“The plans are great value, even in terms of the minutes alone and when you add in our free features they’ll be hard to match”said Jude Flood, 2talk GM. “Businesses can be connected and making calls in minutes if they use our free 2talk softphone and our 2talk live web portal makes it very easy for staff to manage their phone features.”

Packed with 2talk’s standard range of free features the new business plans also include SIP Trunking and Extension Dialling functionality. Key 2talk features for businesses include:

- SIP Trunking – enables businesses to connect their IP capable PBX and save on calling costs while still controlling and owning their own PBX.

- Locate Me – find me; follow me service that enables users to have multiple phones ring when their 2talk line rings.

- Group Talk – allows businesses to realize the benefits of conference calling for meetings, training sessions and remote staff communications.

- Video Calling –business users can have face to face meetings without leaving their desk.

- Enhanced Voicemail –business users get their voicemail delivered to their email inbox allowing visual sorting and management of messages.

- Call Recording –businesses can record important calls and save them for reference.

- Auto Attendant –enables business to setup a simple IVR and direct calls to the correct destination without the need for a receptionist.

“We developed our SIP Trunking service in response to requests from the marketplace” said Ray Jackson, 2talk CTO. “A lot of mid sized businesses out there are using IP PBXs and they’re keen to interconnect with us. It means they’ll save heaps on their call costs and that they can take advantage of our free hosted features like call recording and network call forwarding. It’s the best of both worlds really.”
