MegaPath Makes Switch to Hosted Voice Easy for Businesses

By Calvin Azuri, TMCnet Contributor

MegaPath, Inc., is one of the leading providers of managed IP data, voice and security services in North America. The company is making it easier for small to medium-sized businesses (SMBs) to realize significant cost savings and increase productivity by working with MegaPath’s (News - Alert) hosted voice. MegaPath is making it even easier for organizations to see increased cost savings with its free Cisco (News - Alert) SPA 303G phone for each employee, with the purchase of an unlimited or global hosted voice calling plan and a minimum of five lines.

The Rofo Group has been one of the first companies to take advantage of the benefits of the hosted voice free phone promotion to control costs. After moving to a new office location, Rofo tried Voice over IP (VoIP) with another provider, but was not happy with the call quality. Rofo was able to do a smooth transition from its previous provider to hosted voice without any downtime. Apart from this, hosted voice provides Rofo with the productivity-enhancing call features and quality it sought, without the upfront expenses.

“In order to stay ahead of the game, small-to-mid sized businesses need solutions that enable them to operate as productively and cost-effectively as possible. One way is to implement VoIP within their business. VoIP offers significant savings in both time and money. As a fully-managed voice and data services provider, we help smaller businesses save money on their communications services so that they can invest more in their core business,” said Bruce Chatterley (News - Alert), president of business markets for MegaPath.

Based on a recent report from Infonetics Research called “VoIP and Unified Communications Services and Subscribers”, the business VoIP market grew 8 percent in the first half of 2010. As more SMBs turn to VoIP as a way to cut costs, MegaPath is working with customers like Rofo to deliver voice solutions that cater to their unique business needs and save money without sacrificing quality. MegaPath recently merged with the Covad and Speakeasy (News - Alert) brands, and made it easier than ever to switch to hosted voice so that SMBs can take advantage of this solution.
