TelstraClear Launches Game Changing IP Telephony System
TelstraClear is launching a ‘game changing’ advanced IP solution that can transform the efficiency and effectiveness of small-medium size businesses.
TelstraClear has developed an IP based telephony system called IP Gateway which offers advanced call control functions, web-based management options, and the ability to connect multiple sites together in one easy system.
Head of Business for TelstraClear, Brenda Stonestreet, says the features that IP Gateway provides would previously have cost tens of thousands of dollars and was the strict domain of big business. Now TelstraClear can provide those features and more to businesses with five users or more.
“IP Gateway is a game changer, a truly disruptive technology,” Ms Stonestreet said.
“Every analogue PBX system in the country is now outdated. IP Gateway provides not only advanced functionality but comes without the initial capital outlay or ongoing maintenance costs. Every company that wants to enhance the way it operates needs to have IP Gateway. It will transform a business’s efficiency and effectiveness and increase productivity.”
“IP Gateway can have the same impact on telephony systems as online banking had in that sector. This is a product developed by TelstraClear that no other provider in New Zealand can offer to this scale.”
IP Gateway allows full call management via a browser, meaning staff can easily access the control features with a click of a mouse button. Functionality includes caller ID, integration with Microsoft Outlook contacts, call prioritisation and an individual’s work fixed or mobile can be extended to the user's home phone if required. Callers don’t need to know where the person they are phoning is or what phone they are answering –they just call one number.
Users who are working from home or who are on the road will still be able to access and control their incoming calls. IP Gateway’s scalability makes it ideal for organisations with sites ranging from large head offices through to small branch offices and remote locations.
“We have an IP Gateway option for all users,” Ms Stonestreet said.
“Our packages have varying levels of features to ensure that costs are optimised so you only pay for what you need. And switching to IP Gateway couldn’t be easier. We can even reuse your analogue phones.
IP Gateway is only available on TelstraClear's own network with a TelstraClear phone line and calling plan. Further details and features can be viewed at: www.telstraclear.co.nz/business
A limited number of IP Gateway demonstrations are available. If you would like one or you would like to interview Ms Stonestreet then please call:
