Leading cloud-based phone system provider Ooma Inc., recently announced on its blog that it intends to expand its Ooma Office phone system by including IP phone support. This means small businesses now have the freedom and flexibility to utilize a combination of phone technologies and devices (including analog phones, mobile phones, IP phones, and fax machines) on their Ooma phone system.
According to Ooma, some of their users have expressed the desire to be able to use IP phones (alongside their analog and mobile phones) as their business and phone system expands. Ooma has responded to this need with the introduction of IP phone compatibility. Eric Stang, CEO of Ooma, said, “We’re excited to expand our offering to include IP phones so our small business customers have the flexibility to choose the phone technology and features that are right for their business, without incurring a big monthly bill.”
Improvements to Ooma Office
Ooma Office now supports three popular IP phone models: Cisco SPA303, Cisco SPA 504G and Yealink SIP-T21P E2. They plan on increasing this selection in the near future.
These phones will be part of the Ooma Office phone system and will be offered exclusively by the company. In addition to basic features such as call waiting, three-way conference calling, message waiting indicator and caller ID, all three models also come with a set of advanced phone features useful for businesses (like 1-step and 2-step transfers, Do Not Disturb, and internal extension dialing).
For smooth and easy plug and play installation, Ooma CEO Eric Strang also said the IP phones will be pre-programmed to work with Ooma.
An Enterprise-Level Phone Solution at a Small Business Price
Ooma has consistently been ranked as one of the top Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) service providers due to its reliable service and quality business communication solutions offered at the best prices. In fact, readers of PCMag have chosen Ooma as the best VoIP service for small businesses for three consecutive years.
Starting at just $19.95 per user per month (with no contract required), businesses can take full advantage of Ooma’s complete business phone experience without the high price tag. Each Ooma account comes with a local and toll-free phone number, a virtual fax extension and a conference extension, plus a range of other big business features (including virtual receptionist, conferencing, ring groups, and much more). Setup is easy and customer support is offered 24/7.
Apart from improving communications, Ooma is also committed to protecting the privacy and security of its customers. All data are backed up in the cloud to ensure a high level of security and redundancy not usually available in on-premise business phone systems.
