With this solution we expect to drive significant new revenues out of markets we couldn’t previously compete in with solutions that were starting at 50k, and required a huge effort to deploy. Small businesses, which is the vast majority here in Italy, have no time or money for that”

Delivering all the features expected of the typical large enterprise systems, VoicePlus enables small businesses to appear as a larger, more professional organization but at a price point that suits their budgets and a simplicity that suits their office environment.”
