Telecoms in your pocket

We are so used to carrying iphone or smartphones with us wherever we go, it easy to forget just how amazing they are. One piece of trivia that is often rolled out is the astounding fact that our smartphones are actually light years ahead of the NASA computers that guided the Apollo moon landings.

If an iphone is more powerful than a room full of the American space agency’s computers, then it no surprise that a mobile phone is more than capable of providing effective business telecoms.

Utilising our sector knowledge, we have selected two of the finest telecoms mobile apps: CallSwitch One and the Gamma Horizon app. Both have advanced functionality and intuitive ease of use.

In both cases, it is like having an advanced desk phone – on your mobile phone

Telecoms apps - how they work

A telecoms mobile app provides another telephone number to your mobile phone. There is no need for two mobile phones or dual sims.

You can add a brand new number or ‘port’ your existing business number into the app. By adding anew number, you are now able to see immediately if an incoming call is business or personal. Similarly, you can choose which number displays when you call out. Say hello to a work/life balance by sending work calls to answerphone whenever you want to wind down.

You can add as many numbers as you wish. It is a phone system in your pocket.

The app replicates all those useful functions your office phone has.

You can transfer and divert calls, create hunt groups, set up incoming menu options (auto-attendant), transcribe answerphone messages to email, monitor calls, access phone statistics, add music on hold, inform callers of wait times… and so much more.


Your questions on mobile apps answered

Apologies, but we’re not sure yet. If you’ve not reviewed your telecoms services for some time, it’s likely that your bills are too high. And, it's also likely that savings with us could be substantial. Email us a copy of your bill. Rubix VT will offer you a calculation, free of charge. We’ll work out your monthly savings, incorporating your current monthly spend – and what you could be spending with us instead. Of course, there’s no obligation with our bills analysis.

A great deal, actually. With cloud-based telephony, Rubix VT enables flexible and remote working to the highest standards. Importantly, nobody needs to know that your staff aren’t in the office – even your hard-working receptionist. With confidence, your employees can make outbound calls and receive inbound calls with “softphone” functionality on their pcs or laptops.

For most businesses, a reliable, fast broadband more than suffices. Most addresses have access to 'SoGEA', a fibre broadband connection which delivers download speeds of up to 80 Mbps, and upload speeds of up to 20 Mbps. If not, we'll find you the best alternative that is available. If your business needs to transfer large amount of data, then you may want to consider installing a leased line, which offers powerful and lightning-fast uploads and downloads. If you have a regular broadband service such as SoGEA, it is likely you will be sharing your line with other users, but this is still secure and fast enough for most businesses. A leased line offers dedicated internet access and you won't be sharing your line with other users. Understandably, this is a more expensive option. If you wanted faster broadband without upgrading to a leased line, we offer business-grade broadband, and this could be your best option.  

Historically, many companies have run their phone system using servers based in their premises. It was an expensive option and is no longer necessary. Of course, if you prefer to have your own server and phone systems, we can always support your set-up. When we say we will 'host' your telecoms, we mean we will run it from the cloud ie. a data centre, which is secure and reliable. As well as being more cost-effective (less expensive kit to buy), it is also more flexible and is constantly being updated. For instance, the cloud can turn any device with internet access into a phone. Don’t worry – get in touch with us if you’re not sure.
