call Group
    Calls can be forwarded to multiple extensions that will ring simultaneously.
  • Call Forwarding
    Calls can be forwarded to a home phone or mobile number so that business calls are never missed.
  • Call Park 
    Call Park is a transfer service that allows you to “park” a call in a “spot” and have the call retrieved by another extension on the account.
  • Call Queue 
    The Call Queue feature is a dynamic “virtual waiting room” for inbound callers, allowing you to dictate the on-hold experience and efficiently manage call volume.
  • Call Transfer
    Even in a company with two employees, the ability to transfer a call is an important part of looking professional. Sure you can just hand the phone to another employee, but what if you are both working from home in different locations? Our cloud PBX service makes it easy to transfer calls and connect workers, even when they’re in different locations.
  • Local or Geographic Number 
    Portray a local presence in any additional market by publishing a local phone number in any area code.
  • Main Company Number 
    This number is attached to the main Virtual Receptionist to allow incoming callers to reach the appropriate department or individual by selecting an option from a menu.
  • Multiple Devices on One Extension 
    If you’re looking for a multi-line phone system that can handle multiple calls across many devices, you will be glad to know that you can use up to three different phones on the same Vonage Business extension (e.g., desk phone at work, desk phone at home, softphone on your smartphone or laptop). Use the same phone number, voicemail box, and extension for all your registered phones at no additional cost.
  • Music on Hold 
    Have you ever called a company and been put on hold, and then all you hear is complete silence? It feels as if you have had the door shut in your face, and you are left wondering if the person has just hung up on you. As a small business owner, you want to make sure that your customers and potential customers feel like you care about them. Vonage Business Music on Hold feature is a very important part of indicating to your callers that you are a professional company that has its customers’ interests at heart.
  • Virtual Mailbox 
    Used to gather voicemail messages for a particular function or for employees that do not need full phone service.
  • Virtual Receptionist 
    When it comes to Vonage’s key features for business, Virtual Receptionist is not only one of the most popular, but it’s also the feature that most businesses set up first. This sophisticated auto attendant lets you create customer pathways, routing your callers to the appropriate department or individual for a streamlined experience.
  • Toll Free Numbers
    Toll Free Numbers let your customers in the U.S. and Canada call you without incurring any long distance charges – perfect for giving your company a professional image.

The Difference Between VoIP and Traditional Phone Technology

Posted on Wed, Feb 10 2016 @ 11:00 AM

VoIP technology can be confusing to people who have never experienced the difference. Here, we outline the basic differences between VoIP technology and your traditional business phone service. Your modern business needs VoIP … out with the old and in with the new! 

voip2.jpg

IP NETWORK CONNECTION (VoIP)

VoIP technology uses a completely different infrastructure than traditional phone service does. Instead of your phone calls traveling over the phone company’s network, Internet broadband service connects your local IP Network to the cloud where most VoIP providers host their feature-enabling PBX (Private Branch Exchange).

The difference is truly revolutionary: Access to phone service and the Internet are achieved over the same broadband connection. This opens us features and mobility options for your business that enhance your capabilities and save you money. Rather than having outdated hardware in your office, VoIP system can be updated remotely and automatically, which can make the costs considerably less than traditional business phone systems.

TRADITIONAL PHONE TECHNOLOGY

While traditional phone service has been around for many years, the technology is increasingly regarded as antiquated and expensive.

Business phone service is commonly delivered over the PSTN (Public Switched Telephone Network) with either an on-site PBX (private branch exchange) with trunks to the phone company or POTS (plain old telephone service) lines. (That just SOUNDS old, doesn’t it?)

PBX is installed at the business location to enable calling features, like routing.  The problem is, it is typically more expensive to install and maintain, and it is vulnerable to events ranging from natural disasters to vandalism.

POTS are more similar to your basic home phone service and lack the robust features modern businesses require.

As business VoIP systems gain prominence, traditional providers must adapt to meet business needs, a process that is proving to be slow and costly.

YOUR BUSINESS DESERVES THE BEST

With Novera and our relationship with Vonage, you get the best of both worlds. You can take advantage of cost-saving, world-class VoIP and still have the personalized attention and support that Novera is well known for.

We’d love to talk with you about how we improve your business phone systems through the power of VoIP!

Which is Better, Traditional Phone Service or Business VOIP?

Posted on Mon, Dec 07 2015 @ 09:32 AM

The technology between traditional phone service and business VoIP solutions differs greatly and business owners should be informed when making a choice between the two. Over last ten years, the convergence of VoIP technology and the cloud-hosted PBX has revolutionized the business phone landscape, and it's important for you understand the benefits as a business owner.

Traditonal Copper-wire Connection vs. High-speed Internet

Traditional copper-wire service: This technology has been in place for many, many years. The technology that runs over telephone wires in nearly every community in the United States.

High Speed Internet : Business VoIP phone systems connect over high-speed Internet and are rapidly gaining popularity among small to mid-sized businesses.

Cloud-hosted vs. On-premise

VoIP providers like Vonage host the business phone system’s nerve center in the cloud. Traditional providers build and maintain their PBX on premise at each businesses' office. The real benefit is in hte cloud hosted solution -- it has truly revolutionized the business phone landscape. Cloud hosted VoIP systems now provide small businesses the advantage of new and more-capable calling features, full mobile access, and dramatically reduced pricing.

Small and mid-sized companies can now easily leverage what are normally considered “big business” phone features – and do business however and wherever they choose.

As an example: 

  • Using interactive voice response to answer and route inbound calls to a specific employee or department.
  • Placing customers into a call queue as they wait for a representative, or automatically request a return call when the next representative becomes available.
  • Maintaining communications through natural disasters by simply plugging their phones into a different high-speed access point or through mobile applications.

With Novera Payment Solutions' Vonage VoIP solution, you receive an array of benefits over traditional copper-wire phone technology.

You Get All the Latest Features Without Requiring Hardware Upgrades at Your Location

The beauty of the cloud hosted VoIP solution is that by simply making changes to the software that sits in the cloud, customers can seamlessly receive new features to their system without requiring hardware upgrades or software for every single business phone or location.
